Very cool David.
You rock! I appreciate our conversation, and you have another email.
They do have a very extensive collection of fishes in bottles
But they don't have it in their collection :lol:
Don't worry, different department and Matt surely wouldn't allow it to get stuck in a jar!
Oh! Oh! I demand some decent non-bigfoot pix when you get a chance!
Maybe Rich can shoot us some, he's a great photographer and he works at CAS as well
Very cool. I'm glad this all worked out.
FWIW, Tong's is great shop. I used to spent lots of time and money there when I lived in the OC.
I think we are coming down next month. I'm no Eric or Art, but if I come down, I will bring the Nikon
Luckily, I moved out of OC before I got too involved in reefing!
I blame Steve at Lucky Ocean, I was perfectly content with Fish, Snails, Crabs and fake rocks, but he just had to give me a few of his "beat up"corals he couldn't sell....
Not sure what's up with that link, I know we have way more specimens than that link shows. We have like 3 coelocanths, so I doubt we only have 5 angelfish!
I can pretty much guarantee this fish WILL end up in a jar, but at some point far in the future after it has lived a long healthy life here in a display tank.
I'll definitely post pics here when we get the chance.
I'm glad this all worked out for the best. Thank you Trey and David for supporting the Academy, you just got yourselves a ton of karma points!
Oh, the entire camera rig will be at work the day this comes in, don't you guys worry.
I'm curious... is a behind-the-scenes tour of the Academy of Sciences available for the two SDMAS members who discovered this rare fish?
Absolutely. My email is posted earlier in the thread if you would like to contact me.
I'd really like to hear more about how Tong's acquired this fish too. I will try and get more info tomorrow.
Cool! I'm going to be on the lookout for rare fish and let you know, so that I can qualify for a special tour of the CAS! Of course, the other way to qualify would be to volunteer every week, like Arnold.
Super cool. Rich snapped this photo just 10 minutes out of the bag...and it did eat the shrimp.
Many thanks to all involved for getting this fish here. We'll update with more photos when it goes on display after a 30 day QT period.
Wow, that is a sweet fish.
You may have missed it but both Rich and Matt have offered BAR members behind the scenes tour numerous times. I suspect if you ask, they'll do it
Is it the species you thought it was? Can you give us some more info on it?
really cool. can I come in with my whole camera rig and take a few pictures?
