Favorite Fish Color

This is obviously not the most important part of fish keeping but I am curious to see what you favorite color of fish is. I certainly keep color in mind when I am stocking fish. Its not my first priority, but I like for things to match (my ocd says "hello").
I really love yellow fish. They look so bright and are unique. I think yellow tangs might be the most beautiful fish IMO.

blue,red,and black. i like how black contrasts with other colours on the fishes body to make them stand out. even though blue and red are very common colours,a lot of fish dont look that great red/blue,but when they look good,they look really good

Sounds like you might love German blue rams or some Bolivians!

Mandarins are amazingly colorful! But, yes, they do lack the basic black and white. Black and white fish can definitely look awesome, like those little b&w damsels (exact name is currently escaping me).
