Mystery Species: A Beguiling Rarity
08 Apr, 2022
Here’s a fish and a lovely image that stopped traffic in the CORAL Editorial Offices, a rarity that author Scott W. Michael discusses in the next issue of the magazine (May/June 2022).
Native Range: Thailand, West Australia, east to New
Caledonia, north to Japan
Maximum Length: 2.9 in. (7.4 cm)
Notes: Beautiful and bold, but not commonly collected, this rarely seen species is actually infrequently captive-raised available from Oceans Reefs and Aquariums (ORA).
For a small fish, it has lots of attitude.
