Teaching fish to Hunt?

Is it possible to train fish to hunt, like how you train dogs to hunt?

I got this idea from reading something about hunting dogs yesterday.

Occupied Tanks;
1 ten gallon tank
1 five gallon tank


empty;
a few jars

Fish innately know how to hunt, as it pertains to filling their belly. Could you train them to hunt like dogs? No, they do not have the mental capacity, nor do you have the control over the fish to facilitate such training.

Can you train them to do things? Yes, using food rewards. But a food reward loses it's effectiveness when the task involves eating food....

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
