we have a fish tank at work and the guy that looks after it just brought in a blue lobster (it is kinda an electric blue) its about 2 inches long and he says they are pretty common, but this is the first time i have ever heard of one... any fish lovers out there that can set me straight?

In the Philippines, we have a lot of blue lobster which is usually found in the deeper coral reefs where waves breaks enormously. And i am fond of this. I like eating lobster especially if it is deep fried and moistened with sugar. Oh, feel hungry! Thanks

I had heard of them, but never saw one until I was watching Dirty Jobs on The Discovery Channel. They were up in New England catching them. I thought they were really quite pretty.

I dont hope to sea a blue lobster because I live in a land locked country, so far way from the sea.
