Awesome! I love going to the fish store (the good ones, at least) and looking at all the awesome things.

The fish you said you think is a tang is a saltwater angelfish (the one after it might be too), and the fish you described as super bright are discus. I don't know the rest.

Cool thanks for the info! I had a blast looking at all if them. There was a tank of tiny pirhanas eating each other tho. It was... gruesome.

the swirly one is also an Angelfish, the yellow with lipstick kind of looks like one too.

the two unknown critters are blennies.

You do have pictures of my alltime FAVORITE fish ever, though! I love Piranhas! ^_^

Ahh, you would have loved this store, then! They had a HUGE tank of piranhas and then a smaller tank of little piranhas haha. I think the little ones were only, like, $15 apiece or something. But yeah, I can't do piranhas... hahaha. They are super duper SPARKLY, though! I was genuinely shocked!

Pygocentrus piranhas definitely are, and they're super cute as babies. ^_^

I should have taken some pictures of the little ones! They were all pretty beat up, though, honestly. All of them were missing chunks somewhere or other. It really was pretty gruesome lol

they all do that. That's how they are in the wild too, they just nip off of each other as they go, and only do a feeding frenzy if they're really hungry.
