I will say my Power Blue and Power Brown are the like olympics swimmers. So much fun to watch them in the 200 gal

Wrasses. Specially those that like to sleep in the sand. There are times where they get startled, dart across the tank, bury themselves in the sand and peak their head out to make the coast is clear.

I also just really enjoy how they spend all day swimming around inspecting every inch of every surface. Unlike my tangs who could really care less about that algae growing on the rocks.

I am not sure what the question is. I think I need to finish my coffee.

Anthias and wrasse. Great swimmers and look good while running for it!
I think all adult reef fish know how to get through the currents.

I'll be back!
I picked anthias and wrasses too.

not even sure why clowns were an option... lol.

Tangs! Naso cruises the tank acting as if he is the king, causes little trouble, keeps everyone in line. Powder Brown is my favorite because he is busy, busy, minds his own business and is gorgeous. But maybe Tomini is my favorite because he swims around so elegantly and stays out of trouble unless Purple is being a butt that day.

My midas blenny is my biggest swimmer. She's always out showing off, wiggling away. If it wasn't for her, you wouldn't know I had any fish sometimes!
I also love my Midas blenny. He will perch a little but he is always out and about wiggling all over the tank.
