The Picks

Supporting Short Supply Chain (SSC) collectors and vendors makes for a healthier, higher quality animal. In most cases animals are collected where there isnt much competition from other fishermen, enabling those fishers to better manage their collection sites and prevent overharvesting. With shorter transit times and less time away from food, animals adapt more readily to a captive environment. At Quality Marine we try to utilize SSC sources wherever possible. Ultimately these specimens will not only lead to a more successful aquarist but are also simply a more sustainable way to collect. We urge all our customers and hobbyists alike to support these SSC initiatives as they promote a bright future for our hobby.


On the fish side of the house, we have brilliant Fairy Wrasses (Cirrhilabrus sp) from around the world, including multiple Short Supply Chains. Take some time this week to peruse the stocklist for these swimming gems. We also have some very nice Naso Tangs (Naso sp) in a good range of sizes and colorations. These always acclimate faster in groups, so especially when ordering small ones, get them in groups of at least 3.

On the invert side of things, we have some absolutely stunning Rose Bubble Anemones (Entacmaea quadricolor). These are really worth fussing over. We also have a very good selection of Blood / Fire Shrimp (Lysmata debelius). These are very healthy, deep red and a perfect size. Stock up right now.
