Deep Water Fish of the Pacific

This deep water undescribed Chromis species is a lesser known fish that has been living in the shadows of the deep, as well as the recent haul of Peppermint angels. The recent peppermint collection has created much buzz around the twilight zone fish found in the Southern Pacific, but sadly the attention remains focused on the barbershop pole angelfish. We recently had a chance to obtain one of these dazzling little Chromis and boy is it spectacular!

Found in around 300ft of water, this cyan colored Chromis has only started appearing around last year, right around the time where peppermints and narcosis angels were being collected. It’s beautiful cyan color can only be appreciated in a very dim tank, and the fish will display a pale whitish coloration if the lights get too bright.Chromis sp aquarium lights.

In the Moorea deep dive video above, it can be seen swimming around the 3.20 mark. We wait anxiously as this fish gets described, but until then, it is only available in small numbers from Rufus Kimura and Koji Wada of BlueHarbor. This fish is also featured in Digiman’s rare fish reef tank. A big thank you to Mr. Kimura and Koji Wada for this Chromis.


I like to fish too

I feel pretty lucky to have been raised as a sailor's daughter. I have memories of crabbing in the Pacific ocean with my dad, docking and meeting my mom in the parking lot. She'd been waiting with the camper and boat trailer... and had a large pot of boiling water waiting for our crabby friends. There's nothing like that kind of freshness.
And the deep sea fishing- if you ever have the chance to go, I highly recommend it! (Along our coast, you can join a 6 hour charter trip for under $100 and come home with a load of fish!).
Oh the memories! +5 for you!
