Fish have a slime coat that can be damaged... If you must touch them, then very gently and not too often..

I have been bitten or almost bitten every time I put my hands in the tank.. It's quite a funny feeling :D I say he's kissing me even though he's actually hoping I have food but I prefer the former.

@DQ, that's happened to me. They never can stay in the net >:[

I'm sure it's because of instinct? Like puppies miss their mothers when they go to new homes or miss their brothers and sisters. It's probably instinct or routine. I'd love to breed to see a father doing all the work ;-) JK..
