Whats more fun than cleaning an oscar tank and having them eyeball your fingers like its a delicious kabob? They got me all the time. The exciting anticipation from hand feeding them was too much to pass up.
Yeah, id do it again
Thats a funny story about the Lanceolatus Grouper. Very cool fish! What did they do with them when they grew out of their tanks?

They were sent to a large public aquarium, I believe the grouper went to Florida.
The nurse shark I had was orphaned at the store, guy literally brought it in and left it. After my caring for him for around 6 months we finally found him a home at a public aquarium in Tokyo.
this was all 30+ years ago when I worked in the industry.

I'm guessing hermit crabs count as well.....they can really hurt, especially when they decide not to let go for the next half hour!

Ever been attacked or hurt by your critters?

I had a Betta who lived in a community tank with assorted tetras who always stool food from him. I always hand fed him. He always decider to bite my fingers before he ate the freeze dried bloodworms. At first it was just a tickle but then he taught himself how to hold on to my finger and twist around (like what sharks do with seals) that began to hurt. To combat that I would hold the blood worm in the water and my fingers just above. Eventually he started to jump and bite not what I was planning to have him do, but guess what I taught my fish how to jump. That's I think is impressive.

it's not how big or small a critter is it's how many teeth he has that are razor Sharpe
I've taken many hits by many fish but I do believe the black domino damsel I have has the sharpest teeth I've seen yet ,
don't over look our crustation friends , I thought for sure I lost a finger to my purple lobster he latched on and didn't want to let go , if you don't know what pain is try this!!
but yes my biggest enemy is the Bristol worm not only do they hurt but can scar you for life , I found out the hard way I'm allergic to these stupid worms , I had a larger one crawl up my arm as I was working on my tank , 2 days later this is what came of it, never look at these guys as harmless as you can see , I dealt with this almost 2 months to heal,

WOW, that's really something!

How long ago did that happen?
Not to be rude, but could it be because of other issues that have compromised your immune system and that is why the bad reaction?


Either way I know I'm gonna steer clear of them now.

but yeah, don't discount the little critters, my worst experience came from a barb from a saltwater cat that was no more than 3" long.
Very ill, 102 fever, shakes, major rash at the puncture site, etc. I thought I was going to die.

My goodness! I'll have to read through this thread later!

All we've had thus far is biting bettas, but that doesn't hurt, just feels like a vacuum kiss or something. Or a little nip.

This isn't in an aquarium but I once caught a small channel cat and it barbed my finger. It only bled a bit but left a red mark for a while.
