BH & Soficrow:
I grow tired of the endless...vicious...pointless personal attacks that take place between the members of this board. WHY CAN'T YOU PEOPLE STAY ON
THREAD!!! DEAL with the subject matter...and prove *it* wrong! No...it takes ME

IGNORE on one another?
Now on the subject matter of this
thread, I am horrified that no one is even aware of the very real and serious problem of goldfish inbreeding

Now, look at that fish!!!! Do you
see any sign of intelligence there???
It's a tragedy, I tell you. Once again, man's stupidity and arrogance has managed to breed the smarts right out of what was once a very scholarly
creature! Yeah, that's right! I said SCHOLARLY. All that remains as evidence of their former intellectual capabilities are the paltry remembrances
invoked by our very own language. Where exactly is it you think the term "school of fish"

let me share what little I know on the subject.
ALL trained fleas require
the proper environment...without it, they are simply untrainable.
Beyond that, there are two schools (oh, the irony) of thought on how to proceed....
There is the positive reinforcement camp:
And there is the negative reinforcement camp:
I'm not certain which method is most effective, but if you try the spray, I'd be real careful...You wouldn't want to accidentally get any of the
ones you've already trained...
