We offer a large selection of dry goods, livestock and corals at great prices and believe our customers prefer to purchase locally if the prices are competitive and the selection is good. Some Aquarium Stores have changed their focus from local face to face business to online web based business. We strongly believe in utilizing today's technology like Social Networking, Blogs, eNewsletters and content rich web sites. However, we strive to integrate brick and mortar face to face business with these web technologies. We will always provide content rich information but our investments in the brick and mortar model and face to face customer relationships won't change. We believe customers want to visit a "neighborhood fish store" to fill their 5 gallon jug with high quality RO/DI freshwater or saltwater, look over the new livestock arrivals, see the latest corals, chat about their underwater world, pick up some food and additives and see any new hardware technologies. In between visits, or after hours, you should be able to check in with us on your favorite social network like Facebook and review an article, see what other customers are doing or just chat. On Twitter you can follow us and get Tweets about livestock arrivals or sale notices. You can find us under Coral Reef Aquariums on Facebook. On Twitter we are CRAQUARIUMS.

We make special accommodations for out of state visitors wanting to bring home some great livestock or coral from Florida. Never a box charge or handling fee. We prep your shipment for up to a 24 hour transport.period for your journey home.

We spend considerable time selecting and building strong relationships with our key vendors so that we can provide our customers the best possible pricing, the highest quality livestock and the newest technologies. A great livestock selection requires having many collection stations around the world to pick from, key importers you can trust and local wholesalers that act as holding stations to select premium livestock from.

From there they are introduced into our holding systems that contain large mechanical, biological and chemical filtration systems.
