The Picks

Right now, we have an incredible diversity of stock on hand, and several extremely unique items for you to peruse. We have MAJOR surprises coming in this week, so do not hesitate to call your Account Manager. This amazing stock is even more noteworthy when you consider that we are in the midst of Ramadan, which traditionally has a major impact on the flow of marine specimens. The peak of this impact usually happens during the celebration of Eid al Fitr (which happens on Tuesday, July 29th this year) and though this holiday marks the end of Ramadan, supply can still be impacted for a couple weeks afterwards. In addition, collection conditions throughout much of the tropical Pacific are very bad.

As always, we are working hard to maintain our standards of quality and variety regardless of season and holidays. Literally decades of work of finding, working with, improving (and sometimes eliminating) new sources gives QM the diverse portfolio of trusted supply lines that allows us to work through these types of disruptions with minimal, if any disruptions for you.

In lieu of a large group of individual picks, I would be remiss if I didn't tell you to call your Account Manager asap. There is a ton of amazing things here, like tiny Black Longnose Tangs (Zebrasoma rostratum). We also have a variety of aquacultured items, some of which have never been seen before in North America, like Aquacultured Scribbled Angels (Chaetodontoplus duboulayi) or Tiger Batfish. There is also a couple surprise items coming this week. I am not even going to talk about them, just call that Account Manager, you'll be happy you did.
