What exactly are you looking for in a wet pet? Are you wanting a fish that comes to your hand when you place it in water or just something active?

+1 no lie if you want a fish that will play with you, dojo loaches are it. Mine playing with my hands every time they are in the tank. Not to mention they are active 24/7 and hilarious because they lay if the weirdest places.

Dojo loaches are even better because you can keep them with goldfish which are also great wet pets themselves

Best wet pet for 55g tank

Short video of mine fish. As I was filming I realized my rusty had another fry. Her last batch isn't older than a month https://youtu.be/KxqWaL3gbTo

I'm looking for something that will be interactive ó meaning it'll notice when I come in the room, come to the front of the tank, possibly let me handle it, and I'd like it to be intelligent as well. Obviously being active and colorful is a plus but the interactive part is my primary concern.

I like the personality of the dojo's, it's just that I hate snakes and they look a lot like snakes to me!

I may have already mentioned this but, try pumpkinseed sunfish! They are the most interactive fish I've kept and GORGEOUS Incredibly intelligent. Mine could recognize me and my mom vs other people (the people who fed him vs the people who didn't ) He let me feed him and handle him. And for being a wild-caught fish, mine learned all this behavior within a year.

Very tempted to get an oscar but I can't say whether or not I'll upgrade to a 75 in the next year or so...
Right, that makes sense. I wish I would of thought ahead in my tank size as well before I bought a new tank. I thought 36 gal was enough I wish I would of bought a 75! There's this 72 gallon bow front that I'm absolutely in love with. I would love to get one lol.

Good luck choosing your fish. I know you'll pick the right one.
