Re: What Is Your Favorite Fish In The Tank

My favorite fish are a tie between Loaches and Plecos. My favorite Loach is the Burmese Boarder Loach (Botia kubotai). They stay small (abt 4in) and are very entertaining. As, for the plecos, I had only one so far, it being the the Clown Pleco (Panaque maccus), but I still liked a lot for he had a big attitude for such a small fish. I don't have any pictures, sorry.

Fish are Friends, not Food.

Re: What Is Your Favorite Fish In The Tank

I like them all, could do without the tetras but those are mainly for the kids.

My angel that just died was my favorite in the tank when it was alive, it had to be in every picture I took of the tank.

However I have two 9k gallon tanks at work, The musky is my favorite beacuse of his determination, not even 3' long and eating a full grown rainbow trout, he has a few more to go before he starts on the other gamefish.

Re: What Is Your Favorite Fish In The Tank

My little convicts are my favorite. They are tough sob's and only 2" big right now. Had them for a couple months now, and now that they are about to have some fry, they dont take crap from anyone.

Re: What Is Your Favorite Fish In The Tank

My fave would have to be my 2 year-old clown loach. He's about 4" long and just has a blast being the BFOC (Big Fish on Campus). LOL He has a little buddy who is about one year old, and half his size. They swim in circles and just have a good ol' time doing their loach things.

Recently we moved them from one room to another we use more often. My wife looked under the stump and saw that "Senior", the older clown loach, was lying on his side. She said, "I think Senior might be dead." I asked her why, and she told me about him lying on his side. I told her, "Nah, he's just hanging out. That's what he does." She didn't believe me until she got closer to the tank. He rolled over, shot out of the stump, and started swimming as he always does. Now my wife is used to his "clownish" behavior. :D

Re: What Is Your Favorite Fish In The Tank

My favorite would have to be the trout in my tank. I have a tank with Kribensis and Zebra Danios, but I found a baby trout at Lake Tahoe and decided to put it into my tank and hes doing wonderfully. He thinks he is part of the zebra danios and he eats flake food (and duckweed). Had him for a couple months and he is really active even in the warm water. He only stayed about three inches long but he has the coloring of a full grown rainbow trout now. Sorry, my camera sucks so I couldnt get a decent picture :/

Re: What Is Your Favorite Fish In The Tank

Hello everyone, this is my first post! My favorite fish (hence the user name) are my keyholes, and 2nd goes to my elephant nose.

The keyholes are such a timid cichlid I was so surprised at how well they do in the community tank when I bought them. I even kept them with discusautolinker.com autolinking image for a short while, with no ill effects.

Re: What Is Your Favorite Fish In The Tank

i really like my guppies because of the way they move around in my tank... i only have 2 at the moment.. but i'm planning on getting more...they are really loving the bubbles.. i got a better air pump and it really made a difference.. haha they swim down the flow of bubbles and then come out and ride the current between curtains of bubbles and then go down again hahahahha

Oh, the shark has pretty teeth, dear, And he shows them pearly white. Just a jack-knife has Macheath, dear, And he keeps it out of sight.

Re: What Is Your Favorite Fish In The Tank

Right now, one of my favorites is my Brachyrhaphis roseni. I just like the way they look. Some day my attempt to breed them will succeed but for right now I just admire them. This is a near-adult female.

Re: What Is Your Favorite Fish In The Tank

i think my favorite fish, as of right now, has got to be the platy.
they are very bright, a little bit bulkier and tougher, and they are livebearers.

55 gallon freshwater
1 marble veil angelfish
1 tetra
4 black neon tetras
1 tiger barb
2 red platies
2 sunset platies
1 sunset fire wag platy
2 minnows
10+ apple snails
3+ ramshorn snails
Still in process of stocking 55 g
Going to start experimenting on breeding platies
Wish me luck!

Re: What Is Your Favorite Fish In The Tank

my favorite would have to be tiger barbs because they are so full of energy and can eat like a pig...i have five tigers and 3 gold barbs that are like brothers...its so fun to watch them chase each other for the cave.
