The one fish that you really just love, and I know we all love all of our fish but maybe you have a special spot for one in particular :)

Mine is my blue gourami, I've had him now for a little over a year and since he's my oldest fish I really feel attached to him.

This is a photo from when I first got him, he's grown at least an inch, possibly more, since I've had him. Originally he was kept with my king betta, a dragon goby, and African butterfly and I bought him on a whim. He chased and nipped a lot at first but now that he's used to being with bettas and other fish he's very calm, except for the time I tried to add a paradise fish. Never put paradise fish with bettas, or gouramis.

Mine is Alejandro, he's not the most exotic I have, but he is so cute and his tank is on my nightstand .. he comes to me when I approach the bowl, he swims in my hand, and he likes all the toys I make for him. He is also pretty mellow and just seems like a little puppy. One time I actually thought he might be disappointed when I didn't hang out near his tank before I went to sleep.

Oh also, he follows my finger if I move it around the outside of the tank. He did this pretty much right away after I got him.

That's really hard but if there was a fire and I had to run out of the house with one tank it would be my rutilan family. I have had them a year and a half now and they have several juvenile fry in there and one sub-adult male offspring affectionately dubbed 'Cannibal Lecter'. To me they are irreplaceable as I've actually raised them.

Either them or my honey blue-eyes

Gilbert, first fish ever. :3

@CA- when I was little I had a bad tank with 2 blue gourami 2 paradise fish a breeding pair of convicts and a plec. All the fish were probably too stressed to care about each other. My first blue gourami lived almost 10 years before he got dropsy or something. :(

I have a special place in my heart that can only be filled by Kyon but my favourites at the moment are the 4 Corys.

That's a hard one. I think my favorite fish was my beautiful old little missing eye purple Betta. He was a delta tail that never did well. He had fin rot all the time, he was tailbiting, he had a missing eye, and he was always lethargic. But I loved him dearly as he would do a little dance and look up from resting on his plant as soon as he saw me. I cried the day he died

Historically, probably my favorite fish ever was a big marlble angelfish I named Allanon. He ruled the tank of my youth and lived more or less forever relative to my other fish.

Of the fish in the house right now, Ghost is my fella. He dances for me! My office pal Chicory is a close runner up.
