Hand Feeding Cichlids
I have a few old word cichlids and I need to know if I can hand feed them!
Hmm the only fish of mine that have ever "bit" me were my dwarf gouramis. Cichlids don't really have much in the way of teeth, so even if it got a good hold on your finger or something I don't think it would really hurt. Definitely not as bad as getting a nasty bite from something like a hamster.

LOL..Roughly 85-90% of my fish are handfed. Severums, silver dollars, loaches, tetras and barbs are all handfed.;)
Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to
I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Not pointy little things, I'm talking long and blunt. When they decide they want to bite the tip of your finger...well, imagine popping a grape with a small Lego. They'll sink those blunt little teeth to the bone. No fun at all. I'll take my chances with the cichlids.
