We are a small company whom takes pride in doing quality craftsmanship for our customers. Our business does not incorporate a volume based production model. The above said, our standard aquariums are built using thicker material with attention given to clear seams and mechanically high polished edges upon request. Competitive pricing can not be achieved due to the time and care taken in assembly. Smaller aquariums under 30 gallons can be made one at a time, this ensures the quality of the end product.
