With more than 35 years in business, Quality Marine continues to provide the aquarium industry with the highest quality and widest selection of marine fish and invertebrates. Nearly all of the aquariums at its state-of-the-art facility are individually equipped with independent fill and drain systems allowing thousands of individual fish to have their own sterilized water supply, minimizing the potential for the spread of parasites and other water-borne pathogens. In addition, Quality Marine acclimates all specimens from ocean water to synthetic seawater as a service to retailers and their customers. Finally, each specimen is acclimated, tanked, rested and fed prior to shipping and is individually screened numerous times before it is packed. More information is available at www.qualitymarine.com
