It's great to see so many people are doing this. My wife thought I was weird when I let my cleaner shrimp jump on my arm (much like Brian's does) and run up and down it while I do minor tank maintenance. My atlantic hermit crab is skiddish as first, but if I've got a piece of Forumula Two in my hand, he'll eat all day long. I haven't tried it with my tangs, mainly because I didn't want to stress them out too much.

When I first got my pinkspotted goby I would hand feed. It's been a while since i tried it, but he isn't scared of my hand at all, in fact, sometimes i have to push him away if I am trying to do something with the rocks. I like this kind of behavior, makes me feel like a proud daddy.

My two Shunk Shrimps will sit in my hand. Plus try to clean it as well.

Mostly they just wait for me to feed the Aneome and steal his food. I'll usually set some seaweed in my hand if I need a distraction for them.

Manny and Moe (my peppermints) love to clean my hands.. it is hilarious to watch them swim upside down from one side of the tank to the other just to get to me..
I am jealous. I never see my peppermint shrimp. How do you get them to come out during the day?
Yesterday my sixlined wrasse thought about eating krill from my hand. He kept swimming around eyeballing it, but wasn't quite brave enough.
