My otos aren't scared of me

I'm not sure if I should be jazzed about this or scared. My otos don't respond to me it seems. I've had them the longest. At first they were very skittish fish and wouldn't have anything to do with my big fleshy hands. Now it seems they could care less about them. I do so much plant work it seems they've acclimated to them poking around. I was literally able to bet the back of my Oto today and then he in turn decided to start sucking on my index finger.

Always neat to see what time can do to a fish haha.

I think my otos are the same way. Normally when I work in my tank, I kind of want my fish to get out of my way so no one gets hurt, but with my otos, I have to kind of nudge them out of the way.
