Have any of you ever been bit by any large cichlids while vacuuming out your tank? My tiger barbs are nipping at my hand and arm(which I can hardly feel). My male pink convict does too(he is only about 2-3 inches). Wondering if when my cichlids get large if it will hurt or if they can draw blood?

Yes they can bite but with cichlids it is more of a pinch.
Some tetras can draw blood.
