Training fish to play soccer

I got this cool kit off ebay about a year ago called the R2 fish school. I tried teaching my platies, but the weren't very good canidates.

I'm getting a betta for my new 5 gallon so I'm looking forward to teaching my new guy some tricks.

Anybody have experience with this kit?

I just got one for Christmas! I've only tried the feeder wand trick and it's somewhat working....

I'd personally use no decorations in the 5g, just gravel if you want. Then train the fish, and eventually you can add deco/plants....

gold fish are the best candidates as they train the easiest , They had something like this on myth busters a while back but it was basketball , but I still think this is the silliest thing they ever came out with . but I'm sure it's funny to watch if you can get them to do it
Fish are like lifesavers
They come in different colors
