I'm biased. Goldfish, obviously.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Discus get my vote followed by most all of the south american cichlids. Oh!! and loaches!

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

All though I have never had them my brother has had both Oscars and Cichlids in different tanks of course, not sure what kind they were bright yellow, and they all have been very personable. The Cichlids would follow your finger if you ran it along the glass.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

I have a 55 gallon, 40 gallon, 29 gallon, 20 gallon tank, 5 gallon , and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

Oh thank you so much everyone :) So many options! I can't wait to be able to try and set up another tank ;)

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )

Oscars. Bloody clever fish, easily "trained" to do fun things like jumping and hand feeding.

I have a 55 gal. Community tank and I have 1 Angelfish that I bought as a baby the size of a dime that is now over 6" big. His name is Stripe and he sure has a personality. When you walk by the tank he is right their looking at me and follows you from one end to the other. I can use a lazer cat toy light and he will follow it. I wish that I had a Angelfish tank but I was told to get 1 to grow up with my other fish so I would not have problems. He shares the tank with 2 Boesmani Rainbow fish, 6 Harlequen Rasboras, 6 Dwarf Rasboras, 1 Bushy Nosed Pleco, 4 Assassin Snails, 2 Female German Red Lace Snakeskin Guppies, 1 Male Red Snakeskin Guppy. I Would go with a Angelfish only tank. Just remember that that a dime size angelfish can grow to about 6" as an Adult.

I agree with the fancy goldfish for personality. I also like Angel fish for personality and species only tanks.
