    Hey so I have been looking into buying a sargassum triggerfish for my tank which is a 150 reef in progress. But my LFS says that they are EXTREMELY hard to get. so why are they hard to get? And is there any online retailer that usually brings them in good shape? THNX

    I bought a sea apple about three months ago and at the store it was closed up. When I got it home I thought maybe it was just ticked off or something because the tenticles looked like crap.
