This week I am obviously going to feature our newest addition to the stocklist New Caledonia Sunrise Anthias (undescribed). These are a Short Supply Chain fish, and a QM exclusive. There are very few left unsold, so if you want to be first with this anthias, get it now.

Also this week, we received a sweet batch of Aquacultured True Black Ocellaris (Amphiprion ocellaris). Generally we get these at a smaller size where the color hasn't quite hit maturity level black, this batch is much closer to that on average. These are very healthy with great fins, and good general condition.

From our Short Supply Chain in Fiji, we have a good supply of MAC Purple Pygmy Anthias (Luzonichthys waitei). This is a fish that always performs well in house and is a staff favorite. They are a little less known Anthias so sometimes they don't get the attention they deserve. If you want to try an Anthias you don't see very often, but a brand spankin new species isn't your cup-o-tea, try some of these.

For those of you looking for a new aiptasia blaster, the Aquacultured Monoco Peppermint Shrimp (Lysmata seticaudata) does a great job. If you have some colonial anemones like yellow polyp that you enjoy having, do not add these to the display containing those items. When they are done with the aiptasia, they go looking for other anemones. Other than that, these are amazing.

Also from one of our aquacultured sources, we have limited number of Aquacultured Lunar Destroyer Zoanthids (Zoanthid sp) with that glowing rim and excellent coverage on the rocks. We have a great variety of other Aquacultured Zoanthids right now as well.

Lastly we have a very limited supply of extremely nice Gold Tip Ancoras that are just fluorescent. These are nicely sized (on the big side) and have good polyp extension. We don't have very many.
