I doubt if B.F.Skinner ever thought his training methods would be applied to soccer training for goldfish, but they are now! Dr. Dean Pomerleau has developed a training kit to aid you in training pet fish to play soccer and other un-fish like sports, using the operant conditioning training methods he uses to train larger sea animals.

The RB Fish School kit, produced by R2Solutions has all the tools you need, including a training manual, a training video, and all the equipment your pet fish needs to play. Here are:
