Koi Moorish Idol 
(Zanclus cornutus)
This large show sized Abberant Moorish Idol PAIR came in on 9/21/22 and have been housed together since! Upon arrival, they treated with broad spectrum antibiotics for any potential infections. After completion it was then moved to an isolated system to begin copper treatment where it is currently completing quarantine. Since arrival, they have eaten well and are currently on Nori, V20 2.4mm Krill soft pellets, and PE mysis. Being that moorish Idols have reputation to be difficult long term, this fish should only be purchased by an experienced hobbyist that is willing to keep up with its dietary needs- feeding frequently and supplying plenty of fiber in its diet.
This pair is currently ready to ship!
