True Masudai Hogfish (SUPERMALE)
(Bodianus masudai)


Notes:
The story behind this fish is one rather worth telling. Originally, this fish was collected as a juvenile and sent to Japan. It landed at the world famous Blue Harbor, where it was sold to a collector in Japan. It resided in a mesophotic biotope tank from 2017 until early 2021. Eventually the tank was taken down and the fish from that display made their way back to Blue Harbor. When we got word of these fish, we had to have them! We reserved them for a shipment that came to us in late April 2021. Since then, this fish has resided in Elliot's(the owner of Marine Collectors) personal collection of deepwater fish and has been one of the most spectacular fish we've seen. While we are sad to see him go, we are sure that this fish will excite his new owner as much as he did us when he first arrived!
