My jawfish is so funny. He's my little dude for sure. I babied him when I first got him because my tangs being tang kept steeling the food I intended for him. Finally, and as if he knew what I was trying to do, I brought the turkey baster down lower to squirt him some food, and before I knew it, he swam right up to the tip and started biting it ;Happy. He comes out with no problem now, but I just have a soft spot for that little cutie.

I had one fish and it is all I need, thing would hide and scoot around the tank then when it would see me it will burst out of hiding to beg for food. Getting another one as soon as possible, the Rhino blenny is the best.

My favorite fish to watch is my diamond goby. He is quite funny making his mountains and valleys in the tank and blowing mounds of sand everywhere. The cutest thing is his bedtime... he goes under his little cave and blows sand to close the opening... nite, nite! Then he burst out the next morning. :)

Fish are super entertaining to watch. Many of them, such as large marine angels, puffers, and triggers, have real personalities. You can actually see them solve problems and figure things out.

My Porcupine Puffer is a blast to watch. I'll hide salad shrimp underneath rocks and he'll literally blow a jet of water to dislodge them, before gobbling them up.

I loved my toby puffer and my wrasses in the past for personalities they had. Currently thought my fish are all rather entertaining. The male swallowtail will chase as he deems needed, the yellow tangs will bicker like siblings, the different damsels will suddenly chase one other and then hide again. The wrasse is always on the hunt and the dottyback is peeking in and out. My Kole just hangs out doing his thing.
In my other tanks, the mandarins are fun to watch hunt and the gobies are just cool to see floating so still all over 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?
Yes, she will. I've had the world's meanest Tomato Clown for about 12 years, and she's literally drawn blood before (mine, unfortunately). She's a savage beast who attacks my hand anytime it's in the tank. Why I keep her around is a mystery to me...

Most entertaining fish? Not a fish but a Mollusk! My 2 Octopuses! But if you are pressing me for a Fish Fish it would be (p)Rick my Porcupine Puffer, spits for attention and his aim has become legendary! And then it's the Eels with Seymour my biggest Tessellata Moray who is my baby (all 4 1/2 ft) then Zon the Zebra (5ft) with all of the Eels (54) having my affection! Ne-eel the Mexican Dragon is a case unto himself with his attempts to wiggle with head above water during hand feeding!

So overall I prefer interacting with my waterborne buddies as a means of recreation :)

I consider all of my fish to be entertaining. My clowns, the two pictured, are the friendliest, always swimming as close to me as they can when I approach and eating out of my hand. My yellow tang always tries to put on a nonchalant air but is very inquisiive.

most entertaining is my possum wrasse, has the craziest swim patterns. Followed in a close second by my foxface
One of the wrasse I would love to own again however, I already have a cryptic in my nano which is just as entertaining as my old tanaka’s Pygmy possum (Before my urchin decided to have an expensive meal)

My clown bites me all the time...sometimes love "hurts"..but if it really "hurts" maybe you have some dainty asz hands..lol..#daintyhands&clownfish..haha. it's more surprising than hurtful. Love my mellenarus wrasse...only fish that survived..ie 2 anthias and 1 grammar. Too active to let covid take it out..not overweight, no diabetes, no pre existing heart condition...part of the 94% survival rate. He/she just swims lime a champ all day long! Hope I get canceled for this review...lol

I like my Coral Beauty. He darts in and out of all my rocks and slips through every opening. He also loves to play with the feather dusters, touching them to make them draw inside.
