    Wow that is a really neat little fish.
    Care level on that one is quite a bit, of course all the coolest fish are either super expensive or super difficult.
    Way to advance for me maybe in about 5 years...

    There is some cool videos of them on You tube...

    I actually have one of these little guys... I tried several in the past, but never could get them to live more than six months to a year. I don't know what it is about this guy, but he is a trooper and an awesome fish! I love the way they clean... I just wish I knew the exact trick to keeping them. I don't do anything special to keep the one I have, just make sure he is eating, and I dose my tanks pretty heavily, so maybe that helps. I know they feed on the mucus layer of other fish, so maybe he is doing good because they are doing good to?

    Anyway, sweet fish!
