Awesome fish! Wish they weren't so expensive. I find myself thinking how many frags I could have instead of just one fish !

Most fish can live for 15-18 years.

For this kinda guy in captivity? That'd be sweet! I'd thought they only survived a couple years

I read they had a short lifespan of 2-3 years. Maybe someone has a different experience?

They are a little pricey, but after i saw one in a fellow reefers tank.. Had to have one.. Awesome, courageous fish with a great personality...

As far as life expectancy goes i have read that they are using a lot safer collection practices as of late , that and good tank maintenance & varied diet.. Reefers are keeping these fish longer term...
