In my biocube the 2 clowns hate me, they bite and attack anytime my hand is in the tank.

newman - my dottyback in the pico tank, he doesn’t mind my presence In the mornings/early afternoon, but later in the day he just darts into the rocks as soon as he catches a glimpse of me, he can see me from over 10ft away. Hides during feeding until I’m gone.

the 40g tank with a bunch of fish, they don’t mind me. They love me when I bring food.

My clown and YWG love me when I walk by or when I feed them but all bets are off if my hands go in the aquarium..YWG flees for his life and my clown attacks me ferociously.

I am VERY popular with my fish. When I walk in the fish room it is ON! The Tangs start strutting, clownfish get jiggy, wrasses start flashing, dottybacks, basslets, cardinal fish, chromis, hawfish. They LOVE me, because I bring the mysis.

But those stuck up gobies and file fish. They lay low. I mean, what did I ever do to them?

They are so snobby. They don’t even come out and exchange greetings. They chill in the shadows, giving me that sketchy glance.

It’s not like that in the fish store. Their file fish and gobies are cordial.

I’m gonna keep working on those guys. We are going to come to terms sooner or later.
Lol I thought it was just me. Mine do the same thing. When anyone else walks up to the tank they all swim for cover. Smh.
