Right. Kuhlis are the only fish I can't even count.

Daz, I'm thinking you have half the brain the fish has. Judging by how you commented the fish as clever enough to count themselves without you.

Sneaky little dwarf puffer always evades my sight. The tiny size doesn't help either. You would be laughing your head off if you saw me tryinbg to count to 1 in front of my dwarf puffer tank.

I keep track of some of my fish, I check my loaches (except the kuhlis) and plecos every day, my tetras every couple of days, my kuhlis and corys when they'll let me. I take a count of the big schools in my 55 every couple weeks - 12 harlequins, 8 cherry barbs.

I don't count my guppies. They don't call 'em millions fish for nuthin', ya know?

You too? Those kuhlis are quite nocturnal that I never get the chance to see them often.

Never counted guppies when I had a tank with loads of them. Possibly 200.
Those nutty fish could ruin the water quality anyday by their constant bombardment of fry.
But we can always get free food for our angelfish and rams.

I realize I should start counting my harlequins. Most of them are my originals and are nearing their lifespan.

I count them every day, making sure I still have 4 silver dollars, 2 angels, 2 clown loaches, 6 gouramis, 5 platys, 6 cories, 2 plecs and Ralph (but if he was missing I would notice right away). Oh yeah, and 6 cichlids, all with names. :) (these all, of course, in 4 different tanks).
