All of my fish except the shrimp goby swarm my hand even without food... or anything else I put in there. I've read posts about people wanting to know how to catch a fish. If I put a net in I have to work to keep them out of it.

I forgot to add I can just put my hand in the water (no food) and my convict tang will come to me and let me pet/touch it.

Greets all. First post on the forum

I have 2 baby false percs that I got when they were under an inch long. They are now just getting some size and I'm assuming one has become female since it's slightly bigger than the other. These guys are right at the surface with their heads out of the water and mouths open when I go to feed the tank when I come home from work "Feed Me Seymour!!" hehe. My 2 favorite fish by far.

Here's a strange one though. I have a little emerald mithrax crab that hitched in on a piece of LR. Almost never see him and sometimes I wonder if he has died or something. This guy will come up and take nori from my hand on the rare occasion that I see him.

My tangs and shrimp do the same thing. My shrimp are crazy when i put fakes in the tank, the flakes float on the surface and the shrimp go flying to the surface upside down, and the walks to the flakes. Its like the shrimp are waliking upside-down at the surface.

My lunare wrasse will jump out of the water to get something in my hand. When feeding, i have to be careful of him because he is so reckless abandon that he'll launch out of the water when he grabs food on the surface. But he's just so fearless he'll take anything from my hand.

My cleaner shrimp, eels, mandarin, tangs and angels will and sometimes are feed by hand. My eels are always eating from my hand. Still have all fingers.
