The Picks

If you haven't noticed from all the decor changes around your towns, the shopping season has descended upon us, Black Friday is just around the corner, and people have started planning gifts. This is the time of year to ensure that you have enough of the beginner friendly standards to supply this demand as it increases. Nothing grabs sales this time of year like a brilliant showroom, so get your tanks sparkling and well stocked to provide fuel for the holiday gift imagination. Also, keep in mind that we will have a shortened shipping window the week of November 20th, so be sure to talk to your Account Manager this coming week and avoid the last minute holiday rush.


There is a really great selection of Passer Angels (Holacanthus passer) here right now, in a full range of sizes from a very nice medium all the way up to gorgeous show size 100s. All of them are in brilliant condition, with good weight, eating and healthy. If you are looking for something a little bit different, there is a small selection of Aquacultured Juvenile Pinnatus Batfish (Platax pinnatus) as well. Quantity is limited on these, so get your order in quick if you are interested.

On the invertebrate side of the house the selection of Australian corals is really top flight. There are gorgeous, healthy Scolys, Acan colonies, and a wide variety of Euphyllias to choose from. You'll want to ask your account manager about this. As far as aquacultured inverts, order up some of the A/C Green Clove Polyps (Clavularia sp.). It's a simple coral that you might otherwise overlook, but this batch has superb disc coverage and excellent polyp extention. Try a couple out.
