The Benefits of Artificial Coral Inserts in Your Aquarium
  • Resilient Beauty
  • Low Maintenance
  • Environmentally Friendly
  • Easy Installation
  • Cost Effective
Superior Quality
Our corals are hand-molded from real ocean corals. We use durable, non-toxic materials, designed to remain beautiful and withstand the harsh conditions of aquarium life.
Animal Safe
Unlike poorly made, mass-produced corals, our products are made from premium materials that are 100% safe for marine life. No leaching or sharp edges to harm your animals.
Modular Design
Our modular reef system makes it easy to build an amazing habitat for your marine life. It also allows you to update, modify, and expand your aquarium decorations instantly!
We handcraft each piece that bears our name. This process ensures that no detail is missed and that you receive the highest quality product you can count on well into the future.
Minimal Upkeep
There are numerous benefits when switching to artificial corals. One of the biggest is the decreased need for intensive maintenance that typically is involved with live tanks.
Saves the Environment
We are big believers and supporters of saving our planet. All of our products are made using non-toxic materials which do not produce a hazardous materials waste stream that can later adversely affect our environment.
