A magnificent transition was occurring right on the show floor at MACNA 2018; unless it was pointed out, you could have easily overlooked it.
2016 brought landmark accomplishments including the first captive-bred Pacific Blue Tangs, Hawaiian Cleaner Wrasses, two more butterflyfish species, the rare Flathead Perch, and bountiful offerings of Yasha Ray Gobies. Much more awaits inside.
In honor of the first captive-bred Hepatus Tangs, we offer this retrospective excerpt from CORAL Magazine July/August 2013, just 3 years prior; a historical snapshot of the race to breed and aquaculture Tangs & Surgeonfishes (Acanthuridae)
Quality Marine gets first shipment, followed by Segrest Farms, and demand is outstripping the supply of these history making tangs.
