    Our last angel, also a dwarf - flame. We have had him about 4 years and he is easily twice the size of our Potters.

    This week's entrant is our sailfin tang. He is also our oldest fish - we've had him since 2009 (although he was hosted by Bud for nearly 2 years during that time). He is quite large at 9+" long. He is also the tank boss although he is not particularly aggressive.

    My Royal Gramma. It became kind of a project since I got it at a less than reputable store. Healthy and sassy now! We call it our rescue fish.

    Yellow Clown Goby. Sometimes one of the smallest inhabitants in the tank can be the most fun to watch.

    Our Pakistani butterfly....what's one more "reef safe with caution" fish when there is already about 7 in the tank already?

    Here is my current favorite, tons of personality. He follows me around the tank and stares at me like a puppy.

    Hawkfish are very cool fish. The way they move and perch on things. And you're right they are typically a fish with lots of personality that interacts with people and things outside the tank.

    One spot Foxface for this week's entrant. Just about out of fish to share from this tank.

    A one spot is on my list of fish that I would like to have. How is yours at eating algae?
