What's your FAVOURITE fish??
 
Well the title is pretty much the question, what's your all time favorite type of aquarium fish...? Its just because I'm curious and want to see what's popular. Mine would be the zebra Danio... What about you???:-)

If I had to choose just one, it would be severum. I have 2, a gold and a green, and I love them to bits. Other people always comment on my gold sev, too. :)

Truth be told, though, I love each one of my babies, from neon tetras to bettas to dwarf gourami to kuhli loaches to acaras.....you get the picture! LOL

(at 8 tanks and counting, btw :P )

for freshwater, im simple.. cardinal or neon tetras. i prefer cardinals over neons, but either works for me.
for salt, def a female leopard wrasse. im also very found of powder blue tangs and bangaii cardinals. but if only one could be choosen, the wrasse.

bettas or dwarf puffers, both extremely intelligent and personable for fish. Also way fun to feed.

Dwarf puffers eating a snail puts a smile on my face.

Currently, I'm in love with Angelfish. The way they form a heirarchy and have their own individual personalities is simply amazing.

Favorite Fish i have: An Orange Lyretail sailfin molly, she is really beautiful, a couple weeks ago i got a blue/red paradise fish that im quickly falling for. she will get a food pellet and play with it like a ball spitting it out grabbing it spitting it out its fun to watch.

If i could have any fish i have seen: Those Mandarins are probably the prettiest fish ever. i would also love a mudskipper my LFS has an open top indoor pond kinda thing and those guys are ridiculously cute.

this almost sounds as if the pellets to big or to difficult to eat. seems like the fish is doing this to soften it up a bit.
i personally would try pre-soaking a few pellets in a shot glass of tank water for 5 minutes prior to feeding the tank. this is especially important for those pellets that puff up when they absorb water, as you wouldnt want them to expand and bloat in your fishes stomach.

i agree thats whats going on onefish2fish, but didnt realize it could be problemmatic?

they are omega one shrimp pellets for my cories. but generally everyone gets into them
