Talking Jasper bit me. hehe

I've been having heater and thermometer issues so this morning I stuck my fingertip in the water to feel the temp, and Jasper swam straight up to my finger and stared at it, and then I wiggled it around and she attacked it! hahaha It was so cute. I don't think she actually bit it because the size of her mouth compared to my fingertip probably made that impossible. But the point is that she tried to! hehe. She's a feisty little thing. When I stick my finger in Fishie's or Shiny's tank, they either stare at it for a second and swim away, or stare at it while swimming backwards very slowly. haha.

My Sammy does the same thing with my finger, he just looks at starts backing away..he was always used to jumping for food, which I think is the reason why..ready to jump, but then he sees the pellet drop..but when it's not feeding time, and I put my finger in, he waits, backs a way, no pellet dropping, waits again, and lunges for the finger, figuring, if there is no pellet, he will let me know he is tyring to i wiggle my finger in the water, and I point to the Floaing log, and put my finger over the top of the log, and he swims right in..:)

Mine's scared of my hands because of when I had to pick her up when she jumped out of her tank. When I dropped her back in her tank, she sunk to the bottom and I had to grab her out again. Now when ever she sees my hands she hides, unless she sees that I have food.
