    The $30,000 fish? I remember seeing that in the news.

    Yeup, same fish. There was a lot of stress over it. People at the aquarium may not have been the smartest in their handling of that guy. I know, I got to deal with the mess. No matter the price tag you put on a fish you can usually treat them in the same way. What nearly got us was people thinking it needed extra everything. Which got rather frustrating, but he's alive and happy now on exhibit.

    I actually saw one at MACNA, last weekend. Granted, it was plastic and tied to a string but hey, I'll take what I can get. You folks should put an additional webcam on that tank, so the world can watch your peppermint angelfish

    As for the tanks at MACNA:

    Knew nearly all these fish by name, I have never seen or heard of a peppermint Angel fish, I don't feel so bad now I've read those last few lines, I like the Pygmy flame angel

    Stumbled on this on Youtube and after laughing hysterically, decided it needed to be shared with the rest of the community. You know, in case any of us run into any cheeky octopi...

    Wow, what a cool thread. Shall we try to resurrect it??
    Here's some fin-spiration. I'm usually more inspired by a fish's fins than his colors.
    Gafftopsaid Catfish:

    Queen Snapper:

    Butterfly Koi:

    Wouldn't it though? I'm not usually a pink lover, but that bright color on the Queen snapper is beautiful.

    I think that butterfly koi has stolen my heart in terms of tails.

    How about this fish swimming at 27,000 feet underwater? Its movement is simply mesmerizing.

    That is so beautiful! Mesmerizing, indeed!

    (I want those fins and now I have to go design myself a new tail!)

    Pretty fantastic. The fins are definitely cool.

    It was so graceful...up until 1:41 when it face-planted into the ocean floor. Hope none of the other fish saw that...
    Interesting (if not overly practical) fins: the juvenile spotted drum:
