    Furbz, more likely the Blue eyed Kole Tang? Ctenochaetus binotatus

    Albino though

    In the Us and china...the market for rare fish is phenomenal.

    To see something diff than just your normal kole tang is very exciting to me... im beginning to love all these rare fish

    Lanz, very tempted, but I'd rather get 2 Achilles Tangs in from you, and once all is sorted (My stock you need to bring in), we can always ask your supplier for another.
    I know I'm gonna kick my own butt in the end for not taking it, but I think I must rather spend the money on Coral for now.
    Btw, I'll try and finish the list before Friday- Oh, and send me the pics of the nennies (and make sure I can get the same Montis as Furbz, or else I need to buy his tank...lol)

    Well to be honest with you I don't think it is an albino but rather a leucistic fish as it still has its eye pigment. Albino's lack all colour and have red eyes. I stand to be corrected though.
