Bob's Picks

This week kicks off the start to the holiday season and I would like to remind all of our clients that we will be operating on a reduced shipping schedule in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. We will be shipping as usual on Monday and Tuesday, but as a result of the compressed week, we do suggest that you submit your order as early as possible so that we can make sure we get to everyones orders and get them out on time. Also, for those of you who are wanting to receive shipments on Thanksgiving Day via air cargo, we will have our packing crew available to pack out orders on Wednesday. We are bringing in shipments as regularly scheduled so we will have a full inventory available.

Speaking for the rest of the QM team, we are very thankful to have so many wonderful customers to support Quality Marine and the principles we stand for. I hope that all of you have an enjoyable, well deserved rest on Thanksgiving Day and get the opportunity to spend the day with loved ones.


This week we have an excellent selection of Juvenile Chevron Tangs (Ctenochaetus hawaiiensis) that are in great condition and showing spectacular juvenile coloration.

From our Short Supply Chain vendor in Fiji, we have a really good supply of Orange Kleini Butterflies (Chaetodon kleini). These are always good performers for us in house, and this batch is no exception. All are fat and happy. If you are looking for aiptasia control, look no further than these.

On the more limited / exclusive front, we have a small number of larger Female Crosshatch Triggers (Xanthichthys mento) in stock. These are eating anything you put in front of them. As far as triggers go, you'll have a hard time finding cooler, rarer ones.

We have a good supply of Blue Linckia Starfish (Linckia laevigata) here right now that are super healthy and brilliant blue.

Long Tentacle Green Plate Corals (Heliofungia actiniformis) are always cool and are good sellers. We have a limited supply of them right now that are truly exceptional. Some have multicolor tentacles, others have brightly striped bases. Order a couple and rest assured that something cool is coming.

Finally, QM has an amazing selection of Liverock. Be sure to talk to your sales rep about our most recent pricing and stocklist.
