Everyone here at QM wishes you a safe, happy, and profitable new year. Here is our planned shipping schedule:

Monday December 30 all shipment methods available
Tuesday December 31 & Wednesday January 1 no shipping

We do have shipments arriving so we can still provide our wide inventory to select from. Thank you for your continued support in 2013 and we look forward to being of service to you in 2014!


From our MAC certified Short Supply Chain (SSC) in Fiji the Pinstriped Wrasse (Halichoeres melanurus) deserve a look. Always a great item from this source, this weeks shipment is outstanding. Some are still sporting their juvenile coloration. The health is excellent and the handling from point of collection to our facility is simply the best.

Just in from Hawaii (even with the massive January surf) we have a prime selection of Chevron Tangs (Ctenochaetus hawaiiensis) in all of their juvenile coloration glory. A highly desirable detrivore, this surgeonfish would make a welcome addition to any reef display.

The Splendid Pseudochromis (Manonichthys splendens) that we are currently receiving from Bali are beautiful and are feeding hungrily. Though they can be pugnacious at times, they surely would make a striking centerpiece for a nano aquarium.

On the Mariculture side from Indonesia we have Cultured Green Clove Polyps (Clavularia sp.) that rival any wild colony in coloration plus they are aggressively priced, very hardy, and absolutely environmentally conscious.

The Conehead Snail (Astaea tecta) from our exclusive Florida collector are simply super and are covered in coralline algae. Always a great value from this source.

We have an absolutely stellar collection of Cook Island Aquacultured Maxima Clams (Tridacna maxima). The Cooks has some of the, if not the best genetic lines for Maximas and it shows. These are in great condition with mind blowing patterns.
