Hello, how do i train my bichirs (and SAL) to take food from my hand? Currently I feed mostly hikari massivore but they seem to feed only once the lights are out.

Try feeding them when you're standing there watching. Letting them establish the idea of you not wanting to hurt them. Then try moving closer and closer and eventually feed them from your hands. But personally I don't recommend it because they bite!!! Especially with a gar they ain't fun!!!
