    i would have to go with my pixy hawkfish... it will always come to the glass to look at me..if i get up and sit at the other side of tank it follows me...if i put my finger on the glass he swims a bit away but comes back as if he is playing/taunting... really impressed with its character and intelligence..

    My comet comes out of it's hole when it sees me. Any strangers around then it keeps hiding.

    very clever ... i truly believe that they can recognise people..or by their sizes ..shapes..silhouettes etc .....when i had my shop i had a giant gourami around 40cm that would only come to the glass for food if it was me..

    my Dragonet knows when its feeding time and as soon as i start feeding the clowns goes and waits in the same corner of the tank where i always put its food. i know its not the most amazing thing ever but it impresses me how the fish knows that straight after the clown fish its his turn and it should eat where the hermit cannot get to the food and bully it
