Custom Aquariums & Fish Tanks
Although we sell a broad assortment of standard fish tanks, we also offer customizable aquariums that will fit your home or business. In fact, our pet store was featured on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition for our beautifully built, custom aquariums. No matter what shape or size you desire, our fish tank experts can build it for you!
Our aquariums are built with either acrylic or Starphire glass, the latter of which is the best glass material on the market. These state-of-the-art materials – which are provided by our partner Aqua Vim – allow us to offer the longest warranty in the business. Depending on the design of your custom-built aquarium, this will determine which glass is the best to use.
Our pieces can be custom-crafted to be fully enclosed with modern wooden cabinet systems. They can also include rounded glass to fit perfectly within an office or business environment. Our circular aquariums are great for open-space environments and provide a beautiful, calming view of the fish inside. We work with various cabinetry and furniture companies to fit the needs of our customers.
