    It takes a long long time to build a coral reef. Step by step the reefs survive on partnerships. And the most important partners are you and I.

    Chris is correct, its mainly the shipping that brings these fish to their end if im not mistaken somewhere around 80% die before and during shipping to the LFS, then about 50% of the ones that live long enough to make it to the LFS die which leaves only 10% remaining, then they get sold and who knows the percentage of those that die. If you can get lucky and get a good specimen and one that will accept prepared foods your pretty fortunate. However once established they are fairly hardy based on my understanding.
