    Very good price for local delivery . And fish were all healthy. But didn't have the fish that I ordered . They should really update the website and on their stock levels . Was given replacement fish but was 3 of the same fish which wasn't what I wanted . Other then that was happy with fish that arrived .

    My first order with Marine Direct for some corals. Well packed on time delivery although to the wrong airport. Qantas do not deliver to my regional airport on Friday. Dave was very good he called me air the airport and advised me that he had to send my coral to Melb.Airport instead of Moorabbin.He did apologize for th einconcenience and offer me a credit for my next order. Look forward to ordering some fish from Dave.

    First time order with Marine Direct. Dave called me back and assured me that my order will be delivered to my regional airport. On the morning of the delivery, Dave called me to advised that Qantas do not fly to the regional airport on a Friday and had to be delivered at Melb.Airport. A bit disappointed, have to make a 3hours round trip to Melb.AIrport to pickup. I managed to get a taxi truck to collect my corals for $110. Dave, apologized for the inconvenience and offered a credit on my next purchase. The corals arrived in a well packed styro foam box and they looked great. Will be looking at buying some fish next order

    I haven't been in the marine hobby for long but the service and shipped fish is of excellent quality. There coral selection is good. They are very friendly to call and enquire especially David. I would gladly purchase more quality corals from them in the near future. Regards Ranjan

    I have never dealt with a more honest and passionate aquarium company!!!! On the morning of my fish being delivered Dave rang me to tell me the fish I had requested was not fit to be sent to me. I changed my preference to a fish that was similar. I have been doing this for almost 7 years and have never had someone so honest about there livestock. I will definitely be telling anyone I know about this fantastic company. Thank you so much for the great service and quality Livestock !!!!!

Twinspot Lionfish (Dendrochirus biocellatus)

The Fu Manchu Lionfish, also known as the Twinspot Lionfish, or Ocellated Lionfish, has red, white, and black vertical stripes along the body. It has large, fan-like pectoral fins, and tall, quill-like dorsal fins. It is unique from other Lionfish because of the two, feeler-like appendages on the chin.

A 30 gallon or larger aquarium with numerous hiding places is suitable. It will hide while acclimating to its new environment. The top spines are venomous, causing reactions similar to a bee sting, only stronger.

When first introduced into the aquarium, live saltwater feeder shrimp should be used to entice this fish to eat. The Fu Manchu Lionfish diet consists of meaty foods such as live shrimp (including ornamental shrimp), live fish, and sometimes, crustacean flesh.
