    What is the Most Beautiful Fish in your opinion? A lot of times fish don't look as nice on the picture as they do in reality. Let's give people ideas what to look for!!!
    *please include a small description of its color, and if it's reef safe.
    Here are my picks:
    LEMONPEEL ANGEL - beautiful yellow fish with blue highlights (it is a beauty!).
    *50/50 Reef Safe (could nip on some corals, and clams)
    BLUE SPOTTED PUFFER - orange with blue spots, it's one of the nicest puffer (in my opinion).
    *50/50 Reef Safe (will eat some of your inverts, and may nip at corals)
    FRIDMANI/ORCHID DOTTYBACK - beautiful bright violet color (doesn't lose it's color like Purple Pseudochromis).
    Reef Safe!
    What is your Most Beautiful Fish???

    These are in no order but they are my favorites.
    Queen Angel- beautiful fish with many colors all over it's body and pattern changes from juvi to adult.
    Banana Moray Eel- A yellow eel that has brown markings (looks like a banana) I don't like eels but I think this one is stunning.
    Blueface Angel- beautiful blue markings on the face with a yellow pattern on side
    My favorites change all the time. I have lately been looking into the Blueline Angel which is also very beautiful.
    Edit- The passer angel is also very beautiful with it's beautiful patterns and colors.

    I love campbells pics. We should all have to pick one fish from each family. I won't go into that but I love conpics, dragon morays, super male lineatus, scotts, rhomboids, potters, red coris. I think all fish are beautiful but these are the ones I have currently that I love.

    I'd have to say my banana wrasse, GORGEOUS.

    Picture doesn't do them justice, they have pink/orange on their face, simply beautiful.

    I like humu humu and queen triggers but aren't compatable with many fish.
    queen angel is also beautiful but you need a really big tank.
    Crosshatch is nice but pricey
    princess parrots are nice also but need a full coral diet.

    Are you talking about all fish or just aquarium fish?
    I'de have to say I love the flame angelfish
    It is a beatifull color of blazing oarange and red outlined with blue.
    Its a roll of the dice whether it is safe with reefs or not.

    In my opinion it's the pic I'm using as my avatar. It's just a dwarf fuzzy-eyed lionfish but it's the rare yellow colored ones that are beautiful. I've got a reddish orange one I'll post a pic. His names spike. Maybe not the most beautiful but I think a yellow version would be.
    Very pretty fish tho are those your fish or just pics?

    Queen Angel by far, IMO, is the most beautiful fish. REEF SAFE: Semi reef safe as a juvi. Not reef safe as an adult. Colors: ALL OF THEM! I wish I could have one in my reef.
