What is your favorite tropical fish?

this is just a thread so you can all post up your favorite fish. please say the name of the fish and if you like, say why you like it so much. me personally i would have to say the bala shark because of its shape and how streamlined it is.

thank you!!

I have always liked Senegal Birchirs. I have not had one ever (I don't even have a FW tank right now), but I have always wanted one. I just love the way they look, and their personality.

Oscars and cool fish too. Never had one of them either.

Bettas! Besides the fact that they are absolutely gorgeous, they have amazing personalities. And, unlike other fish with unique personalities, they stay small which is a definite plus for someone with no room for a huge tank ;) Their little quirky behaviors are so cute too!

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 )

Can I have two favorites? Tiger barbs and yoyo loaches. They are both so active, they visually entertain me with their playful and sometimes naughty behavior.

Mine would have to be the platies. They range in color and usually stay out in the open for you to watch them. Plus I LOVE finding little babies in my tank everyonce in a while. I haven't had anything other than a community tank though so all I know are platys, bettas, mollies, tetras, guppies, some loaches and my corys.

My favorites would be everything I have in my tank. I love them all. If I had to pick... it would have to be the loaches, hands down...nutty, boisterious fun-loving fish. Love their crazy antics!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Chinese algae eaters. They seem to have fun exploring the tank.
