Tiny Centropyge joculators at Global Reef Supply

Global Reef SupplyWhen people think of aquatic wholesalers the first city to come to mind is generally Los Angeles. While there is literally an entire street full of them there, we do have some great wholesalers in the midwest. One of my go-to wholesalers is Global Reef Supply just outside of Chicago, which is staffed by some of the most knowledgeable, hardworking and honest people in the industry. While mainly providing an incredible selection of Australian and Indonesian corals, every so often they have other offerings, one which recently piqued my angelfish nut interest with the incredible Centropyge joculator. Not only were all of these fish in perfect health, they were the tiniest specimens these eyes have ever borne witness to.

Unfortunately I wasn’t prepared with my camera, but I did take a video of these little cuties. Note my thumbnail in video is 3/4″ wide for size reference. Most were already sold, but if you act fast you may still get your hands on one of the more elusive angelfish in the industry. If you’re a hobbyist make sure to tell your LFS or favorite supplier to get in contact with Global Reef Supply as these guys are wholesale only.
