Bob's Picks

Over the past few years Quality Marine has been hard at work trying to support as many aquaculture and mariculture projects as possible and the result has been amazing. Aside from the many species and color variants of clownfish we routinely have in stock, we also have a good selection of cultured seahorses, gobies, blennies, cardinalfish, shrimp and even angelfish now.

In addition to our Aquacultured fish we have an impressive offering of maricultured hard and soft corals. Many of the farms are now starting to bear the fruit of their LPS mariculture projects and it is incredible how much progress has been made in this area. What makes this all the more exciting is the possibility of having a consistent supply of some really outstanding color variants that in the past were previously only available to whomever was fortunate enough to get the specimen first.

We have deep inventory on excellent quality Aquacultured Banggai Cardinals (Pterapogon kauderni) available all of the time along with some very excellent quality Aquacultured Ocellaris Clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris) . Speaking of Ocellaris Clownfish we have a great supply of some of the largest aquacultured clownfish I have ever seen so be sure to check them out. In addition, there is also a beautiful selection of designer aquacultured fish in stock like Picassos, and Black Ice variants. Ask your sales rep.

Also on the aquacultured front, we have an excellent supply of Aquacultured Eye of Jabba Zoanthids (Zoanthid sp) that have excellent coverage and coloration.

On the rarer front, we have several nice sized, very colorful Blue Line Triggers (Pseudobalistes fuscus). Now is the season for getting very small ones as well and we do have a few small available, which is rare. The juvenile coloration is much different, but they grow into those adult colors pretty quickly.

For the person who just has to have something different, we have some gorgeously vibrant Peacock Mantis Shrimp (Odontodactylus scyllarus) in a good range of sizes and colorations. All of them are eating everything we show them.
