Favorite reef fish?

Hey guys,
Just curious what your favorite fish is? Based on any criteria. Overall appearance, color, behavior.
Pictures if you have one!

that is a beautiful angel.

I really like Powder blue tangs and Powder brown tangs, but may never own one because of their aggression and their being prone to ich.

Ahh, don't let it stop you. If you have a "dream" fish and the means, come up with a plan and give it a shot.

I like to try something for myself in the hobby instead of admiring from afar and listening to the ney sayers. For the longest time, I thought a Majestic Angel would be too difficult--going back to the early nineties. It was "That" fish for me. I tried one and realized they're easy and I'm glad I did. I have always had one in my tanks over the past 20 years.

Wow twenty years! Hearing that makes it easier to be patient for those fish on my "fish list" when space is more abundant!

Hey, I just realized. You're a fellow Marylander. If you're ever looking for great spots to shop for fish, let me know. I know the good ones off the beaten path

Definitely! The only true fish stores I've been to are CTE aquatics which opened up in Timmonium not too long ago and That Fish Place in lancaster

I love Phil at CTE. Good dude. I get most of my fish there. But what you might not know of is.............drum roll please

Roozen's Nursery
roozenhome

German dude that has an incredible set up in the back of the nursery where he sells the most amazing saltwater fish and corals. Worth the drive. About 45 minutes. Saltwater stuff only here.

Also, check out these people if you're into corals or need live rock
Maryland Corals for Sale | Saltwater Fish | Inverts | Reef | Clams
On the Eastern Shore but WELL WORTH THE DRIVE. Incredible set up.

Both these places sell to the public, but really are geared up for wholesale. I got a one inch Majestic Angel (pre color change) from Roozens for 50 bucks........extremely hard to find that size. Their stuff is direct import from family on the either side of the ocean. No middlemen and very clean.
