Favourite fish


Everyone's gotta have a fav fish in their tank, what's your absolute favourite?

Mine would have to be my penguin tetra. He's/She's (don't know) the only one in my tank, but thinks it's a black neon. It's my favourite one because it seems to show more character than all the other fish. Not bad looking either.

My Congo Tetras...but the batch I got were wild caught and are full of worms I just can't seem to get rid of

A close second are my G. incisus.

For now, my banjo catfish. He goes swimming upside down after eating a whole algae waffer, with a huge swollen belly. It used to be my royal pleco, which kept poking the banjo out of his cave neneath a piece of wood, then, after a long while, when he found out the banjo in another cave, he did the same. And he was surprised when he found the banjo buried in the sand, like shocked to know someone could do that.

All of them! I don't think that I could pick one specific fish. But right now, my favorite groups of fish are Rainbows, Killies, and Tetras, in that order.

I only have three left, but Lemon Tetras are one of my favorites. It's always fun to see the males sparring with each other.

I don't really have a favorite... I appreciate all of them for different reasons.... Each tank has a totally different look and feel and each fish has some unique attribute that I find appealing....

My favorites are my baby cherry barbs. I had a female for years and a couple months ago I bought an male albino cherry barb. They spawned and now there are 5 that are that are about a month old and I just noticed some newborns.

This is hard I have a few... Rummy nose tetras, Endlers livebearers & YO-YO loaches. Sorry, just could not choose one.

Currently, in my tank? African Butterfly fishies. They are grumpy, boring, and try to snatch everything that fits into their mouths. Throw a fly into the tank, and before it hits the surface, it is already history... The female usually beats up the smaller male, but sometimes they have a good day and start to wiggle and kiss. Doesn't last too long though. I think their fins and they way they move is beautiful, but some say they are just plain ugly.
They are different
