The five stripe hogfish, Bodianus paraleucosticticus, is an amazing and rare hogfish which very rarely graces American soil. Recently, Cairns Marine out of Australia has been making more regular excursions to the Coral Sea to get exotic reef fish such as the five-striped hogfish and the yet to be described “Cirrhilabrus squirei“.
Luckily for us, Sea Dwelling Creatures as succeeded in bringing a five stripe hogfish a whole lot closer because SDC has landed a good looking medium size specimen which has amazing potential to turn into the delicately colored and patterned beauty pictured above. Check out SDC flaunt a video of their one and only specimen after the break.
