Bob's Picks

With this weeks rapidly and unpredictable changing weather across the country its a good time to remind all of our clients that your input to our Customer Service Representatives is invaluable. Just last week Los Angeles was in the middle of a record heat wave requiring cool packs for the majority of our shipments. Now this week we are breaking out the heat packs due to the cold snap and some of the close to freezing temperatures our shipments are experiencing. We rely on various National weather reports found on the web to base our decision on what each shipment needs, but it is always best when we get the information firsthand. Another aspect that would prove to be of immense assistance to us would be for our customers to provide a brief report of arrival water quality parameters measuring temperature, pH and salinity. Notation of water clarity would be helpful as well. Just as every fish or piece of coral is individual, every shipment has its own nuances as well. The more information we have, the better able we are to serve your needs and to ensure your shipment arrives in excellent condition.


We released some Reefhab Green Chalice Frags (Echinophyllia sp) that are totally awesomesauce. Don't let the "green" moniker fool you, these are showing some pretty cool patterns in more than just green.

We just got a shipment of Small Favia Brain Coral Colonies (Favia sp) that are a really intriguing variety of colors. These are in great health and we have a limited selection.

Also on the limited front, we have a very few Harlequin Shrimp Pairs (Hymenocera sp). They rarely come paired up, so don't miss this opportunity to grab these for that desktop display you've been thinking about.

From our Short Supply Chain in Fiji, we have an amazing selection of MAC Coral Beauty Angels (Centropyge bispinosus). The coloration on the MAC, SSC Beauties has to be seen to be believed. These are in the "usual SSC amazing" shape.

We have a great selection of Cultured Clownfish in stock, and the Cultured True Black Ocellaris (Amphiprion ocellaris) are really standing out because of their size and robustness. Always ask your rep about what other cultured items we have in stock as we have an impressive selection.

On the rarer fish side, we have just a couple Candy Basslets (Liopropoma carmabi) and they are glowing neon colors. They are eating well and in great health, if you have always wanted one, this is the time to get one.
