What are your favorite fish??

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. 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 :lol: . 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 :) .

I've got lots of favorites too. But some of the top ones are angels, severums, pearl gourami, congo tetras, boesemani rainbows, redline torpedo barbs and cories.

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.

That is hilarious about your Jack Dempsey & Dogs.
