I can answer that one for you Alex. Dom will be shipping the CSC's worldwide - he's also indicated that he will be throwing in a free pair of captive bred blood shrimp with each order for the first 10 customers !

CSC Confirmed Orders:

1. Andrew
2. Brandon
3. Alex

Good to know Andrew!
I've 6 or 7 friends very interested in a pair of this super rare CSC's maroon (fish from hell) clowns.
I'll make a list and maybe Dom could possibly think about a trip to deliver them in person.......and drink some caipirinha, of course!

' Why is it in the jellyfish tank Dave ? '

' Why not '

' Because it's a $%$%@ jellyfish display not a $$%@@# blood shrimp display Dave '

' Says who '

' It says #%$%@ jellyfish display on the front of the tank Dave ! '

I gave up trying to have it moved as it became obvious it was a waste of my valuable acro shopping time............
Reef Builders did an article for him haha he's been trying for a while!!

I think the jelly display is a great idea until Dave get's off his bum and gets some actual jellies!! haha

Alex, this is like the warning signs you see at the zoo saying "Please don't feed the monkey's" well I should have to say it but please don't encourage the Andrew he doesn't need any further encouraging haha

If you pay for the trip I'll hand deliver anything you'd like Alex

Speaking on NCSC (non-clown-safe-clowns) though, I managed a couple of half decent shots of the duo yesterday and some flubber just to annoy Andrew

One has darker markings than the other one Dom, make sure you fix that issue before sending the first ten pairs out to the CSC beta test group.

If your mate bred blood shrimp that were afraid of the dark they wouldn't hide in caves where we don't get to see them most of the time. Also, electric blue markings would look better than just white and would make them sell like hotcakes - tell him biggles said ' you're welcome '.

I'm fairly certain that she's going to be the boss! She's slightly larger too so we'll see what happens!

Thanks Alex! I've been chasing a roaps butterfly for years and years now and I'm just over the moon with him!! I couldn't be happier to finally have one in the tank! He's got a wonderful personality too!!

I wasn't going to say anything but since you did I'll second that you need to get the markings perfect Dom. My csc need to be perfect.

They are great looking fish.

haha they're like sheep at the moment, being a cat person with a particularly "playful" Burmese I'm not afraid of when they turn into Brutus 1 and 2
I've got some plans in place and a couple of little acrylic tanks coming for copepod breeding so fingers crossed! I'm also going to try and get my hands on some of the Reed Mariculture TDO foods too as they're meant to be unbelievable for clowns

I don't think the first batch or two are going to be very spectacular but hopefully once I get the hang of it, it'll get impressive! I'm planning on just selling them through my LFS

Dom, It went totally over my head. You bought the clowns! Congratulations! Where are you keeping them? Could I get a picture with them in the tank?

Thank you,
