    A Candy Basslet
    Pretty amazing, not sure about the other one but how much more or less does the real deal go for?

    @Lord_Blackadder answered in my "wrongly posted" thread as follow:

    "Neither are candy basslets (L. carmabi). The left one is Liopropoma swalesi and the right is Liopropoma collettei."

    and YES i concure it is Liopropoma swalesi and the right is Liopropoma collettei

    Not totally "wrongly posted"
    The L. Swalesi is also sometimes commonly called the Pacific Candy Basslet, which is probably what the supplier sold to you as a Candy Basslet
