Masked angelfish,Chaetodontoplus Ballinae, Nahackys, and Kingi are all rare. Depends on what you like personally

Rare indeed but not very colorful compared to the others. Again it's all about people's personal preference

I don't need a pair nor did I say I was buying this one it is just that as a pair these fish are even more fun to watch because of the way they swim and behave together

Tahiti lemon on DD today. I'm tempted every time until I remember what a ba$tard the last one I had was. Too bad; stunning fish.

Reef compatibility says "with caution"

That mouth looks tiny. Anyone know what's up?

I've seen 3 of those dr. Seuss fish in person- 1 at DD during a tour in WI and two at a shop in San Diego. Crazy fish, but even more crazy is the price tag.

Beautiful fish, it's a shame they aren't very smart when it comes to eating prepared foods. How is the one Drew got from Rufus doing?

They are ambush predators that will eat shrimp so if you get hawkfish you can't have any shrimp

I purchased a pair of Colclough's Sharks off DD about 5 years ago. They were sold as a different species, but I was able to confirm their identity with help from the curator of the Australian Nation Fish collection at CSIRO. It is reported there are less than 20 specimens recorded.
