Tip to everyone: never crush snails with your fingers, on the subject of wounds. If you get snail-shell stuck in your fingers, you can get really sick. Some, like ramshorns, carry really nasty viruses.
ewy
why were you crushing snail shells?

Since the pellets I feed my boy are so small, I press one at a time onto my finger so they stick and dip the tip into the tank.

Of course he quickly snaps at them. But it tickles more than hurts, really.

I don't even intentionally hand-feed my girls, but they jump up to grab the pellets anyway sometimes -- I've never had a bite break the skin or hurt or seem like much of anything at all, really. Your fish must be really strong!
