Well I think she's more attractive than me. She didn't want me to post a picture here though...

Out of every single fish between my FW and SW tanks, there's only one that likes me. His name is Ctanley and I got him by accident with some ghost shrimp when he was the size of a grain of rice. Now he's a beautiful, adolescent male guppy. Every other fish hates me.

I don't think ugly has anything lto do with it. You are the one poking at them with the syphon hose and moving things around. Do you have a sump. do your water changes thruogh the sump and leave the DT alone and your fish will come around.

lol my false percula is about an 1"- 1 1/2". he dosnt ram me per say, he just likes to weave around my hand. and yes i agree, its more startling than it hurting. whats worse is when im moving a rock with some coral on the side and he comes and nips me and i drop the rock onto another rock crushing the coral, atleast thats what im afraid of doing. so i hafta dip both hands to sho him away while i move stuff around. sadly he atleat gets me twice everytime

i think catching your fish by hand instead of a net really gets a bond going... my fish try to eat my hand every time its in the tank now. they never did that until i started catching them by hand. they really dont like the nets

How do you move around the tank? Do you move with jerky, sudden, quick motions? Or do you move slowly and methodically around the tank?

I've found that my fish will freak with quick sudden motions. If my kids, or people that are unfamiliar with the tank and move all jerky around it, come up to the tank, they'll scatter. When my daughter thinks about her movements and moves slower and more deliberate, the fish don't scatter. Just a thought...
