A few popular picks are back in stock, one of which is Pom Pom Crabs. 🦀 These crustaceans clip off parts of anemones which are then used for gathering food and warding off potential predators. 🐙 There are also a few more Tiger Pistol Shrimp and Gobies, which you can never have enough of. However nothing can compare to how cute it was to watch the Frilly Sea Hare lick the tank wall with his itty bitty radula ( basically a tongue made out of tiny teeth👅) and do what looked to be slow spin-outs on the glass. 🏎 As always, the whole list of newest arrivals is below.

New Arrivals Plants

New plants! 04/13/23

Experts say it’s too early to start planting a garden, but there is never a bad time to add plants to your aquarium. We have lots of new plants (maybe too many), some new to Forest Lake Pets. Homlomena Sekadau South is a rare plant that looks like a Crypt but grows like Bucephalandra. Lagenandra Meeboldii Red is much the same with broad dark red leaves. If you’re looking for something with quicker growth, we’ve got you covered; Pogostemon, Parrot Feather and Rotala are great stem plants that keep on growing.

P.S. Don’t miss out on some great plant deals, just look for the Orange Tags!

It’s almost time for spring cleaning and shrimp are the perfect helpers! 🧹 A great choice would be Peppermint Shrimp as they help clean up nuisance Aiptasia anemones within your aquarium and accidental left over food. 🦐 The best part about shrimp or gobies is there is so many different kinds that make it possible to customize your tank to how you want it to look and function. We would also like to put out a final reminder on our huge clownfish sale that includes 30+ fish, and there is also a sale for hammer coral. 🔨 For the small list of this week’s arrivals check the categories below.
