A healthy - and interested - adult jack Dempsey ("Cichlasoma" octofasciatum). These fish get fairly large and can be quite aggressive, but they also will interact with their owners (and that can be very rewarding).

"I just wanted to give you feedback that I am grateful for the information and practical advice offered freely by you on this web site. You just prevented me from adding additional fish after only a few days of cycling. I have cared for fish of all types since I was in second grade and have had tanks ranging from 10 to 55 gallons. However, I never knew the damage that can be done to fish in the first 5 weeks!! Thanks again."
