Wow, that's a very cool fish. Looks like it's doing well.

How does something like this with a super rare fish work? Does it have to go directly to you, a wholesaler, or an LFS in order to obtain it?

Hi Puff,

I agree, she does seem to be doing very well and is looking as curious as an angel should, I am looking forward to seeing her on Friday.

Hope you are well,

TK

Hi Mike,

Buying fish like these or even common fish direct from a diver or collector usually just entails a trip to the airport to pick them up. At the airport you go to their "cargo" facility to get them. Kind of a weird place as a lot of the stuff you see in there are either living animals being shipped like dogs, cats, birds, fish etc. or you see coffins. It is always exciting to pick-up fish but tbh, I don't look around too much around as it can be very depressing.
With stuff from B, I am lucky as his guy does the airport pick-up and I meet him at a fish store to get the fish. I am seeing him around 2 pm this Friday. Hopefully the traffic wont be too nightmarish and I should have her in a tank by 3:30 Friday afternoon. She ships from Manila tomorrow.
Will post some pics hopefully Friday.

Hope yours are all well,

TK

Very cool!

I'd love to see you get a Debellius Angel next! They're so pretty!
