    BluezooAquatics is the one who got them in. They are crazy neat. They will occasionally appear on their site when you view it.

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    The lastest Lighting Clownfish was sold to Matt Pederson a breeder, for propagation. I would not want to be responsible for keeping this fish alive and breeding it to pass on the mutation.

    The villager that caught it was paid very well. Hopes are that collectors in the region will realize the value of keeping and preserving the fragil local flora and funa.

    I hope that I am still in this hobby when or if ever they become available.

    What's wrong with it? Everything is a result of a mutation. All maroons are mutated orange clowns from some point (or vice versa).

    I think they are cool.
