How it Works
The kit uses simple, positive reinforcement training techniques to easily teach your fish to do a variety of tricks.
When you first place the feeding wand into the fish tank, your fish will swim away from it. As soon as your fish sees that the wand is providing a little treat, your fish will approach it. During the first training session, your fish will follow the wand for a treat as you wave it through the water in the tank.
When your fish starts to associate the wand with a treat, training is a snap. The kit uses simple step-by-step instructions to progressively teach your fish tricks.Soon your fish will be able to do advanced tricks like the tunnel, limbo, fetch and chimney, and be well on the way to learning sports skills like soccer, football, the slalom and more.
The R2 Fish School kit is an incredible behavioral science tool that demonstrates the basics of all learning, along with the often under-estimated intelligence of pet fish.

Frequently Asked Questions
I hear that fish only have a 3 second memory. Is this true?
No. This is just a myth. Fish have demonstrated the ability to identify different colors, swim through mazes, tell time, and even recognize types of music. Fish wouldn't survive in nature if they didn't have a more capable memory. This fish training kit proves that fish are way smarter than most people think and foils the myth that goldfish have poor memory.
Can my fish learn any tricks?
Yes, absolutely. Fish may be trained using positive reinforcement techniques with food rewards. The R2 Fish School kit gives you step-by-step instructions on how to shape the behavior of your fish. The tricks are meant to build upon each other. The very first step is to teach the fish to make an association between the feeding wand and a food reward. This normally happens very quickly. After this step, the kit explains how you can teach your fish more tricks that become progressively challenging. The R2 Fish School training kit was developed to work with all sorts of fish 1-6 inches in length. Fancy Goldfish, Moor Goldfish, Oranda Goldfish, Bettas, and Cichlids are among the tropical freshwater fish which have been trained successfully.
What size tank are recommend for training?
A small weighted base that fits any size bowl or tank is included with the kit. This base allows you to do all beginner level tricks in aquarium fish tanks of any size. A standard 10-gallon or larger rectangular tank is recommended for the advanced sports tricks. This lets you to train your fish with all the tricks in the kit.
What should I do if I want to train just one of my fish in a crowded tank?
The training tools should only be placed in the tank during short training sessions. We recommend that you use a standard inexpensive tank divider during training sessions so you can isolate the specific fish you want to train. Tank dividers may be purchased from any aquarium store.
How long will it take to teach tricks to a fish?
On average, you'll only need two 15-minute sessions daily. Tricks in the kit build upon each other and each trick takes a week for your fish to completely learn. With steady training, it should only take a couple of months for your fish to complete every trick in the kit.
Should I teach my fish cool tricks?

Scientists say animals (such as fish) experience less stress and live healthier, longer lives when given enrichment.
