usually hardy and easy to keep, and they are very
peaceful fish. But they have very small eyes and
often have difficulty finding food before the other

This is like buying a kitten or a puppy, that will change as it
grows and matures.
We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to ship. Not so
small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big
that they will have trouble adjusting to a new home.
The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the
ones we ship that we raised up, and you can too!

don't eat all the food and starve the Dragon Fish.
Even though they look ferocious, Dragon Fish are
very peaceful fish.

I am a fish biologist and
I work at case university

types of fish . I have order
many fish from you about

inches and now he is 18
inches and full of life
with some puffer and peacock
eel and fan dancer gobys.

with their very small eyes. Be sure yours gets plenty
of live Black Worms, live Ghost Shrimp, and perhaps
small fish like Guppies.
