The Picks

The heat of summer sometimes means doing a little extra to tempt customers. Competing with barbecues & vacations can be difficult, but it is not an impossible task. Whatever you do, don't let stock levels fall or customers won't have a reason to come in. Instead, spend time engaging customers on social media and use all those outlets to promote events. Hold your own barbecue, run a raffle, give away water with a purchase; go the extra mile to make sure your's is the shop they make time for. We'll make sure that we maintain our usual high quality, deep stocklist, so you can do the same.


We have an excellent batch of Female Tiger Angels (Genicanthus semifasciatus) that are just the "special item" you are looking for. This last week we also brought in an outstanding shipment of Juvenile Chevron Tangs (Ctenochaetus hawaiiensis) from one of our Central Pacific SSCs that are just the right size, in perfect shape with unbelievable colors. These always move quickly here and will certainly garner attention in your shop.

On the invert side of the house, we have some Assorted Green Carpet Anemones (Stichodactyla sp) that are in great shape. These don't sound like something all that different, but put under some good lighting they really pop. Be sure to give these enough food, and don't put them under too much light. Add a designer perc or two then sit back and watch the commotion people make. We also have another huge shipment of Aussie Corals that you should know about; Acropora, Scolymia, Acan Lords, and more. Definitely give your Account Manager a call about this, and don't wait to peruse our WYSIWYG.
