ReefTools visits Elite Reef in Arvada, Colorado. (video)

Posted on Monday, January 2nd, 2012 at 12:36 pm

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.

ReefTools visits Aquamart in Lakewood, Colorado. (video)

Posted on Wednesday, December 21st, 2011 at 12:16 am

I recently visited Denver and had a chance to check out a couple of local fish stores. One of the first stores we visited was Aquamart. Located at 3255 S Wadsworth Blvd, Lakewood Colorado, Aquamart is not just a great local store, but also an educational resource for hobbyists.

The first thing to get my attention was the 2 210 gallon show tanks, 1 of which is featured in Tony Vargas’ new book “The Coral Reef Aquarium.” The first is a dual island SPS dominated system, displaying a beautiful array of colors, shapes and sizes. To be honest, there were probably only about 30 colonies in there I wanted in my tank. The next tank was a colorful softy and LPS garden. Both tanks were in great condition and absolutely spotless!

Next we took a look at the vast selection of aquariums and dry goods. From all in one systems, to supplements, additives, food, lighting, pumps, powerheads, and anything else your saltwater-loving heart may desire, Aquamart had it all.

Next we checked out the 2 400 gallon coral runways. Again, these absolutely spotless display runways, were stacked with everything from zoas, palys, LPS, SPS, to clams and anemones. The way the corals were displayed made it really easy to get both a “through the glass” and “top-down” view of each coral. What was particularly nice about the selection at Aquamart, was the fact that they had both frags and large colonies. I tried leaving empty-handed, but ended up buying a bubble-tip anemone that showed up while I was there.

The entire rest of the store is occupied by a 2500 gallon fish and invert system. Tank after tank of healthy livestock, happily swimming around in appropriately-sized habitats. Before any fish is sold, it is first held an inspected in a dedicated 800 gallon quarantine system. This extra level of quality control is helps Aquamart deliver healthy livestock to its clients.

Overall, I was impressed with the store, and it will be one that I am sure to visit whenever I am in the Denver area.

New Panorama Pro LED Fixture from Ecoxotic

Posted on Monday, December 19th, 2011 at 10:15 pm

The new Ecoxotic Panorama Pro LED fixture is 24″ of sleek LED delight. This beautiful new, low-profile, modular LED fixture will not only look great over your tank, but also packs quite a punch. Each unit is powered by 5 Panorama Pro modules for a total of 95W of light, adjustable to almost any color spectrum. The Panorama Pro uses passive cooling to dissipate heat away from the tank and unit.

So, how adjustable is adjustable? You can dim each LED color group with an inline dimmer which will help you achieve the color temp you’re looking for. You can also move the modules left and right in order to control where the light spreads to. This is great in situations where your aquascaping, or coral placement may require more light in a particular area. You can also add additional Panorama Pro Modules, or any of the Ecoxotic Stunner LED strips. This lets you add some of those really cool magenta Stunner strips from Ecoxotic.

Each 24” Panorama Pro LED Fixture comes with five Panorama Pro LED Modules (three 12K White/445nm Blue and two 445nm Blue modules), black aluminum housing, two inline on/off switch with adjustable dimmer control, two 24V power supplies for dawn/dusk control, polished reflectors, two 3-way splitters, an EcoCham cleaning cloth and instructions.

Note: Mounting hardware is sold separately. Choose one of the four different mounting options per fixture below. See specification sheet for sizing recommendations and optional upgrades.
