  1. To reduce big fish, letting go my watanabei pair. Kept for many months, eats everythinh, exceptional health. Male has very long tail (old photo, it's longer now). Selling at $200 for the pair, my bought price from coral farm. Male 6 inches Female 4.5 inches roughly. I will be overseas soon, so I will put the fish at iwarna. Collection can be done there, and just pay them. I will collect the money when I come back. Interested parties please PM me thanks!
  2. What I meant was that I receive many PMs asking things like, "is that lobo for sale" and other stuff not related to the sales. Please don't argue in this thread thanks. Andtsg, I don't know why you're making a big deal out of SEA. They accept donations such as these on a case to case basis. And if no one wants to buy my fish after a week I'll donate it there if they want it. So not sure why you're being so childish and ignoramus here. I guess the level of maturity in this forum is far underdeveloped as I had originally imagined. Such a shame really. Anyway fish pending collection. Thanks everybody
  3. Receive a lot of irrelevant messages and PMs. Please only contact if you are interested. I forgot some additional information. Fish is 3.5-4 inch Have been with me for a long time, so it's eating pellets and flake. But not frozen food. No ich. If no buyer after a week I will donate it to the curator of S.E.A aquarium. Thanks everyone.
  4. WTS Acanthurus polyzona from Mauritius. Kept for over a year. Bought price $500, selling $300. Please pm if interested thank you! Collection in the east, at Iwarna.
  5. peppermint angels have been talked about literally to the point of being over-exposed. in the past 2 years alone there have been more peppermints in the market than the entire history of the fish's existence. it has been blogged about and broadcasted to death, almost to the point of being mundane. even in SRC numerous photos and information have been posted. not just on peppermint, but on personatus and kingi. it's not 6 digit. never has been, never will be. google. it's your best friend.
  6. very nice individual. i love the soft anal and dorsal fin markings.
  7. what an unusual Goby! It looks like Gobiodon erythrospilus but that's just an educated guess. Its unusually yellow though.
  8. in Queenlands, the normal form is the model for Plagiotremus tapeinosoma, which has a colour form very similar to the hula fish.
  9. as someone who has been to live aquaria and have met kevin kohen many times, i can assure you live aquaria is not lacking in space.
  10. Dr. Chung also has in the same tank, - a juvenile captive bred personatus angelfish. However it is still very small and housed in a betta box, therefore i didn't take photos. - a single male Tosanoides flavofasciatus. Too shy and didn't allow me to take any nice photos to post. - a single Prognathodes "basabei". - another hybrid angelfish, this time between Pomacanthus maculosus and P. chrysurus. Very very shy, impossible to photograph. but very beautiful.
  11. Another very rare angelfish in Dr. Chung's collection. A hybrid this time, between Chaetodontoplus meredithi and C. conspicillatus. Hybrids in this genus are very rare. what makes this even more unusual is its small size, at slightly below 3 inches.
  12. "personatus" means mask, and both sexes of this angel has a prominent face mask. the females have a black mask while the males have it in yellow. This photo shows the male while it was chasing another fish in the tank, and when it's excited it turns from white to gun metal grey. the yellow mask is very clearly seen here.
  13. As an editor for reef builders, i'm very fortunate to be able to travel and meet many influential people in the industry. This weekend I visited Dr. Chung Wing Hung and took some photos of three amazing species. Dr. Chung if you're reading this, thanks again for the invite. Hope to see you again soon! With so much hype surrounding the captive breeding success of this species, let us not forget how truly magnificent the adult male is, and how it got its specific name of "personatus".
  14. It's Hime japonica. http://mitofish.aori.u-tokyo.ac.jp/species/detail.html?genus=Hime&species=japonica
  15. please do share with us your new publication. and finally we can put to rest this horrifying conundrum of pseudoplesiops vs lubbockichthys.
