    I am looking for a small school (4-5) of Knight fish (Cleidopus gloriamaris). If any of you come across them on your suppliers list please contact me. :thumbup:

    Yep, see em here occasionally. Sometimes in shallow water, but always in deep holes unless you're looking at night. Slow feeders and need low lighting.

    Yup i have seen them on the Shoal as well. Live deep in the caves and you need a torch to see them.
    But they are so scarce in our waters i would rather they remain where they are and i get imported ones from an area they are in abundance.

    You'll probably pay a fortune. Have seen them for sale for $400-500. They're actually quite common in most subtropical areas in their range (including SA), just nocturnal so hardly anyone sees or collects them, hence the price tag.
