That means these items either have an increased level of care required, are very difficult to ship, or are more difficult to acclimate to the home aquarium environement. Therefore all below are recommended only for the expert marine aquarist, zoo, or research institution. These items have no guarantee offered or implied.Please order these items at your risk as we recommend Advanced Aquarist Species be left for the experts and not for the home aquarist unless he or she is very comfortable with advanced species. But in any and all cases they do not carry any guarantee and if they arrive dead or die after arrival there will not be credit issued.
