Reefwise is a warehouse style reef aquarium store that started in January of 2012 in the western suburbs of Chicago, IL. Our reef is home to an enormous variety of coral and fish species for the beginner to the most advanced reef hobbyist. Reefwise is not your typical box reef store with dozens of small glass tanks. We literally built a 52-foot-long natural reef in our store! The reef is made up of a 3 large wooden troughs powered by over 3,000 pounds of live rock and a giant algae turf scrubber which help provide optimal living conditions for every animal in it. The underlying eco-support system and several mother colonies have been with us for nearly 30 years. We also have several separate ecosystems that have been designed to hold a vast selection of saltwater fish, ensuring a healthy and stress-free environment. All incoming fish go through an initial treatment and thorough quarantine process.


Our goal is to maintain the largest selection of healthy fish coral found in the Midwest. Reefwise is home to everything we can bring in from the best aquacultured, maricultured, and wild caught sources all over the world including a variety of rare animals you might never see again. Don't take our word for it though, stop by today and see for yourself!


Our shop is conveniently located a few minutes from I-355/I-88 in Lisle, Illinois. Right off of IL Rt. 53 and Maple Avenue, Reefwise is established in a warehouse/business condo complex with available store-front parking.
