HAha. I hear Lil Sano jump out of the water when he eats, but that is about it. It does tickle when he bits, but don't tell him I said that. We like to play tag. I will put my finger in the water and chase him for a bit, then pet him, and then he chases me and nibbles. lol

I found that females (or mine anyway) tend to be pretty nippy...especially the big ones...I had one that would jump and nip if she felt she wasn't being fed fast enough. :P they're so cute.

That's too cute! My little Gastly's too timid for that much excitement. He could barely handle the 5 gallon tank he was in originally which I've decided to sell and just go with 2.5 tanks. More room for more fishies! ^o^/

My roomie Jen has her two, Goblin & Golem, the former of whom tends to flare at just about anything, let alone a finger in the water. I'ts pretty funny really. You walk in the room, he flairs. You sit in the chair next to his tank, he flares. You point at him, he flares. Try and direct him to food, he'll spend the whole time flaring while letting pellets pass him by. He's not called a "Flare Monkey" fo nothin'! :D

Mine is afraid of my fingers, because she's worried I'm going to grab her like I did when she jumped out her tank. After I dropped her back in, she sank, so I grabbed her back out to rinse her off some more, now whenever she sees my fingers, she hides, unless she sees the food bottle, then she waits at the top at a "safe" distance from my fingers.
