Killifish is a Duch word that means steam or brook but otherwise they are basicly small colorful fish that come from africa and the amazon basin.

Yes, what is a fillifish? Inquiring minds want to know!

I chose Anabantids -- the labyrinth fishes.

I would add Plecos to your list. Right now, someone who wanted to vote for pleco has to vote for catfish. This way you would have a better tally of the votes between plecos and catfish.

Oh, Killifish, not Fillifish! The hatchery I go to has lots of killies.

You should edit that in your list!

Killifish does NOT mean Steam or Brook in Dutch :P Sorry......
It doesn't mean anything really in dutch, just a name like you guys use it.
Sorry for nagging.

My favorite? Hard call, cichlids or catfish or plecos. But my favorite fish is keyhole cichlid....offcourse :P
