My coral banded shrimp pinched me so hard I started bleeding. Got rid of her because she was doing the same to other fish in my tank!

I'd watch peppermint shrimp also Ivan. I had one thrash my frogspawn and I've heard similar stories about them

I have to disagree with you there... I'f i can gently scoop something up with my hands and gently place it in the bag I think It would be much less stressful than catching it with a net.

+1000 i try to hand scoop any inverts if possible and 9 times out of 10 they don't put up much struggle at all since 90% are hand fed to begin with. stick a net in the tank and the stats flip to 9 times out of 10 the animal freaks out. Only ones that give me problems regularly are the sally lightfoot crabs. They don't like being handled at all. But they have only pinched me once and it wasn't all that painful.

Hands are gentler than nets. Hands don't catch up on scales. But I'm not catching any rabbit fish that way soon.

Lions, triggers and ......... Rabbits????? OH MY????? Wait thats not right.
Its fairly easy to know what to NOT touch in fish though. Tangs, rabbit fish, triggers, some puffers, etc. etc.
