I would avoid this supplier if this is the case. I was a bit excited looking that the photo of their "common" as it does look like a vulgaris (usually "common" ends up being O. briareus when coming from FL. Even from my trusted supplier in the Keys, I request to pay extra for more water weight, I know they use O2 in packing and they place the animals in drilled out plastic jars to keep them safe in shipping.
What company do you use?

I use a small collector in the Keys, KP Aquatics. They have a waiting list you can use but often there is a long wait. I only had to wait 2 weeks until they happened upon ET but generally, they only find them when they collect their live rock and much of it was buried during the last hurricane.
