  1. To all of our friends and customers, When Tina and I opened the Marine Scene 20 years ago, our goal was to create an outstanding retail and service business providing top quality products and services. I feel very confident in affirming that we did in fact reach those goals. At some point in the future we have plans to retire out of the area. That involves a great deal of planning, especially given the nature of owning this business and the building in which it resides. I have entertained numerous scenarios including the sale of the retail business to an interested party, closing the retail and focusing specifically on service and or shifting to a limited hour’s retail operation. One of the most significant aspects of this entire process is developing a smooth transition and sale of the business to Bobby Haas who has demonstrated incredible loyalty and has effectively become my most trusted confidant. Bobby has earned the right to carry the torch forward and will do so with great results. With the upcoming departure of two full time employees, we have decided that the time is perfect to shift to a new plan of operation. That plan is to become a service oriented business during the week and focus on a limited hour’s retail operation. We will continue to maintain the high standards of quality of product and service we are known for albeit fewer days per week. Effective the week of May 16, 2016 we will shift our retail hours to Fridays from 10 -7 and Saturdays from 10 -6. During this transition you will see some physical changes to the facility as we begin to streamline our inventory and holding systems to facilitate an easier and less labor intensive operation. This transition will allow us to continue to serve our loyal retail clientele with the same level of expertise and quality all the while allowing us to focus on transitioning myself out of the operation. I feel this is a great balance and want to thank you in advance for your continued patronage. Tom White

  8. Greetings Fish Friends! Some exciting new animals in the store this week! In our Tuesday shipment we brought in some Purple Pygmy Anthias, a Sandhopper Blenny (also called the Red Stripe Sand Perch), a Bluefin Watchman Goby, and two Pink and Yellow Cucumbers! Along with those newbies, today we unloaded a shipment from ORA with some awesome new captive bred fish! Come in to check out the Blood Orange Clown, a mix of the Ocellaris and Maroon clownfish, and the Black Neon Dottyback, the hybrid of the Neon and Springeri dottybacks! We also have Black Snowflake clowns, Marshal Island Hydnophora frags, two large Deresa clams, and much more! Thanks for reading, see you this weekend! The Marine Scene Staff FEATURED ANIMALS Sandhopper Blenny Also called the Redspot Sand Perch, these fish are active and can do well in tanks as small as 30 gallons. They're generally non aggressive with other species of fish and are coral safe! "Stardust People Eater" Palythoas A cool palythoa with purple colors and covered with light speckles, giving it the "stardusted" look! Brian is in love with this colony and already got a couple polyps from it for his tank! Pink and Yellow Cucumber These colorful sea cucumbers stay up on the glass or rock, extending their feeder tentacles to catch small particulates from the water. They like a variety of small foods like oyster feast, cyclo-peez, and particulates left over from general tank feedings. OTHER GOODIES Purple Pygmy Anthias A small and bright Anthias that comes in a mix of purple, pink, and golden colors. These anthias can do better in small systems than their relatives like the Lyretail or Bartlett's Anthias ORA Blood Orange Clownfish A new fish from ORA! This clownfish is a hybrid of the Ocellaris Clown and the Marroon Clown! It has the large fins of the marroon and a deep orange body with a the bold white stripes of an ocellaris clown. ORA Black Neon Dottyback A hybrid of the Neon and Springeri dottybacks, the base coloring of this fish can change from jet black to rust, depending on it's mood and environment.

