Oscars!
<-----------

Big, friendly and smart. It's a great crowd pleaser to dangle some food about a cm above the water for him to jump for, then stick my fingers in the tank allowing him to rub his forehead against it. My friends love that. It's funny when they try it, they get bit.

I don't have any fish of my own just yet, but I'm hooked on Gouramis as you can see by my user name. I'm especially like the Opaline and Pearl.

My favorite fw fish would be without a doubt, the pleco. With angels, discus and cories all running close for second place.

Favorite saltwater fish is false or true percula clowns.

Freshwater is a tough choice. I have had a lot of freshwater fish. One of my favorites was definetly the knight goby I had awhile back. Cool fish.

I had two sabre tooth barracudas that were the most interesting fish to watch when they ate, but I still have to vote for plecos because they are useful and very active.

Well,

I am a comparitively new to the hobby and have kept only small fish.

My favs are:

Cory cats: They know what 'shoaling' means! They lie on top of each other and swim cutely with rapid head movements.
Otto: A great 'janitor' of the fishtank
Sunshine gourami- Pretty color, lot of character

-Sagar

I like angels just because of the way they pose with their nose in the air like they are loyalty or such
