Thank you for your post. We will be more than happy to check with our Aquaculture Coral & Marine Life Facility and Kevin on the future availability of rare reef safe species. We are currently housing an Acreichthys tomentosus pair (http://www.liveaquaria.com/diversden/ItemDisplay.cfm?c=2733+3&ddid=69218) available through Diverís Den; however, they are reef safe with caution. We also have a Cirrhilabrus balteatus (http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=15+1378+2284&pcatid=2284) through LiveAquaria. This reef safe Wrasse is very colorful with interesting markings.

We have provided links below to a couple of other choices that you may interested in. We will post as soon as possible regarding future availability on Diverís Den.

I apologize for the delay in responding. For continued good health Labrids (Wrasse) should be fed several times per day, small quantities of enriched meaty food.

If you are able to change your feeding routine to accommodate their needs, some upcoming fish that are slated to be posted in the Divers Den in the next 30 days if all goes well include:

Blue Stripe Tamarin Wrasse- Anampses femininus- 6" female- $1299.99
Choat's Red Leopard Wrasse- Macropharyngodon choati - 3" females- $199.99
