Hey all! I wanna see what everyone's favorite fish in their tank is. Either post what you have or post a pic with it if you can. Mine right now (and for the last 2 years) is my snowflake eel. It's about 2.5 feet long now and still swimmin! It's also the only snake like creature my girlfriend can stand to be around.

Picked my Molly Miller Blenny about a year ago from Reef Oasis. He is such a ham and always bombing photos. We call him Spaz and enjoy his antics all the time.

I was just thinking about this yesterday. Great minds think alike. Smile

I like all fish. Nemos and all Clownfish have a special attraction and I have them all the time. Recently the baby Nemos that went into an RBTA have helped my wife tolerate my hobby in the form of a 5 gal nano on the coffee table. See the thread with the video: 
http://utahreefs.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=81472&title=update-showing-off-baby-clowns-in-anemone

Actually Clownfish are my second choice. Embarrassed My all time favorite was 10 years ago, coincidentally not long after the release of Finding Nemo. It was the suspended reef with "Ms. Ray" and "Mr Bat" (I know, there wasn't a Batfish in the movie and the school teacher was male Confused).







Aloha,
Mark  Hug

My red coris is probably the prettiest fish I own. He's like 5 years old or so.
Dang, no photo on my phone.

Borbonius Anthias was my favorite fish I ever owned. Beautiful and a fun personality.
Indefinite hiatus from sw aquariums.

Once I have my glorious return I'll set back up the following.
50 Gallon rimless cube.
180 Gallons mixed reef paradise

My Gold Flake is my favorite.  He was the size of quarter, now he's about 3 inches. HOWEVER, I do love Banggai, I personally think they are one of the most under rated fished in the hobby.
