Anyone ever keep a pair of these? I'm getting a pair (finally!!) and pretty excited about it. Pretty rare from what I've read.

Kool. How did you find them.

They live in the display at the LFS. I've been after them for a year, offering obscene amounts of money for them. Now that the store is shutting down, I finally get them :) Lucky too, one jumped yesterday and one of the staff saw it and got her back in the tank. I might need a screen afterall.

Really cool watching them swim together, I think they'll make a great addition to the tank.

Just added these guys to my QT tank. One went into a crevice to hide, the other went exploring. Once he figured his mate was missing, he searched her out and snuggled into the same crevice. They're both sitting in there side by side. What a cute couple.

My understanding is it's really tough to pair them up. You're actually the first other pair I've heard of! We tried for over a year to build another pair at the LFS, no luck

I guess I lucked out. I had one and then last winter I bought some fish from another reefer who was shutting his tank down. I added it to my display and it got chased around for about 2 weeks or so and then one day they just stopped fighting and seemed to paired up. They are now pretty much inseparable and get along great.
