Nick and his team listened carefully to my project’s objectives and delivered an awesome tank which has a streamlined feature which makes cleaning such a breeze! Not only does the tank look awesome, I know that the biological sump filtration provides the best environment for my fish. I’m so happy with the support they have given us.

S. Martin

My Saltwater Coral tank is such a beautiful masterpiece. The Aquarium Architect team was able to provide me with equipment which allows me to monitor my water parameters even when I’m away from home. They explain everything in detail and I find it so convenient that they have a showroom where I can pick out more fish and coral!

C. Smith

Aquarium Architect went above and beyond to create such a glamorous Marine Aquarium which really complements the luxury, high end design of my residence. They are courteous, informative and provide excellent aftercare, including how to correctly dose and monitor tank parameters. I highly recommend this team and give them 5 stars.
