Announcement Concerning Fish


I'm constantly being asked ... Are You Selling Fish Anymore? 


Quick answer is - yes & no.  I will not be bringing in more until international flights are normalized.  The vast majority of the reef fish we keep are collected in the Indo Pacific area and need cargo flights to come into the US.  What used to be a 2 day flight is now 4 days & many are perishing from the stress.  Given the extreme mortality rate, super high costs per animal & shipping, I've decided to wait & put my focus on my soft & LPS coral aquaculture efforts.  I remain hopeful that "normal" is around the corner & once it is, I plan to bring in fish livestock again. I will certainly post on my website AND send a newsletter when that happens.

Note, I also work with US livestock collectors so will continue to bring in their inventory which is mainly CUC & sometimes fish.

Orange Lyretail Anthias - Pseudanthias squamipinnis

These are Figi MAC certified at the time I purchased them.

Average Size:

2.5-3" Females

3-4" Males

Anthias do better in schools consisting of one male with several females or all females.  You may only keep one male per tank as 2 will fight to the death usually resulting in both being lost!  If you keep a school of just females, the dominant female will turn male!  I have not seen any color differences between wild caught males & captive females turned male.  These fish are a stunning addition to an established reef tank!  Frozen PE Mysis shrimp & Calanus are core to their diet.  They may eventually eat Formula 2 flakes and Nori Seaweed!  My personal ones do!!

Figi collected males are a deep pink where African specimens remain orange like the females except they get larger, develop polka dots on the side fins and the dorsal fin elongates.  All Anthias are born as females & when no male is present the dominant female in the group turns male!
