Tanaka's pygmy wrasse is easily my favorite mini-fish. They only get 2" long, and have tons of personality. Really feel like he is "watching you back", has the look of intelligence in his eyes. I know that's probably too anthropomorphic. But I really like the little guy.
He is camera shy, but here's a quick snap

Freshwater, I have enjoyed dwarf puffers in the past, they seem to have a similar amount of "personality". Also have really liked some apisotgramma I have kept.

I am a huge fan of black skirt tetras, aggressive little buggers and therefore made great tank mates for gars/pbass ect when I was trying to convert to pellets, "monkey see monkey do"
Tankmates to gar/pbass lol...I think we have 2 differ views on tankmates

Monkey see monkey eat.

Those bettas are spendy. I just saw a pair for sale a little while back. $224.99. Ouch. Very cool, but dang.
