BLENNY

I love blennies. They have a great personality. They love to watch whats going on outisde of the tank. Fun to watch them find interesting holes they swim in and out of.

I'd have to agree... my lawnmower blenny and my pyscho goby are without a doubt my favorite fish....

Naso tang. So much personality and a joy to watch swim around. Like a golden retriever, she always looks happy.

I'm gonna say the blenny too. Had a canary before a velvet outbreak. Love the way it swims out front. And the way it swims. SOrt of frezing motion and turning its head to check everything out in the tank. Had a bi0color too. Fun to watch him perch on the rocks for the view and leap off for food. Now I have the midas blenny. Larger and pick out a rock to hang out on. Backs into the holes and watches everything. The first to greet me when I approach the tank.

Snowflake Moray...

I would say the Green Spotted Puffer.. He comes to the side of the tank like a dog, wagging his tail.. He will then lead me to the top of the tank, and you can see the begging look in his eyes... "Please open the top and drop in a small goldfish, or a tasty morsel of shrimp, or maybe even a silverside".

But then again, I'm not a dog person.

So, yeah.. My Eel is my favorite. Sitting across the room, watching him swim from top to bottom, all across the tank.. Simplistic beauty at it's finest.
