LOL....There is an answer to this believe it or not. if you quickly thrust your hand into the water and jerk it out.(with the fish) the surface tension in the water makes an air pocket forms around your had. Same reason you can quickly dip your hand into hot oil and not get burnt. You must be pretty quick with it but....you must be pretty quick to catch a fish in your had to so it makes sense.

Another insightful discussion. It would probably be best then to catch the fish with my hand, but my fish will run away from that too, since they still hate me and I still don't know why :-(

Try just standing around the tank (maybe a foot or so infront of the tank) relatively still for a while and maybe they'll want to come out. I do that with my cichlids sometimes

When I'm in the room for a while they usually come out, but I usually have to be across the room and for at least and hour. I still like the ugly theory the best.

To the fish you probably seem like the vengeful god that comes in and moves the mountains of their world and create sandstorms with a whoosh of your mighty hand! If they start building you shrines, that might cause some unwanted fish deaths in the name of sacrifice!

Krypt is so far the winner in my book. Imagine how afraid you'd be if something not your species came by and decided your house looked better on the other side of the tank, where you pooo. I'm sure you'd be afraid.

The cave goby likes to move around empty snail shells (he appears angry when he does this). Does that count as a shrine?

Yes, be worried, if you see him trying to drag other fish to it, it could be bad.
