Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items
The Atlantic spadefish, is a very large species which is only suitable for the largest home aquariums. These fish are silvery with black vertical bands and long filaments on their anal and dorsal fins. They look a little like freshwater angelfish but are longer and much larger. When maturing the black bands fade and they become entirely silver with only some black rims on the dorsal, caudal and anal fin.
These fish form large groups till over 500 individuals and swim in coastal waters and mangroves. They're not shy and even swim in water so shallow they can't even swim upright. Their main food source are all kind of invertebrates like shrimps, snails, mussels, worms, jellyfish as well as plankton.
