2 New fish ordered!!

I've sold all but one of the fish I have been keeping in my 44g...

Ordered a Fuzzy Dwarf Lionfish and a Snowflake Eel. Should be here on Wednesday! Pics as soon as all are settled. I'm so excited, its going to be a "predator" tank now! :)

Now I just need a couple small clamps so the Eel doesn't get out of the lid...

I wanted to get an Antennata or a Fu but I was told they don't ship too well sometimes.
I can't wait... he should have the flight information for me in the morning.

Got my lion!! He's itty bitty.
The eel's box was damaged so unfortunately he had to refuse it. I should be getting a new one next wk.

Just a blue damsel but she will be coming out in the next couple days. He is teeny tiny so I am not worried yet. It will just be him, the eel, and inverts. (urchin and starfish)

Is it just me or does it look like a baby Volitans?????
The shipping invoice said "dwarf lion" and he odered a dwarf fuzzy, but it looks like a baby Volitans to me....

hmmm

no species name huh?hows there customer support because it does look like a Pterois species rather than a dendrochirus..the dwarfs usualy dont present such elongated pectoral fins..and i have never seen a fuzzy dwarf that looks like that...

Yeah I am a little peeved at this. I'm almost positive he is a Volitans. Grrrr!!!!

Looks like I will be getting another lion after this one grows out a bit. :P
(Most of the people that would want him he needs to grow out for their predator tanks)

Naw I told him I would just keep him (and grow him out to re sell) but we both know for next time. He doesn't normally deal with lions so he really didn't know it wasn't a dwarf fuzzy either. I cancelled on the eel because there are several LFS's with them so we are just going to go get one tonight.
