Do Fish Recognize you?

When you stick your face in front of your tank, do the fish recognize you? as opposed to strangers?

Fear not Grasshopper, just change the aquarium water often.

I would say so. I think it also depends on the fish species and personality. A few of my saltwater fish can tell the difference between me and my husband and our roommates.

Mine do not, in general pay attention to other people in the house who do not feed them, and me for sure I get as lot of attention when I walk up!!! Not all really care one way or another though.

So, YES!!!

New to FW fish? First tank in a long time or EVER??? Need some info on keeping fish?
