Atitagain Posted November 23, 2021 Share Posted November 23, 2021 Last Thursday I was feeding my Oscar, he likes to probe his head out of the water. I guess he wants the food a 1/2 second quicker than if it hit the water? Well he lunged a bit further than normal and gently hit my finger, I could feel his teeth felt like rough sandpaper, but he immediately fell back. Then last night I was doing a water change on my African cichlid tank and reached in to adjust where I wanted my siphon, boom I felt something tugging and my little finger. My venustus basically had the very tip of it in his mouth and started THRASHING!!!! (ok maybe that’s a lil dramatic, lightly thrashing 😛) Both times I of coarse got soaked with tail splashing and me splashing 🤣🤣🤣. only once have I actually been “hurt/ damaged” by a fish. 20-ish years ago my needle nose gar brushed against my arm and I received the tinyist of scratches. im sure there’s much more exciting experience out there but those are mine from the depths of my aquariums. 4 4 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
