Awww! That's cool my saltwater fish are so timid compared to my fresh. My cichlids will practically jump out of the water to try to get food out if my hand but my rabbitfish hides & puts his camo on every time I approach the tank :/ hope he will warm up to me soon

What tang is it? Very nice . My foxface hides when I put in nori so it's cool to see your fish being so brave.

He's a whitetale bristletooth....actually he is such a little piggy I could only really get him in the picture. Everyone of my livestock eat from my hand..they just get in line behind him....clown, cardinals, damsels, and anthias all eat their veggies Wish my son would take some lessons from the fish....lmbo

Nice!!! My yellow tang does the same thing when i feed seaweed but I'm scared coz I have a foxface and he comes close too so I'm scared to get stung by him lol so I just put it on the veggie clip.
