Post a picture of your favourite fish (in your tank, rather than just a stock pic of some fish you'd like)...that is all  :grin:

I have 3 fish left (that I can account for).
1 Banghai Cardinal
1 Lawnmower Blenny
1 Laboutes fairy Wrasse.

The Laboutes has to be my favourite he is a decent size about 5 to 6 inches. He was seemingly unaffected by my recent tank disaster. He has been over the weir, down the emergency pipe and on a sump tour. I thought he wasn't gonna make it that time but he's still with us. He (or she) is a tough cookie for sure!

He is in this old photo...

They are stunning fish.  I saw a pair in Charterhouse Aquatics fish house a year or so ago - beautiful  <3

I used to have a couple of those when I first started but the biggest was the tank bully. He never made the move from the other house unfortunately.

I'm not sure if my favourite fish is eligible here, but here she is anyway. Meet Tuka, my gorgeous Pseudacanthicus pitanga :)

She's no shy retiring bottom-dweller but often a blur of green, orange and red scattering other fishes in her wake. Definitely boss of my 450L tank ;)

P.S. Sorry about the state of the tank!

Yes, not predatory but definitely a carnivore. Mine enjoys whole mussels, chunks of cod fillet, plus shrimps and prawns. Occasionally a bit of green veg and also gobbles up pellets and gel foods of any sort. Great big greedy fat fish!
