I'm gonna start making some calls. Since I don't have a SW QT I'm gonna have to pick them up myself. They go for either $30 or $40 each around me.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Why not click the notify? If you find them earlier, yay. If not, you're reminded when they're in stock.

LOL Thanks. I just may do that. Dont know what the b/f would say if I told him we need a 4th tank. I know I can get one more tank but I was holding out for a 110 or 220. D

A thought just occurred to me, what if the first place I find them is at Petco? I go in often and I know they've had them. Think it would be safe?

I don't trust petco fish. Since it's a California based company, by California law, they cannot medicate any fish for any reason. So if one fish has a disease, they all do.

Ask your LFS to see if they can order you a pair. I know a couple of places around me that will bend over backwards to get a fish in for me. I usually get it a couple of days after it gets in and when I go get it I ask to see it eat. My excuse is I will come get it when I have to do a water change on my tank so I can drip acclimate it to my tank. I use petco for hardware only. I nearly got myself a maxi mini anemone and went back twice to get it but they couldn't get it off the filter guard. I found one at a LFS that was just as pretty.

Why only QT if you order? QTing is a personal decision, but there's really nothing safer about buying from a LFS. Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it's not sick. Your LFS's "QT" protocol you mentioned on another thread didn't sound like a QT to me.

Never had a problem with petco.
The fish I got from petco lived for a VERY long time until they got sick from a fish from the LFS.

My tomato clown came from an online store and he is healthy and happy, would do it again and they are cheaper too!!!
