    Hey y'all, I just did a massive update on our website where I added 100 WYSIWYG Crocea clams. Each one of these is incredibly cool and unique from each other.

    I only have only two of these captive-bred goldflake angelfish in stock! The gold flake is a beautiful angelfish that does well in mixed reefs and is among some of the better options to be reef safe for angelfish. They're great to add at this 2.5-3" sizing so they can grow into your tank and...

    Female or Male Mandarin first?

    Hello, I plan on ordering some captive bred blue mandarins, but I only want to add one at a time so the pod population won't be wiped out, but I ultimately want a pair. Would it be better for me to get a male first or a female first? Does it matter? Thanks!

    Availability of Captive Bred Marine Fish and Cultured Corals in the UK.

    Some time ago I made the decision to try and source all my livestock from Captive Bred Fish Stock and Cultured Corals. My choice in no way condemns or condones any other sustainable and ethical choices. It is simply my own choice. Due to my experiences and sometimes, seemingly uphill struggle...
