Hmm, the one that comes to mind right now I guess is a lionhead goldfish. Had them when I was a little kid.. parents took care of them, and now that I think of it I don't think they lived very long.... but I love how they look. I would like to have those someday again.

I love the personalities of bettas. But...my cories are a close second in cuteness & funny behaviors. I am getting kuhlii loaches & gouramis soon so I guess I'll see about them.

I also love the sunfish at lake winnepesauke . We vacation there every year, and the fish by the dock are my temporary pets!! I feed them every day, they swim and nip at me when swimming, accept hand feeding, and even let you pet them! :D :D

hmmm, i see a trend.. lots of different fish are ppl's favorites.. I wanted to post this question because everytime someone asks me I start of with "My angels are # 1 for me, but then you have my Gourami's who I love when they stick out their feelers and tap the glass when u put your hand against it. And well then again I do love the way my Clown loaches sleep on their sides..." By the end of my responce I've named every fish in my aquarium and a few that I saw at the pet shop.

One fish that I am very very very interested in getting is a puffer. But I have to convinvce my wife to let me get another tank :) .

Puffers (aside from the really ugly saltwater ones) are just plain adorable. I also really like my Jack Dempsey, as he has loads of personality. I think he's smarter than my dogs.
