I think i hit a turning point with getting my sister interested when she handfed my Comets orange last weekend. At one point she said thats it it tried to bite me. I replied quickly with no it was giving you a kiss. Got a nice Aww from her and she runs to my tanks when she visits now. Let the family feed your fish when they visit and they might start seeing them as genuine pets as opposed to just animals in a tank.

Thanks, I will! They definitely do eat from my hand - you can't go wrong with some pea

I hadn't thought of bribing - if only there was a decent cafe near my lfs, I might just get away with that for awhile.

I'm sorry to hear that. I do get the same type of noises (in addition to the pained looks).

LOL you wouldn't believe the stuff I have stashed in the closets and drawers that my wife doesn't know about. "What did you buy for the fish now?"........ "Nothing honey. I've had this Fluval C3 for a long time now. Don't you remember?" OS.
