    potter x fisheri angelfish

    Just over 10 days ago, the third documented Centropyge fisheri x Centropyge potteri hybrid was collected by Alika Garcia, a diver on Oahu, Hawaii, at apprximately 75′ on the south side of Oahu. This stunning hybrid was promptly sent to wholesaler Tropical Fish Emporium where it has been made available to the retail world.

    The rarity of this Fisher’s x Potters hybrid angelfish has not been lost on Hawaii’s diver community. With all of the diving, collecting, and general exploration of Hawaii’s relatively shallow waters, this is just the third we humans know of. No word where this fish ended up–we hope it finds its way into a safe and happy home.

      Of course, the only truly “happy home” that any reef fish can have is its natural habitat.   It is horrific that anyone would choose to take this–or any–reef fish from its home, contributing the destruction of the reef habitats.
