Might be yo yo loaches since I've yet to give up on them. Apart from the 2 regulars in there, I reckon I've lost maybe 5 now from jumping out of gaps in the tank cover. Fine for months and then they go sight-seeing So annoying to have them lost like that!

Plecos. Not fancy ones either. Just your average run of the mill commons, BN, and rubber lip.

Have you tried adding a powerhead? I had incidents with yoyo loaches jumping into filters way back. Adding a big powerhead literally stopped the problem instantly. In my 55 gallon recently as well, I just upped the number of filters/flow and they've entirely stopped trying to salmon-style up the HOB. Small sample size, but considering loaches' love of current I can see why it would work.

It has to be a little Colombian tetra I have named Survivor. I moved a plant out of one of my tanks that has Colombian red fins in it to a non heated goldfish tank.The tank was drained down to on an inch of water in order to move it. Then I filled it with tap water and moved the gold fish in. A few weeks later I see a little fish swimming around couldn't even tell what it was. 4 months later I have a good sized Colombian Redfin swimming with two fancy gold fish. It even survived a battle of ich I received complementary of one of the goldfish I bought.

This little guy is going against everything I new about fish.

I just reread the title. I originally read hardiest not hardest -quite the opposite oh well.

My hardest fish was Fugu puffer or saddleback puffer. Second would be South american puffer otherwise known as Bumble Bee puffer, brazilian puffer.

Gold fishes . 😀 they always used die in my tank within a few weeks by themselves or by biting each other.

Panda Cory's.
I have a really top notch planted community tank, shrimps are breeding like rabbits and the peppered Cory's have bred despite the best efforts of my BN to clean the eggs off the glass. But Pandas are proving to be be really difficult.
I have a new batch of 6 in my QT which are looking good and I will keep them in there for 3-4 months until grown a bit and fattened up. Maybe this time I will be lucky.

I hate to repeat others but,GBR.
I know many of you are going to have NO sympathy for me,or take this seriously.
For me they live in the fishroom.
Not one in my DT and I have added a few!
I need to set 'some' aside and see how long they really last.
I have had WAY BETTER success keeping the 'forbidden Mandarin Goby' in every marine tank I have had since the 1980's!
With most of them(mandarins) lasting 4-6 years.
I still think 2 years for a GBR is a long life but such a short time in my tanks!
It is this disappointment and difficulty that drive me to keep trying.

I have RCS that die, but then another red variety that breed like crazy now. Not sure exactly what kind they are though.

What kind of shrimp seem to be the most difficult to keep? I've heard Amanos are pretty hardy if you maintain your water parameters. They're also larger too, which is a plus when the most common thing I've heard about RCS is how quickly they're eaten by other fish! haha

Amanos are very hard, in my experience. RCS should be in a tank with smaller sized fish as well.
