View Full Version : He got me !

One of my babies "ribbed" me yesterday when i was moving him to a temporary tank whilst cleaning his home out .... it didn't hurt but it itched like hell for hours afterwards , i've had the adults for years and the juveniles are usually very placid too ! i think i'll be using a net from now on though hehe.

thats awesome! mine never do that, tho i never hold them i suppose. but when im cleaning out their tank and ive got my hands in to move rocks to suck up the **** underneath, my female swims over to sit on my hand and try to eat my fingers.............way too tame to rib me!

love this species :D
