    Discussion in another thread got me thinking.....

    Assuming tank size and availability was not an issue.
    What would your Holy Grail fish be?

    Mine:
    Aba Knifefish
    Electric Eel
    Mbu Puffer
    Arapaima

    Would love a redtail cat... been in love with them since I first saw one as a little kid (it was bigger than me, but I don't think that's too difficult..)

    For me, it would be an amazon biotope with altum angels. Lots of driftwood and leaf litter, sand substrate, riparian foliage etc. It would have to be massive to get anywhere close to accurate though

    You did say if size was no issue :p I guess a fish the same size as me just makes it more exciting to me :lol:

    Have a few also.
    For freshwater it would have to be a large group of Geophagus, a flagtail and stingrays.
    Also a bunch of clown loachs but I have them already so does that even count

    For saltwater it would be a Naso tang, more specifically Naso Elegans and a foxface rabbit fish
