Woohoo I ordered an Emporer Angelfish FINALLY!

Well I went ahead and ordered a Juvenile Emporer Angelfish from saltwaterfish.com
None of the LFS around here order Emporers so I had no choice. They're actually located in Fort Pierce which is a city 10 miles from me, so shipping should be a breeze for the Emp. I called and asked if they offered local pick up and they said their facilities are not setup to where they can offer local pick up. I read great things about saltwaterfish.com and considering it's so close to where I live, I'm thinking I should no problems at all.

I am so excited... I've wanted an Emporer Angel for soooo long now. I am excited too because I ordered a Juvenile and to be able to watch it over time change into a beautiful adult Emp will be soooo awesome. I am so excited! I just hope there won't be any problems with my Wrasse compatibility wise.

And just because I've wanted to add a coral or two to my aquarium, they went ahead and cut me a deal on two Orange Ricordea Mushrooms. I was told they shouldn't be able problem to keep with the Emp and Wrasse, so I am just so flipping excited right now! I wonder if my order will make it here tomorrow since it's overnighted? The Orange Ricordeas are pretty hardy and easy to care for, right?

Steve

Awesome fish! I adore the juvenile emperors, the stripes are just so pretty. Be sure to take pictures! I'm living vicariously through your angelfish.

Yes, ricordias are fairly easy to care for if given enough light, but if they are in the same tank as the emperor angel don't be surprised one day if it isn't there and your angel has a colorful smile

Ahhh well that doesn't sound to good, corals can't be kept with Emp Angels? Worst thing that happens is I guess I just keep it in my refugium with my macrolagae I guess.

Still no Emp Angel today, I think it should be here early in the morning tomorrow though with the ricordea's.

Innovator brought up a good point which you may not have been aware of. With that fish, any corals you get will probably end up being eaten or at least nipped. Emperors are not reef safe by any means.
