The Picks

One of the advantages we have here at Quality Marine is what is quite possibly the most state of the art wholesale marine fish holding facility in North America. Water in the centralized holding systems is sterilized with over 12 kilowatts of quartz-shielded ultraviolet sterilizers, and a large bank of proprietary commercial protein skimmers and high output ozone generators. We combined this with highly efficient mechanical and biological filtration engineered specifically for our applications. Nearly the entire place is equipped with independent fill and drain systems allowing thousands of individual fish, and some groups to have their own sterilized water supply. The point is when you buy a fish from us, we spared no expense in taking care of it. We believe this is the right way to do this and it definitely shows in the product.

In stock today, we have an incredible selection of Juvenile Chevron Tangs (Ctenochaetus hawaiiensis), that are in perfect shape and all in the stupendously brilliant juvenile coloration. Sticking with that cleaner-fish theme, we have an excellent supply of Foxface Rabbitfish (Siganus vulpinus) in perfect smaller sizes. These seem to do best when kept in small groups, so I recommend buying them 3 or 5 at a time.

On the invert side of the house, we have a great supply of Skunk Cleaner Shrimp (Lysmata amboinensis) and who doesn't need skunk cleaners? This is the right time of year to stock up. Get that done. Also in inverts, the Aquacultured Super Red Mushroom Corals (Actinodiscus sp) that we just got in are stunning with near perfect coverage, metallic highlights and iridescent colors.
