The Clarkii and nem look cool mate! I see Clarkiis and tomato clowns in Maidenhead shops every now and again, but certainly not super common. Sounds like your apprentices are worth keeping!!!

Had not thought to look there might have to visit the wakey and shat stores

Sounds like a deal you should jump on it if your OK with adding sand.

I had a carpet anemone for over 20 years and it like the sand bed and actually stayed in the same place with it's foot on the bottom glass. As shown in my avatar. One of the members on here has Malu that has done great. I think it eventually got large so he gave it it's own tank. Did you try a search here on NR?

I like both those ideas. I hope once you decide you can find what your looking for. Live stock is so hit or miss right now.

Is that what is posted at a LFS? I just checked an on line store that members here use a lot and the selection was way down. Most of what I might be interested in was Out Of Stock.

Have you been into a Maidenhead Aquatics yet? I know i need to check out a couple near me, just to see what they have in. Typically have a decent deal on Softies...

Those prices are nuts, but as a side note, stay away from Neoglyphidodon, blue velvets especially.

 

You probably already know to, but I honestly don't know why they're even sold lol.

Yeah they were attempting to split the fish between the tanks while I was there, they were causing absolute chaos

Idnno man, some of the prices Ratvan was posting from ya'lls online stores and some of the prices I see in the EU when looking for one specific animal or another would drive men to murder stateside. Ya'll can get some incredible animals for crazy low prices, seems supply right now is crushed on your side of the puddle though...

Yep it's true. I have 2 local stores and both are pretty low on most stock.  High demand, low stock equal big price for some reason

You what honestly hurts the most is last year I purchased a Xenia frag for £1.99 had a deal 3 for £5. Same sized frag £10

 

And I hate the stuff. 

Might see if I can snap some corresponding DT photos

Hooked up the inkbird and decided that I need to swap the gooseneck for the Par38 to a pendant. 

 

Just need to dial in temp a little and we're ready for first additions (reading 80.5F)
