    Ridiculous price. I wouldn't own another Maroon in this lifetime, or any other.

    I adore my maroons, but will never again try putting them in a community tank... They stressed both of my wrasses till death. I'm glad they seem to like the Midas Blenny and Mandarin. But over 5k on mean fish? No thanks.

    An article blue zoo put out said that these were the first five offspring. So I'm not sure if they were the only five that actually made it or if maybe they were the only five exhibiting the lightening pattern.


    Something that was written on another forum that I think most people aren't thinking about is that the people bidding on these five are most likely breeders looking to start their own lightening breeding lines. I don't know too many hobbyists that would actually spend that kind of money on a single clown.

    These 5 are the ones that had the Lightening markings, the others are considered Lightenings, but show completely different markings from what I read.

    The markings they have are the lightening markings, they definitely don't look as good as the original though. It may possibly change as they grow though.
