    Dear sir, I recently received my first purchase (clownfish) via website. I am very impressed with service. I received a fish matching exactly the criteria I specifically asked for and also received great service with the numerous questions I asked. I will definitely be making my future purchases here :)

    Even after Brisbane Airport stuffed up and the fish were stranded overnight, my warranty was honored. Fish were a good size and good quality. Looking forward to doing more business with you.

    The fish are in mint condition, the service is great and you don't feel like just a number and you actually have phone contact with the person you have bought the fish from, in the past with other company's your just a number and the only contact is email ! Even over the internet buying,it's is still nice to actual talk to a real person ! Cheers JIM .

    I've been into the shop and spoken with David to get advice and have purchased on-line. The price and service is excellent and the fish are very healthy. They all ate for me straight away and are very healthy. I'll definitely purchase more fish of David in the future.

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.
