eh..if we're talking maroons, there's nothing like a gold stripe, but..did i say NO MAROONS?!?!
lol..i just dislike them because they get large, aggressive, and territorial. percs and the like stay small and don't add much to the bio load. plus, guests recognize them. you don't know how many times i was in front of the gym tank discussing/educating a member, and they are like "why don't you have a little nemo in there?". i'd then say, "i do have a nemo...look, there's suntan nemo...."

Plus I'm a Miami fan and my brother is a FSU fan, I'd never live it down having a maroon and yellow clown... Lol

yeah 2 have been found in the past 5 yrs, the first didnt make it off the boat the second was purchased by a guy from duluth, mn for 2500 bucks. There were higher offers but it was generally assumed he would have the highest chance of success for breeding, which he hasn't in fact it nearly died once because he went out of town for a weekend and the tank started to leak.... anyhow there is a blog you can follow along. It goes through like 2 yrs of stuff though so be prepared.

ha and i google image search and saw a lightening pic saying 3rd one found.

2500 is insane for a fish. there is a fish on liveaquaria that is more than that. pretty fish though.

the third one found was an april fools joke there was a third one found in 2010 and in 2011... but if you read the blog the guy who owns the fish falsified the 2011 one and shows before and after images of photoshopped fish.
