While editing through half a terabyte of our video collection we stumbled across these three gems from the video archives: the Rainbow Cycloseris, a Juvenile Leather bass and some breeder Maxima clams. The Rainbow Cyclo is the same orange anf green striped specimen from a previous post, and also on one side of our flyer but the other specimens are fresh.
The uber cute black and white stripe grouper might seem like a real munchkin now but keep in mind that Dermatolepis dermatolepis grows very large, very quickly. This tank-busting fish is not so frequently seen in the hobby and understandably so but as groupers go, the leather bass is quite the looker even as it grows and loses it’s stripes.
The two breeder maxima clams really put the glory of Tahitian Maxima Clams in perspective. Previously these two 8″+ maximas would have been about as nice as clams get and don’t get us wrong, they are still very choice. However, the vibrance and diversity of colors of the Tridacna maxima being collected for us in Tuamotu are often so much nicer.