  9. Greetings to all of our Fishy Friends! We hope everyone enjoyed their long holiday weekend! We got in a large shipment of over 60 fish in this week, so lots to see when you come by! A kind farewell to Melissa. After almost 10 years of dedication and commitment to The Marine Scene, Melissa has chosen to seek out new adventures and explore new opportunities. She has been a wonderful asset to this company and will be missed by all of us here and by many of our loyal customers whom she has so pleasantly and expertly served for so many years. We wish her well and congratulate her on her tireless loyalty and generous contribution to the past success of this company. Please stop by and say goodbye and wish her well. Her last day is September 13, 2012. We are Hiring! Handyman: We are looking for a handyman to help with some repairs and fix-up around the store. We need someone dependable and timely as most repairs will be done on Mondays. Please contact Tom. ~The Marine Scene Team TMS News Something new that made its way to us this week is the Spanish Hogfish. This is a colorful addition to any fish only aquarium. You will need a BIG tank since these guys can grow to be about 16 inches long! We would suggest a tank of at least 180 gallons with ample swimming room. If you want a schooling fish, we have a good selection in stock! Currently available is a cute school of Bangaii Cardinalfish, trio of Lyretail Anthias, and a bunch of very colorful Firefish. The trio of Lyretail Anthias will add a lot of color and movement to your tank, while the Firefish and Cardinalfish will be more stationary schoolers. Lots of wrasse to choose from this week! We got in some McCosker's Wrasse, a very curious and sociable Labouti Wrasse, and Yellow Coris Wrasse just to name a few! The McCosker's Wrasse are great flasher wrasses that do not get very big, so nothing smaller than a 30 gallon tank will be fine for them. The Labouti and Yellow Coris Wrasse should be in tanks of 90 gallons or more. Plenty of invertebrates arrived this week too! Come in and pick up a hungry Skunk Cleaner Shrimp to clean up all of your fish or maybe a gathering of Sexy Shrimp (or both!). Blue Globe Urchins are back in stock as well as Halloween Hermits! Both of these neat critters are excellent algae eaters so if you are having an issue, why not try one! Something for everyone here at The Marine Scene this weekend! Drop by and see what's for you! For a full list of our available fish and inverts, view our up-to-date availability on our website. Check Out What's Available Now! What's On Sale Huge Coral Clearance! Take 25% off the regular price of each coral in our SPS coral sale tank! We have a great selection of frags and colonies including Acropora, Montipora, Pavona, Pocillopora, ORA frags and lots more! (25% off SPS coral tank sale expires Saturday, September 8, 2012) After getting a new SPS coral, why not get something to help your new coral thrive! 50% off Marc Weiss Coral Vital and Reef Vital DNA! Coral Vital is great for helping coral polyps to open up and to enhance your corals natural color while Reef Vital DNA will help promote coral polyp regeneration and growth. (while supplies last) To ensure a healthy and thriving tank, it is a good idea to feed corals about twice a week; therefore Reef Roids and Golden Pearls are on sale! Reef Roids is now $34.99 and Golden Pearls is now $9.99. Both are a dry powder that will easily dissolve in your tank water; fish will also enjoy snacking on this food! (expires 09/11/12) Clearance items at closeout prices! Check out our flyer for Halide Bulbs, LED's, Koralia Controllable Pumps, Micro Chillers and other accessories. (while supplies last) Did You Know? Did you know there are plenty of corals available that are good choices for beginners? Some of these corals don't even require intense lighting. Mushrooms and Zoanthid Polyps are very hardy and colorful corals that do well in most marine lighting conditions. Also good options for a beginning "reefers" are Star Polyps, Colt Corals, Xenia, Toadstools, Devils Hands and even some hard corals like Trumpets, Torch and Brain corals. If you are thinking about venturing into the world of reef-keeping consider these corals first and you will probably have a good chance of success. Don't let coral keeping intimidate you, in many cases they are easier to keep than the fish!
  10. Greetings Fish Friends! Wow, it's hard to believe that August is coming to a close already! We at The Marine Scene wish everyone a happy Labor Day weekend and hope to see you soon! We are Hiring! Handyman: We are looking for a handyman to help with some repairs and fix-up around the store. We need someone dependable and timely as most repairs will be done on Mondays.

