    You likely don't have to worry. There are fish Tb that can infect humans but the chances of your fish having it and you getting infecyed by it are in the millions.

    Ok. Than you have nothing toi worry about as long as you rinse your hans well. Nipping and attacking your hand is if anything a signal of health .

    my tiger oscar scared the crapper out of me this morning walked out and seen him lying on his side on top of the water lil turd was just sleeping or something cause when my missus got up later she said he is swimming around normal freaky i say. also after reading what i think it was fuller wrote about feeding them by hand i went home and had a go with a bit of cichlid block and to my surprise they came straight up and took it out of my fingers
