It's 3:12 pm and it's gone! I missed it!

Was it really $7,500?

They are same ones from BaliAquarich. QM had two. One went to DD(this one) one went to a private collected here in Orange County.

We got CITES permits on a few extras that coming soon. Hence the preorders for them.

Pm me if you want more info.

If they should only have had one, it sounds like they "sold" the one yesterday immediately to show that there is a demand for it... But it's really the same fish that is available today.

According to Jake A. LA acquired two from QM...so itís mostly likely two different clarions, possibly from the same batch.

The conspiracy theorist in me wants to believe this as the one listed on friday sold immediately whereas the one listed yesterday is still available. However, the listed sizes for the two differ slightly (2-3/8" for the one listed on Fri and 2-1/4" for the one listed yesterday) and the photos differ (but are taken from different sides). The one that sold immediately on Friday did look better than this one though.

If you shop LA/DD frequently and you want an expensive fish you either pay premium or wait till the sale/discount comes out which is normally once a week. I have done it wih a Black Tang, Large Blueface, and several others. I have been thinking about the juvenile Chrysurus for a few days and walla, it is coming tomorrow with me saving $34. Every time I see an item sell at 5:00 pm i figure it was a negotiated sale and just used for advertisement. There is no way you can get the email/check the site, and then place it in your box and pay in less than 59 seconds.

As far as conspiracy I’m not sure. I just know that last Tuesday QM had 2. And one went to my buddy. Now, that left one still there although my rep told me it was not available. So now I don’t know if it’s the same one from last weeks DD or a new one, but either way it was not QTd fully. I never trust DD for their QT process. QM does acclimate well, and have massive UV systems in place. Their facility is amazing but we all know that thousands of fish coming in and out of the systems every day cannot be properly QTd.
That being said, I fully believe these fish are not QTd by any real means and their procedures are not correct anymore.

Sure you can. I can pay in 30 seconds max. You canít wait for the email. Have to refresh the site right as the clock turns to 5:00. If you already have your cc info in their system itís only a few clicks to check out. Last fish I got right at 5 was my juvenile blueline angel.

Please explain this 5:00pm thing... is it just for fish that may go on sale? I'm fairly certain that it would not have mattered for the fish I purchased but I'm curious to understand this fully. Thanks.

5:00 PM is the time that they post the new fish on the website each weekday.

Ok, so it's not for a sale, it's for the new fish. Gotcha.

At 5:00 central time they update the the divers den list. If you want there really in demand stuff you have to be on the site and ready to pay right as it updates.

I have been to Liveaquaria in Wi lots of times and that is where Divers Den is but I am sure you know that.

They quarantine everything, fish and coral. At least that is what they say. I have seen all the quarantine systems so I have no reason to doubt them.

The other Liveaquarias I would bet do not but WI does.
