    The last video was hit across the forums so here is part 2 from Koji Wada of Blue Harbor. This video shows the only known living Peppermint Angelfish (Paracentropyge boylei) feeding on dry pellet food. For those that missed it, you can find the first video here.

    This aquarium is kept at 69-71F and only illuminated by (2) 20w florescent “CFL” type spotlights to mimic the deepwater environment that Paracentropyge boylei inhabits.

    Some friends of ours recently went on an aquarium tour of sorts in Japan and saw this fish in person, I am told photos do not come close in accurately representing the beauty of this fish. I hope to see it with my own eyes in the future, but in the mean time these videos will have to do.
