Blue Jaw Triggerfish, Male, $30

Post by mpedersen on Mon Mar 29, 2010 3:48 pm

So, along with all the other crazy things happening with fish this week, I'm thinking the Blue Jaw Trigger has been pretty well fattened up but isn't going to fit into my plans for the SPS tank. So, I'm offering him for less than I paid, $30, pickup in Duluth. I really could use his tank opened up whether or not I pounce on the once-in-a-lifetime fish that was offered to me today Wink

FYI in the interest of full disclosure, he was a "rescue" from a Petco...he's had bouts of ICH but I've not treated them and he's doing fine and has been since I picked him up. I'd put him through QT.

If you're interested, come and get him!

They don't eat corals...Blue Jaws are "reef safe" although they'll take out crabs and shrimp

So what exactly is this "once-in-a-lifetime" fish anyways?

Even if it doesn't you'll have to tell us what caused you to scramble to raise funds so quickly.

Dansreef, I SOLD 3 of those yesterday to help fund this project. I'm hoping that another sale of all my baby Black O's closes the rest of the gap, but I don't have good confirmation on that sale yet. So a leap of faith. Regardless, this project had to be funded out of my existing possessions. Could not invest NEW MONEY into it. That was the deal with my very understanding wife.

Matt I don't think they could have gone to a better breeder. We'll be watching your progress, and maybe some of us will make it to one of the meetings and see them for ourselves. They look very neat. Congratulations!

That is sweet! I saw that fish on nano-reef and was just in awe, I miss my maroon clown, pita though she was and that is such an awesome pattern.
