Mine would either be a gold nugget, Green phantom or a snowball. Even though a lot of people love them, I'm not mad about zebras :/

Golden Nugget is my favorite one. I've also had a Snowball and Royal and the Golden Nugget looks nicer to me. Blue/Green Phantoms are ok but sometimes their colors don't pop enough especially if you have a background or decorations that are too similar to their colors. I like the Golden Nugget because it's really distinctive and cool to see gold spots and a gold stripe on the top fin on a black base pleco like that.

Adonis, L200, Queen Arabesque L260, L250, Blue Panaque. Actually - I love them all and these are just the first to come to mind. I can spend days on Planetcatfish's Cat-e-log just drooling.

L046 is kinda overrated, having the solid true black and white is cool but other than that it's not too cool when you never see them. I've owned a group of 6 and don't think I ever saw them.
L134 kinda gives the L046 a run for the money.

L025, L095 or other giants would be my fave, I like the high humped back and the pinecone scales.

07-10-2012, 7:20 PM
Albino adonis, Xantos, LDA105, L273, L25, L24, L282, L46, L14, L427, L600, and L114. I know it's a long list but I've invested in tanks and groups for breeding all of them I don't think I have to narrow it down further.

Sunshines are pretty attractive at all sizes, big royals (especially the L27 Thunder variety!) are really nice looking, and you can't really ignore the colour contrast of L46.

Prettiest has to be L14. However most awesome has to be LDA105.

For its looks the L397. For activity level I have to say the sail fin (or at least my sail fin). He is constantly moving around on the front wall enjoying the power head.

P. gibbiceps. In particular, the variant that has very strong contrast between the lines on the body and the dark shapes formed between them. I have only seen these variants (ok, it may not be a true variant; it could just be certain exceptional individuals) a few times over the years (since I saw my first one in 1984), but I find them to be stunning, especially when you factor in the huge dorsal. They also have a color edge along the dorsal. Here's a decent example - http://www.tropicalfishfinder.co.uk/dbimages/glyptoperichthys_gibbiceps_adult%281%29%281%29.jpg

might be a bit too common for most but I like my L83/L165 (Pterygoplichthys gibbiceps) nice high dorsal and good color.
