Blue Star Aquatics - Louisville

Recommended Posts

Work took me to Louisville today, so what better than a small detour to the LFS. Stopped at Blue Star Aquatics which is in the Louisville area, but is technically in Indiana.

I was very impressed by the equipment and amount of tanks setup within the shop. ATI and kessil lighting with a touch of Reefbrite this and that. Some massive Reef Octopus skimmers as well as a few Bubble Magus Curve 7s or 9s(?).

They had what I thought was a decent selection of fish, even though this week's order was delayed due to the holiday. The owner said they usually have much more than what was there. Some prices I thought were good deals, even made me consider going home with a fish. Others not so much, but I guess the market is now leaning towards a $100 Hippo Tang. Not too long ago it seemed as if you could pick them up any day for right around $50. 

The coral selection was okay. Lots of LPS and softies. Not a place for the overly passionate stick head. Saw some zoas that definitely caught my eye, again almost made me reach for my wallet. 

Nice invert section as well, with lots of macro algae available to purchase. It has been a while since I have seen a decent selection of macro algae in store for purchase.

Overall, the tanks looked good and, they had lots of quality equipment. I did notice one or two dead fish, but that's not to say that I haven't seen a dead fish or two at my favorite fish store either. I think it is definitely worth the stop if you are in the area. 4 out of 5 stars!
