Include pics if you have them!:D

This is my favorite so far. (Jewel) I recently had a white top afra male that was gorgeous!!! Buuuut I could not find a female so I sold him at the pet store. Funny thing....once the pet store took him, they placed him in a tank with big cichlids and now his color is all gone and hes a lead grey color. (No wonder he is not selling he he he)

Favorites are so hard for me. I have different favorites on different days. Currently I'm pretty anamored with my pair of German Blue Rams. They are a very young pair, but bonded already. I'm keeping an eye out for egg laying behavior. I have to agree with ntiggr2 about their coloration. The females pink tummy is a plus as well as the beautiful blue and yellow.

I'm also fascinated with my latest arrival, a tiny Peacock Godgen. He's just so cute!

Other than fish, I'd have to say my two small fiddler crabs are wonderful entertainment. It's so comical when they climb different rocks and throw "gang signs" at one another or passing fish.

My favorite freshwater fish are kuhli loaches. They have such cute personalities and because of their eel-like body shape they can do things that a lot of other fish can't do, such as hanging from the plants in the tank like snakes.

I have a cave in my kuhli loach tank where I keep about 8 kuhli loaches. Because they like to congregate together they are usually all in the cave together at one time. When I feed them something they really like, such as mysis shrimp, they all come swimming out of the cave at once and it is really something to watch. It looks like a swarm of small snakes.

Of course there are many other fish that I also like as well, but if I put down ALL of my favorites it would take me about three years to write this post.:)

everytime I had kuhli loaches I thought I lost them until they popped there heads out of the gravel. I know they are better kept with a sandy bottom so they can move around easily.

I love Discus fishes. They are so beautiful! I could have how many I want if I lived in a palace:)

my favorite fish that I own is my Featherfin Synodontis cat Arnold (my only good pic is my avatar). I'll post a new pic soon. he is also slimmer and less active than usual, though I feed him the same amount all the time...... any advice? I'm trying to give him more food, but it's a little tricky in a tank full of african cichlids.......

i have one , it was in my cichlid tank, but i moved him to my goldfish tank, after i redid my cichlid tank. Ta get him some more protien in his diet. He's my personal favorite too. (of the fish that i own)

If you look at my video in the african section, The 1st vid, you can see him hanging out in the left back corner.

My featherfin is the first catfish I've had that is intelligent enough to recognize his owner. before that, the only catfish i'd had were corys and glass cats. he likes my mom more than me!! and I'm the one who feeds him! By the way, he's my avatar. <---

my 12 inch arowana... longest i have ever had one ;), even though my 3 year old thought he was hungry, so she dumped her package of goldfish crackers into the tank turning it a murky mess. I then placed him in the community tank where he picked off 2 of my marble sailfin mollies.
