Custom Aquarium Design
From freestanding to wall installations or custom sized and shaped, aquariums in your home are so much more than just fish in a tanks.
Consider the benefits from a home aquarium:
- Reduced blood pressure and stress relief
- A healthy hobby for children & people of all ages
- Feng Shui practices and cures
- A conversation piece
- Watch living fish instead of your television
A well built and maintained aquarium can take on a different feel than just a fish tank. They can be a piece of liquid art or a living piece of furniture. Hey, speaking of furniture, did we mention we match wood to match your existing home decor!
We would enjoy working with you on your custom designs or suggesting a custom aquarium design to suit your needs. With 50 years of building aquariums for people like you in the Bay Area we are the standard in custom aquarium design.
We provide 100% turnkey aquariums for your professional office or place of business. You need to spend time on operating your business not setting up and operating an aquarium. Let us setup the aquarium itself; life support system, lighting, structural support, canopy, decor, chemistry, nutrition and of course, the fish and other aquatic life.
All you have to do is feed and enjoy.
Packages are available from 100% maintenance free or as little help as you think you need. You should never have to sign a contract. We offer no hassle commitments with month to month arrangements.
Aquariums are available in many dynamic shapes and sizes. Most models are available with beautifully bent front corners, providing you with a seamless view of your aquariums' inhabitants.
Since 1972, we have been offering Truvu brand as our standard premire line of "Rectangular", "Hexagons", and "Corners", aquariums as well as others. Please check out Truvu Aquariums for all the details about the complete line of aquariums.
For very large and or elaborate aquariums we send the design to ATM, the world leader in custom aquarium manufacturing. ATM can also build custom inserts to replicate natural habitats from around the world, like the amazon river and tropical coral reefs.
Our aquariums are available with built-in "Pre-Filter" boxes or Aquasystems (which are aquariums with built-in wet/dry filters). Also offered is "Custom" aquarium fabrication. Truvu utilizes "Cell Cast" acrylic in their aquariums. This superior grade of acrylic is 17x more impact resistant and contains better insulating qualities than glass.
So as you can see with the many shapes and sizes combined with safety and function we truly bring you your dream aquarium!
