Deep Water fish in Aquarium

You may have seen mollies and guppies countless times at your local fish store or pet shop but once you’ve been keeping tanks for a long time, you might reach out for something more exotic. Some so called “rare” fish that you may see for sale may cost fifty to one hundred dollars but if you’ve got the coin, there’s fish in the sea that cost beaucoup bucks.

Before telling you about the rarest of the rare aquarium fish, keep in mind that these fish are not rare in the wild, but they are very hard to come by. Some live far, far away. Some live very, very deep. Some live far, far away and very, very deep. In any case, here are the five rarest and most coveted fish for marine (saltwater) aquariums.

Candy Basslet

#5 The candy basslet is a beautiful yellow and blue fish from the Caribbean. It is found all over but they are mostly collected from Curacao.belonoperca-pylei

Dr. Seuss Fish

#4 The Dr. Seuss Fish is so named for its wild color pattern, strange body and equally bizarre looking face. Like our number five, the Dr. Seuss Fish is a basslet which lives at pretty decent depths of Palau and the Marshall Islands. These are also easy to keep and although there’s been a little bit of collection of this fish in recent past, we’re still talking around a dozen specimens carefully brought up from the depths each year.

Neptune Grouper

#3 The Neptune Grouper is so rare that it is barely known about in the aquarium world at all. This deepwater denizen is a staple food fish in Japan and East Asia but it is almost never seen alive in an aquarium. The Neptune Grouper lives so deep that when they are fished for food they are brought up quickly, and they die from decompression. Only a handful of live juveniles have been found and collected in water shallow enough that they make suitable aquarium inhabitants.


Goldfish in my pond exhibit STRANGE behavior

2003-03-10 21:40:59 by thoughts-welcome

About a year and a half ago I set up a pond in my yard. I did a lot of research and made the sides of the pond very steep and it's 3.5 feet deep, and there are large rocks surrounding it. All of these factors have been great for my pond. The plants grow well, the water stays clear, the "critters" can't wade or disturb my pond at night...these things used to happen when I had a shallow pond many years ago.
A year or so ago I went to the local aquarium shop and bought three bags of "feeder fish" goldfish. (8 per bag for $1)
9 Survived and GREW pretty big and had lived happily for a year!
About a month ago they all disappeared
