    Trick or training?

    I am at a jaw dropping loss to know how this was done? Trained fish - amazing - YouTube Hand signals, food and repetition have no idea but am in awe of the result.

    Tell me this is a joke. It is possible( in theory) but that would kill the goldfish. They don't look like expensive fish but cheap or not they are living things that can feel pain.

    No joke. Watch it again and watch the swimming movements real well. They appear to be being dragged along and not really swimming.

    Oh my. I thought you were joking, too. There are points where the fish move without moving their fins. I thought it was computer magic, but now I'm disgusted.
