How can anybody in business sell a sunburst for $35 when that fish wholsales for $33 is beyond me. Selling it for $60 as AV were selling them is still cheap but I guess if you move them they wont die in your tanks and take a loss. Guys remember cheap is always expensive at the end.

Then why do his coral tanks look full of algy
Helpers spent time with 3 kids and a girl covering her nose cuz of the smell and could not just answe a question about price on coral in tank next to him
He did not have to move to see coral just was more concerned with kids looking at fish after they said they did not have a tank yet
Just did not get a good feeling there

Ralph cuts out the whole seller aka the middle man he deals direct
He has held fish for me for a week and I have only had one issue with a fish I have bought and he took care of me
I don't care where you buy from I always say get to know all the people where you shop at workers up to owners it will only benefit you

the sunburst wont die in your tank inless your tank is compatible for them. We have 1 sunburst and 4 borbonius anthias from max reef. there live stock is always good priced and didnt have a problem ever besides one time. Thats cause not all wholesale is 33$, when you buy bulk and a large amount you get it for cheaper, so lets say hes getting them for 10-15$ a piece he bought 20 of them, there all in other peoples tanks by the end of the day. Quick and easy and perfect stock.
