Taking requests!

Postby wichers » Wed Dec 18, 2013 1:06 pm

I'm planning on making a livestock order soon as fish become more available. If you have any interest in a particular animal I'll see if I can get it or at least throw in the request.

dont those Hymenocera elegans only eat starfish?

Harlequin shrimp's only source of nutrition comes from starfish. They are very skilled at flipping over the slow starfish on its back, and eating the tube feet and soft tissues until it reaches the central disk. They, usually one female and one male, use their claws to pierce the tough skin and feeding legs to help them maneuver the starfish. Sometimes the starfish will shed the arm that the shrimp attacked and regrow (the shrimp can then re eat it), but it is usually too wounded to regrow. They may also feed on sea urchins but that is rare and only if they're very hungry because they have tube feet as well.[8]

read a few forums where they munch starfish. was gonna get one. but decided against it.

Just 1 lettuce. I haven't been able to get one from MC. If it isn't too late, could you price a small yellow tang.

Shipment is on its way. 3 boxes this time since one fish took up a whole box! I'm not 100% sure on if the lettuce nudibranch made it on the list yet but made a request for one. Once I see the invoice I'll know more. There was no yellow tangs available.

Lettuce nudi is on the invoice Susan. The flight comes in at 11pm tonight unless if makes the earlier flight, which I am really hoping for. That would be at 8:40pm. I'll keep everyone posted on what's going on. Feel free to text or call me at 759-7100 for pick up.
