Over the last few days when I was feeding my oscar I would put the pellet in the water and spin my hand in a circular motion holding the food until my oscar would follow, then I would give him the pellet. At first it would take a while for him to finaly spin. Now if I put my hand anywhere near the tank with or without food in my hand he will stare at it for a bit and then spin on his own ahahah I dont know if I should feel proud and accomplished for teaching my fish a trick or embaressed for having too muuch spare time on my hands lol

I just have to watch myself it's so easy to over feed, when he spins on his own how can I not toss him a treat ahaha

Finally got a few videos on my phone. It wasn't easy my Oscar is camera shy. Was going to upload them last night but my internet wasn't working so that was fine, a few hours later my phone completely stopped working and wouldn't turn on and as of now still won't. Now I am going to have to try to sneak another video with my iPad and that's even more difficult. As for my phone if that don't start working I will be throwing it out the window.

Ahahah thanks. It was easier than I expected. Just touch the water with the food behind him and he turns around for the food and that would count as a spin so I would feed him and within about 2 days he caught on. Now he uses it against me he knows if I'm in the room and he spins he will get a small nibble of food lol
