Must have fish?

So I was curious, what are some fish that you guys think every saltwater aquarist should try at least once?

Eels. They are just so unique. I say the same with loaches in freshwater. They are like no other fish. They all have their own personality.

If they have a cave to feel safe in and their tank mates aren't to rowdy they will come out during the day.
I have 3.
2 in my 75 and 1 in the 120.
I originally thought I may have got a pair,although from different LFS they both showed up the same week and were different sizes.
They have been together over 2 years ,but both stay in separate caves.
Neither chases the other and I couldn't tell if they spawned in the cave or not.
They can be more shy then nocturnal IMO, but I know they are active also at night as all my tanks have moon lights.
They are great fish,and possibly an occasional shrimp eater?

I have to agree, the marine beta is one of the greatest fish in my tank. It comes out when the lights are on, but is very active at night. It shoots out from between rocks and puffs itself up to try to intimidate me whenever I come near the tank.

I have to say- engineer goby. Coolest thing ever that is reef safe. It's like an eel in the reef, without the predation! And the best part....they are dirt cheap as far as salt fish go.

Gramma loretto;
Royal gramma.
If they fit every tank should have 1!
