Here he is flashing. Really hard to get a good pic of him cause he's quick. Very very active swimmer though. The pic does no justice on the colors of this Guy.

That flashing tile fish was unreal, that is An expensive critter but I think that's the one. I'll have to do more research on them but very cool.

There are other species of tilefish but from what I've read only the Hoplolatilus chlupatyi flashes. This is the "flashing" tile fish. They sound like really interesting fish and I'm contemplating trying to get a pair.

They aren't on live aqaria. Blue zoo has then for like 150. They are so awesome never seen one til I heard about them on this thread. Min tank size is 70 gallons. I only got a 35 so that's out for me. Maybe ill have one some day when I get a bigger tank. They are quite the show!
