    Really nice, they sort of remind me of coelacanths :), strange association, but whatever floats my boat.

    Wow he's so big already. Time flies. Congratz on raising a beautiful, healthy fishy ;) When I turn off my tank light and let the sunlight shine on them, their color is just amazing. Like a very shiny shimmery blue/sea green. I will upload some new pics.

    Yes these fish are extremely beautiful, I am considering buying eggs online so that I can breed them, shipping the eggs can get a bit pricy though. I have sourced the exact co-ordinates, the names of the 3 people who collected this fish and the general date of the collection trip for these fish, its so interesting how unique they are!

    Is this an annual species?
