Can’t stop admiring this angler

Besides the price, I only have a dry 10 gallon that I’m  saving for seahorses, another 10 gallon that needs to be resuscitated, and a 28 gallon aio community tank that has an aging clown fish, a black cardinal fish, 2 Molly miller blennies, a widowed clown goby, a young pair of file fish, and a brand new pair of peppermint shrimp.

Yes, I've been looking at that one too. Considering drilling and plumbing a small tank into my larger for it...

I have seen many and owned a few but I’ve never seen one like it. Q is, is he going to keep that pattern? If it is a yes, it might be worth the $.

Seems to be the type that keep the pattern even when matured.

Really tiny too, max size is 3.5"?

 

Maybe I should pull the trigger. Wonder how long it will live for. Not sure if I want to dump it and the LiveAquaria water straight into my tank though. From what I've read, anglers should not be exposed to air. I guess I could QT and slowly dilute out the LiveAquaria water. Also not sure if the little guy will do well with the usual medications.

If you're serious about it, I would email your Qs and concerns to LiveA. Probably a better source of information than anyone  on here.

Pretty sure he would eat some of those fish

I just bought this little guy from LiveAquaria. He was still there after all this time. I admired him for over a month and finally pulled the plug. Don’t know if it’s a he or she but it’s just the coolest looking I’ve seen in a long time.

I'm impressed it was available for so long. I think it's a good sign that it was still alive at LA. That means it's eating at least 😃 Good luck, please post photos!

Agreed, I’m glad someone got him. I felt bad he was there for so long

But apparently still alive, so I'm guessing he was doing pretty good to be honest.

when he gets big enough, the angler would prolly eat everything in that tank.
