The betta will always be a favorite of mine. Its amazing how this fish has undergone specialized breeding to result in so many beautiful variations- veiltail, halfmoon, delta, lyretail, crowntail, plackat, giants, irredescents, marbles, dragons, butterflies, all those beautiful colors and patterns etc. And those are just the man-made bettas. Wild species are beautiful too and very interesting.

I think my second favorite is the Bala shark, but its sad that a lot of people don't do research before buying them. Not much is more impressive than a school of 8" black edged silver flashes in a huge planted tank!

Did anybody else have a hard time answering that question? I am such a fish guy that I can't pick a favorite!

Of those listed, I like the look of tiger oscars (dark with orange).
But I don't have a favourite either - in fact, I don't think I have a favourite "anything" in my life. I'm a "keep my options open" sort of gal!

I'm just like miller_fritz, & can't choose one over the other & I don't have an absolute favourite, but I do tend to prefer the smaller slim-lined fish & the less aggressive types.
