Naso Tang

Naso Lituratus

Commonly found in the Red Sea, Naso Tanges are typically easy to care for.

Naso Tangs like a variety of plant based foods and thrive well in those larger aquariums. This fish is a frequent “Busy” swimmer and likes lots of room.

Mystery Wrasse

Pseudocheilinus Ocellatus, also known as the Five Bar Wrasse

Found off the coast of Australia and New Caladonia, known for its hearty appetite and ease of care makes this a very good choice for the reef aquarium.

Multi Colored Angel

Centropyge Multicolor

The Multi Colored Angel fish is a strong fish, but likes plenty of places to hide. Its been known to be slightly territorial so we suggest it only for the larger saltwater aquariums.

Mitratus Butterfly

Pomacanthus Maculous

Coming from deep water, it is not a picky eater and is one of the more durable fish for your saltwater aquarium.

Because of the collection procedures necessary, this saltwater fish is fairly rare and hard to come by.

Masked Puffer

Not a very rare fish but like many of the puffer fish they seem to have almost a personality and are a pleasure to watch.  We only bring these in when we find an unusual one eg. Extra Large.

Typically Masked Puffer Fish like lots of hiding places but can also be frequent swimmers throughout your aquarium. However. they like a meaty diet and may not be well suited for a reef tank.

Mappa Puffer

Arothron Mappa.

With its great personality this is one of he most desired Puffer Fish to be found.

Mappa Puffers, like so many of the other Puffer Fish like meaty diets. Mappa Puffers take a while to get accustomed to a new environment, but after they get a little acclimated, they do very well in the tank.

Magnificent Foxface

The Magnificent Foxface is an excellent choice for that saltwater reef tank. Not only is this fish extremely good looking it will help keep your aquarium free from algae.

Just be careful with this fish. Like other fish of the Rabbit Fish variety its spines are known to be venomous (you really shouldn’t be playing with your fish anyway!).

Be sure to give this fish plenty of hiding places and keep it well fed (especially when first introduced to your tank).

 

Maculosus Angel

Pomacanthus maculosus

Also known as Yellowbar Angelfish, Yellow-band Angelfish, Map Angelfish, or Blue Moon Angelfish, Yellowbar Angelfish, Half Moon Angelfish, Map Angelfish, Yellow-Band Angelfish, Yellow-blotch Angelfish, Blue-moon Angelfish

The Maculosus angel is a bold and unafraid fish. It is known to approach divers in the wild and eat out of its owner’s hand in captivity. It has the reputation of being an excellent pet in a large community aquarium.

Adults have dark violet/blue bodies with a large yellow spot on its side (some people say that the say spot looks like the African continent). Juveniles are deep blue with white bars going down the body. As it matures, the fish is often confused for an Asfur Angel while its yellow strip starts to develop.

Maculosus Angel fish for sale usually measure from 1-4 inches, and mature fish have been measure as large as 20 inches.

The Maculosus Angel is found in the Red Sea and in other African waters.

This is one of the more common of the rare fish. It’s not exactly common, but it does end up for sale at retail stores and online, sometimes.

The Maculosus Angel is considered to be a good “first choice” for a large angelfish in an aquarium. It is a beautiful fish, and just as hardy.

They need a tank that is over 200 gallons with plenty of hiding places and a lot of swimming room. They are aggressive toward other Maculosus Angels, so it is best to only keep one in your tank at any given time, unless they are a mated pair (In which case, the tank should be over 300 gallons). Water Parameters: 72 – 78°F sg 1.020-1.026; pH 8.1-8.4; dKH 8-12

Regular water changes are going to be needed to keep the fish healthy, and it will need to be housed with the right combination of passive and community fish.

Maculosus Angels are omnivores, and any food preparations for them should include meaty foods and higher-quality angel preparations, specifically containing sponge material.

The Maculosus Angel is not a good candidate for a reef aquarium. It is known to nip at corals and clams.

Maculosus angel fish are very curious, by nature, and can be aggressive with passive and docile fish in the tank

Look Down Fish

Selene vomer

The Look Down Fish has a very unusual shape, and it’s reflective silver color attests a lot of attention in minimalist aquarium settings. It is a relatively peaceful fish, and very desirable and suitable for home aquariums.

Look Down Fish are found in small groups in the Western Atlantic Ocean, from Uruguay, the Caribbean, to Nova Scotia and surrounding areas.

Look Down Fish are not as rare as much as they are sought after for specific applications, such as making a shimmering school in a long, dark tank.

At the same time, however, finding them in a fish store is a rare occurence.

Look Down Fish have a reputation for being very hardy and having long lives. Aquariums should be at least 125 gallons for a soup of young fish. Schools of adults will need at east 900 gallons. The tank should be set up with open space as the main idea.

Minimalist tanks with corals and plants along the ends, out of the fish’s way work best. This fish doesn’t need spaces to hide as much as open save to swim in. If large structures are going to be used in the aquascape, then attention needs to be paid to make sure that there is still plenty of room for the look downs to swim through.

Look Down Fish will thrive on a variety of quality live or frozen food items. Young specimens can be offered bloodworms, brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, and small guppies. Mature specimens can be offered ghost shrimp, krill, larger guppies, and small chunks of meaty items (such as smelt, silverside, clam, squid, etc.). They may be trained to accept some vitamin-enriched, gel-based diets.

Look Down Fish are not necessarily bad for a reef, but the type of tank that they prefer is not conducive to building a reef tank.

Look Down Fish are good community fish, compatible with other fish that use a lot of space and love swimming in open spaces, like batfish. They coexist well with burrowing fish, like rays, jawfish and sleeper gobies.
