Most folks in this business know their goodies and it's bit wierd that the LFS, distributor, etc missed this being a rare specimen. There are probably more than a few commercial aquariums and researchers who would have been happy to pay good money for a blue ring. They also would have had the right permits......

very strange indeed.....
Blue rings are not as rare as you think you are, I commonly see that at the LA wholesalers, at least a few times a month.
