Which fish do you enjoy watching the most?

Which fish give you the most pleasure in terms of habits and behaviour?

I'm mesmerized by my CPDs. Mine dart in an out of cover. They are shy, but if I sit still they will start chasing each other.

And I'll stare at my Scarlet Badis for hours. They are such deliberate wee hunters, stalking about the tank. Click image for larger version

Boesemani rainbows. I just got the fish yesterday. While everyone else was timid and checking things out they were all right out in the open zipping about, playing in the current, coming right up to the glass when I approached it. When I threw a little food in there they were the only ones to go after it and they were mauling those little pellets.

ID:	258703 cong tetras. They are beautiful, very active, the tank always looks busy. They need a 55 gallon tank I think because they are on the large side. I also love pearl gourami and honey gourami, very graceful and deliberate in their behavior.

I really enjoy my elephant nose, had him for over 3 years and never get bored of him. He's very personable and always out and about. Click image for larger version

I know they've become pretty cliche in the aquarium world, but I just really love Neon Tetras. It always just amazes me that such bright little things are real.

I agree with coursair, I'm really digging the hierarchy of the cpds. Theyve really come out of the shell.. out in front all the time now, picking and chasing.. harmless of course.. and their is always my beloved dwarf cichlids which will always be the starts of my setup(s)

I would say my convict or pseudotropheus aurora. Cichlids in general are interesting to me because they're so intelligent and almost remind me of dolphins.
