It changes from day to day for me. Whatever mbuna that catches my fancy on any particular day is my favorite. But it's always mbuna.
Don't get mad if we criticize your stocking list. It's just because we like your fish more than you apparently do.

Still didn't say what kind...
Lobster from Jap steak house is better than any fish I've had..

But for the aquarium..
In my African tank: Neolamprologus Cylindricus
He reminds me of the Nintendo game "Spy vs. Spy".. Always sneaking around on, under and through the rocks with his Zorro looking mask over his eyes

In my CA tank: a tie between my HRP and T. Pasionis
T. Pasionis is coloring up and the anticipation is like waiting for Christmas on the EVE
HRP is a combination of my favorite colors

My Indonesian tiger. He has such a personality and always cheers me up. Can't even stay mad when he decides that all tankmates are now on his menu.

That tiger fish is really cool looking.. just looked it up on google. Looks like a Freshwater version of a Panther Grouper... from the sounds of it, they eat alike too

Almost any crenicichla (pike) but my favorite would be crenicichla marmorata 'rio trombeta'. Almost impossible to find as they don't get exported from Brasil much.

Freshwater: DWARF CICHLIDS!!!

Saltwater: tie between emperor angelfish and Clown trigger :P
Dwarf cichlids: more personality per inch than just about any other animal you'll ever have as a pet

Although there are too many amazing cichlids out there to really narrow it down by much, and there are still many I have not kept, I always seem to come back to Jack Dempsey's and Convicts.

Favorite fish.. probably any kind of polypterus. I love everything about them! They are so addicting, and I want/need MOAAAAR!!

My favorite of the polys would be the Delhezi, my dream one is an Ornate. Gorgeous fish and they have neat personality too.
