WHO WE ARE:
As of January 2012 Skeet Polk became the new owner of Majestic Reef in Wilmington, North Carolina. Now called Coastal Reef, the store offers more than 2500 square feet complete with 40 tanks maintained with beautiful and healthy fish, a full inventory of ‘clean-up’ crew including all types of snails, crabs, shrimp, and lobster–and a wide selection of Corals in a 180 gallon and 75 gallon Coral tank (Corals for any budget, ranging from $5, $15,$35,$45, $55, $65, and $75+). We carry a complete buffet of frozen fish foods and essential supplies. Coastal Reef gladly offers free in store water tests and the highest quality and widest selection of marine products at great prices. We have everything you need to maintain a thriving saltwater aquarium, including new and used aquariums of all sizes, pumps, sumps, overflows, protein skimmers, and lighting.
Some of the brands we carry include:
Brightwell, SeaChem, CaribSea, Koralia, Deep Blue (See our ‘Supplies’ tab above for more detailed information, or click here)
There is new livestock in store each week and we have a new sale every weekend. Our staff is incredibly knowledgeable with Marine Fish and Coral Husbandry and happy to help you with any questions you may have about keeping a healthy saltwater aquarium.
Quality, Variety, and Serviceare of the utmost importance to us. We choose only top quality wholesale providers to attain livestock– based on their treatment of livestock, collection methods, and practices towards sustainability.
Our main wholesaler uses “the most state of the art marine fish holding facility in North America, [and] leads the industry in animal holding and filtration capacity, and system stability. Water in our centralized holding systems is treated by 12 kilowatts of quartz-shielded ultraviolet sterilizers, large protein skimmers with very high output ozonizers and specially designed, highly efficient mechanical and biological filtration equipment. Nearly all of the aquaria in our 40,000 square foot facility are individually equipped with independent fill and drain systems allowing thousands of individual fish to have their own sterilized water supply, minimizing the potential for the spread of parasites and other water-borne pathogens.
As one of only a few MAC certified importers, we continue to exhibit our commitment to helping make this industry a better one, to help protect our resources for not only the longevity of our trade, but also for the preservation of the environment.”The fish are quarantined by the wholesaler, rested, fed, and individually screened numerous times before getting to our store. By the end of Spring 2012 we will also have our new fish quarentine system up and running to help guarantee the highest quality livestock.
We offer a 200+ page catalogue with a large selection of Marine fish and corals. If we don’t have what you are looking for, we can get it for you within a week. We also carry a steady inventory of ORA fish and Corals, and support locally aquacultured frags.
The store is conveniently located at College Rd. and Market St., in the same shopping center as Ten Pin Alley and the Government Center (with a blue roof).
