Dr. Seuss Soapfish
(Belonoperca pylei)

This Dr. Seuss has been solid form the start and eats well! The Dr. Seuss should be kept in a cooler temperature tank and fed clean protein. Being a Soapfish, the Dr. Seuss has the potential to release a soapy toxin into the aquarium. While this is incredibly unlikely, it should only be purchased by a hobbyist that accepts the risk. This particular Dr. Seuss is being housed in our deepwater system and will be re - quarantined once purchased. Due to the nature of this fish, it will undergo a Specialized TTM Style Quarantine as to not harm it with abrasive medications. Shipping can be expected 2 weeks after purchase.
