I think my favourite has to be the Mandarin goby.... so pretty, but unfortunately so difficult to feed......

Hi All...Newbie here, just signed up tonight Mon. 10-05-2009 .

I'm pretty much just looking to chat in an actual forum without all the fuss...this one seemingly seems okay. I'm not here to promote anything at all, but rather to chat and give advice if anyone has any questions regarding anything aquatic...

In any event, back to the original subject question: This is a hard question by the way, since most marine fish are fascinating; however I would have to say my favorite would have to be the Lawnmower Blenny aka Sailfin/Algae Blenny (Salarias fasciatus), these little guys have such personality,... so unique that you will never grow tired of watching him/her.

Mine his name is "Bernie"... (by the way they are almost impossible to sex) -- (they will pair off to form a breeding pair eventually, if you have the opportunity to keep several)... loves to watch tv and loves to belly flop up on the floor of the aquarium with the koralia powerhead flowing water directly at him, almost as if he was getting some sort of therapeutic water message!

Keep in touch guys! I noticed a lot of the dates on here are extrememly super old!!!!!!!!!!! Where is everyone at?????? The aquarium hobby is growing now more than ever!

Take Care...We'll chat more soon via computerland.

I am a crazy about fishes. In my pond a have a lot of fishes like angelfish, goldfish. But my favorite fish is Mandarin. It just looks awesome, very different from another fish and so much colorful also.

My favorite is either Flame Angel or Emperor Angel. Seeing them in the wild is even better. Clown triggers too.

re: Royal Gramma in the wild is interesting. I saw them while diving in Belize. They were typically near 40-60 feet deep and their colors are even more purple because of sunlight filtering. I remember a group of rocks that formed a short channel about 5 feet wide, ten feet deep, and about 6 feet long. The grammas each had their hole in these rocks, and they would hang together in a group in the middle of the channel. There were about 200 of these fish together, each about two feet out from their hole. When I got within 5-6 feet of them they each backed into their holes. When I went back to about 10 feet away they would all come out again, and so we did this dance back and forth for a few minutes.

I had one living in my tank for more than 10 years but it died recently, so I'm on the lookout for another one.

Hello! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s
new to me. Anyways, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll
be book-marking and checking back often!
