    Liopropoma Heaven | Live Aquaria’s Diver’s Den

    Truly a site to be seen, and I am sure numerous collectors and drooling over this right now. Live Aquaria’s Diver’s Den currently has one incredible line up of Liopropoma Basslet’s I have seen.

    Truly a site to be seen, and I am sure numerous collectors and drooling over this right now. Live Aquaria’s Diver’s Den currently has one incredible line up of Liopropoma Basslet’s I have seen. I would love to drive up to Rhinelander just to see all these fish in one spot.

    The first fish Liopropoma carmabi is one of the most beautiful and captivating fish, and if you look to the right there is one more! $900 is not cheap, but I would not be surprised if these sell quick. It’s supply and demand. 

    Not to be ignored on the upper right is the very rare Liopropoma latifasciatum. Add in the soon to be identified Sunset Basslet, Liopropoma collettei and Liopropoma multilineatum and you have one beautiful basslet collection. Rarely available, and highly sought after this group of fish will make quite a stir in US fish circles.

    Kevin Kohen has some other beauties that will be on Diver’s Den soon, including The Wrought Iron Butterflyfish (Chaetodon daeldama). Two big thumbs up to Kevin and Live Aquaria for offering some of the healthiest and most sought after livestock around.

      The latifasciatus is already gone. Wonder if we’ll ever see this species again or it might do like the swalesi and start becoming a more frequent import.

      I almost click to buy them because they were cheap compared to the price in Japan. =)
