Retired Limited/Auctioned Editions are organisms that Reeffarmers.com
has decided to stop distributing as Limited/Auctioned Editions. There are a variety of
factors that determine when and if an organism gets retired from distribution.
These factors include in order of importance: the health of parent colony;
its distribution demand; the overall availability of the organism to the captive
US market; the difficulty aquarists have in maintaining the organism; the
difficulty aquarists have in maintaining the organisms pigmentation or
growth morphology: the number of new exotic species waiting to enter our
Limited Edition Distribution channel; the pigmentation quality of the coral; and
the overall uniqueness of the organism.
