Life in our saltwater tank – always entertaining!

I have written about our fish tank on several occasions. Here are some photos to share about the life in our saltwater tank. We have 12 tropical fish and a hermit crab named, Sebas Jr. It is always entertaining to watch them in action.

The photos below are of blue damsels, Trigger (white and yellow), Wrasse (green), Clown fish (orange and white), and Damsel (black and white). They are constantly in motion until it is time to go to bed. At night after dinner my husband shuts their light off. They see him coming and know what he is going to do. They race to their perspective sleeping areas to claim their spots. I guess we have them trained like little kids that it is time to go to bed.

The photos above are of Sebas Jr. snacking on his nightly clam. He manages to open them without any help from the fish who watch over him waiting for a tidbit left over. Once he finishes the clam he moseys around the tank and eats whatever he can dig up from the bottom. He is nocturnal so he is busy at night and sleeps all day. He did not like me putting on a light to snap these photos. He was quite annoyed and turned away from me to protect his shell. He must have thought I was trying to steal his treat! Ha, ha!

In the photo above there is a cave. Sebas Jr. can be seen outside the cave sleeping in his shell while the other inhabitants swim around dodging each other.

It is quite fascinating to stand there and watch them. Sometimes they don’t like me to get too close. It is their territory that I am invading. One of the photos above with the clown fish (orange and white) you can see him looking back directly at the glass where I am standing. He tried to stare me down to discourage me from staying there. I did move away after I snapped all these photos much to their chagrin. They don’t even like when I clean the glass on the outside. They chase me back and form as I rub the glass with a cloth. It is quite amusing to watch.

I hope you enjoyed my photos and diatribe. I do have a tendency to go on and on about our fish. They are quite comical and entertaining. Watch for more photos and news about our fish and hermit crab.
