The new GaryBusey Wrasse is pretty weird!  🙂

 

Seriously though, I've always found the tassled filefish to be one of the weirder fish out there but they are hit or miss as far as 'reef safe'.  And then you've also got the Cubicus Boxfish but we know about them...

 

I'm a big fan of a full size engineer goby.  Looks like an eel but it's a goby - and very active!

Do you want to keep other fish with them? I'm liking a variety of Predators at the moment. Fu Manchu Lion Fish, Leaf Fish, Scorpinos

Hawkfish? Waspfish?

 

Would love to see someone do a Sea Goblin or Ghoulfish tank

The Hawkfish isn't with tiny fish and shrimp, the Red Rooster Waspfish seems to be okay with what I have read about on other threads. But venomous and a predator so whatever fits in the mouth is likely to be eaten

White spotted Pygmy filefish from ORA is my favorite little oddball.  They grasp onto rocks with their mouth when sleeping, super silly.  I’ve only owned one when I was a complete novice so while it’s is said to be reef safe, I wouldnt have known the difference then.
