How we design and build our aquariums
Understanding the Design Process
After discussing your initial vision with us, our team of aquarium designers will combine your concepts with our talents in order to realize your project.  First we will create a rendered 3D drawing of your project. Using state-of-the-art graphics applications such as AutoCAD, we will develop an elaborate, detailed computer generated lifelike representation of your custom project.
After seeing your Living Color Custom Made Aquarium in picture form, a scale model is built and presented for your review and approval of artistic intent prior to fabrication. The scale model is an accurate representation of how your aquarium will be laid out and shows the relative size, shape and positioning of the submerged decorations and coral placement in relation to the actual aquarium.

Each one of our unique reef sculptures or themed archaeological replicas are made using our proprietary blend of fiberglass and epoxy materials to create a “base rock” substrate. For saltwater applications, you can choose from our selection of 5 reef base rock finishes and 4 sponge accent colors or create your own custom color combination. Next, we add our award winning, museum quality artificial corals cast from actual coral skeletons and geological formations.  For freshwater projects, choose from our vast library of realistic fabricated rockwork and submerged vegetation like limestone, basalt, mangrove roots, cypress knees and tree stumps. We can also create unique aquariums decorations designed just for you; from Egyptian Pharaohs to entire sunken ships, no request is too complex for our expert team of artists.

Acrylic Aquarium Fabrication

Our acrylic aquariums are chemically bonded to ensure strength, molded in our huge walk-in oven and hand polished for optimum optical clarity.

We use only acrylic to build our aquariums because they

  • Can be made into almost any imaginable shape or size
  • Easily refinished if scratched
  • Higher optical quality…colors inside look sharp and bright
  • Half the weight of glass…easier to ship, move and install
  • Stronger and safer than glass
  • Impact resistant
  • Resistant to the sun, salt and temperature fluctuations
  • Easy to clean
