Best way to get a specific fish?? (Yasha or Flaming Prawn Goby)


Recommended Posts

What is the best way to find a specific fish?  Local, wait until they happen to get one?  I see there's sites to order from online but by mail seems dicey....  Don't have a huge tank so I have to be particular.   What's the best practice here....

Personally I will just ask my local fishstore to order one for me. I have heard some good things about some online places but I always prefer seeing a fish in person and seeing it eat before I take it home and you can't get that with an online store. Jeff at Cuttlefish has always been great for me.

Perfect.  I'm on the west side out in Hillsboro so not a bad drive, I drove over there last week to look around.

Awww, you're in luck Paradise Corals is right next to you now too and Mr. Bret is a long standing forum member here as well. I'm sure he could order you one as well. My experience with Yasha's is they are extremely shy. I would recommend you QT them as well if you can. I had one that I didn't see for 2 weeks in a QT tank and thought it was dead but it just hid in the sand that long and it was the only fish in QT I have seen some healthy specimens at Jeff's in the past. They are amazing and worth trying to pair with a pistol shrimp. :)
