    I always wanted my fish to eat from my hands especially the discus, I had never really tried other when I just had the guppies and they almost jump into my hand every time I'm anywhere near the tank lol so wheres the challenge in that? so I decided to go for it with the discus today I got some frozen brine shrimp between my fingers and slowly entered my hand into the tank, my discus slowly came up beside my hand and started to pick away at it! I was thrilled! I am the only one who the discus doesn't hide from when they walk up to the tank, when ever I come in he always come up the the glass it's really cool, anyway I just wanted to share in my happy moment! videos to come :)

    Nice work Alan! He's trusting you more and recognizing you as the "food god". ;)

    Careful what you wish for though! I get splashed at feeding time and I know some larger cichlid keepers get soaked!

    I may learn yo hate it when I get the rest of the discus in my new tank and they are all fully grown but for the foreseeable future I am in fish feeding heaven! Being food god is cool, I just wish my fish would see me as a person you know? So we could hang out and things wouldn't be awkward LoL
