Meet the team

Josh Barreiro

General Manager

 Josh a Cuban-American from Miami Florida spent his childhood and teenage years snorkeling and collecting fish in Miami and the Florida Keys to bring back to his home made saltwater aquarium..

Always having a passion for the hobby since a child and visiting hundreds of fish stores throughout South Florida, and all over the country while serving in the U.S. Army, he felt there was a need for a "one stop shop" solution for fish stores and aquariums shops that would not only provide an exceptional retail experience, but then deliver, install and provide long term in-home maintenance & follow up training and support for aquarists seeking to enter the fishkeeping hobby. Josh left his day job in 2018 and opened The Fish Reef Aquariums showroom in Centennial CO.

Josh personally oversees all custom aquarium builds nationwide, commercial aquarium maintenance and store franchising.

On his free time Josh enjoys Fly Fishing .
