Dottybacks are extremely fun to watch. The way the move in and out of rocks, they are extremely smart as well. Great fish to own.

I like to own fish with character. I hate stupid fish. That is why cichlids always have a place in my house.

Yes! Well… sort of. My clownfish are really entertaining, just because of their spunk and personality.

My sunrise dottyback is fun to watch, but he rarely comes out.

And my orange spot diamond goby is super boring. He just sits in the same spot all day long. ;Hilarious

I love my rainfordi goby! He's got a lot of spunk and the sand sifting behavior is so much fun to watch. As well as it helps that he eats my algae too.

But my favorite is my recent acquisition A dwarf seahorse! He cruises between blades of seagrass and is always inquisitive about something. his curiosity reminds me of a baby, just so enthralled with everything around him. It also help that they are really expressive fish too.

I love my fish. I'll take personality over looks any day. If I could have a 100% reef safe puffer, it would be my first fish!

My copper band butterfly is a laugh. But, she's probably a meany pants.
I watch my cbb dive bomb my foxface daily. Fox is 2x the length, hasn't gotten hurt yet. Clowns, they're clowns.

The way fish behave around each other can be amazing.

Other: I have no fish at the moment (I plan to, shortly, for my macro tank).

1. I could watch the Anchovies at the Aquarium of the Bay (San Francisco) for days! I love the massive, yet fantastically coordinated schools that they form!

2. N/A, though I was always fascinated by the fish in my past freshwater systems.

My female clown is a lot of fun to watch. Even if she tries to kill my every time I put a hand in the tank…

I have same problem with my female. For the last few yrs I haven't put my hand too far into the water without the long coralife gloves on.

Curious, what kind of damage will she do? Mine snapped at my about 6 times in 3 sec, scared me and I yanked my hand out. Will she actually cause damage?
