why exactly would you want the fastest growing? Just wondering... I would go for a school of something with a little attitude that still grow quite large... and perfect salution would be clown loaches!!!! Not realy agressive if thats what your looking for... but they are epic sweet to watch!

Arapaima Gigas would probably be one of the fastest growing. Up to 4 ft the first year. Better get at least two.

kind off topic when it comes to plants because goldfish eat plants, but goldfish are def one of the fastest growing fish out there.

Annual killies grow very fast, their life cycle is equally fast though. They won't grow more than a couple inches at full size and can be very pretty.

Tin Foil Barbs grow very fast. I found out the hard way when I was a kid. Nice peaceful fish but a real hog.
