Great for Moms!

Sales of the R2 Fish School Kit continue to go swimmingly :-).

As of 5pm today (Friday), we're #34 on the Amazon bestseller list of the entire Home & Garden category, which has something like a zillion different items for sale in it - literally.

If you throw out those that are clearly being purchased as Mother's Day gifts (vacuum cleaners, blenders and flower bouquets), we're #20!

How cool is that!?

Then again, maybe people are buying our kit for Mom too. Not a bad idea. Better than flowers.

In fact, don't tell her, but I'm giving my mom a copy of the kit this Sunday. She doesn't have a fish, but she'll get a kick out of it anyway. Of course, I got it for free, but she doesn't have to know that. It's the thought that counts :-)

The picture of the fish playing soccer on your homepage was featured on the caption competition of Have I Got News For You!!

I recognised it straight away :)

I guess you already knew, but still, it's pretty cool.

We've successfully trained all kinds of fish, including goldfish (common and fancy), Oscars, Parrot Cichlids, even Bettas. Check out this page:

for some pointers about picking a fish. And let me know if you try it!

Glad to help! I think you'll find training pet fish to be a fun and rewarding hobby.
