Maintenance Alert

Most will thrive on a good quality flake food. To supplement the diets of herbivores and algae eaters, blanch (briefly submerge in boiling water) pieces of dark, leafy green vegetables (spinach, greens, lettuce) and place them in the tank; anchoring them with small rocks or pieces of gravel. During periods of severe cold weather, shipments of tropical fish may be delayed at our discretion. You will be notified and given a revised shipping date.

This item can only be shipped to schools, museums and science centers
