Stunning saltwater species

We offer all kinds of gorgeous saltwater fish suitable for Reef or Fish-Only aquariums. We receive new shipments every week so you will always find something new each time you stop in. If you don't see what you're looking for, we will gladly order it for you. We can offer any advice you may need on fish care and compatibility.

why captive bred?

Captive bred means the fish was born and raised in an aquarium. Clownfish, Dottybacks, Blennies, and Cardinalfish are among the easiest fish to captive breed. The major advantages of buying captive bred fish are that they are well socialized with people and other fish, and will readily eat many types of prepared fish foods. There is a much lower risk of disease because they come directly from the breeder to our store.  We also find captive bred fish to be less aggressive than their wild counterparts, making them an ideal choice for any saltwater aquarium.

 

There are many patterns of captive bred designer clownfish available at

Salty Blues. We offer pairs, singles, and harems.

 

We're glad to order anything you don't see!
