    I quite like guppies. Very colourful, neons too, but I like say harlequins most of all. When the light catches them just right they are quite beautiful.

    If we are talking eating fish I always liked salmon most of all.

    I never used to name them to be honest.

    Maybe if they came to the table with the head intact perhaps.

    Think I once had a prawn called Simon.

    not that keen on the Gurnard - lovely colours, but spikey little bastards that always get in the way when trying to catch mackerel

    I ate a clown fish once. Didn’t like it though, it tasted funny.

    I ate a parrot fish once. Didn’t like it though, it kept repeating on me.

    I’ll be here all week.

    Love all types, my go-to is a bit of battered cod, swordfish done on a charcoal grill is something else though, can be got pretty much anywhere on the med, costs next to nothing and usually caught that day too. Amazing!

    Cod in crispy batter, not the rubbery, reheated or undercooked kind they usually serve around here. :emoji_angry:

    If we're talking eating fish, I had a tuna steak the other week and it was really nice, better than out of a tin ;)

    We had barracuda at a BBQ on holiday. Simply cooked in foil with lime juice. It was really delicious.
