The illusive little sucker!

I want an Imperial Zebra Plecostumus however, they are no longer available in the U.S. They're rather small for a pleco about 3" full grown but, what a striking black and white zig-zag patterned fish. They're native to S. America, Peru I think and do not breed in captivity. That's why they're thousands of dollars a piece. Has to be the most expensive fish per size ever. If anyone finds a more inexpensive source for these fish please let me know.

I would really love to have a Blue Mandarin Golby.. One day, maybe I'll have the proper set up to keep one...To me, they are the most beautiful creature under the sea.....

Let's see: Rainbowfish, gouramis, various shrimps, various african cichlids and discus. All of these I am planning to get except the discus. I'd love to have the species but I just don't think I'd have what it takes to keep and take care of them.

I would love to have a full grown arapaima gigas, captive raised. If my dorm room itself was a tank it still wouldn't be anywhere big enough though.

There are a lot of fish I would like to have. most of which I think are too easy to kill for a tropical fish beginner like me. The fish I have had all lived very long lives, but I don't want to take chances.

Hmm... into my current set-up I could only have some more tiger barbs and a school of Black Neons that I only can't get right now because the silly tank refuses to stop killing my babies. But... if I could have any tank(s)... and any amount of money for stock... the list would go on FOREVER...

A 45G amazon tank with,
2 discus (probably both turquise, or 1 blood red and 1 turquise)
10 Cardinals
4 or 5 panda corys
4 or 5 ottos.

Cant because of lack of space and not enough money

I want an aggressive fish tank with fish like cichlids and a salt water tank but if I bought any more tanks my parents would probably be mad. Plus my dad won't let me buy a salt water. Yesterday though, he asked me if I could put clownfish in my tank. I told him they were saltwater and he sounded sad.

I want a seahorse but my tank is not big enough and they need to be kept in a species only tank.

I voted in the poll a long time ago and after being introduced to so many fish through this site, I've narrowed down the fish I really want that I can't have.

All of them that I don't have already! ;D

Seriously though, I've been fascinated by Cichlids lately.

I'm hoping to take my empty 50 gallon corner tank and turn it into a discus showcase in my living room. And I would also like to put a ton of live plants I'm my tank someday.
I think my fishkeeping dreams are in reach.

I DO have a fish I really really want but can't get it. The reason is I've got not enough cash to buy it and for a large tank for it. I've also haven't any space left in my house to keep it.

I really would like to have Angelfish but the tanks I have set up now are too small. For my dream tank that's still in shrink wrap from moving, I really want Discus for it but that's not going to happen living so far from a decent pet store...

I would love to get a green spotted puffer after reading PFP's posts and seeing them buzz around smiling in the LFS. I rent out a tiny bedroom (yay grad school budget!) and I already have 3 tanks, just don't have room and time to happily house, care, or feed a puffer...one day though.

A Jaguar Cichlid...C. managuese, but I don't have a big enough tank.

And a lionfish, of course. Everyone wants a lionfish. How can you *not* want a lionfish? lol

Well, I don't want to get stung by one, I hear it's pretty painful... but otherwise, they are way cool!

I want a pleco so badly but I only have a ten gallon tank and a pleco would die of stunned growth and I am already stocked and I wanted a bamboo shrimp.
