 Jeez!!  
 The  Aro's  getting  a  lotta  unwanted  flak  here.  I  agree  that  it  has  been  hyped  up  a  bit.  
 But  IMO,  they're  not  that  bad,  definitely  not  as  bad  as  Parrot  Cichlids  who  top  my  list  which  looks  like  this  :
 
 1.  Parrot  Cichlids  (Just  hate  them  for  everything.  Fish  that  can't  close  their  mouth  should  have  never  been  made  in  the  1st  place!   Thumb Down  )
 2.  Almost  all  kinds  of  Gouramis  (except  Dwarf  gouramis)
 3.  Koi  (IMO  very  ugly  looking  fish)
 4.  Goldfish  (No  character  whatsoever  and  I'm  not  a  big  fan  of  their  appearance)
 5.  Mollies  (I  don't  like  them  out  of  pure  instinct  Razz)
 6.  Iridescent  Shark/Catfish  (Yuck!)

 1.  Albino  channel  catfish
 2.  Albino  plecs  (as  if  ordinary  plecs  weren't  bad  enough)
 3.  Marina  carp  (i  forget  what  their  real  name  is)
 4.  Goldies  in  general

 I  don't  like  any  big  fishes,  which  will  not  suit  for  the  hobby.
 
 Arrowana  -  definitely  not  a  hobbyist  fish.   Atleast,  this  fish  does  not  deserve  to  be  in  a  small  tank.
 Normal  Pleco  -  Ugly  fish  that  I've  seen
 Bubble  Eyed  gold  fish  -  Poor  specimen
 any  veil  tail  varieties  -  again,  a  poor  specimens
 Balloon  Molly  -  looks  weird
 Piranhas  -  Not  for  the  hobby
 Oscars  -  Not  worthy  to  keep  unless  we  can  give  them  enough  space.

 I  find  arowanas  fascinating  in  the  wild  but  hate  them  in  tanks.
 
 Most  large  fish  -  Plecos  and  catfish  in  particular  although  these  seem  to  be  the  hottest  item  in  the  hobby  based  on  what  I  see  at  my  LFS.
 
 Those  freshwater  Eels
 
 Goldfish/Koi
 
 Anything  that  takes  up  space  that  would  be  better  occupied  by  a  betta  but  thats  just  me  Chuckle
 
 Regards,
 Venkat

 Nanu,  what  are  the  gourami  that  are  found  in  the  lake  you  said?
 
 It's  amazing  how  a  beginner's  fish  like  Goldfish  becomes  so  hated  with  many.
 
 Again,  hating  gourami  is  a  surprise  for  me.  You  probably  haven't  seen  adult  Pearl  gourami  and  Licorice  gourami.  They  are  my  favourites.   Very Happy

 I  think  u  r  the  only  one  who  donot  like  Discus  the  King  of  Aquarium.
 There  is  nothing  to  hate  in  this  beautiful  fish  (a  lot  of  beatiful  starians  are  there.)  Sad   Crying or Very sad  
 Just  keep  a  pair  and  watch.  
 
 Ok  after  all  it  is  your  opinion.
