My zebra danios seem to think they are little piranhas or something, whenever I put my arm in the tank they swarm around it and constantly nip at me. Of course, it doesn't hurt at all since they are only about an inch long. 😄

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,
Jeez, I feel sorry for you. The closest injury I've had to the one on your arm was caused by a very small piece of string that got wrapped around my finger and wasn't noticed until it got yanked off. it felt like I stuck my finger into the middle of a fire. I know it's not fish caused but it's the closest I've got to a bristle worm injury.

Was redecorating my cichlid tank and lifted up a large rock to find my one spot domino syno catfish and my hi fin spotted pleco sheltering under it. Needless to say, I got barbed by both of them.

I got more injuries fishing related than fish keeping. I almost lost part of my left nipple to a blue crab and a drunk friend.

Ok, I can now add my clownfish to the list.
The little bugger has recently gone all Cujo on me and relentlessly attacks me whenever I'm working in the tank.
You have any idea just how darn irritating a 2.5" fish can be when you are trying to rearrange frags!!!!

Little stinker actually bit me yesterday and hung on for a second like a pit bull and it HURT!
then my pit bull/bull mastiff dog bit me by accident yesterday too!
What is up with that!?

is it a full moon or something?

You should wash your hands after eating doritos/beef jerky... critters love junk food!

My endlers always act like they're starving to death. They seem to view my arm as a large hunk of juicy meat whenever I do water changes. Their little nibbles are nothing painful though.
