Tour This Amazing Saltwater Fish Store in Des Moines, Iowa

When we started Salty Blues in 2018, we wanted to create a place where die hard reef keepers could find everything they want and need.

That meant cutting some things out of the typical fish store equation: bad advice and customer service, bland and small coral selection, and fish riddled with disease.

Salty Blues strives to provide saltwater hobbyists of Iowa and beyond with the best reefing experience possible.

Chloe handles and observes every fish that comes in and out. She has spent years researching and honing the best methods to prevent fish disease at the retail and hobbyist levels. She is currently working to offer Salty Blues Certified Quarantined Fish in the coming year.

Ben dips and inspects each coral before they enter our sale tanks. He carefully frags corals almost every day. He is excited to have a separate coral quarantine system for new arrivals at the Salty Blues Coral Farm.

Salty Blues is your Red Sea Certified Dealer of Iowa!

Salty Blues carries all the top quality dry goods you need for your saltwater aquarium - including the actual aquariums.

We always have many name brands and sizes of glass aquariums in stock. We also offer custom acrylic tank and wooden stand builds.

Stop by and see why we're Des Moines top rated local fish store!
