Mine would have to be my vampire tetras, while they are very destructive to my tanks ornaments they find a way to look good doing it lol

Mines gotta be a draw between my betta Marmaduke and my polkadot botias - they're so cool the way they swim and dart around the tank ;D

I think all fish are beautiful but I am very partial to Bettas! The variety of colors and flowing tails are mesmerizing and they have such personality! If I could afford it my place would be filled with tanks of Bettas of every color.

That is really a tough question.  All fish are beautiful in their own way!  I love my yo yo's and how their patterns look:

I also love my LDA33 pleco!:

This is not my fish, but one that was for sale.  If I had the committment, I would have a tank full of these:

I would have to say that although I try not to have favorites, my little Alexander is my prettiest fish. He is truly beautiful. He is unusual and I am so proud of his unusual nature and his sweetness. He has the most darling personality and is such a lover. He is so cute and does the most darling things. It makes him not only pretty but the most lovely in disposition that I have.

my other half says the best looking fish we have at the mo are our four dwarf puffers they are stunning fish but don't half nip at the others (we were misssold them they came with verry little info) we were told they would be fine for a community tank (a big no no but so far they are doing great)

Hmmmmm....This is a toughy. To me, all of my fish a beautiful, it's very difficult to say which one is the best looking....but, after careful consideration, I think I'm going to have to say my Synodontis Brichardi.

I love his markings, the way he moves and the way he gets all excited and flashy when it's feeding time....He hides a lot during the day time and so it's always a joy to see him swimming about in the evening.

Well, I am not one to care much about how a fish looks as long as they have personality! Anyway, right now I am low on fish since I just lost a binch to TB--the only fish I have to choose between are Otos and Pygmy Cories. I'm not sure I'd call either pretty, just adorable... ;D The prettiest fish I've HAD though was probably my Guppy Corona. She looked more like a shorter-finned pet store male Guppy than a female. She was just gorgeous, with a body that faded from tan to dark grey, and a bright yellow to orangish tail with black streaks, and a silver blue dorsal fin. She had a personality to match--she ruled the tank and was fearless and a show-off as well as a drama queen. I still miss her--she was the first fish I lost to TB.

yeah, pescine (fish) tuberculosis...terrible, terrible disease. Everyone who keeps fish needs to know how to identify it. Basically the infected fish suddenly gets sick for no apparent reason and slowly wastes away until they die. :'( It is horrible... Also it is possible for humans to get it from fish, but it will only take the form of a bad skin infection and contracting it is highly unlikely. Still you need to be really careful when handling fish with possible TB. This disease is fortunately rare, but when it does strike it can be hard to diagnose because it resembles other diseases. Infected fish show symptoms of finrot and other diseases. Unfortunately there is no cure that I know of.
Now I am not trying to scare everyone--the chances of your fish getting TB are really low and for you to get infected from them almost never happens--however everyone with fish needs to know about it in case their fish get it.
I just lost six fish to TB over the past several months...there are two survivors left, pray they won't also come down with TB...
That's the other weird thing about TB, it can take many months before fish start showing symptoms.
