This place is amazing. They only have saltwater fish and corals which is amazing. Their prices are way better than any other place. They have huge bubble tip anemones for only $80! There are so many different types and colors of corals too! Highly recommend!!

Great store and staff! It's fun seeing the progress and store taking shape. I like the organic growth plan. Bring stuff in as they determine what customers needs are vs trying to guess and bring in a bunch of stuff people don't necessarily want. This is how they can keep prices way down. It's also really nice that their hours are flexible, someone is usually always there and more then happy to accommodate people outside of posted hours.

The best place in the metro area by far! Very clean setup, great staff, competitive pricing and a good inventory. They also price match. Highly recommended!

Bryce Koenig

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. They are happy to help with any of your ichthyological questions.


I recently decided to get my first tank and shopped around the metro for the best deal. Not only did reef collective have some of the best pricing around but their knowledgeable staff made a relative newbie like myself feel comfortable. Highly recommend

Cade Street

Best place I've ever been too, they take amazing care of their fish and are extremely helpful with any question I have, their prices are amazing and the quality is better than I've seen anywhere else, thank you guys that work here for taking such good care of the fish and being so helpful no matter what questions I have, I will definitely buy from you guys only from now on

John Simon

Good to have a new store in this area of the TC. Staff there is very knowledgeable and friendly. Very excited to see the store progress and expand.

Emily Tucker

Reef Collective is the most amazing LFS! The staff truly couldn't be more kind and each employee is super knowledgeable and helpful. The pricing is always fair and the quality of fish, coral and other products is top notch. You can tell they honestly care about the customers and the fish. Definitely highly recommend Reef Collective!

Lawson Edwards

This store is fantastic and is run so smoothly by Zack and staff. Not only is their customer service superb their quality of corals and fish ranging from beginner to really collector stuff is top notch and at such an affordable price. After a pretty disappointing trip to New Wave Aquaria I was curious to see if they had a quarantine procedure and the amount of effort and care they have for they fish is what sets this store aside. They quarantine for 2 weeks with Chloroquine Phosphate, General Cure and Prazi Pro! Happy to see a store that is taking all the right steps to bring the best quality fish and corals to reefers.

Bought a beautiful 60 gallon tank. Couldn't be happier!

They had a lot of cool and impressive coral. But I felt swarmed by the employees having four people talking to me by the time I made it to the frag tank; there was also a lot of pressure to buy to the point I felt like I was standing in a used car dealership instead of a LFS. Once the employees started talking amongst themselves, I used it as my chance to slip away and leave. It was my first time here, and I was impressed by the stock, but I don't know that I'd ever go back.

Cheyanne Smith

Nicest looking coral and friendly staff when I go in. Definitely a great store to add to the options in the area!

Ben Feldman

Awesome look and feel at the new store. Knowledgeable staff who are passionate about what they do. Highly recommended.

Amazing store, knowledgeable staff, and excellent customer service.

Jeramey Fistrovich

If you're looking for a good selection of fish/coral, definitely worth adding to the list. They've got their quarantine methods figured out and their pricing is competitive. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates of what is coming in!

Carl Nathan

Every time I go they have been very helpful!

Yang Lee

Dan Kozlarek

Great new addition to the North Metro! If you are in the hobby or thinking of starting, check it out!!

Brandy Salisbury

I went in last week to get a couple fish and corals for my very first saltwater tank. They were very helpful and I came home with a clown fish pair and 7 corals. They are all doing amazingly great since I have brought them home!! They even sawed off the frag plugs for me so they were easier to place and glue down. This place is amazing and I will definitely be back! 5 stars!

I stopped into just look around and the staff was super friendly. I am in the process of researching a saltwater tank and they were more than happy to answer all my questions. Zack was very friendly and helpful. It was also a very clean and well maintained store.

Adam Hassett

Great spot with alot of high quality corals!

Dawson Cooper

I recently went to this store for the first time and was immediately impressed. The store looks practically brand new and was established somewhat recently from what I heard. Both the fish and tanks look extremely clean and healthy, but I was more focused on the corals on this particular trip. Their corals included a wide selection, wallet friendly prices, and some rare ones as well. I was helped by Zach after he gave me some time to look around (not sure if he was the owner but was friendly and knowledgable). After getting a feel for where I was in the hobby he suggested a few things and gave me plenty of time to make my selections. Overall, this was a really great store and I look forward to coming back in the near future. The only improvement I would suggest would be to increase the time they are open during the week (perhaps a "summer hours" sort of thing).

Alex Maile

These guys are the best. They’re honest, hardworking, and won’t try to sell a bad product. Their prices are the best by far, not expensive like new wave. I highly recommend going to Reef Collective.

Caleb Vue

“Dinoflagellates!” Be cautious, I paid a visit in April, 2019. I was looking to buy some corals. Upon observation of the frag tanks, I am in disbelief how dirty the frag tanks were, algae, organic matter, and poor water quality. I have always had a positive view of this place being top notch, apparently I was wrong. How could anyone sell corals in such a state like this one. More observation, I immediately notice a familiar algae, Dinoflagellate! I informed the staff if they were aware of Dinoflagellates being present in the frag tanks, they bluffed it off, and ignored my questions. Another staff member wasn’t even sure, as he admitted being novice in the reef hobby. (Poor customer service, and inexperienced staffs). I verified they are indeed Dinoflagellate from my experiences. They are brown, snotty-like and air bubbles! Do some research, because you do not want to introduce dinoflagellates in your tank!

Eric Krebs

Very helpful and knowledgeable. Livestock grows each time I visit.

Peter and Brittney Finazzo

The staff is amazing! We came in today for the first time and the person working was very friendly with not only my husband and myself but with our 3 year old who wanted to look at everything! The guy followed our son around showing such much enthusiasm and excitement as him. He definitely went above and beyond!

My wife and I came from Duluth for a meeting in the cities and decided to stop in and check out the shop! Very pleased with the coral selection and prices compared to a lot of other vendors and online distributors. Also very clean and great show and great staff thanks :-)
