    One of my Bettas showing me who's boss.

    Please note I am not touching the glass, and after we play this game he gets bloodworm as a treat.

    He's beautiful!

    I've had quite a lot of fish, over the years, that have displayed similar behaviour. It's mostly good old Pavlovian conditioning at work, IMHO [​IMG]

    I might have mentioned before that our old oscar 'taught' my son to feed him (the oscar) on demand; he used to jump up and bang his condensation tray, my son would say, "oh, Gormok wants feeding", drop whatever he was doing and go give Gormok exactly what he wanted [​IMG]
     
    And all the angels I've ever had have wriggled like puppies when they see me.

    The cheeky Crown tail was a true rescue, I was doing a PC job for a client and he was living in an unfiltered 2 liter vase half dead, constipated and his fins were a mess they still are but hes a crown tail,  and was going to be flushed down the toilet, So I took him home, that was 2 months ago, He has come a long way.
