Bodianus sanguineus lands in the Heartland

Nebraska Aquatic Supply in Omaha has received shipment of two of the rarest hogfish/wrasses in our hobby, the Hawaiian deepwater endemic Bodianus sanguineus.  This species is virtually unobtainable, and the vast majority collected are destined for Asia, so it is surprisingly to see not one but two specimens appear in the United States … and Nebraska of all places!  The asking price?  $4,500 each.
