    Ya I was actually reading up on them a little while back after seeing them in the guy who won TOTM in Reefkeeping magazine's tank.

    Extremely rare I believe and have read that they go for $800-$1000 when sold in the states. Any idea on the pricing for us?

    fish like that usually have exceptional care given to them for obvious reasons.. just awsome.. but scary at the same time..
