Vote Your Favourite All Time F/W Wet Friend Here !

Ok, thought that this would be a bit of fun - basically, voting the one freshwater fish ( you don't necessarily have to have owned / own it ) that you consider you're favourite, for whatever reason/s.

My personal favourite fish is one I currently own and thats the Red Tail Shark . I love the way it looks, swims and acts around other fish. It has a personality that no other fish seems to have and is a real pleasure to the eye to watch in action.



Let the voting commence !

I would have to say my favorite is the Indian Dwarf Puffer.
aka Bumblebee, Malabar, or Pygmy Puffer.

This puffer is much smaller than other puffers in the same family, as it only reaches a maximum length of 1 inch.

My favorite F/W fish has to be the Cardinal Tetra
IMO one of the most colorful fish, and great in a big school.

Mbunas, African Cichlids of any subspecies. They are very entertaining.

Electric Blue Ahli, Lake Malawi African Ciclid. I would have to say, most awesome color I have ever seen on a f/w. I own one that is about 4 inches long. Purchased as a colorless juvenile at Slice of Nature Pets.

Currently have some small juvies of Africans from their last spawn, they look awesome even as tiny fish.

Well, although they aren't all that exotic, I have to go with the Corydoras catfish as my favorite FW fish.

All time fav, don't really have one.

Current favorite:

watched them for like 3 hours last night, schooled up, swimming around, they appear to be flying!

Only have 5 right now, thinking about 3-4 more.

Long veiled silver angels. Funny thing is I'm getting to the point where I can't stand angels unless they are long veiled and silver.

Kudos on the red tailed shark. Awesome fish.

I would have to say Discus. Never a dull moment and a great challenge. Based on thier reputation as being difficult, every step was a great victory!

Well, I haven't been doing this very long at all, but I have to add another vote for cory catfish! They are just so much fun to watch, so adorable, never bother other fish, and help clean up my tank. One day sometime soon, I hope to keep moorei cichlids, because I think they are absolutely beautiful. I'm keeping an eye out on Ebay and my city paper for a big enough tank.
