Favorite Fish to Watch! Pics?

I wanted to start a thread discussing our favorite fish to watch and why.

Personally, my favorite fish to watch is not a fish. It is my Amano Shrimp! They always seem to be rummaging through the sand and crawl over everything!

My African Brown Knife! The one long fin they have is so neat to watch, it's such a cool fish. They always look unhappy because of the shape of their mouths, though. :P

Easy to care for, IME, except feeding. He eats a whole carnivorous diet, won't take flakes or pellets. He's shy, but they get really close to you, letting you touch them eventually, hand-feed (trying to get him that way with me now), the only thing is that they get 8-12 inches, and need a pretty large tank. This cutie is about an inch long, so he's still a baby. Getting him a 125 gallon later this year. (:

I looove watching my African brown knife... It is such a sneaky fish. As soon as I turn the moonlight LEDs on, he sticks his head out of his house, looks both ways, and wades through the kelp. EVERY SINGLE TIME. such a neat fish

I love watching my green spotted puffers hover around their tank, exploring everything. Also, they know when I am about to feed them and they will stalk me while they wait for their food to defrost.

not a fish either, but my blue prawn is fun to watch he/she is such a creeper, constantly cruising the bottom searching around or hanging upside down from the driftwood waiting for unsuspecting fish to swim by(at least that's what I think is going on)

my dominat male jewel. he is hilarious when he is protecting eggs/fry. he flares at every fish he sees,and watches the whole tank,so he is constantly doing it. youd think he'd get tired...

i dont have any recent pics(and by recent i mean from this year), and he is always behind the java moss taking care of his fry(between the 2 females,its a bigger surprise when there's not any fry)

My favourite to watch has to be my elephant nose, love how he patrols the tank & anything that gets in his way gets shoved out the way. Feeding time is great too, love hand feeding him except when he nips!

Got to say... Male Green Severums are my favourite community cichlid to watch, however, an Oscar is the most amazing freshwater aquatic species you can possibly own and the most personable!

Either my batfish or lobster. The bat is always swimming and the lobster running along the bottom....... Although he is a satanic cereal killer and has killed 3 fish...... I still like him. Lol
