AquArt - their name says it all. Seemingly, this group of young and ingenious entrepreneurs doesn't consider aquariums anything less than works of art. Rich Gould and company not only offer state-of-the-art faux habitats for rare and expensive fish, they DEFINE what the state of the art is for custom aquarium systems.


Let's start with AquArt's cutting-edge seemless cylinder technology. Whether it's from the outside looking-in or the inside looking-out, their crystal-clear cylindrical aquariums completely dispose of obstructed views; in other words, "Look Mom, NO LINES!" How durable are these things? Gould boasts, "You can drive a Hummer over one and it won't bend. Wanna see?"  Of course, all that high-tech, durable stuff comes with a price tag (seemless cylinders run anywhere from 2-12 grand) but those shelling-out thousands for swimmingly fine fish, just might want put them up in the dopest of digs.


The real beauty of AquArt seems to be, relative to industry standards, they simply give clients more than their money's worth, whether it's top-of-the-line or anywhere underneath. Afterall, if you'll pardon the pun, you can't keep your head above water long in this highly-competitive industry by offering much less.

And talk about a RANGE of offerings -  AquArt's innovative designs and awe-inspiring custom creations set the bar extremely high for other designers and manufacturers. Clients can choose from acrylic, glass, or fiberglass aquariums in sizes from 50 to 20,000 (that's no typo) gallons. Only the acrylic tanks come with a 15-year guarantee. Shapes? You want shapes? Besides those cool cylinders, they can do bow-fronts, pyramids, octagons, ovals, rectangles, you name it.


All their tanks and filters take into account accessibility and reliability. They employ a unique "perimeter bracing" method rather than the stamped-out holes used by many other national brands.

As a full service company, AquArt also offers personal delivery, full installation; heck, they'll even build it for you AT YOUR PLACE!

For more than two decades now, Gould and his glass-wielders have always focused on uniquities, craftsmanship, and customer service. As new-wave as this company is, it seemingly still approaches business the old-fashioned way - with pride for itself, its products and services, and respect for its customers. As for references, they got 'em - worldwide.

By all indications, AquArt not only talks the talk, they "swim the swim!" (sorry, it just came out)
