    I have checked and we have never had them before. I will try to see if/where we might be able to get some from. These are so freaking cool!

    These two should be too hard - we have had both in stock. Are you signed up for our automated waiting list for these items?

    We have had these in before as well, but only in XL. I will send a message to our buyers to see if we can get them again. What size would you be interested in?

    My yellow assessor is out and about all the time. My tank is in my bedroom, as soon as I open my eyes and look at my tank he's in the bottom corner of the glass staring at me sleep. he's nowhere near cryptic. Awesome little guy.

    From what I know they're almost impossible to keep, ship, QT, or Feed. But there's so little information, that could have just been the 'easy' answer from a fish vendor.

    If I could find at the $50 they were going for I'd buy one. I'm not paying $90-$130

    The smaller the better, but any size would do.

    We definitely get wild caught Ocellaris in. I will have to check on getting wild caught Onyx and True Perculas. The only wilds we have in right now are Tomatoes and Gold-Stripe Maroons.

    I swear that I learn something new every day in this hobby/job... apparently, we do get the Heniochus diphtuetes in (from Hawaii: see Central Pacific on our region selection) occasionally, but we have them listed under the Heniochus acuminatus right now. They are almost identical.

    I will forward this on to our team to get it corrected on the website.

    You are now the third person on our list for the Gulf Signal Blenny (Emblemaria hypacanthus), we are trying to get our hands on these, but haven't had any success yet. We have added your name though and will be sure to let you know if we can get some in. Thanks!

    Do you know what the cost will be if you do get them in?
