The Picks

Earlier this week, President Obama announced the creation of the world's largest marine sanctuary. It encompasses five US controlled Island and Atolls in the Central Pacific. Effectively, this is an expansion of three of the already existing protected areas. Previously the areas protected were 50 miles off shore of the islands, are being expanded to 200 miles off shore. The total protected area will now be roughly 3x the size of the State of California. Commercial fishing, dumping and mining will be off limits in the preserve. Recreational fishing and boating will still be allowed. QM sources none of our stock from these areas.

We have an unbelievable selection of fish right now, among these there is a wide variety of MAC Certified Butterflies from our Short Supply Chain in Fiji. A full range of sizes all in spectacular condition. If you are looking for something on the rare / unusual / very high end scope of things, we also have a very limited number of Gem Tangs (Zebrasoma gemmatum) available. Call your sales manager, and do it quick.

Over in inverts we have a really cool selection of Encrusting Montiporas from one of our Central Pacific SSCs. We have a great variety of colors and sizes here and all of them are in brilliant shape. There is also an amazing selection of anemones here from Ritteri (Heteractis magnifica) to Orange Tube Anemones (Cerianthus sp.) and everything in between.
