We maintain proper permits for all sharks.  We are not fly by night amateurs or poachers.
We are skilled pros with more than 15 years in shark collection for aquaria.

 

We have a constantly changing stock of local and Caribbean species of fish, rays, plants, shells and other sea life.  We are working to offer a weekly stock list of these but checking this page is the fastest way to check stock for now.  If you wish us to email you the stock list when the program begins, please, email us and request to have your email placed on the mailing list.  We get some very unusual creatures in our unconventional collection techniques and research projects.  So, request anything from the Peterson's Field Guide to Atlantic Fishes and we will let you know if we can get it. 

For now we are posting our stock list on this page.  Below in the "In Stock" Section, we also have a list or stock we collect to order.  We simply do not stock common items until we have a buyer.  We are working to increase the fin fish we stock.  We have begun stocking the public aquarium staple schooling fishes such as Spadefish, Jacks, Lookdowns, Drum as well as our low impact Stock and are offering Florida Caribbean and Gulf tropical fishes.  Our Low Impact Stock is fry fish we collect from the wild that normally get eaten.  We will grow them into the desired sizes which means we will have tiny Permit, Pompano, Lookdowns, Moonfish as well as the show sizes but without impacting the overall wild populations in our home ecosystem.  For now, we have the following stock that we will be adding to constantly.

With collection in Florida, we will begin offering cleaning crews for your aquarium in addition to the angelfishes, tangs, parrots, morays and other Caribbean, Gulf and tropical Atlantic fare. Please, contact us early to place an order for the tropical fish as they are collected to order. Sea cucumbers and cleaning crews will be stocked items.

NEW: Mini-flounders (AKA Freshwater Flounders) for removing worms including bristle worms.  We are offering these for coral protection.  THEY ARE SEASONAL.  We have a limited supply right now which will run out shortly.  Then they will not be available again for months.  See our Local Stock page to order them now.  They are really cool and colorful little fish in the sole or tonguefish group.  They provide a necessary service and are very hearty.  They are NOT born to live in freshwater though they can tolerate brackish water most of their life and freshwater for a very short period of time.  ORDER NOW.  Limited stock.

STOCK March, 2017
(Prices do not reflect S&H or Box Charge)
Remember, stock changes on a daily basis and we update this page, at best, weekly.  Call or email about important orders.  Also, public aquaria especially, you should not wait on our surplus listings here but place an order for what you need.  The stock listed here are extra fish that we make available to the public.  It is not a page for jobbers, aquarium companies, or public aquaria to use as a purchase page.  For more info on placing an order, follow the ordering instructions for sharks.

Price List and Buy Now Options (Some species must now be sent overnight**)

Also, these are BUYNOW buttons.  So, if you want more than one item, just make them as separate purchases.  You are not losing money as the freight on some things cannot combine.  But, if your order exceeds our freight requirements by more than $10, we will give you an email offering more purchases to make up the difference or a partial refund of freight.  We want you to get the best deal for your money.

We are currently phasing in our new credit card merchant services company, Square, and phasing out Paypal (probably for good). Therefore, we have removed all the online BUYNOW buttons but left up the price lists.  To place an order, please, call us or email us your order with the quantity you want and the prices you see below and we will email you a Squareup Invoice for payment online.  Most of the posted prices should be current but if they are not, we will correct them and send you an invoice to pay through Square.  We are trying to have purchases done on this site and not on a separate purchasing site. 
So, until we get it worked out, it is best to handle the purchases the way we handle shark purchases.
You send in your order list and we supply the invoice with all pricing and then you pay online.
Sorry for the lack of instant purchase but we have to work out the transition to a new card company.  Thank you in advance to all of our regular clients for your patience.

Snails

Cleaner Snails Nasarius (AKA False Nasarius, Ilynassa obsoleta)   PM
Great cleaners and meat eaters.  That is, they will eat the meat and bits left over by your fish while not attacking or disturbing your pets.  They do not attack or harm reef dwellers but will devour dead and rotting trash in the hard to reach places of your system.  Remember to feed them regularly if they finish cleaning your system and there is no build up left for them as food.

These predator snails will eat some detritus but will actively hunt clams.  They are wild to watch feeding as they overcome the clams indomitable defenses.

Algae  PM
(We are still adding pictures.  We have also added new stock from our aquaculture suppliers.  Retailers: Call us for bulk wholesale pricing,)  Just select the type you want then click the BuyNOW button below!

All of my Algae works as a Nitrate Sponge eliminating waste and with some animals providing food.  Algae eating species like Angelfish may prefer to eat some of the algae.  I have no reports of using Codium with these, but, they should eat seaweed sheets just like tangs or other algae grazers.  Most of the algae is going to prefer water flow.  Codium and other branching algae offer sanctuary to small shrimp and fish in systems where mass water flow from filters is unavoidable.  Simply anchor your algae and let 'er rip.  Unfortunately, I cannot ship the anchors occurring naturally like shells and rocks as they would puncture the shipping bag.

Codium (Dead Man's Fingers) Green Fleece Algae Clumps
These clumps are large and therefore cost more to ship.  This species is an invader to our waters.  We harvest as much as we can each trip to try and eliminate it from our aquatic environment.  It appears to have arrived here from India in ships' ballast tanks.  It is excellent for Shrimp and Fish Fry.  It gives them great cover and hiding spaces as well as provides food supplement for grass shrimp.

2 Portions - $17.99  S&H $8
3 Portions - $19.99  S&H $8
Note: Actual S&H is more than listed but to make BUYNOW button menu easy, I kept it all the same and moved the overrage into the price of the items.
 
 



Red Algae Clusters 2 - appr. 3" pieces - $ (When available)
This species really adds beauty and natural color to your tank or can be used for shrimp in your refugium.  It is a great accent to a bland tank.  It should be placed in some current for faster growth.

 

SPECIAL OFFER: Recommend us on a Bulletin Board or Forum online and get some free food added to your order!!! Just send us the link to verify your posted recommendation of this page and we'll add to your next order!

We are planning to add Mysis Shrimp, Jellyfish and other food & live prey items to our menu.  If there is a specific marine or fresh feeder animal that you need and don't see here, email us and ask about it.  Chances are if its in the Atlantic or the Southeast, we can get it for you.
