The favorite I can keep (well supposedly can not had any luck so far) would be a flame fin tang. My dream would be a black tip shark. I used to go to the beach for the 1 reason of playing with black tips, they always acted like dogs around my legs and didn't mind me petting them.

My favorite is most of the ocean critters, but I really love dolphins. I even have 3 tattooed on my body. :cool:

I actually just got him today, but my all time favorite saltwater creature is e mantis shrimp. Today, I got my very own GONODACTYLUS smithii mantis shrimp (I’ve typed it so much my phone has it as a recommendation )

Okay, I have favorites for different reasons, and picking one is soooo hard. Now I know how my kindergarteners feel when I ask their favorite and they tell me everything or go on for minutes naming all they can think of.

Beluga whale has to win it though. It is the creature that got me into the sea life. It inspired me to my current place in reef land.

Juvenile dragon wrasse is a favorite for sure. Ugh why do they have to grow up into something looking like my sleep paralysis demon . I hate how adult dragon wrasses look.

I've always wanted Macro Algae in my Aquarium. With this setup, I’ve been able to keep and grow five different kinds. Not sure what is different though. BTW, several years ago a Maryland Couple picked up two Sea Turtles while they were in Florida. Raised them for several years, till they got too big. They got into a lot of trouble, after they tried to re-home them.

Def wish I could house Glaucus atlanticus but that would be illegal and close to impossible.

It's a toss up for me, I love both cephalopods and just the biggest and best chonky boys out there. In regards to the puffers, it's more a matter of tank size and funds. When it comes to the the cephalopods, I love both the flamboyant cuttlefish and the striped pyjama squid. If you have never heard of the latter, I highly recommend looking them up. I am not sure if they are able to be kept, but I have never seen one in the hobby. If you ever get the chance, the monterey bay aquarium tentacles exhibit has them and is absolutely amazing like everything there! (totally realize I forgot to include the ocean sunfish, they are majestic)
