Was in at Bayside Corals and they have a Claire's Fairy Wrasse. Sounds like it's the only one in Canada!

Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics, it looked pretty cool in person. Looked it up, sounds like it is unbelievably rare...

Wow. That is so cool.

I wish I could afford a $5k fish let alone a $30k fish!!!


Whoever buys this one, I hope they put up some picks here.

My thoughts too. You'd think a $5000 fish would look at least a little unique lol

Totally agree I like a nice fish but that's just boring

Unlike corals, expensive fish usually have more to do with depth of collection than anything else. Rare fish collectors buy them because they are rare -same like rare toy collectors or rare coin collectors.

Here's a better photo of the above fish:

It's a wrasse, so he has excited colors and normal colors. Normal colors are the first pics, and when he's excited he gets much more intense coloring. Once he's a super male he'll have a lot more red and yellow on his body all the time. He's a very docile wrasse, not aggressive at all. My client owned him, and is in the process of shutting down his tank.
