Electric catfish has to be the worst out there.


Actually, I don't like the flowerhorn. Ugly fish.

I'm not a huge fan of hybrid fish. Parrot Cichlids just make me sad... There's one at my LFS that can't close its mouth in its old age because it is a hybrid.

I won't go as far as to say that I actually dislike any fish, but I'm not a big fan of messing around with mother nature...

Any of the 'colored' tetras; strawberry tetras, blueberry tertras, etc...

Let me explain... It's not the fish itself but the thought that people actually inject them with dye to color them. I won't buy them because I will not support the practice of modifying them.

FW angelfish. I find them to be too aggressive towards the other fish....too destructive to the plants....and a little dopey looking, lol.

I would have to say the Damsel. Boy are they mean, IME . Darn near killed my Perc. pair. I even put him in my QT tank for a week but he went back to the same behavior immeditely upon his return to the big tank. He had to go back to the store.
Evil tiny fish

RE: Targaboy

Yeah. Aren't tetras beautiful enough already, anyway? They're some of the most colorful fish in the FW trade!!

Also, fish with transparent bodies are VERY cool. No need to add dye to them!

For some reason I can't stand Tetras. I don't know why...I just don't like them. I never have...I've had a couple in the past, but I didn't care for them. Now I hate those parrot cichlids. They are so ugly and it's pathetic that we had to get in there and interfere with the way they look. EW. I also do NOT support dying of fish.

Punkymom, I have the same prejudice against mollies and platies, oh and goldfish. I'm just getting over it...

I guess I sorta have a thing against really popular fish (exception Neons, which my g/f wanted). It helped me to really scrutinize some of the mollies/platies at my LFS. I started to realize what fantastic fish they are. But I'm still not going to get any... SO many other cool fish out there that most ppl don't own! What's the point? I get the impression, from the Dragon Fish that you're the same way! Rock on!
