whats your fastest fish?

just a question for fun,
i have always thought zebra danio is the fastest fish.

it spins around a 2 feet fish tank in mere seconds,
and apparently they never gets tired,
swimming every seconds and never stopping.

Used to be a sae, but I dont keep them no more. I would say its yoyo loaches. If you spook them they will dart away so fast you almost think they were never there.

I second this. I bought a yoyo loach on impulse, so I then decided to return him. Catching him was fun. Holy bad word!?!?!?! My tank is 3ft long, and he would dart from one end to the other in less then 2 seconds!!

****** Chinese Algae Eater when I try to catch it to get rid of it, bought it when I first set the tank up, did not know what it was and not know any better. Now I know what a mistake it was. Can't use a bottle trap, beta sorority and two different types or Corey's.

Clown loaches I kept were extremely fast when being pursued with net(s).
Otherwise ,I could almost feed em by hand.

My Flying Fox are like torpedos in the tank. It was a nightmare moving them from my 10G to my 40B. Especially in a heavily planted tank.

My fastest would have to be the madagascar rainbowfish, [censor] torpedo! Not quite sure who would get second place.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

My pencilfish would have to qualify as the fastest. Those suckers can move so fast.

On the other hand my bumble bee gobies are the slowest. They even go straight up to my hand and let me catch them.

Lol I was just about to say this. But for it would have to be zebra danios that I kept. If we're talking about current fish in our tanks I'd have to say my neon tetras (gourami is fast but big and easy to catch then).
