    This week, we were able to get one of our client's a beautiful Earl's Fairy Wrasse. What are you looking for? (We may require a deposit, depending on the fish.)

    Not very expensive, but seems extremely hard to find lately. How about a Blue Spotted Jawfish? Availability? Price?

    Speaking to our buyer, I learned that these are a regulated/permitted item and that we get them in about every 3 to 6 months (like 30 to 60 at a time) and then no more for another 3 to 6 months. Please make sure you are on our waiting list for this item so you can snag one as soon as they hit our inventory. Thanks!

    Wow, I admit this is one I had never heard of, but we will definitely look into seeing if we can get one. I'm sure the reason they are so hard to get is that they are very deep water fish.

    We do actually get these in every couple of months, I have seen them several times. Are you on the waiting list for them?

    I have never seen us get a juvenile marine betta in, just adults, but I will check into both this one (love how they look with the fewer spot and more blue) and the Johnson's Fairy Wrasse (terminal male).

    I know we have had these in before - we had them listed as the "Red Striped Worm Goby" - I'll check with our buyers on getting some.

    We've never had these before - I'll have to see if it's something we can even get at all.
