My crayfish /barb tank is good for this too. I like to feed the male crayfish by hand so everytime I have my arm in there the fish bite me in a frenzy( and they're big enough that it actually hurts a bit)! However I put gloves on to feed the female crayfish lol and the barbs don't nip the gloves at all... Don't you love having a tank that just wants to eat you haha
I've had rams attack my arm.. I hate when any fish nips me, it startles me and I usually yankmy arm in some random direction, which I'm worried I'll break something some day.
And I've been out on a river float and got 'attacked' by a large school of minnows or something. It didn't hurt, but it was a very weird sensation. Especially when I didn't see the fish at first so I had no idea what was going on.
After further testing i figure out what my little henchman were picking on.Dried up skin on my arms,callus in the palms of my hand and also my cuticle(two of them ripped a couple cuticles off and hurt like a bastard.
