You can train them to swim through hoops and stuff but if he's nipping at other fish.....

What tank is he in and what stock?

Is his tank next to another tank where he is snapping at the fish trying to get to them? If so i would just get black construction paper and put it on the side of his tank so he cant see the other tanks. If hes trying to get at the other fish, keep an eye on your snail. ( mystery snail?) some betas that are aggressive nip off the snails antennas and the snails are stressed.

Yup, all my fish ( including my beta) avoid the net at all costs. One even jumped over the center support beam to get away from it. Scared the pee out of me!

Is it possible to get a bigger tank? Your betta (and snail) would be happier!
