    Poll: Most Popular Marine Fish in the Hobby.

    We are always looking at members tanks that are displayed here on RF (and in some cases on other forums), but you can't help but to notice that there are a IMO, two fish that seem to be in almost every person's tank! It doesn't matter what size the tank is...One of these fish seems to be present. To test my theory on this, I decided to put up a poll on the two fish in particular I feel are the two most commonly purchased/acquired fish in the hobby. If you would like to discuss the subject, please feel free to do so here. I will set up the poll to allow multiple votes seeing we are dealing with two different fish. Interested to see how this thing goes.

    LOL!! Well, you did have one of the two! Everyone has to have atleast one of these two. I had both. A yellow tang and 2 clown fish. Those yellow tangs are nice grazers and play nice. Not too badly priced either and they add color to your tank. I had both of them brought in by a friend. We aren't allowed to import marine life here, but a buddy of mine surprised me with getting them for me. Loved those fish.

    Here's my yellow tang and my clowns I had.

    Ha!


    So it seems my "theory" is kinda true! Out of 21 selections, 18 have either a clown or a yellow tang. Only 3 do not have either so far.

    Clowns will always win out since they are also nano friendly. Only reason i want a bigger tank is for a tang, not a yellow one though they are too common.

    I do have a yellow tang, but I think the clownfish and the blue hippo tang might be the most common. I have 9 clownfish.

    If they're not in the display tank do they still count?

    We have a pair of clowns but they're in my QT/grow out tank. We didn't want to toss the babies we got at SeaMax into the 90 gallon.
