Which of your fish is your favorite??

Ok, so I'm a little bored...Which of your fish is your favorite and why? Post pics if you can

Mine is a blue marble angel. He's not shy at all...he comes right to the glass when I get close (and he's watching me, not just begging for food). AS SOON as I lift my head off the pillow in the morning he knows i'm awake and he sets off the fish alarm to get all the other fish to the glass to wait for breakfast. EVERY time I vacuum the tank he nips at my arm to get me out of HIS tank. Who says fish don't have personality????

my favorite would have to be my dwarf puffer (: i recently just got her so shes still trying to figure me out. but she is very curious and will come to the front of the tank and once i get closer she'll scoot a little farther back then come a little more up. so cute ^_^

I don't have a puffer but I've plenty about then cause I'm going to get one-some day. They need a heavily planted tank and they are a bit picky on foods.
GBR-> German blue ram

My chubby goldie, Hans. He's the most lively and adorable fish. He gets into all sorts of shenanigans and loves to nibble fingers. He looked brown at the lfs, but under my lights he looks purple!

well they are picky eater but once you find out what they like its easy, they have a large bioload but its okay. the need heavily planted tanks if you want more then one. ive had sucess housing kuhli loaches and ottos with my puffer but it depends on personality. you need a 5g for 1 or a 10g for 2-3. the more you have the more hiding places you need

Are the puffers brackish water fish?? I don't know why, but i just thought they were one of the harder fish to care for.

Hmmm.... Hard to pick one, but I would say, if pushed, my Albino Bristlenose Pleco.
