    I've been through 2 of them over the years. Locally bought, neither one ever made it out of quarantine. Expensive lesson. A captive bred one might be the answer, these fish come from deep waters, if they are not acclimated correct when collected from the divers, they usually have bladder issues. ( which is what both of mine had) like all new fish, make sure to try and purchase a healthy one.

    I'll buy one that's doing well in a hobbyists tank when I'm ready.

    Borbs? They look cute when small and young. After they grow, just not as nice imo.
