    Can't believe it

    I have a really agressive Clarke clown.

    5 Minutes ago while scraping the glass and tending to a few upside down snails
    my clown bites me (as per usual) but this time he pulls off a scab on my forearm from an oven burn earlier this week!
    couldn't believe it
    he couldn't eat it all so it took the rest to the anemone!
    then he came after me again! so i flicked him

    Score:

    Jeff 1
    Fish 1
    Anemone 1

    You don't understand what my Clown does to me! I get to the point where I try to not only flick it but swat it so it dosen't bite me. It always wins though and I haven't put my hand in my tank because of that damn clown.
    so....

    My Koi and my vlamingi tang are trained to bite anyone who is daring enough to try and hand feed them.

    A foot long Koi on your pinkie finger is an interesting sensation. The tang takes some bravery as he is now big/strong enough to break the skin if he wants.

    My hippo bites me all the time, no worries there, he's just dumb. he tries to take food out of the lions mouth too!

    The first and only time i was in the Toronto hospital the nurses were talking about a guy with a parana that was lock jawed to his finger.

    it was the news of the day

    i must admit, the piranha bite has always been a concern mine, especially with their current size...

    my new percs bite me every time i go in the tank though. go figure.
