    If anyone comes across corals or inverts from him, please do not purchase from him. He is a very irresponsible vendor. He does not have a website or store, however he shows up at frag shows, such as macna and mamax.

    After macna and mamax (I attended the latter as a vendor and a customer) he was seen throwing away livestock he did not sell. That's right. 20 or so linkia starfish and probably 75 coral colonies, alive, were thrown into a dumpster outside the warehouse. He seemed to have no problem doing this either. Needless to say he's been banned from both of these venues, but I just want to get the word out on this complete disregard for life.

    How did he get them there? Couldn't he have just taken them back where they came from?

    all I know is he has no fish tanks, so nowhere to bring them back to, which is why he throws them away.

    Why wouldnt u just give them away for free at the end? Seems like people would love that, or put them in the garbage and have people hate you. Idiot.

    Are you sure he was tossing out "live" livestock and not his dead loss?

    Well I imagine giving them away would hurt his business. Everyone would wait til the end of the show for him to give his livestock away.
    Most of it all was alive as the show was drawing to its end. He would "pull" anything that died during the show. Regardless, at the end of the show he still had plenty livestock, and he left the show with nothing but his holding tanks.
