UPDATE: I have noted pending sales and sold inventory below. Pending sales remain active until a transaction has completed, so feel free to PM me if you have interest in one or more corals or fish, even if it's pending. I'll follow up accordingly.

Dear friends...I have accepted a position at Stanford and will be moving to California in the latter part of December. Exciting, but heartbreaking to have to sell my corals, fish and my largest tank (160g, which will be posted in the next week or so). This initial post is a nearly full inventory of corals and fish, many being sold for well below market price given their size. Posting a video link below showing the tanks and array of inhabitants (some of which have since been sold), and am happy to welcome CFT visitors who want to see them in person. (I live near Southpoint in Durham.) Happy to text photos of remaining corals as well. Will also make deliveries in certain cases (see under "Specials" below). Cash or Paypal please.

• Buy corals in bundles to receive a discount: 3-5 corals, 10% discount; 6-10 corals: 15% discount; 11-19 corals 20% discount; 20+ corals, 25% discount
• Buy 3 or more and I’ll also deliver within a 60 minute radius of Southpoint Durham/Triangle.
• Buy $300 worth of corals/fish, and I’ll deliver within a 2-hour radius (pending PayPal payment).

See a brief video showing a variety of the corals/fish here:

FISH (will hold upon sale and capture after all or most corals are sold; exception may be premium snowflake clowns which I may be able to catch prior to a tear-down)

Premium ORA Snowflake Clowns (bonded pair) $250
-Notes: Premium snowflake clowns are identified by the light blue scales/markings adjacent to their bars. The female of the pair has acquired her markings while the male’s markings are still developing. These two adore hosting in the pink/blue xenia in my tank.

Foxface rabbit $40 SALE PENDING
-Notes: Peaceful community member, spends entire day picking at algae on rocks, glass, etc, brings vibrant yellow color to tank

Blue tang $30 SALE PENDING
-Notes: Shy but active, this fish “rescue” that has healed up nicely after coming to me from an acquaintance’s neglected tank a few years back. Has great coloration and eats voraciously. More important than price, I want to ensure this beautiful fish finds a good home. Peaceful and gets along with all others. Does best in tanks over 125g.

Purple dottyback/pseudochromis $15
-Notes: Reclusive but active swimmer, especially with other fish in the tank. May not be trustworthy with ornamental shrimp and may become aggressive with any fish smaller than him. Beautiful bright orchid coloration.
