Don't expect to see this little guy at any lfs anytime soon... He cost a whopping 1.2 million yen or $10,645 USD.

No words. Thats the first time I seen that fish. Steve if you get your hands on that fish, you'd have a national attraction ;)

It is called peppermint angel. There is an online store which sells excotic fish which I send an inquiry before but never heard back from them.

I would think to acquire one you would need to go over sea and still then it's a pretty penny. I don't think anyone on RC has one, atleast in the USA.

Just think for $10k you could buy a large setup and stock it with some great fish and still have money left-over.

From an article marrone posted:

"The extremely rare C. boylei is seen here. Enjoy the photo, as they are almost as rare as the specimens themselves. Their collection and photography is difficult due to the depths of 300 feet or more that are required in order to find one."

Not only do they have to go that deep but also catch a little 3" fish at the same time. I'm sure there are people in areas around Japan that have one in their tanks.

could only imagine if someone could breed this fish and make a fortune out of this. Too nice to be in my tank though.. I wouldn't be able to sleep with a fish that expensive in my tank..
