I ran across this fish @ reefhotspot.com, I have never seen one before and was wondering if anyone has one. If so please post some pics! If I was to have an predator tank this would be my showpiece. Beauty does come @ an price.

Here is mine. It's about 4" long and doesn't bother anyone in the tank so far.

I didn't realize you were putting it in a predator tank. This is a very shy fish and hides most of the time. It's in my reef and even though it will dominate over any fish in my tank it still likes to hide out in the caves until its feeding time. I'm not sure what it would do with other more aggressive fish.

That's a beautiful fish bobafett, how big do those guys get?

I'm guessing they get at least as big as a miniatus but in a fish tank it probably won't get bigger than 12". I saw one at a LFS that was about 10". They lose their yellow and become more dark orange as they get bigger.

I used to have one. He was a great fish and was bout 5 inches. I ended up selling him for $75. I get all my fish cheap so I just sell them for what I paid. O ya I had to sell him because he started to disturb the reef a bit. Started to mess with the Shrimp and would knock over coral every once in awhile and he just had to go. They are beautiful fish though.
