Entacmaea quadricolor (Ruppell & Leuckart 1828), the Bubble-Tip or Bulb-Tentacle Sea Anemone. Family Actiniidae. This is historically the hardiest of large, naturally symbiotic Clownfish anemones for aquarium use... many more specimens are collected and received in tact, in reasonably good health from the wild to distributors. And more and more folks are offering very hardy "fragged" individuals that are asexual cloned aquacultured specimens. Here in the Red Sea.
The Sling-Jaw Wrasse, Epibulus insidiator (Pallas, 1770) is showing up more and more in the industry, and is a real winner looks-wise, though I'll still have to rate it a moderate score (2) in historical hardiness. Below: Juvenile with distinctive markings, females are golden yellow over-all, while males are blackish in the back, pale on the face, with an orange-brown "coat" on their back. To fourteen inches total length. Indo-Pacific. Near adult, terminal phase individual in the Red Sea, 08.
Epinephelus fasciatus (Forsskal 1775), the Blacktip Grouper. You might think "fasciated" might be a better common name for this Bass, until seeing how changeable its coloring is in the wild. Indo-Pacific. to sixteen inches maximum length. Gulf of Aqaba, Red Sea.  
Epinephelus fuscoguttatus (Forsskal 1775), the Brown-Mottled Grouper. To more than thirty inches in length. A gentle behemoth that is occasionally "accidentally" collected for the trade. A shy species for getting so large. Red Sea.
