Um... Why didn't anyone tell me mbuna bite?! I nearly got my arm gnawed off today when I reached into the tank to remove a slice of zucchini that I gave them as a treat.
It was all of them: Maingano, Yellow Labs, and Acei. At first I thought I was getting shocked; it felt like a whole bunch of little sparks hitting my arm. I thought, "oh no, my heater is shorted out and electrifying the water!" But then I saw it with my own eyes.... mbuna attack!DJRansome said:IME only the maingano have nipped at me. It is startling but no blood is drawn. Good to hear you survived.
My mbuna are ravenous little monsters. They bite my arms and fingers. They bite the siphon when I'm vacuuming the sand. They bite the little API test tubes when I dunk them in the water to fill them. Cracks me up!Haplochromine guy said:After reading this, I don't want to get rid of my Africans just yet. LoL. Nope, not happening, but now I'm all nervous about water changes when they're adults.
