Thread: Ouch!

  1. Default Ouch!

    So yesterday I was doing some routine maintenance, removing some java moss from the filter intake, when one of my kribs swam up and bit me! It was weird, I've never been bit by a fish. It was probably more startling than painful, because it didn't really hurt all that much.. But wow.

    That WILL happen yeah.

    I get "Touched by an Oscar" on occasion [If he is grumpy] & he leaves marks that look like bruises from being pinched lol
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    I had an Oscar latch onto my finger before. I flung it across the room. lol.

    arowana bites are not fun. they usually draw blood pretty good, but it's more shocking than painful. happens when handfeeding sometimes. they just get excited and try to take a bit too much. they always immediately let go. just a quick strike.
    your friendly neighbourhood arowanaman!

    I quit cleaning the inside glass on my Texas cichlid tank when they are spawning or taking care of fry because I got tired of being bitten. As Jeffs99dime says, once a cichlid always a cichlid. Just wait till they spawn, that's when they get fierce.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    One of my tanks sit on the floor ( tank/pond sorta hybrid, I guess)... When I need to work on the filter, I need to put on shorts, and climb in. Aside from a few large fish that totally ignore me (A 10" red hook silver dollar, 2- 2' iridescent shark, and a 18" oxydoras niger) my school of assorted tiger barbs love to exfoliate my legs, lol. Kinda therapeutic!

    My German Blue Rams bit me all the time. Even the dwarves have some spunk.
    Roll the Dice!
