If you have clients looking for that showpiece fish, or have an opening in your big display, we have a limited number of very large Clown Triggers (Balistoides conspicillum) that are gorgeous and totally human conditioned. These are jaw droppers.

Also on the cool / lesser seen side, we have some Scrawled Blue Spot Cowfish (Acanthostracion quadricornis) in a great small size. These are sure to get people to stop in their tracks.

For the people looking for aquacultured clownfish, we have a good supply of A/C Yellow Stripe Maroon Clowns (Premnas epigramma) that are a perfect large size. There is a good amount of misbarring in the group.

On the invert side of the house, we have some African Red Tip Stars (Protoreaster lincki) that are in amazing condition and just brilliantly colored. These are outstanding.

On the Cultured front, we have a great supply of Aquacultured Toadstool Leather Corals (Sarcophyton sp.) that are very nice. Generally when you see cultured leathers, they don't look like toadstools yet, but these do. A very nice batch of a durable A/C coral at a great price.

Make sure you give your sales rep a call as we have some amazing specials and some killer live rock deals that you need to call in to get. We are also turning over a lot of cultured coral stock right now so get your orders in early to avoid not having access to stuff you really want in the store. Don't miss these opportunities.
