When Junior was younger he would jump and bite my finger if I held it just above the surface. It was so funny. I actually decided to get him from Petsmart when I stuck the tip of my finger into his cup and he went to nip it! (Love at first bite )

Playing with him sounds awesome! Maybe if he gets used to my finger in the tank he'll start chasing it... but for now he just flares and tries to "scare" my finger away. Too cute :)

Buddha doesn't get much personal interaction unless I'm feeding him, so whenever I put my finger near the tank, he thinks it's for food. So playing tag is fun.

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

Not teeth like we have, or sharks. Bony ridges is one way to describe it. Looks like this:

Mr. Fishie goes at me all the time when I'm cleaning the tank. All I can think of is the little girl in Finding Nemo... "I'm a pih-wah-na!" He's so unthreatening, haha...
