We are delighted to see that Fishguy extraordinaire Jim Stime of LA Fishguys has fulfilled our request for a full featured video featuring his captive raised Resplendent Pygmy Angelfish, Centropyge resplendens. The resplendent angelfish can only be found living in the waters of Ascencion Island, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. This extremely rare dwarf marine fish was once widely available in the aquarium trade for modest prices but they are now nearly absent in the hobby. In his video Jim further discusses the history of the Resplendent angelfish and he shares with us the details of how he came to aquire this ultimate rare fish.
