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 thank you for your site and taking the time to answer my questions. I hadn't planned on having any fish and getting everything together for my daughter's Betta has been a bit stressful (for me and him both) but you've helped me out a lot. If we ever run into each other I owe you a beer at the least."
