Genicanthus angelfish hybrids are enough, to discover one which is a mix of G. takeuchi is truly a once in a lifetime find. We’d be happy to just see a full blooded alive in our life time, in the U.S. and collected with full documentation. The specimen in the pictures was found swimming at great depths of Japan’s Ogasawara Islands which is a marine park that prohibits collection of marine life of any kind. The story starts on koba-tan where it is speculated that this specimen is a cross between “Tosayakko × Tosatamayakko Mizutamayakko”; anyone care to volunteer a translation? Personally this little Genicanthus takeuchi looks like it’s got some G. bellus G. semifasciatus in it. Thanks to Julian for tipping us off to this amazing hybrid Genicanthus takeuchi specimen.
