Greetings! So what's new? WE ARE!! Coming soon to Jacksonville is Reeflections Aquarium. The retail aspect of the business is being relocated from Marathon in the keys. We have a lease on our space and we are currently under construction. The store is 3250 square feet, likely making it the largest "aquatics only" store in north Florida. Don't have a total volume yet, but there is gonna be a LOT of water in here! We are more than doubling the tank space of the original keys store. We will have an extensive line of fresh and salt water fish, invertebrates, and plants as well as all the associated supplies. Maintenance services and custom work are our specialties.
Reeflections has had a long and varied history and while new to the area is not new to the business. The company was started as a small retail outlet in Tampa in the 90's as "Coral Seas Aquarium". After operating successfully the store was sold to an incoming "big box" company and moved inside of their location. I continued to operate their aquatics division until I chose to leave to devote more time to aquarium maintenance services. Not long after I was hired on as the general manager Of Marine Warehouse Aquarium, to this day the largest aquatics only store in the state, while concurrently operating my maintenance business. After 13 wonderful years at Marine Warehouse I chose to leave the Tampa area and relocate to the keys where I purchased a small wholesale aquarium fish collection business. While fun and fascinating this turned out to be a ton of work for very little reward and after a little over a year I sold that part of the company. At that point I opened Marathon Pet Center. This was a 2400 square foot full line store in the heart of the Keys that specialized in aquatics. At present it is no longer in operation. Though damage to the store itself in the hurricane was minimal, damage to the customer base was catastrophic. The store was closed in January and the stock and equipment were moved to Jacksonville. Jacksonville is a beautiful city and I am looking forward to making it the new home for both myself and the company. I hope you will give us the opportunity to serve you and provide for all your needs. See you soon!!

Highlights of new stuff that did come in this week includes lg foxfaces, scissortail chromis, engineer gobies and coral cats, plus some unusual Caribbean stuff including swissguard basselets, a real nice medium queen, and a rose butterfly. Freshwater is packed including beautiful angels and discus, new small and medium peacocks and great plants. Thank you very much for your support and hope to see you all this weekend!
