    A handful of special fish have been collected over summer, but this tiny Orange Margined Butterflyfish (Prognathodes basabei) takes the adorable prize. Collected in the deep waters of Hawaii, this little one was destined for Japan upon entering Rufus Kimura’s net. To no surprise it is headed to Koji Wada’s Blue Harbor in Osaka.

    Over two years ago, Kimura made a splash with rare fish enthusiasts with the commercial availability of Prognathodes basabei. As was true then, their appearances in captivity are extremely rare due to the extreme depth at which they are found and the accordingly high price tag. Like many sought after species, the Basabei commands an inverted pricing structure–meaning smaller specimens command higher prices than their larger brethren.

      Need a bathtub that auto-fills, auto-cleans, and even adds essential oils at timed intervals? Want no more – the Electronic Tub-E is here. While the name is best suited to something that automatically feeds you Big Macs, the tub itself is a thing of ultra-sleek techno design love. To enter the tub? Climb not an unwieldy ladder, cher billionaire… ascend lovely stairs of perforated steel.

      This faucet gives off a very artistic and futuristic feel because of the clean lines and shiny metal. The Kohler Karbon Articulating Faucet allows a wide range of movement and flexibility and would complement kitchens with stainless steel appliances to match.
