AAT develops superior aquascapes backed by standard professional equipment, leaving our clients with natural, breathtaking custom aquarium displays.

Our goal with any custom built aquarium or aquatic system is to successfully hold, rear, and culture aquatic organisms. Considering the expense of these animals, and the environmental impact on our natural reefs and local waters, we won’t allow our clients or the animals we house to suffer from inferior products.

We design our products to foster easy customer maintenance, and to make AAT systems. The design allows for displays that are easier to maintain than any other aquarium design.

Once the display is completed, AAT prides itself in the quality management of our displays.

Our seasoned team of professionals supports our clients’ displays with great care in order to maintain a price point appropriate to budgetary expectations. Our team includes:


Marine Biologists
…and SCUBA divers

The skill set of the Aquatic Arts Team ensures the long-term success of smarter aquatic husbandry systems.



AAT promotes the use of aquacultured fish, invertebrates and corals in the displays we design and build as well as the livestock we sell to end-users. If we are unable to supply a client with the appropriate aquacultured animals, we then use wild collection. For wild collection, we use only fish wholesalers who have the same ethics as we promote, wholesalers who use environmentally safe methods of capture.


AAT also has an aquaculture division, which specializes in the propagation of both hard and soft corals. We have sustained coral cultures in-house for more than ten years, and the variety of our coral continues to increase every month. With the use of standardized feeding, health evaluations, and quarantine protocols, Aquatic Art delivers high end, healthy corals at competitive prices.

Aquatic Art Technologies has maintained our 3000 gallon aquarium at sports haven for a number of years now. Geoff and staff are attentive to our needs, have provided the expertise and service we’ve contracted him for. AAT has suggested changes to the system to ensure problems are reported immediately to ensure the health of our livestock and the integrity of our aquarium display. I would not hesitate to recommend his company to others interested in his services.

Manager of Operations
Sports Haven – New Haven, CT
As the Principal of New Haven’s Sound School, the nation’s first high school devoted totally to the study of marine science and technology, and now as a consultant to school systems developing similar programs, I have come to appreciate the superior quality of work done by Geoffrey Sampson and Aquatic Art Technologies. AAT designs are clear, imaginative and precise. The specified equipment is intended to give the client reliability and long life. Installation is beautifully executed recognizing that the appearance of a system is and important indicator of quality work. We were so impressed with AAT that the Sound School contracted with them to manage all of our fish production systems.

I can certainly recommend Aquatic Art Technologies for design, installation and management of both fresh and salt water systems without any reservations.
