What is the coolest fish in your reef tank?

What is the fish that non-reef people see when they look at your tank and say WOW THAT IS SO COOL! I think as someone in the hobby I tend to see fish I know are rare and expensive and say wow. However people that donít know the value of the fish tend to choose a fish solely on what they find the most interesting. So share what fish wows people the most when looking at your tank.

I will start, people just love my Saddle Valentini Puffer (Canthigaster valentini). He is a very cool fish with lots of personality. I am missing a few hermits but so far he is worth it. Your turn

Everyone who comes over (reefers and non-reefers) all ooh and ahh over my ruby head fairy wrasse (c. cyanopleura). Not expensive at all.

People always talk about my supermale Rhomboid fairy wrasse plus the exclamations of "Dori!" from the younger ones on my 2 Regal Tangs.

Got this little one on 1/21/06 from liveaquaria. Still going strong - eats like a pig with my large angels and tangs.

Yeah, I doubt that anyone could pass on commenting on a Moorish Idol. I think they are the epitome of fish that inspire saltwater tanks. Too bad about their survivability.

The fish that non-reefers always seem to notice in my tank are my flame angel, purple tang, and the male lyretail anthia. The flame angel seems to get the most commentary though. His bright orange and lots of movement seem to make him really stand out.
My black occelaris also seems to get a lot of commentary from non-reefers. Mostly along the lines of "What's wrong with you clownfish? I thought they were supposed to be orange...." I have one friend who likes to play "Finding Negro" when he comes over.

Mated pair of true percula clownfish. You gotta love the way the swim, stay together, come to you during feeding, are peaceful and it's easier to explain reefing when you can tell people that your reeftank has 'nemos' in it.

Everybody always love Corkey. Mainly because he follows your hand around the glass.

do you happen to have a picture of your orange shoulder? I want to add one to my reef and i hear they are pretty calm and nice and hardy

anyways mine would probably be my midas blenny (kamikaze, named by my girlfriend because he is pretty crazy) or my bluethroat trigger pair that never leave eachothers side and seem to play hide and seek with eachother

My two angels, a flagfin and a blueface get the most comments from folks who see my tanks. They also seem to really like the true perc pair in my anemone.
