    Default Hand feeding.

    Yess!!! I finally hand fed my Black Ghost Knife Fish 3 days in a row
    Thought the first 2 times hand feeding them was a fluke? But now I am pretty sure they know how to eat frozen bloodworms from my fingers now. They usually just wait for the bloodworms to sink down in the bottom of the tank but now they don't It feels so cool haha.

    Nicklfire: Yeah it really is a pretty cool feeling.

    onefishtwofish: That's awesome. I haven't tried hand feeding my yellow labs and yellow tail Acie's yet. But when I open the lid they all come up to eat. So I don't think it will be hard for me to hand feed my cichlids also ^^

    eternity302: Haha at first I was scared of them biting my fingers. But they didn't bite me

    Now when I put my hand even without blood worms, they both come to my and let me pet them it seems like? haha. But I know i can't do it all them time so I don't remove their slime coat?

    Back in the 80s, I used to hold smelts and squids to handfeed to my 13" Volitan lionfish (very dangerous), Smooth horn shark, Snowflake moray eel, and other fish. It was very cool, but it also helped train my lionfish to swim towards my hand expecting food and that's how I got stung/poisoned. So, yeah, very cool experience, but watch out.

    When I worked out in Powell River on a fish farm, I would drop the corner of the net, grab two big handfuls of fish pellets and jump in with 40,000 young salmon smolts. I would release one handful, then the other and be surrounded by schools of thousands of hungry fish. Using my mask and snorkel, this was the most fun I ever had hand-feeding fish
