| || | Fish have personality, which is one of the reasons I keep them. I am glad that you as a newer member of the aquarium hobby is finding this out rather quickly! Some fish have a lot more personality than others [this is why I am a big fan of New World Cichlids and Anabantids or Labyrinth fish because they tend to like to show their personalities off more than other fish] and they can be quite entertaining to watch.

Poor Barbie. You can see where they punctured her with the dyeing needle. She seems to be doing pretty well, though. Lol, she's a moody one. It always looks like she's giving the other fish the '"stink-eye" I never knew fish were even capable of that.
