I just checked to verify and www.bluezooaquatics.com has several other species available.


Gonodactylus smithii

Gonodactylaceus ternatensis

Gonodactylellus viridis

Lysiosquillina maculata

With a user name like the one you selected, I'd think you'd be able to snap your fingers and get whatever you needed?

They had some for sale a few weeks ago. I know they had at least one "Orange Spot" for sale and something else I can't remeber off the top of my head.

be careful with "orange spot". this may mean a g. ternatensis, the harvest of which often involves destruction of the coral they live in.

I got an email from a store in Texas I purchased my Peacock and another green mantis from stating he has a good size maculata for sale for $60.00. Mine arrived great although he did hit me hard for shipping ($95 for the pair). Here's a link. http://shop.neptunescove.net/Zebra-M...tis-shrimp.htm
