7 Steps To Creating The World’s Finest Custom Aquariums
At Living Color Aquariums, we tell our clients that we can build anything they can imagine. Over the years, we have assembled a team of world-class designers, artists and fabricators. We support their expertise with the most advanced tools and technology in the industry. And we’ve built an amazing state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, where we can turn your dreams into reality.
The magic happens step-by-step.
Step 1: Initial consultation and project coordination
We work closely with you to understand your vision and choose the aquarium size, structure shape and type of fish and habitat. Our managers then coordinate all details of your project, from the very first rendering to the final installation, with your project architects and contractors.
Step 2: Create a project rendering
Our artists use sophisticated 3D rendering software to recreate your vision, providing you with an accurate picture of what your finished aquarium will look like upon completion. Upon approval of the rendering, the design is electronically sent to our automated computer numerical control (CNC) machines for precision cutting, which facilitates a better product and a faster delivery time.
Step 3: Design an aquarium life support system
Our Aquarium Life Support designer configures your aquarium’s filtration system to create a healthy environment for marine life.
Step 4: Manufacturing, from cutting and shaping to polishing
Our Aquarium Fabrication Team casts your corals, hand sculpts and colors your custom reef, and creates a unique work of art. Aquarium acrylic is precision cut with our CNC machines, and shaped and formed in our ovens. Your aquarium is hand polished after our museum-grade bonding process is completed.
Step 5: Build and finish cabinetry
Our custom cabinetry is handcrafted. Our finishers put the final touches on your project and a full mock-up is completed. Your project now awaits your final walk-thru approval.
Step 6: Installation
Our Installation Team ensures a professional and courteous installation with respect to your property, leaving behind only your beautiful custom aquarium.
Step 7: Fish supply, ongoing support and maintenance
For systems ranging from 300 to 30,000 gallons, we have been providing marine life and quality aquarium maintenance service for over 20 years. Our staff Marine biologists can be reached for any questions or advice on a 24/7 basis. Living Color provides this service in the Tri-County area and beyond.
