The Specimens listed
on this page are Advanced Aquarist Species Only. That means these
items either have an increased level of care required, are very
difficult to ship, or are more difficult to acclimate to the
home aquarium environement. Therefore all below are recommended
only for the expert marine aquarist, zoo, or research institution.
These items have no guarantee offered or implied.Please order
these items at your risk as we recommend Advanced Aquarist Species
be left for the experts and not for the home aquarist unless
he or she is very comfortable with advanced species. But in any
and all cases they do not carry any guarantee and if they arrive
dead or die after arrival there will not be credit issued.
Special Notice: Items in red are considered dangerous to other members of the tank because they secrete toxins that can kill the remaining tank inhabitants if they die. We will not be held responsible for any reason.
