The Picks

If you are looking for the next hot item on everyones must have list you are going to have to be a pioneer. That means stepping outside of your normal ordering parameters because being a pioneer means getting there in advance of the demand. I am not saying you should abandon the bread and butter ordering that keeps the new customers returning, but I am saying that you should be adding a new item or two to every order. It is this influx of new and different species that stimulates the imagination of the veteran hobbyist.

Right now, the QM stock list has a great selection of todays hot thing, but tomorrows new hotness is almost assuredly on this list as well. All you need to do is try out a new item or two, and youll find it.


For those of you looking for that unknown item, this week you should really check out the Oulophyllia Coral (Oulophyllia sp.). These are pretty straight forward to keep and offer absolutely stunning colors and a unique shape. Also on the invert side of the house there is some very nice Montastrea Corals (Montastrea sp.) that are in really amazing shape. We have a good variety of sizes and colorations.

On the fish side of the building, there is some amazing Powder Blue Tangs (Acanthurus leucosternon) in stock right now. We get these from on of our best Short Supply Chains, and the quality of the animal is evident. These are in perfect shape. Also fish related, you would be remiss if you didn't think about Aquacultured Hi Fin Snappers (Symphorichthys spilurus). Yes, yet another aquacultured offering and these are pretty amazing looking. Definitely something different for that large aquariumed customer of yours.
