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).

"THANKS for having such a GREAT web site for fish owners! I did a lot of web-research and yours was the only one that was REALLY clear, in-depth yet concise, informative and helpful. You are doing a GREAT service to hobbyists AND their finny-friends alike!"
