What is a Pantodon Buchholzi? I saw it in your photo gallery under other species. It looked like a betta but I am not sure that's why I am asking. It is very beautiful. Is it possible you can tell me about this type a little bit more and where I can find one.

Pantodon Buchholzi is commonly known as an african butterflyfish and is not a Betta. They belong to their own genus. African butterfly fish are surface dwelling predatory fish that can be found in fish stores from time to time. The species is not that rare and you you should be able to find it if you look around.
