My cleaner shrimp comes and climbs up and down my arm when It's in the tank, pretty cool, I fed it tonight out of the palm of my hand.

I tried hand feeding last night - mine are a bit timid, but one of them (I have two) took a flake from me. I'll work on coxing them out, but I'm going to start with tongs to cut down on the amount of time my hands are in the tank. As it is I'm in there too much to adjust, bast, feed polyps, etc.
