    This Hippo Tang scared the heck out of me. He was flying around the tank really fast with a shell on his face. I thought a hermit was attacking him, but it was just him playing. He picks up a shell or a piece of LR and swims as fast as he can, then drops it. :lol:

    Fish have such personality. I don't think non-fishpeople understand that.

    I do want to catch him on video, but I've only seen him do it 3 times in 2 weeks.
