OOA Reef

We have one of the largest reef displays in the Chicagoland area. Our corals are in aquariums as opposed to runways so our customers can see how the coral will look in their respective aquariums. We distinguish our corals with different lighting system displays to accommodate the broad spectrum of lighting our customers’ might have at home. We basically display high, medium and low light corals illuminated by:

  • Metal Halide
  • T-5 VHO (Very High Output)
  • Power Compact
  • LED (Light-Emitting diode)
  • Standard Fluorescent

Different Kelvin temperature spectrums are also displayed throughout the store to show how different corals react and display in different light examples.

We monitor and maintain water quality using Seachem® products and Instant Ocean® Salt in TDS (total dissolved solids) controlled deionized water.

Every week there are new corals to see and purchase.
