I got Bit!

I don't know if I was feeding too slowly or maybe my fingers just smelled like tubifex but one of my clown loaches bit me yesterday! :D

Didn't really hurt 'cause they don't really have teeth but he definetly indented my skin just a little bit... that'll teach me to be late for breakfast :D.

Anyway I was just wondering if anyone had this happen with older loaches. I'm not going to freak out & stop putting my fingers in the tank but it's good to know if there is a chance of getting bit. That way I can just be a little extra careful like with my oscars.

Or maybe this is just a wierd case - the same one went for my finger again last night but I moved it as soon as he touched me :D

Crazy loaches...
