Michael,

We did in fact post a Prognathodes marcellae butterrflyfish yesterday in the Divers Den, which sold very quickly. I would imagine this is the fish you are inquiring about, and unfortunately this was the only specimen we have at this time.

I will keep trying to obtain some more of these rare deepwater Brazilian Butterflyfish and if successful, will condition and quarantine them so we can add them to the Divers Den in the future.

Thank you,
Kevin Kohen

Michael,
Apologize for the typo, you are correct the fish is endemic to the Tropical West African coast in the Atlantic Ocean.
