I thought RED was like some "ghost". But he exists and I have had the privilege of meeting him in person.

Takes for ever to get a hold of him and to respond to message sometimes tho. I guess he is very busy spreading himself thin to the reefing community.

I've been in the hobby for just over a year now and have had great experiences with this place. I've bought fish, inverts, and frags from them. All very healthy and good quality. I've always gotten good customer service.

Living in Guelph I don't have a lot of good LFS options nearby, but thankfully I work nearby CRS. I've tried Living Aquarium in Cambridge and been disappointed with the health of their fish and thier advice.

Default The Coral Reef Shop

I was at the store this past weekend. The service was terrific, I purchased a couple of corals and again Red took his time to answer my questions and offer some advice. This is my favourite place to visit and buy corals from. Great store.

Thumbs up Corals

I popped into the Coral Reef Shop this weekend, Red had an order of fish and some corals come in. I picked up a beautiful flame hawk and a real good looking yellow leather. Nice looking shipment!!

I picked up a stunning blue face angel, teeny weeny yellow coris wrasse, lemon peel mimic tang and a tiny cherub angel. All in QT, and all eating well with no sign of stress.

Red is always great to deal with, and goes out of his way for the customers.

Highly recommended.

They came through for me again!
I was consolidating 2 tanks today and had planned on "trading in" 2 fish from one of them, that wouldn't work in the new tank. I'd been told to give the store some notice so that they could free up room. But when I got the tank taken apart, the water got much worse than I had ever imagined and I was very concerned about the fish. I called and explained and was told to bring them right down. They took them no problem, and I still received a very fair store credit.
Awesome store!

Default Great Prices, Service & Quality Fish

Just wanted to posted a little review, of the Coral Reef Shop and Red! I mentioned a few fish I was looking for on one of my previous visits and they were added to their list. Red got in touch with me when he managed to find the fish I was looking for. The fish came in great and I was very please with them, they were eating and looking healthy when I came to pick them up. Overall I was very pleased with my experience with Red and would highly recommend dealing with him if you're looking for quality fish for great prices with amazing service. A couple pictures of the new fish, in particular a small black tang!
