    Good basic info on three very cool fish . . .

    And a great idea for a video series!

    Nice to get a peek into Quality Marines' facility, as well.

    Does Quality Marine sell to the public or just wholesale to LFS?

    Thanks for the compliments and I am stoked to get this series going. Any suggestions for future fish to feature?

    I say, if the tank is large enough, do it! Crosshatch Triggerfish are really stunning.

    They do not offer sale to the public but are one of the largest fish and coral wholesale companies in the US with customers all over the world! Contact your local fish store or inquire directly to find a store in your area with Quality Marine livestock.

    Gorgeous Tank man, great work! Cleaner shrimp are always a hoot when you stick your hand in the tank, makes me laugh everytime.

    Hey, Robert!

    I'd suggest fish - like the triggers - where you can impart some useful information, or bust a myth, such as "all damsels are the spawn of Satan", "Which angelfish are the most reef-safe", or "All parrotfish eat live coral and poop beaches". Other great topics might include fish that are _very_ tempting, such as mandarins, butterflies or Achilles tangs, and what needs to happen in order for those fish to be cared for appropriately.

    Another great group to feature would be the increasing number of fish that are being captive-bred.

    Just a few off the top . . .

    Thanks for all the suggestions, these are some unique ideas. I think my next will be Dragonets because of the popularity and some of the misconception about feeding. I also really like the idea of "Sustainable/Captive-Bred Reef Tank Fish". Keep the ideas coming!

    I believe Quality Marine is Live Aquaria. Or, vice versa

    I think the biggest thing for me would be a video that basically reads the description on liveaquaria. One of the first things I do when I see a fish I like is look it up on there and go to YouTube. The issue is that not much is on YouTube. There is a severe lack of information vids for individual fish.

    I think your next idea is great to talk about dragonets.

    Specific fish I'd like to see are the different lions.

    Thanks for watching and I think this will be a great video series to really help out the aquarium community.
