I'm sorry, this is really immature, but YASS! (Is that what's said?) this is something I would do.

I get some weird looks from moms at aquariums when I tell their kids: "No no no, it's not Nemo, it's Ampiphrion ocellaris, otherwise known as the Ocellaris Clownfish. This species is easily confused with another species, Ampiphrion percula. The best way to know which is which it to look at the first dorsal fin. The number of dorsal rays of the Percula Clownfish will be 11, where there are only 10 on an Ocellaris Clownfish..."

You might be an aquarium nerd if...

I call them Nemos. . I also call the blue tang a Dory fish lol.

If we ever do salt water, I want some clowns a blue tang a blenny and also a flame angel(hubby's favorite salt water fish). I also like Benggai Cardinalfish. Not sure if they're all compatible. Obviously we'd do research first

I (loosely) know what they actually are, though . They're clown fish. I just like to be silly lol.

You might be an aquarium nerd if you are the "go-to" guy on Instagram for all those betta owners fish problems.

When a lot of your Facebook status updates are about your fish and/or shrimp some days.

When you write about your pandas and shrimp fighting over a piece of wafer on Facebook.
