A titan triggerfish or its equivalent in the reef tank of the six line wrasse
Those are definitely reef tank terrorists lol, but are there any fish that give you that "uncanny valley" sort of vibe? Only the blob fish gets me, I think it's the oddly human features.... It's unsettling, but I can't stop looking at it.

I bought a formosa wrasse, I thought he looked cool. I had no idea it would flip all of the high end corals on my sand bed, even the ones on 3" discs. He is in my sump ready to fly. On the bright side he did an awesome job keeping the sand bed stirred and clean.

You'll have that, but I'm talking heebeegeebees kinda unsettling. Does anything in the ocean freak you out on a deep subconscious level?

Sorry to upset the Clown fish lovers but I hate Clown fish, I just cannot abide them, I cannot see a point to them, they don't even swim about, just stay in one spot 24/7, a friend of mine had a pair in a 7ft tank, they only saw about a foot of it.
Just pointless

Eels. They give me the heebie jeebies.

Also its not a fish but, longspine urchans. LFS put one in their cheap frag tank and I refuse to look at it since.
Aichmophobia (/ˌeɪkməˈfoʊbiə/) is a kind of specific phobia, the morbid fear of sharp things, such as pencils, needles, knives, a pointing finger, or even the sharp end of an umbrella and different sorts of protruding corners or sharp edges in furnitures and building constructions/materials

Its more of a “freak me out” than a phobia similar to my dislike of these seed pods.

Do you think a xenia refugium is an effective method of water filtration?
