About Aquatic Art, Inc.

Aquatic Art, Inc. is a full service aquarium company specializing in marine ecosystems. We have been designing and maintaining marine aquariums for over 20 years - first as dedicated hobbyists and evolving into a successful business. We have always been infatuated with aquatic life.

Experience You Can Trust

Aquatic Art, Inc. is owned and operated by Cris and Nikole Capp. Their own aquarium has been featured in an online aquarium magazine, and pictures of it have been used for aquarium product packaging. Cris has been a volunteer at Landry's Downtown Aquarium in Denver Colorado, and is a platinum sponsor of the Marine Aquarium Society of Colorado. He has hosted numerous meetings and taught classes on reef keeping as well as serving as the vice president of the club.

We experience and practice almost every aspect of aquarium husbandry such as spawning and rearing of young Ocellaris Clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris), Banggai Cardinalfish (Pterapogon kauderni), and Erectus Seahorses (Hippocampus erectus). This provides us insight into the life cycles of these marine organisms. Coral propagation is also a major focus of our business. We trade, sell, and preserve coral species that can be bred in captivity and supply them to the aquarium trade. Currently we are spawning and supplying Berghia nudibranchs, a species well known for its ability to reduce or eliminate overpopulation by the nuisance Aiptasia anemone. Maintaining continuous cultures of phytoplankton and zooplankton has also been an important part of some ecosystems under our care.

Systems Designed for Success

Life support systems need to be designed for the desired inhabitants. A "fish only" aquarium has different requirements than a reef ecosystem. We have experience in designing the best system for your desires. We only work with reputable distributors and manufacturers. Starting a project with the right equipment will be the determining factor in the success of the system. We read industry standard periodical publications to keep current with the advancements in technology. We work hand in hand with manufacturers to maximize warranties when applicable. We also feel that is necessary to be fully insured for the confidence of our customers.

Quality + Quarantine = Guaranteed Livestock

We only buy livestock from reputable major wholesalers. We review stock lists, comparing pricing and most importantly, quality. We will only sell marine organisms that are feeding, healthy and disease free. Aquatic Art, Inc. has its own holding and quarantine facility. It is important to hold livestock under observation for up to 6 weeks to ensure they are thriving and readily accept frozen or prepared foods. We guarantee all livestock that is purchased from Aquatic Art, Inc. for up to 3 months.

The best part of our business is sharing the knowledge and enjoyment of this fascinating marine world with our customers.
