Where are you getting your leopard wrasses from?
I think I got one from New wave and one from Minnetonka petco
I lucked out and they get along
try TSM Aquatics online as well. They QT and condition with mysis etc before selling. Great to deal with and I have a fat M. Geoffrey to prove it. Good luck!
I actually just found and purchased a beautiful M. meleagris from Divers Den. The Moyers leopard I got from them 9 months ago came in perfect condition.
I do believe New Wave just mentioned getting some in earlier this week.
Pics when you get it
They did, but not the species I was looking for. Thanks for the heads up!
Nice choice, but you would not be disappointed with any of those Ornates that were listed.
I noticed that RVS Fishworld posted photos of M. vivienae last week.
Hopefully we will get to see some of those available in The States.
Ornate’s are gorgeous and I bet the ones at New Wave were great specimens. I specifically wanted M. Meleagris because it was the fish that brought me to the dark side (from fresh to saltwater). World of Fish had one in their Red Sea display tank and the addiction began. 4 years later and I finally have a chance to own one!
I just hope my Moyers leopard doesn’t give him any trouble.
M. Vivienae? Yes please!
Yeah, I GUESS M. Viviene is an ALRIGHT looking fish. Lol.
That's real pretty.
Couldn't pass this guy up at New Wave today. The coloring was just too much. (And I know, no quarantine. I need to get more confident in my QT process. The last time I had a tank I lost more fish in QT than I did just putting them in the display. Operator error I know but I can't get over that fear of losing them in a QT)
Sadly, no pics. I called DD yesterday to voice my concerns about the temps here in MN and they didn’t believe it would be a problem.
Unfortunately, it was. Water temp via laser probe was 61 degrees on arrival today and the fish is mostly dead (and not in the Princess Bride kind of way). I released it after acclimation and it kind of fluttered to the sand and flopped around for awhile. It eventually managed to bury itself but I highly doubt I will ever see it again. A 16 degree temp increase in such a short amount of time is sure to wreak havoc on her organs. DD, which has always been great and has delivered no fewer than a dozen fish to me without a single loss, had good customer service. Based on the temp, even though it was a “live arrival guarantee only” fish, agreed that they were at fault on this one and intend to credit my account if the fish fails to resurface. They were very reasonable about the whole process, which I really appreciated.
Hopefully it won’t take another year to find another specimen in such good health.
I'm so sorry dude
