I am highly satisfied with my purchase with custom aquariums, from my first conversation with Mike Grimes, to my final product, the service has been exceptional. I am thrilled with my customized product.

Rachel Moody,

I sent a request into the customer service asking about my tank that had just developed a crack in the top brace. Seeing as it was a holiday, I did not expect to hear from anyone on the same day, but to my surprise I had a response within the hour. While the answer to my question was not what I was hoping to hear, I was very pleased with the quick response and the honest advise given. I will be sure to visit Custom Aquariums in the future for all of my aquatic needs!! I am very satisfied with the service that I received!

Well the tank was started up Saturday night. It's very quiet which we love! So there's still some clarity yet to go, but I'm sure by tomorrow it should be crystal clear.

I wanted to send all of you down at Custom Aquariums an email regarding the beautiful aquarium that your company has built for me. First of all, the quality and craftsmanship put into this tank is absolutely outstanding! It is literally a 630 gallon work of art. I can barely put into words how beautiful this tank looks in my living room,and its not filled yet. The metal framework bracing the aquarium looks really sturdy and adds a very professional classy frame. I only point this out because most tanks out here in California I have seen use flimsy plastic or glass supports. So hands down your design is superior by far.

I also would like to mention, the amount of care the wood shipping container the tank came in was impressive, it was like a small house was built around the tank just to keep it safe, I appreciate that. And with your moving kit we brought it into the house with relative ease, don't think the ten of us could of done it without them.

To the workers that had their skilled hands on my tank, you guys have created a a true work of art. Thank you for being the true craftsmen that you are. I know my order was a tall one which had some ups and downs -- thank you for seeing it through and building a quality tank for me, your craftsmanship shines all over this tank and each of you deserve recognition for your work, I am very pleased.

Mike, your customer service has been great ever since you first stayed late to take my order. This aquarium was not only worth the wait for you guys to build it ,but also worth every penny and then some. The quality is unmatched by any other tank I have ever seen, and I will gladly speak highly of your company to anyone whom is in the market for a glass tank built by true craftsmen.

In closing, I want the whole company of Custom Aquariums to know how very pleased I am with my aquarium that I purchased and I wish your company massive growth and happiness for years to come. Feel free to share this email with the world. I will send some pictures when I get the tank all set up! It will be a beautiful focal point of my house for my family and all that comes to enjoy.

Thank you,
You have a customer for life,

Hello Adam,

I am writing to thank you and your company for the professionally built, and well-crafted aquarium. The process was seamless and flawless. I am so GLAD that I found and selected your company. The aquarium is set up and looks beautiful. I look forward to the aquarium being a centerpiece of my living room for at least a decade. Attached is a picture of the setup aquarium.

Thank you so much again.

The 150gal tank I got from Custom Aquariums came in 700lb crate, and was very well packed. The tank and stand are of a very high quality and is 3/4" construction. Here are some pictures: A great tank and stand.


Everything worked out great! Thanks Stacy, and have a great Thanksgiving!

I have a 300 gal. reef aquarium that the top center glass brace broke off. After measuring the ends and center I noticed the center of my tank had bowed a full inch. In fearing that my front glass wouldn't stand the water pressure I looked online for any help I could find. Within the hour customaquariums.com came to my rescue. And within 3 hours a plan was in place! Thank you so much customaquariums.com for your quick concern to my emergency and helpful staff. I also have to say in being in this hobby for the past 25 years. It's been a major concern with the structure of aquarium tanks holding up to wear and tear caused by saltwater,new wave makers, and just water pressure. The design of the marine grade anodized aluminum frame makes for a long time worry free hobby.

I have a 220 gallon aquarium and I needed to replace the current acrylic sump that had started to leak so I purchased a sump system from Custom Aquariums .com to replace the current acrylic sump.

I wanted a sump that I did not have to worry about leaking over time. I found the Seamless Sump System at Custom Aquariums. It is a modular system that you can customize to fit your aquarium. After a phone call for some advice I purchased two Seamless Sump® Baffle Tub Complete Package tanks along with one Single Reservoir Tub.

I needed a system that I could use as a filter and an over flow for my auto water change system I had installed. Because the Seamless Sump System is modular they helped customize the system to fit my needs. The system is built like a tank and should last a life time. I have had the system setup and running for about 6 months. It is keeping the aquarium chemical levels (Nitrites, nitrates. Ph, etc.) At normal levels and the water stays crystal clear. Using the Seamless Sump System along with my Auto Water Change System I had built that changes eighteen gallons of water per day I have had zero issues keeping the aquarium over stocked. I would highly recommend buying a sump system from Custom Aquariums. It will last you a life time.
