Many of my fish have learned who feeds them and from what container. If
someone else is with me they are more reticent and if I pick up a different can of
flake food they are not as eager, until they find out it is just as tasty.
However, if feeding live tubifex worms or frozen bloodworms, they lose all
inhibitions. They learn very quickly.
