It's amazing how quickly they learn to do that. My platy fry learned to rush towards the near side of their tank whenever they saw me within maybe two weeks of being born.

The only things that happen quickly in an aquarium are bad things.

My fish don't understand english. I beg them not to pull the hairs from my arms during maint but to no avail. I am reminded of a pond that we used to swim in as young boys. The perch were merciless in attacking the hairs on our arms and legs along with anything else that they thought might be edible and was exposed.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

That's hilarious.

Did you ever consider those massive gloves they sell at the supply stores that go all he way up your arms? IMO I need to feel what I'm doing so wouldn't bother but I don't get my arm hair attacked.

Too funny :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

, I hear ya there. My Angel used to find my arm most appealing during WCs. I've actually, believe it or not, trained him to not peck at me unless I have food in my fingers and even then hes carful to only take the food. Dunno how I did it, but he doesn't bother my arm anymore...
Other fish are scared to death of the gravel vac, no clue who but they all hide when I stick it in. Goodness knows how many times they've seen that thing....

My fish seem to be just the opposite...they are way too curious about the vac...especially the babies in my gf's tank...good thing it has a shutoff switch or there would have been casualties many times.
