"Speed Training" - When Your Fish Needs an Extra Challenge

I continue to be amazed at how good Comet is getting at his tricks. As a challenge, I've started timing his training session, so see how quickly he can perform his nine tricks three times each. This morning, he got through them all in just under 20 minutes. I had trouble keeping up - rewarding him with food after each successful trick. If you happen to be watching on the Fish School webcam you better tune in at the right time, since it happens pretty quick!

Here is the video of Comet performing all of his tricks:



While a typical training session takes a lot longer than this 30-second video, much of the time is spent trading equipment in and out of the tank. So this clip gives you a pretty good feel at how quick Comet is. He's very determined and a lot of fun to watch!
