    Great fish , well done i know you searched high and very low(deep) for one ;)
    Certainly a fat one now you have to keep him like that
    He may be one of the only one's i know of in captivity currently at least in private aquariums(last pic of one i saw was in a japanese in 2006 not sure if it is still alive), also i dont think ushaka has one.

    We need lots of pics now!!
