Betta, Beautiful and tons of personality packed into three inches. Then comes the German Blue Ram: tricky to keep, but oh, so gorgeous.

I know they're somewhat common, but I really do love my mollies. They've got great personalities, they're hilarious to watch. They're also ridiculously friendly.

Now, I don't know about ALL Raphael cats, but I love *my* Raphael cat. His name is Zorb. He's hilariously grumpy. I rarely see him. But I feed him pellets. I usually put them just outside his hidey pipe by hand because otherwise the mollies will steal them. He comes out and grabs them. We have an understanding.

So after the mollies, I'd have to put cory cats. The're just great little guys who do their own thing around the tank. I like the albinos and pandas the best, but that may be because I have a thing for black and white.

Common. Goldfish.

Maybe just because of the one I have... Mr. Sunshine has his own old-man personality. I love seeing him happy!!!

I love that they're such a misunderstood fish too... all they need is someone who knows how to give them the care they need, and they'll thrive! I love that about Mr. Sunshine. I love feeling like I can take good care of him and give him a happy life!

My senegal bichir is one of my favorite fish. He has such a personality. He doesn't hide much, and I often hand feed him, so we have a sort of bond forged by food.

I also really like my colony of Neolamprologus multifasciatus. They're such beautiful little fish. And the fry are especially cute!

Pseudomugil furcata. They are so pretty. Very active. It's fun to watch them flare.

Pea puffers are underwater helicopter puppies. They're timid vicious killers. Absolutely hilarious.

I really love my featherfin catfish... featherfin synodontis. I had a 14 year old at one time. This one is about 2 or 3 years old now



but to actually pick a favorite would be hard because there are so many cool fish / invertebrate etc..

I really enjoy my Glofish tetras. Very playful fish always waiting for me at the glass




and oto cats are awesome little worker bees

Anything in the North American Native fishes, but more specifically the darter family.

Bettas, beautiful and easily get to recognize you and swim up when you go to tank. Clown Loaches, very pretty, funny in bigger groups (5+), but quite shy and hidey, giving Bold Betta the edge

Kuhli loaches are the cutest fish! They look like little eels!

I've only had these fish for a couple weeks, but my favorite has to be Apistogramma agassizii "Double Red". By far, they are the most peaceful cichlids that I have ever had (even more than Rams).




Kuhli Loaches are good fish too. Very hardy!
