Winter Weather is here and brutal. Feel free to order, but know that shipments may be delayed as we work around weather.

Equetus lanceolatus “Jackknife Fish”

$99.00

This is not your ordinary, typical Jackknife Fish – these are captive-bred Jackknife Fish, Equetus lanceolatus! That means they’re not delicate, they’re far less likely to bring in disease, and they’re far more eager to eat standard aquarium fare like pellet feeds! This is the kind of captive-bred offering that strongly deserves support, lest we see these evaporate into the past (hey, remember when you could get a captive-bred Jackknife Fish? Boy…those were the days…). Learn more below:

Description

This is not your ordinary, typical Jackknife Fish – these are captive-bred Jackknife Fish, Equetus lanceolatus! That means they’re not delicate, they’re far less likely to bring in disease, and they’re far more eager to eat standard aquarium fare like pellet feeds! This is the kind of captive-bred offering that strongly deserves support, lest we see these evaporate into the past (hey, remember when you could get a captive-bred Jackknife Fish? Boy…those were the days…).

The last time they were in stock, they were large (nearly 6″) fish; this time they are the perfect, juvenile size (around 2″) where you can start ’em small and watch them grow. Turns out Jackknifes aren’t exactly nice to each other in confined spaces, so I might recommend only one per tank. They’re ‘reef safe’ in so much as they’re not going to eat your corals, but small inverts or tiny fish might be fair game.
