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 Flying Gurnard is a light-brown colour with orange to dark-brown spots. The pectoral fins can be flared out into an impressive display of fan-like wings, with spines extending beyond the flesh at the tips. The tips of the wings are tinged with a blue.
An aquarium with a large unobstructed swimming area and a sandy bottom without much rockwork will provide a suitable environment. Aggressive tank mates should be avoided as well as bottom dwellers.
The diet of the Flying Gurnard consists of mysis shrimp, brineshrimp and other chopped meaty foods.
The Flying Gurnard is Reef Safe with caution as they will prey on any small fish or crustaceans that will fit in to its mouth, however they will not harm any corals.
