We may spend an inordinate amount of time talking about the rarest fish in the hobby, but we’ve got nothing but love for the bread n butter fish that fill the tanks of hobbyists around the world. You gotta love hardy, colorful interesting fish which are common enough to be bought in groups so that newby aquarists can enjoy more natural behaviors and interactions of these beautiful fish.
In a way, we have a dichotomy of emotional feeling for the rare fish and the common ones. The rare fish give us something to look forward to, and they make us think about faraway location areas that we never hear about like the Dampier Archipelago or Clipperton Island. On the other hand, common fish are what reminds us of our roots in marine and reef aquarium keeping. Rock on firefish, grammas, gobies, damsels, clownfish and tangs.
