We all have had that one fish we have truly loved above the rest. Maybe it was how we obtained it, the look of it, or how it did in our tanks. I am wondering what is the best fish you have ever had in your tank.

Mine is probably my Diamond goby! He is the coolest ever! I love how he constantly moves sand around (him & I do battle occasionally on this) But I really love how he has no fear whatsoever. When I get up close to the tank to really see things, he is face to face staring right back at me with his mouth up against the glass. Now I don't know if he is is just saying "hi", or being overly territorial, or what, but it is really cute.

Sounds similar to our watchman haha, except when I get close he vanishes

I’ve always loved my clown pairs but I had an algae blenny that was the sweetest dude who would sit in the palm of my hand and chill.

I like my blue dot puffer enough that when he started eating acans and acting overwhelmed in my tank, I made a second tank for him.

For some reason Yellowheaded Jawfish remain my favorite. Love watching them work. Don't have one currently but on my "to add" list.

As far as current inhabitants, my flame hawk is a riot. That fish has a ton of personality and is all over my tank in the craziest places.

I miss this guy in my old set up. What a cool fish.

Jadeveon clowney the maroon clownfish was my favorite. (We are big SEC football fans in my house) Never went farther than 6inches from its nems and if you swim by them you would regret it…made the opposite side of the tank very active

In my fish only, I have a trigger that eats out of my hand every meal. Even with his fangs he swims up and gently takes his food.
