Design and Fabrication

  •  All builds have initial client consultation and continued collaboration with designers and contractors. Developing the vision of our client through experience and passion we create a beautiful, living structure.

  • We incorporate wireless control systems and equipment redundancies in our designs. We have water parameters and leak probes installed and flow rate sensors in the lines. Alerts will be sent directly to your designated technician. The response is immediate and non-essential items can be shut down remotely while the team is organized.

  •  Distortion-free materials low iron, Starfire glass, and museum-grade, cast acrylics guarantee the absolute, best visibility possible.

  • A mandatory upgrade approach to the aquarium thickness is our gold standard. Increasing the surface area for bonding and acrylic welding creates a product for life.


Installation and Delivery

  • Reef aquariums require pinpoint collaboration between the trades. We work closely with the professionals to design adequate power, plumbing, HVAC, and long-term, practical cabinetry for the location.

  • Galvanized steel directly under the tank and overbuilt floor structures with engineer oversight to support an aquarium are necessary. A complete 1,000-gallon, reef aquarium weighs over 6 tons when complete.

  • Planning the correct height of the tank to be viewed initially then executing delivery with both heavy equipment and a white glove approach will ensure your tank becomes the idealistic centerpiece.

  • Reef keeping is essentially in part, water management. Mechanical room filtration systems require adequate drainage and airflow, a detailed plumbing path, and high demands on power and working space. 

  • Everything is dependant on the life support system. A dedicated chilling unit, R.O. station, ozone fractionators, media reactors, backup pumps, and ultraviolet sterilizers are all components that need to be incorporated. With over 30 years of experience in a large field of aquatic environments, we are able to design filtration to suit any tank's needs.


Aquascape and Stock

  • Aquascaping Live-rock can be one of the most challenging aspects. Best to design an open approach to light and flow throughout the rockscape. Clean, smooth, and sloped with arches and valleys.

  • Simultaneously requires both a structural and artistic mentality. Incorporating a balance of rock walls, caves, and negative spaces with a rule of thirds principle.

  • Saltwater fish and corals provide a large color palette of choice to complete the design of the reef.

  • Spacious zoning for fish and coral is important to dilute aggression and allow for growth. Corals will go to war on each other so attention to tier stepping must be made within the rockwork until fragging can occur.


Prestigious Selection

  • We believe if we must take, take sustainably. When possible we seek out aquacultured, tank-born marine species. Although slightly more expensive these animals are stronger, healthier, and more resilient.

  • If wild is necessary we select small to medium fish that have not yet carved out territory or created a dependency on sponges and other wild foods. Large, adult wild fish have fought hard in the open ocean to reach maturity, find a mate, and create the next generation for us to enjoy. Raising the fish ourselves to adulthood requires more skill and is extremely rewarding.

  • Most fish sourced from places like the Philippines may be attractive due to their low costs but the real price paid lies in the premature death, repeat collection, and habitat destruction left behind from unethical practices.
