Really? That is terrible! Never heard of somebody doing that before.

They have been heading south down the coast of florida. All the fish places are on alert so hopefully they will stop. My LFS had to install cameras and other security after it happened. they hit their SPS and rare coral tank. i can;t imagine how much they lost. :-( some people are just effed-up.

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

I imagine it's some kind of PETA type idiot. Like the ones that pour red paint on furs.

That makes me angry just thinking about it, have they had news reports or anything on the issue?

I never thought of that. My LFS is one of those coral places though that propogates their own corals and get it from others. They dont get wild coral at all and encourage me to go aquacultured all the time. LOL They picked the wrong shop in that regard to make a statement.

I haven't researched it and I don't watch the news. Always bad crap going on out in the world. I have a tivo so I don't do news or commercials. LOL I've heard this from two stores now, about 60 miles away from each other as well. Mr. Petman in port orange florida also has a warning out to employees to be extra vigilant. ( I know one of the employees )

Well that's great of them. That's what I try to do as well. But nobody ever accused those types of being overly intelligent. All the great stores around you makes me want to go back to FL. You got it made lady!

I paid $50 for a copperband butterfly though! They are more a boutique than a real LFS. LOL It's reflected in their prices on fish.

I did get an amazing deal on my setup from them though, a little over cost. They also can get anything and will match online prices. Just costs me sales tax though if i go through them. But thats a small price to pay for a Really good lfs. hehe
