Yes...they are the rare ones! But alas, no I don't have them. They're just a motivator for me...something I really want later. They usually run about $80-90/fish. I do have a regular firefish, and then a purple firefish. Both are great. The purple has beautiful colors on it and it's alot cheaper than my dream fish...about $25-$35 at the LFS. Still high compared the the standard firefish but well worth it I think. It's funny, both of them live in the same little hole in some of my LR. they come out at feeding time and eat right next to each other, then go back down into thier little hole. I'm interested in later on doing a firefish species tank, with all the different ones...maybe a 20 gallon or so. I have a purple psuedochromiks in with them right now, and I have to stay there during feeding time to keep him away from the firefish 'cause he likes to chase them into their hole, and if I don't keep him away, they don't eat

the Xenia will grow super fast...with PC lighting, they like to be right up at the top. I harvest mine about every 2 months, and trade them into the LFS for credit.....I just leave a little of the pink skin on the LR when I cut them, and they grow right back!

Hi Jeff,

Yeah I think they are called Heinfrich or something like that, I love that firefish, it's so pretty, pinky color too , good movitator until you're able to buy :P I only got that standard one, I'm still thinking what to get for my third fish I don't know pseudochromis cause I heard they're pretty aggressive :P, trying to find mostly docile fish.

That's funny when you said your firefish behaved just like mine, so that's good to know, I was so afraid they will die cause mine sometimes hardly come out for food too, unless I give frozen mysis shrimp, darn high maintenance fish! :P

I wasn't planning on having corals, but I got those ricordea for $10, so I grab it and now my mushroom got little xenias for another $10 :P, I thought, why not? :P Thanks for the tips and info btw. I use T5HO lighting but I think it's not strong enough for them to grow fast. Still calculating the money needed to get better lighting
