Guppies are smart... kinda


Recommended Posts

I noticed this with mollies I wanted to rehome from a planted tank.  They quickly learned to avoid the net.   Then they learned to avoid food I put near the net to trap them.  Then they learned to run and hide as soon as  they saw me in the room.  Eventually used a baited bottle trap to get them out.  The next time I moved mollies, I wised up and used their intelligence against them.  Patiently trained them that net = food.  Took a week or so of passively dipping the net in at feeding time until they swam into the net on their own.  Fish ain’t dumb, when it comes to doing fish things!
