Favorite Fish?

Would like to know what your favorite fish is and why it is your favorite. Tell me anything about the fish you can.

The White Cheek Tang, also known as the Gold Rim Tang (Acanthurus glaucopareius, Acanthurus nigricans) {The fish on Left}. I love the Long Nose Butterfly (Forcipiger flavissimus) as well but more common[ on right]



This is a newer fish i aquired a few months ago. I would have to say that this is a beauty. I guess it would be right up there as one of my favorites, because i have only seen this fish one time in a store or in some ones tank. And it's the one I bought. just not on everyones buy list i guess.

For me its the Jeweled Wrasse (Halichoeres lapillus)



Species info: http://www.fishbase.org/Summary/Spec...sname=lapillus


I've had this guy for about 2 years. Never seen another one. He's the king of the tank. Great fish.[/url]

The Gold Rim Tang is beautiful! I don't know if I have ever seen one in a store. Will have to keep an eye open.
BTW, your pic is great...very sharp & clear.

I thought some of us could learn from you with more experience about fish we would like to acquire.

One good thing here...you don't have to answer if you don't want to.

My favorite fish is my Springeri (Pseudochormis). He has beautiful markings, he's all black with this bright blue stripe down the front of each side of his head top and bottom. I love to watch him in my tank, the way he is always hunting for worms and stuff. You'll be watching the tank and out of nowhere he just pops up and then will disappear as fast as he pops up.
If you check out the pics of my 30 gal reef you'll see him in the picture of the featherduster.

The only problem with the flame hawk is they'll eat your cleaner shrimp. A friend of mine had one and added two cleaner shrimp to his tank and the flame hawk thought he was feeding him and ate them
