they are very rare do tend to demand a high price. A reasonable price would around $750.

wow! Imagine how much of a risk it was to capture, ship, and store this fish. Glad he made it alive and hopefully he can find a good home.

The supplier had them for months before selling them. It is really healthy and eating like a champ.

It looks like a bicolor mixed with an Atlantic Pygmy. Is this like an isolated strain of pygmy angel? Like all the animals in the galapagos.

Known only from remote Cocos-Keeling and Christmas Island in the eastern Indian Ocean, Centropyge joculator is seldom available to the US aquarium trade. Most specimens that are collected go to Japan, since logistics of getting them from their origin into the US are difficult and expensive. Although this species coloration resembles the Bicolor Angel Centropyge bicolor, joculator is most closely related to Centropyge hotumatua from Easter Island, another extremely rare fish that is next to impossible to obtain.

It's just a shame that he will most likely never be bought due to the high price. I hope you have some nice accomodations to keep the fish happy and healthy for the long term, although I'm sure you do. Good luck with it!
