A little about Cuttle Fish and Corals

  • before the store

    Our Humble Beginnings

    It all starts with a man named Jeffrey Slemp and his message: "I finally got my first saltwater tank when I was eighteen years old. I bought a twenty-nine gallon "saltwater kit" from Petco for one hundred and ninety-nine dollars that claimed to have everything you need. It was a great learning experience and spent many hours at Soutas’ saltwater store back when he had his garage shop. The kit made me realize that I was only scraping the surface of the hobby and the depth of my passion for saltwater aquariums."

    It Begins!

    Jeff spent six years in Denver running a large saltwater maintenance company, Ocean Apart. This company serviced hundreds of tanks in Denver and the surrounding areas. He serviced tanks ranging from 20 gallons to 22,000 gallon tanks. He had a blast doing it. He always planned on moving back to Oregon, and when an opportunity presented itself, he jumped on it. He started small and focused on quality over quantity and excellent customer service. He finds pure joy in the incredible diversity that the world's oceans have to offer. His goal was to be able to pass on this experience to our customers.

    Expansion Time

    For the second time, Cuttle Fish and Corals had grown bigger than it's britches.  A new shop was born in Hillsdale, OR.  A quiet but central location in a busy area.  The store has amazing parking, a beautiful and spacious interior and everything you could possibly imagine for your reef aquaria needs.
