I've tried caring for my tank on my own... I've tried other area providers... And
then I found Aquatica!
There is a world of difference when someone that truly loves what he does is
caring for your fish and aquarium! You will not be disappointed when Brian
Paterson of Aquatica is that guy! My tank is located in my office, so it needs to
"show" well. Truthfully, I thought it was pretty nice when I was doing it myself.
Then, I ran out of time to manage it properly, so I called someone to take it
over. He did a pretty nice job too, or so I thought. When I found Aquatica, I
found just what I'd been missing. The tank is absolutely beautiful! It's a show
piece and I've lost count on the compliments I've received on it! I'd highly
recommend you and anyone else to give Aquatica and Brian a chance to
prove himself to you. Your tank will never look better, your fish will live longer
and you'll find yourself just sitting and staring at it, like I do sometimes!
Outstanding is the only word that will measure how pleased I am...

There are days when I sit in the waiting room of my office and just relax while
staring at my aquarium. It is such a serene scene to view my very own piece of
the ocean. Aquatica not only installed my coral reef aquarium, but beautifully
maintains it. I welcome anyone to come to my office anytime because my
aquarium is always picturesque.

As the office manager in Dr. Fallorina's office, I've enjoyed our aquarium as
much as our patients in the waiting room. Brian Patterson of Aquatica has
maintained our aquarium for the past four years and his customer service and
attention to detail is unsurpassed!
Tom Mallee, Office Manager for Dr. Fallorina
Our beautiful aquarium has been the talk of the hospital from patients, staff
and clergy for the past four years. I can't say enough about soothing and
relaxing the aquarium is for the waiting families and friends of patients having
surgery. Brian Patterson of Aquatica rescued our aquarium and brought it
back to life.
Rick Shaw, director Surgical Treatment St. Francis Hospital
Four years ago my sister gave me a 26-gallon aquarium. All I had to do was
set it up and buy some fish! Two months later I had spent just under $1000
and had nothing to show for my efforts but 30lbs of rock, a plastic castle, and
26 gallons of salt water. I had made weekly trips to a local store with water
samples from my tank, I had bought fish from two different stores (only one fish
lived more than two days), and had received conflicting information from every
salesclerk at three different stores.
The maintenance man at my job heard about my trouble and told me about
Brian Patterson. Brian came to my house and assessed the situation; he
rearranged the live rock and added his personal touch to make my tank look
beautiful. He told me that he shops around for his fish and that was
immediately evident when he brought me my fish. The difference in the fish I
had bought from the stores and the fish I got from Brian was like night and day.
I decided at that moment that nothing would go in my tank unless it came from
Brian. Since then Brian has maintained my tank and supplied me with
everything I need to keep my tank up and running. I recently upgraded to a
50-gallon tank; Brian made that transition quick and easy. My fish tank is quite
a conversation piece when people come to visit. I have colorful live rock,
beautiful fish, and some very interesting corals. I can't say enough about
Aquatica and how satisfied I am with everything.

Aquatica has set up my 3 pieces of artwork and have been servicing them for
the past two years. Brian and his staff are extremely courteous, efficient and
punctual. I am able to call upon him for questions, concerns and emergencies
with the tanks. Brian and Bill have a wealth of knowledge and experience that
they can share with you. If a aquarium is your desire, Aquatica is your team!
You will be amazed with their sales and service.

In 2006 my family and I moved back to the Delaware area taking on a house with
a 110 gallon salt water fish tank… having no prior experience with marine life I
required a professional to oversee its operation and educate us in the hobby.
Word of mouth referrals pointed me to Brian who I’ve come to realize has a true
and genuine passion for marine life and their habitat. I am very pleased to say
that the area I once thought I’d turn into a bookshelf is now a rejuvenated
aquarium teaming with life, energy and beauty. It’s a focal point for all who visit
our entertainment room and bar.

I have watched Aquatica flourish from a small home based business into a
supremely successful one. I'd have to believe that success stems from several
First, its owner Brian has mastered the study of fresh and salt water marine life
to the level of amazement.
Second his attention to detail and customer service are exceptionally excellent.
Finally, he has a passion for what he does thus covering all bases to deliver
I am thoroughly satisfied and overjoyed with my aquarium, the staff of Aquatica
and the "oooohhhh's and aaaahhhh's"
when visitors come to see the beautiful work of underwater art created by Brian
Patterson of Aquatica.

'Lord, free of myself, so that I may please you'
Two words...Peace and Tranquility. Those two words describe how I feel as I
gaze into my aquarium. After a hard days work, I sit in front of my tank and
unwind. As you enter the room, your eyes are immediately drawn to the colorful
fish as well as the beauty of the live rock. Friends and family alike comment on
the beauty of our tank. Brian did an awesome job! His knowledge and expertise
in selecting just the right materials and fish for our home only enhanced our
room. I would highly recommend Aquatica, if you are thinking about getting a
tank for your home or business.

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Aquatica for all your aquarium needs.
Brian has always displayed a high degree of integrity and a wealth of knowledge
in setting up and maintaining my aquarium . Brian's good judgement has
ensured a beautiful fish tank for me and my staff to enjoy. An Aquatica
aquarium would be a great asset to any home or office and I am happy to give
Aquatica my wholehearted endorsement.

We had taken care of our own tank for about 20 years, but the maintenance was
always a hassle to do ourselves. After a remodeling, we decided to try Aquatica
for setup and maintenance of our new tank. Now we wonder why we didn’t do
this before! Brian did a great job of selecting everything for the tank, and
performs the regular maintenance that keeps it looking new all of the time. He
has always provided suggestions for additions to the tank when asked, and they
always turn out better than we hoped. Aquatica does a great job!

“Not only does Brian Patterson know about aquariums, tank maintenance, and
aquatic life, he’ll put you right there as if you and him are taking Aquarium 101
together! He’s an educator… something which we all need for this hobby…”

From the day our office opened six years ago, Aquatica impressed us with their
efficient and professional manner. The beautiful fish tank in our office is
something that both our employees and patients have enjoyed for years.
Patients, especially little children, cannot wait to come in and say "Hi", to Nemo
our clown fish or the eel that has made his home in the back of the tank.
Aquatica services our fish tank regularly which allows us to use it as a
wonderful background in our office and employee photos. We would
recommend that anyone use Aquatica to service or create their beautiful new
fish tank for everyone to enjoy.
