I have owned 2 Green Terrors for nearly a year now and like the gallery and many other sources said, green terrors are very very owner responsive fish. Sadly, mine was very shy and hides when I goes near the tank, but if I stop to look at him, he would come out. and unless his really hungry, he would only eat when I stand away from the tank about 1 meter.
I know fishes (like humans) have different personalitys even for same species.

might be dumb to ask....But I was just wondering if there IS any possible way to get rid that shy habbit of his??

regards

when you feed them do you put your hands into the tank at all? I know some people say to put your hands in as little as possible, but when your feeding them if u put ure hand in, they shud start to link food with you, and should be happier to come out of hiding and wait for you, if they think they are gna get treats.
