Fish are natural paranoid, Some more some less. Some of these fish prefer to stay hidden all the time. If you are expecting a pure natural tank like real life natural habitat of fish then you might not want them to come running to you. But most of us like the idea of fish recognize us.
In general if you want to tame your fish then all you have to do is spend more time in front of them. They would get used to your presence. It’s a really good habit because it relaxes your mind and give you a chance to understand each fish in your tank. You will able to find out who is the Alpha and also who are the bullies. Also this will hope to figure who are the weaklings. Some fish might need more attention because they don’t get their share of food. So spend few minutes front of your tank everyday.

How to tame your Discus Fish
You have to be careful about these guys. They tend of follow what others do and can get really paranoid at times. You always must keep at least 6-7 Discus fish together in tank, if it’s a Discus only tank. Spending time with them is the best way to tame Discus fish. Also if you leave too many hiding places they will stay hiding most of the time. When I had Discus fish I kept them in bare bottom tanks with no decorative items or plants.
Taming Clown Loach
Clown Loaches are one of the funniest and interesting freshwater creatures you can have. They are comical but smart and very curious about tank and other fish. But they tend to stay hiding inside drift wood or under stones. One interesting thing is if you have a school of Tiger barbs then your Clown Loach start follow thinking he/she is one of them.
Taming your fish is not something really hard most of the times. Even Betta fish. I don’t think you can tame Livebearers though. Still they won’t mind taking food from your hand when they are hungry enough. Most fish are always hungry. 🙂
