Oscars do have teeth, but they are very fine. I have been bitten by one and it left a nice bruise, though not really painful. The oscar was about a foot long.
Forgot to add, I got bit by Frank's shark :eek:oh2: He had this display of a sharks jaw and I made the mistake of accidently brushing up against it with my finger and it cut me. Not a bad cut, but stunned me and the look on Frank's face! sue-sue-sue

I was cleaning my 200g with a siphon and I had my head looking somewhere else. Well actually I was talking to my mom. Then this goldfish bit (sucked) on my finger and I freaked out. I was like WTF was that. I pulled my hand out of the tank with my other hand wrapped around my finger. I was so freaked out I didn't want to look. But slowly I looked at realized it was just one of the feeders. I now pay more attention when cleaning.

That is true. Also, I have seen on another board where some people stated that p's under 4 inches cannot hurt you or bite through bone. Let me tell you this, at opefe, Frank showed me the bite on his finger where a piranha nearly removed a hefty chunk of flesh. This natt was only 2" long. So dont' buy into the bullshit that small p's can't hurt you.

luckily I have never been bit by any of my piranha :rasp:
if I let my guard down, u never know. Just ask Clay.

miscellaneous fish that I have been bitten by and actually drew blood was a large female oscar (mine 15") with eggs, 2' snowflake eel, and 4" Tomato Clownfish.
