I know everyone loves a blue tang or a harlequin tusk but what's your favorite overlooked fish and why?

My favorite overlooked fish of the month is the Sandhopper Blenny, also known as the Red Stripe Sand Perch.

Why?

The dude can really turn his head! How many fish can do that? It's like watching a dog walk on two legs.

He's also not overly aggressive, gets along with other bottom dwellers like my scooter dragonet, he ain't too expensive and he don't look half bad.

So, he's earned my fish of the month award.

Many say boring but I like the way my pajama cardinal just floats around. Its also pretty fast when it wants to be, lol.

He'd probably be faster and get more done if he just got out his pajamas!

He's kind of like the perfect fish of the year! Works at home and never get's out of his pj's!

Probably the most underappreciated fish. I liked the way mine was always visible and unfazed by anyone else. A completely laid back fish. Named him Francis Nelson Stein (Frank N. Stein) cause he looked like he was crudely sewn together from at least 3 different fish. :)

Super Cool! How do you think one would do with a YWG?

Freshwater mollies in salt water -
Well, it ain't a freshwater molly then, is it? I just put one in my frag tank just to see what she would do. Someone told me they would eat algae. Not so much. Gonna get me a tang.

Lawnmower blenny = discount dragon wrasse :)
I had a lawnmower blenny a while back and he was kind of nuts. Now maybe my memory ain't that good anymore but I remember him racing around the tank from rock to rock kind of in a mad dash.

Yellow Watchman Goby?
LoL, I should have been able to guess that. He's in my tank with a red scooter dragonet and a mandarin and they all seem to be fine. I would guess he would leave a ywg alone. My long nose hawk doesn't seem to like him though and will take stab at catching him when he has a chance.
