it must be something with jewels, i have a bunch of juveniles in my 55, and i need to use 1 hand to distract them while i do anything, or they swarm my hand/arm. and my paradise fish... well, i think he has a taste for human flesh.

Surprisingly my zebra danios bite me every time I put my hand/arm in the water. It's surprised me that even those little guys will give you a pretty good pinch. I'm sure a large cichlid would give a good bite!

My guppies do this every time my hand enters the tank. It feels so weird

Back when I had tiger barbs the entire school would nibble my arm every time I put it in the tank.

No biting, but the other day as I was feeding, I had the lid open and all of the sudden I got soaked! Harlequin Rasboras and black skirt tetras can make quite a splash.

Yea my African cichlids splash water everywhere when I feed them too. One time it splashed into the jar of food and ruined all of it.

I sometimes think mine are going to fly out of the tank when I feed them.

Ive been experimenting with my jewels and they are not scared of anything. I can put the vacuum or my hand in right by them and they just look at it. If I try to chase them away they just slowly swim backwards looking at it the whole time.

At a lake where my aunt lives, there is always swarms of fry. There is a big rock about 10-15 feet out from the shore, and the fry will go over there often because it's in the sun so there is algae and stuff for them to snack on. It's fun to go swim over to the rock with some goggles on, then go under the water and sit on the rock. All the fry will come over and nibble on you and see what you are doing. It's really fun,
