Aquarium Build Phase

Rockwork and Themes Service

Create beautiful natural habitats and bring creative themes to life.

More than aesthetic features, intricate corals and rockwork must be durable, cleanable, not leach harmful dyes or chemicals and serve as functional structures that supports animal wellbeing.

Stunning habitats

Authenticity. Craftsmanship. Creativity.

These genuinely realistic aquarium exhibits are made with cast and latex molds and quality finishing materials for structural integrity, no toxicity and the durability to withstand permanent immersion in tank water.

Lifelike

Detailed and realistic natural habitat and environmental simulations.

Rockwork, flora and fauna

Authentic above and below-water structures including rocks, corals, trees and plant materials.

Bring theme to life

Delight visitors with magical creative themes and unforgettable customer-journeys.

Ecosystem-friendly

AAT rockwork, plant-simulations, creative themes and corals won’t harm the animals.

Recreate marine, coastal, freshwater, wetland and many other habitats.

Watch a FRP tank being made.

Corals and rockwork is made at our global production hub and either shipped to aquariums for assembly on-site os installed in prefabricated FRP tanks that can be shipped anywhere in the world.
