    Additional Information & Description

    Long one of my favorite fish, I acquired this from a fellow reefer who was shutting down his system. He had the fish in his system for close to 8 years, I had it in my 24G AquaPod for nearly 2 more years... unfortunately, this fish passed away in early June, 2012.
