Do you have a fish that tends to act like he owns the place? Maybe they bully other fish a lot, or maybe they rest on the high parts of your tank claiming it as there's. I am wondering do you have any fish that act like the own the whole tank, and what fish is it? Curious to see everyone's input!

I have 2 that share that title. My Naso tang for the majority of the tank, and my Diamond Goby for the bottom half!! The goby even picks up snails that happen by if he doesn't like where they are headed. He just picks em up, and spits em out across the tank.

Wow, that sounds a little crazy . My tang owns the tank but he is very docile about it, if that makes sense.

Had a porcupine puffer as boss for awhile. Ate one too many clownfish so he went bye bye

Meet Annabelle, the most aggressive regal angelfish ever lol. Tank boss for sure. Second in command is Coco, my powder brown tang. He is leader of the tangs but is put in check by Annabelle! Them patrolling together below! And chip, my biota yellow tang. He is a big wanna be lol tries to challenge the other two and they quickly shoot that down immediately

A pair of large Maroon Clowns. The larger female was a menace to fish and corals. I traded them in to my LFS. For me, clowns never again.
