About Us

In 2012 Matt and Trista Wichers started Sioux Falls Aquatics initially as an aquarium maintenance company. With great success, they opened a fully operational store front in 2014 serving the general public. Founders Matt and Trista Wichers’ began their aquarium-husbandry in early 2008 when Trista brought home a fish tank from a lady at their church. Like many aquarium enthusiasts their thirst for knowledge grew quickly.

Curiosity blossomed into passion, from enthusiast to advanced hobbyist Matt worked his way onto the board of Sioux Falls Area Aquarium Society. While serving Matt volunteered countless hours for years in the Marine Cove at the Sertoma Butterfly House helping create a landmark for the first Public Aquarium in Sioux Falls. With such a successful accomplishment under his belt and the support of his wife Trista, they decided to form Sioux Falls Aquatics, LLC.

Sioux Falls Aquatic’s commitment to each of our customers is to provide high caliber knowledge, equipment solutions and proper onsite dry goods expected to maintain healthy aquatic life support systems. Our facility strives to carry healthy fish, coral and invertebrates. Insuring not only healthy inhabitants but visually stunning long term aquarium results.

In addition to our onsite store, we also offer aquarium maintenance packages for businesses and personal residences. We specialize in both freshwater and saltwater aquarium installations, aquascaping and custom designs. If you would like to learn more about Sioux Falls Aquatics and our offerings please feel free to contact us or visit our store.

We look forward to making your dream aquarium a reality.
