I'm 41 years old now so it's been quite a while. I have learned so much here on this forum. I always enjoyed my tanks but life got crazy and I have been away from them for some time. It's good to get back in to it.
Sounds like you have a great interest in the fish keeping world lol. As for your daughter, as she gets older, show her new fish and introduce her into different kinds of others.
Also you say that shaggy is a lazy fish, its only because he is trying to figure out what the heck is going on and is most likely a slow adjuster.
Give him some time, he'll come around and be a spunky little fishy.
