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.


Moorish Idol


Out of Stock

Moorish Idol - Zanclus canescens

Sample video below (pictures above are examples only)

Size approx. 4-5" Nose to tail

Max Adult Size Approx. 7" nose to tail.

Known for being difficult, I have found they are no more difficult to keep than a Tang.  Problem with Moorish Idols is that they stress easily & once very stressed, will stop eating.  For me it was a matter of finding a supplier that purchased theirs from ethical collectors, those who handled these magnificent animals properly, from collection through to me!  Then I figured out what I needed to do to get them eating.  Once they are, they are golden.

Moorish Idols will act just like a puppy dog when it gets to know it's owner/family.  Not shy at all, you will be rewarded by this beautiful fish who will come to greet you & want to play!

This fish is safe to be in a tank with my aquacultured tank raised soft corals for sale on this website including Branching & Leather soft coralsToadstool soft coralsPolyp soft coralsMushroom & Ricordea soft coralsZoanthid soft coralsXenia soft coralsGorgonian and Sponge soft coralsLPS hard corals as well as SPS hard corals.  Please be aware that they need to be fed Nori Seaweed in the morning to graze on during the day to ensure they don't develop bad behaviors like picking on things/corals they shouldn't.  If provided Nori & PE Mysis Shrimp & ON Formula 2 Flake foods later in the day they should be model citizens in a tank.  :c)
