Leishman,

Thank you for your post. The fish pictured is one Maldives Flashing Tilefish (Hoplolatilus chlupatyi). This specimen is able to rapidly flash different colors including pink, green, and blue. If we can be of further assistance, please feel free to let us know.

I remember the first time I saw those in person- price was not asked until fish was bagged!

Leishman,

Thank you for your post. We had two of the Maldives Flashing Tilefish (Hoplolatilus chlupatyi) purchased through Diver’s Den this month and these amazing specimens were both priced at $129.99.
