    We have a true collected pair of Bandits that we just conditioned and have ready to go. We've had some requests for a Bandit auction, so here it is. These 2 are a little bigger than our last pair we sold. One is roughly 6'' and the other slightly larger, but around same range. Please bid in $25 minimum increments. Starting bid is $1,500 and shipping is included. Good luck!

    They are eating frozen. No pellets yet, but eventually come around to it.

I don't have good luck with goldflakes but flagfin no problem and a cream angel no problems at all... Let me know your thoughts..

    Never man. Honestly I would maybe add them first. They are deep water so they may be shyer than most others. Are they part of the swallowtail family? If so I would imagine they would be quite hardy.

    Honestly I would also think a pair together would fare better. Do you have an acclimation box? I highly recommend them. It's amazing at how much less stress your fish go through because of it. Get them feeding and once they are in there a few days and eating. Let them out I would guess they would be fine. Aren't they also planktovores? If so then they should eat anything you throw at them. Have you tried live blackworms?

    They're eating frozen brine and frozen mysis right out of water column. We won't sell them unless they were. We've had a lot of success selling Bandits over the years.
