    I wouldn't buy a single fish, since I couldn't house what I really wanted. Soooo I would buy the California Academy of Sciences. :tongue:

    I would once again get my two favorite fish, Sohal Surgeonfish and Queen Angel. The ones I had in the early 90's were both over 12" when I gave them to a LFS for their large display tank. Got both as juvies.

    They can breed them already. A super long larva stage makes them not really reasonable for commercial sale though. WHAT IS THAT WRASSE?!?!?!

    First issue is finding it, second issue is the assumed price but I want A SOLID black Volitan Lion. I've seen pictures of some that are very close but never a solid black one.

    By far my dream fish.

    Which one Alex? The male Anampses femininus? While everyone is drooling over them, the thing is they're only that stunning when flashing or stressed. In "normal" mode, the females are much nicer.

    How a male normally looks:

    Kevin Kohen also has a nice example of normal v. flashing on his page, about half way down, here:

    Perhaps so, but they seem rare enough that I would feel bad about keeping them if I couldn't breed them.

    I would definitely get a gem tang and a pair of designer clowns, not sure what kind.
