Just an fyi...............the fish you have labeled as a C. decussatus in the DD is in fact a C. vagabundus. I was disappointed, as I have been waiting for a month for the C.decussatus (you mentioned was in QT )to show up for sale.

Heres a link of the two fish. You can clearly see the differences in the backend & tail colors.

Big E,

Thank you for your post. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention. A message has been sent to our Aquaculture Coral & Marine Life Facility to verify the identification of the C. decussatus that was listed on our Diver’s Den.
