Minute filefish

Does anybody know where I could get a minute filefish? I'm not sure what the scientific name is.... R. Minutus maybe

Darn, I really like them because I think they look cool even when they get older. I've been keeping an eye out in liveaquaria's diver's den but I havent seen one there either... Hmmm

i don't recall a slender filefish, but mostly they offer the green filefish some call the "aptasia eating filefish" (acreichthys tomentosus). i also see what is called a "fan bellied file" - monacanthus chinensis
neither of which stop at 3".
