    Since we’re talking dream fish.

    A Unicorn/puppy fish would be cool and super cute for my kids.

    An opera or rap (I know, very opposite) singing fish is a definite. (Changed this to rapping opera fish)

    Lastly, a bottle opener fish that jumps out of the water to open my beer. That one should probably first. A real crowd pleaser.

    Lol how is a conspicuous angel to rich but not a gem tang!
    Mine is a powder blue tang- have it!
    A unicorn tang
    And an Achilles tang
    Although once I complete that list one day I'll probably have made a new one.

    Mine would be
    Marine betta: got it
    Pearlscale butterfly: still looking

    Third would be an arapaima, sadly I will most likely will never own because I can’t afford a 10,000 gallon tank.

    How much are they now a days? 40 may be the minimum. They are more of a stalking fish than swimmer. They can do well on fewer but larger meals but mine is happy taking smaller pieces of frozen with the rest of the tank. He's awesome

    I have niger trigger and my favourite with my limited fish . Fantastic personality and incredible blue colour.
    My dream fish is Moorish idols in a very large system. Remember diving with them when I grew up in South Africa.

    One day in a fowl or predator tank:

    1. Japanese Dragon Eel

    2. A wartskin angler with great patterns like this:

    3. Giant sized Emperor Angel

    ...runner up is an Aus. Harelquin Tusk which I already have but still counts as a dream fish.

    Quoy's parrotfish ... in my display.

    Regal angelfish ... in QT; fingers crossed!

    Last is kind of a tossup between two personalities that couldn't be more different - Copperband butterfly and Powderblue tang.

    There are others, for sure . . .

    My Answers would probably be considered boring: Blonde Naso, Blue Hippo and Achilles Tang - Don't think I would ever have a tank big enough though.
