The Bluestripe Snapper (Lutjanus kasmira), also known as the Blueline Sea Perch, is a colorfish found among the reefs and open stretches of the Indo-Pacific Ocean. They have a golden-yellow body with four horizontal, blue stripes. They prefer to be in schools, and require plenty of room to swim; this being said, they should not be housed in an aquarium with less than 300 gallons. Though not a threat to corals, they are typically kept in fish only systems, as they would consume any crustacean in a reef. They should be fed carnivorous preparations, including mysis, krill, silversides and crab. Given their large mouth and predatory tendencies, they should not be housed with smaller reef fish, such as Damsels or Chromis. 

I recently bought a few fish along with a couple of other live stock items. They arrived alive and healthy. It has been a week all are doing great and eating. I look forward to my next purchase
