Aquarium Design Services
Magnificent Aquariums works hand in hand with decorators and architects to integrate not only the visual aspects of your custom designed aquarium but also minimize the impact the life-support system (filters, etc.) will have on your decor. Using a state-of-the-art high-efficiency filter system, we are able to create aquatic environments which are low maintenance and unobtrusive.
An artificial reef is a sculpted environment designed to look like a natural formation beneath the sea. This custom-made reef structure is designed specifically for your aquarium. You may choose the size, color and the realistic synthetic corals that are applied to the reef structure illustrating what the coral looked like in the ocean creating a living environment.
Spectacular fish decorated with colorful patterns are exciting to watch as they school across your aquarium. The most striking angel and butterfly fish is eye catching with distinct personalities that will flourish within an aquarium. The fish within this environment depend on you for their food, therefore, they become very sociable to humans and with time many of them can even be hand fed!
A shark lagoon is basically a saltwater pond built into the ground. It is called a lagoon because we use corals both real and artificial as the décor for the pond. The best way to build one is to pour concrete just like a swimming pool with the plumbing built in. Magnificent Aquariums works with pool companies to pour the concrete and than our firm does the rest. The lagoons can house sharks, stingrays and other interesting marine life. The lagoons (ponds) are exciting because they are vast in size allowing large and extra-large specimens to be comfortably housed.

Life Support System
Life Support System (LSS) is the engine of a saltwater aquarium. It conditions the water and maintains water quality for the long-term survival of marine life. The equipment consist of a biological filter known as the Wet/Dry or Fluidized bed (converts ammonia produced by fish waste into a less toxic form called nitrate) Protein skimmer (removes unwanted organics from the water, A/C Chiller (maintains constant water temperature), Heater (maintains water temp) UV Lighting (helps decrease parasite outbreaks), High Volume Water Pumps (enables 3 X water turn over rate and 10X turn over rate for living reef aquariums), Cartridge Filter (Removes waste particles from the water) Reverse Osmosis (To replenish evaporated water).