These little guys can be over looked in larger systems but add lots of personality to smaller tanks. Instock currently is an itty bitty Green Banded Goby, a cute Yellow Clown Goby, and a very active Red Headed Goby. Each of them are eating like little pigs and are oh-so-cute! For all of you out there with larger aquariums, we have plenty for you as well! We have lots of Tangs available including some gorgous Powder Blue Tangs. Finally back instock are Midas Blennies! These tangarine colored fish with blue eyes are always a joy to watch because they are active and have so much personality. Sexy Anemone Shrimp are instock as well. We currently have them housed with our small Maxi-Mini Anemones, which they are starting to host in! These little shrimps will be a fine addition to any sized tank and will host in almost any anemone or coral (provided as long as there are no clownfish already hosting in your anemone). Plenty of coral are available and very eager to come home with you! If you have seen the tiny orange Plate Coral in our nano tank by the registars and wanted one of your very own, you are in luck! We have a couple of small orange Plate Corals for sale. They are about one inch in diameter and a very bright orange color. Pearl Coral are available as well with one that is half green and half pearly white! Some of you come in asking for a specific color of these beautiful corals, so if you are not sure which color you like best this way you can have a bit of both!

Check out our flyer for Halide Bulbs, LED's, Koralia Controllable Pumps, Micro Chillers and other accessories. (while supplies last) Did You Know? Did you know that the average life span of many fish in the wild can be up to 25 years? Most of the fish that we keep in our home aquariums would live anywhere from one year to twenty five years in the wild. Some fish may live even longer than average in captivity due to the absence of predators and food competition. In order to raise your fish into its old age you will need to provide ideal environmental conditions for it. This includes good and stable water quality, little to no stress, a variety of food and vitamins, and appropriate aquarium size. Proper maintenance and care will help you help your fish live a long, healthy and happy life. Do you know how old your fish are?

Check out our flyer for Halide Bulbs, LED's, Koralia Controllable Pumps, Micro Chillers and other accessories. Did You Know? Did you know that it is beneficial to have your powerheads on a wave maker? Creating different cycles with your powerheads allows a more natural current in any aquarium, especially a reef. The ocean does not have one constant direction of flow so having one in your aquarium will not allow the corals to be as happy as they can be. Different movement of water allows the corals to release the oxygen buildup from the microalgae
  12. I've been using a Canon A570IS powershot with the underwater housing on all my dives and it has worked out quite nicely for me. As LCDRDATA mentioned, you can do pretty much everything with it in the housing that you can do out of the housing. And it goes to depths of up to 130 feet. I have not yet used a strobe with it but I'm pretty sure you can. I use it at the store to take our coral pictures as well. I think they're great and compact for fun dives. I've been able to get some awesome shots underwater, feel free to check out my blog to see some pictures I've taken. Good luck in your search and have an awesome time in Bonaire! (I'm jealous) ~Melissa

Did you know that it is essential to have good water circulation in your aquarium? Water flow is an important factor for many corals as it helps to carry oxygen to them, brings foods and stimulates animal activity. Of course certain corals prefer high current vs. low current and vice-versa so make sure to do some research and position them appropriately in your aquarium. Good circulation also helps to oxygenate the water and keep slime algae

One of the best ways to maximize the health, color, and lifespan of your fish is to feed it an assortment of foods. We recommend feeding your fish at least five different types of food. The same way no human should eat the same meal everyday, fish and invertebrates should not eat just dry food or just brine shrimp. We carry pellets, freeze dried krill, lots of different flake foods, and a large assortment of frozen foods. We have food great for herbivores, omnivores, carnivores, small-mouth eaters, and large-mouth eaters. For the really finicky or picky eaters, we carry a few different vitamin and lipid supplements to make sure that all your fish are as healthy as possible. The best way to expand your fish's lunch menu is to either pick up at least five different types of food, or try one of our frozen variety packs. Are your fish and invertebrates getting the diet they deserve? Check out the selection of foods and additives we have on sale! Pictures of our corals on sale:
