    Hi,

    During my time with this marine hobby I have come across stunning, scares, expensive, cheap, comon and all types of different fish.

    I know that each reefer has their own specific taste when selecting fish for their systems, but it got me wondering..... . . . .

    If you have to select just one fish for your system, which one will it be? This has to be your favorite fish of all time regardless if its comon or cheap. I have found fish with the most caracter and personality like the Percula clowns are cheap but an all time favorite.

    I know this is difficult and all of us love all da fish in da see, but lets put together a list of the most sought after fish.

    My all time favorite, and I honostly can't really put my finger on this, is the Naso Lipstick Tang! I get so excited when I see this fish. It has these clear eyes that stare right through you with loads of personality and stunning colours when it reaches adult phase.

    So far my favorite is the Regal Tang. My grandson always come and say: "Hello Dory." Only 2 years old.

    I am no fish expert, so let me be the first idiot to get it totally wrong...

    Judging by the dorsal and anal fin, I must say it is a type of Trigger - but which one? Cant find it.

    Then, if I look at the "eyebrows" that looks like a type of puffer to me...

    Hmmmm...

    I know it must a predator type of fish, as this is Frans's terrain... ;)
