Somewhere in space... Wyoming for mail.
Quite a while back I mentioned that my Panda Garras had no fear of me and would attach to my hand when my hand was in the water. Well I finally had my camera ready and got a shot. Following is a shot of a Panda Garra nibbling food off my hand. The food was freeze dried Tubifex worms that I rubbed on my fingers.

These things are a total trip and have no concept of fear. Shoot, they will actually chase my cichlids away from protein pellets. I just love the little beasties!

My cichlids also love Tubifex worms but the Pandas won't let them at the stuff when I press the worms against the glass. Still it works out as the Pandas will swarm on the worms stuck to the glass and the cichlids just eat what the pandas break loose and is floating in the water.

Anyway, the photo... BTW, when they get on my fingers their little raspy mouths sort of tickle a bit. :)
