I was gluing a new digi today and my lawnmower blenny decided to take a shot at me, he’s small and I have the hands of a lowland gorilla so not much of an event but got me thinking. In all the years how many times I’ve been bit in the tank. I had a maroon clown that truly enjoyed nipping me any time I stuck my hands in the tank but the worst was a shoal tang that was pure evil he once got me so good I was bleeding, though he did not bite, he slashed me That fish hated me so much anytime I went by the tank he did his best to attack me through the glass. Whenever I need to work on the tank my wife had to coral him with nets to keep me safe lol.

I've actually never been bitten. I've been stung by corals, and poked by vermetid nails, and of course who hasn't gotten some bristle worm bristles in their finger a time or two?

I had a clown fish that would bite... he later went carpet surfing. A while back I was doing maintenance on the tank and later I noticed a spot on my arm hurting, it progressed into what appeared like a second degree burn probably quarter inch x quarter inch.

Always the dang clownfish lol
Was about to post the same thing. I have two pairs that are absolute monsters.
I have a Pixy Hawkfish who tries to bite our fingers through the glass but as soon as I have a hand in the tank cleaning or working, he's hiding. LOL What a tough guy!

My female clown lives to bite me. I think biting me is what gives her purpose in life. Haha

This guy caught me pretty good. Was in the middle of feeding him and got distracted while still holding a shrimp in my hand and my hand in the tank. Since he was already in a feeding frenzy he didn't care if I was looking or not. Chomp Chomp!;Inpain:oops:;Facepalm
