Any of beautiful butterflies that only feed on specific coral polyps and are impossible to keep, such as Chaetodon austriacus, larvatus, lunulatus, ornatissmus, meyeri, and baronessa.

For me it used to be The Dwarf Cuttlefish, sepia bandensis! Now I have those, so maybe the flaymboyant cuttlefish! They’re hard to keep though An epaulette shark would be awesome with the right tank, but I think a Coral Beauty is what I want right now! Every time we get one at work, it sells instantly! But soon!

A hulafish. ORA isn't shipping them to Canada, for some reason, so I'll just have to keep looking at videos.

Also: a captive-bred Royal Gramma for my RSM 250. I only have three fish in there! I'm saving space and being patient!
Not sure if they ship to Canada but I have been seeing the rwu captive bred royal grammas popping up more and more on la divers den lately. Probably anywhere around a handful a week or so.
Edit: might be every few weeks, they go quickly but starting to become more often they are available

They aren’t available anymore, they seem to go pretty quickly. Saw quite a few of the fish in this list on their right now. I like checking divers den even when I’m not shopping for fish, always something new and rare.

Not sure if I will end up doing a big tank downstairs but if I do it’s really tempting to keep an eye out for captive bred purple tangs. They always catch my eye on algae barn but never actually seen them available. Every time I start planning that build it’s adds up way too quickly without even getting into livestock so it will be on the back burner for a good while.

marine betta is another tempting one to try captive. Another one that catches my eye but I don’t see myself ever doing a big enough tank is the biota maculosis angelfish. Actually shocked biota marine bettas are in stock right now, have been out of stock for a long time.

Yellow Tang, Blond Naso and Blue Hippo. Had All three at once time, but the Blond Naso bullied the Yellow Tang to death. The Blond Naso went missing about 2 Months later and was never seen again.
I have a yellow & a blue in my RS260. Hoping to add a Naso when I move everyone over to the WB220.6.

I managed to pick one up a few months ago, and it's in my 40g cube now. They're lovely fish, but I think that my orchid dottybacks are even prettier.

What fish do you wish you could keep but you just can't. For me it has to be a midnight arothron puffer theres just something about them sadly can't keep one in any of my tanks too aggressive.

Emperor Angel. I have tried twice, on going through the change. And one Juvenile. Both just decided they didn’t want to live anymore.
