I know how many of each species im suppost to have and its not hard to tell if one is not accounted for so there isnt a reason for me to count.

No I have clever fish they count themselves. :roll:
Admit it, that's only because you can't count and they had to teach themselves. 8)

I do a head count every morning before going to work - except the kuhlies, as I can never see them all at once.

Right.:wink2: Kuhlis are the only fish I can't even count.:crazy:

Daz, I'm thinking you have half the brain the fish has.:bluelaugh: Judging by how you commented the fish as clever enough to count themselves without you.:tongue: :wink2:

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. :oops:

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?:shock2: 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.:blink:
But we can always get free food for our angelfish and rams.

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).
