I am quite fond of the Basslets ( Royal Gramma, Black Cap), but not one of the options. Also like the wrasse's.

I voted for angels, but I also love wrasses, and for FOWLR tanks I LOVE cowfish.

I love the oddness of Angler and Frogfishes. Cant wait to put one in my tank soon. They get my vote for the nano.

If I had to choose a favorite fish overall, It would be a deep sea viper fish., though no one has ever kept one in captivity.

Clowns all the way. Pair up easily, absolutely beautiful, fun to watch, hardy, easily hosts with anemone, not aggressive. I would recommend a clown to anyone and everyone.

Blennies! ! ! In my opinion, they have the most personality! Both the bicolor and the lawnmower. I havent had much experience with other types.

Clowns are a close second though

My vote is for the Six Line Wrasse (or wrasses in general).

The sixline in my tank is curious about everything, very active swimmer and quite social. Great fish !

I voted clown, but i also enjoy my Basslet, the Royal Gramma, a lot too.

PS: those votes for tangs, I hope, HOPE, are in large than nano tanks.

tangs need between 4-6 ft of swimming space to be ideally happy. 26 gallons is torture! (tang popo 5-0 fuzz woop woop po-lice)

Im surprised fairy/flasher wrasses werent listed. why is groupers up there? there is no such thing as a dwarf grouper for a nano! Most dwarf angels still need 30 gallons to be happy, tangs is a no brainer. The poll should be redone for next month :

ARG!! i hate clowns!@!!@!@! I work at a LFS and all i hear is "nemo nemo nemo!" the kids say it like they are robots, or are possessed with the pixar virus. its horrible, especially when customers ask "do you have dori? i have a 7 gallon 'curved' tank and i want to get a couple of doris. can i get a scarface too?" aaahhh!! just shoot me now.

I was going to vote for the best nano-reef fish the Morish Idol. Why was this one never listed? Clearly a mistake.
