ReefTools visits Elite Reef in Arvada, Colorado. (video)Posted on Monday, January 2nd, 2012 at 12:36 pm by ReefTools
In a recent visit to Denver I had a chance to check out a couple of local fish stores. We ran a quick survey online, and Elite Reef was quickly identified as one of the favorites. Elite Reef is located at 8410 Wadsworth Blvd. Unit F Arvada, Colorado, Elite Reef .
As you walk in, you’ll quickly notice the extensive fish only systems to your right. Beautifully incorporated into the store, rows and rows of aquarium are filled with healthy looking livestock. A quick conversation with one of the store owners revealed the extensive quarantine procedure Elite Reef has implemented, and help hobbyists get healthy, easy to feed fish in their systems. The back of the store is dedicated to the quarantine system, a standalone liverock system and a cleanup crew (CUC) system. There is also a very neat see-through seahorse tank at the back of the store.
The center of the store is dominated by two large coral flats, displaying a nice selection of colorful SPS, clams, zoes, palys, LPS and other softies. The flats are lighted with metal halides and a variety of LED fixtures and lamps.
What we really liked about the dry goods area, is that the owners (previous hobbyists) selected products that they had personal experience and success with. Hopefully you like this video and if you’re someone who shops at or visits this store regularly, please comment below.
