    I never had an issue with adding new ones with my Naso. The one I had before and now. They’re rather shy to begin with so I would add them first.

    Yes that would be the route I would go with cause sailfin can be pretty aggressive.

    I'm not tied to a sailfin. But I know my wife wants to try another Atlantic. It's not something you see often local so I'll have to order.

    Really? U sure you don't work for them hahaha! She was gutted we lost the one we got last weekend. I haven't been in there since I got my Niger a few months back. Maybe I'll take a trip up. They are closest to me technically. Wife wants a couple new fish for her cube, so maybe a window shopping day is in order. Any hippo last time you were there?

    I go there on a weekly basis to get supply so I see what they have every week. They have hippos often. Pick the healthiest one and have them hold it for ya. Do not put their water in your tank as majority are copper treated tanks.

    My Niger came from copper. I just acclimated in the bag and then put him in without letting my net touch my water. I always wondered that do they hold? Like if i go tomorrow and find one, have them hold till the following week? my normal place does that, but i havent bought fish regularly at critter since i got my blood parrots in my fresh tank. Id likely put them in my QT tank anyways, so not as big of deal.

    You don't have to prepay no but it's better if you do as they're more willing to hold.

    Just so that you know they generally gets new stock in on Thursday so Thursday afternoon or evening is the best time to view the new fishies before they get picked out cause the pretty ones goes fast.

    I see that fish there often so I don't think that would be a problem.
