My Alpha female thinks she's a piranha...

For realz. She will chase my finger at full speed around the tank & bite my hand every chance she gets!Then the other girls mimic her, and I feel multiple nibbles during water changes. I'm so tasty.
Anyone else's do this?

YaY for the Adoption Option
I've found 5 loving homes for 5 of my finned fellas, thanks
to this forum!

My boy does it, he's a verocious eater too. But hey, their teeth feels like a cat tongue so I'm not worried about myself :P


The Pali word metta is a multi-significant term meaning loving-kindness, friendliness, goodwill, benevolence, fellowship, amity, concord, inoffensiveness and non-violence. The Pali commentators define metta as the strong wish for the welfare and happiness of others (parahita-parasukha-kamana).

For some reason I love it when a betta bites me, it's oddly comforting.
