My blue jaw trigger hand feeds but I need to be careful.

Make your own foods. It's much cheaper, fish are healthier and you have control over what goes in the tank. It's simple. You won't go back the first time you see what a frenzy it makes when you feed it.

Clown trigger, my two tangs, snowflake eel, and the blue jaw get hand fed anytime I'm not in a rush. That let's me occupy them and slip some food on the other side for my clowns and foxface since they aren't as food aggressive.

It's not all that fun until you get a fish that can do some damage lol. My eel and triggers are the more enjoyable fish to hand feed. Danger always adds fun to the adventure lol. BUT i don't recommend hand feeding anything once you get bit. lol

I was making a joke and saying once you get bit, I'll deny that I said anything about feeding the fish by hand. Cichlids dont have teeth. Go one round with a trigger, puffer, eel etc etc. and you'll think twice before sticking your fingers in there again. It slowed me down but I still do it.
