Brainiac's Hoop Progress

I'm happy to report that Brainiac, our other fish, who I previously reported was starting to learn the hoop, is making good progress. For the last few days, I've been training him twice per day for five minutes each time, coaxing him up to and through the adjustable hoop with the feeding wand included with the soon-to-be-available R2 Fish School Training Kit as shown in this photo.

Today he "got it". He swam through the hoop five times entirely on his own, without my prompting or luring him. Of course I rewarded him each time with food using the feeding wand for a job well done.

We're very proud :-). Next I'm planning to make the hoop smaller, and move on to other tricks. Watch out Comet - here comes Brainiac!
