I'll start this off with the weirdest fish I've ever hand fed: My paradise gourami, Brian.

It's not too weird that he would eat out of my hand, but later on in the hobby I'll find a weirder fish. Anyone ever hand fed a pleco before?

I used to have to 'almost' hand feed my super red calico pleco.
I would have him in a shallow tub and have to put his pellets almost under him to get him to eat.
Now he steals them from the other fish.

I would say the weirdest are my gobies, especially my dragon goby.

It wouldn't eat for a while so I used to have to dangle worms in front of it's face.

A ray. But I have also hand fed my pleco, he would flip upside down and I would give him some food

Synodontis lace he would come to the surface and eat flake food from my fingers.

When i was in Florida and North Carolina we tried to hand feed the dolphins! Tried it once with a shark we caught, too. Haven't hand fed any of my aquarium fish to date...

The only fish I have fed by hand are not really strange just a betta and killifish. The killifish are really fun to hand feed because you can hold the food above the tank ans they will jump and grab the food out of your hand.
