Testimonials

“We were thrilled to get our first set of tanks from Midwest Custom Aquarium! They were packed very well and the craftsmanship was second to none. Our customers really enjoyed their new tanks! It’s been several years since our first order and not one complaint or issue yet! The tanks are built to last!”

“My name is Derek and I own Tropical Reef Aquarium Maintenance LLC and Beyond Blue Aquariums LLC. Midwest Custom Aquarium is by far my favorite acrylic tank manufacturer. I have dealt with many others and the tanks that Chris at MCA fabricates meet and exceed all my expectations. Chris works with you so you receive a custom tank that not only looks amazing but also is thought out so that ongoing maintenance is easier. He takes the time to make sure all details are correct, holes are drilled exactly where you need them to be, and the list goes on. Feel confident if you are purchasing a tank from Midwest Custom Aquarium, you will be getting an amazing tank at a very reasonable price.”

“Midwest Custom Aquarium” is one of the best acrylic manufacturers I have worked with. We have had many projects over the years that we needed custom bids for and they always come out the best value. They are a full service company, they even do our cabinetry for the custom tanks. We have had many tanks that had a good amount of lead time to get going and also many tanks that we needed to begin immediately, and Midwest Custom Aquarium has always come in on time and budget. It is fantastic to have a company that I can rely on to get things done when I need them and to have some of the best looking tanks I have ever seen.”

“We engaged Midwest Custom Aquarium to build a replacement for a large acrylic aquarium that is a focal point in our Nature Center. Chris was very helpful during the design phase, suggesting changes that made our new tank perfect for the space and application. They worked with us to schedule delivery and installation at a time that would least affect traffic in the Nature Center. The team that arrived for installation was wonderful to work with and were very accommodating to our curious and excited staff. The fact that the price was right was a bonus! I would recommend Midwest Custom Aquarium to anyone considering a large scale display aquarium – you can’t go wrong!”

“Chris and his team at Midwest Custom Aquariums is by far one of the best custom aquarium companies we work with. We have been using them to fabricate custom aquariums for us for close to 10 years. Their quality and craftsmanship is second to none. We can’t offer higher level of recommendation. If you’re looking for a custom aquarium give Chris and his team a try.

“We contracted Chris for a set of custom acrylic tanks for a research facility at The George Washington University. We needed these tanks to house a specimen that stood over 13 feet tall, and after contacting countless companies to build tanks of this size, and with the tight tolerances we needed, Midwest Custom Aquarium was one of the few companies that was willing to work with us. We could not be happier with the finished product. In addition to the acrylic tanks, Chris also furnished a black anondized aluminum frame that we then bolted to our own steel support structure to provide additional support. All of the critical dimensions came together flawlessly. What took doing business with Chris to the next level, was the personal attention he provided both during the manufacturing process, and after the product was delivered, when he was willing to come out to our site to provide additional support with issues we ran into during our testing. Midwest Custom Aquarium will be the first place our research group will turn to for future endeavors.”

“As an owner of an aquarium maintenance company I am challenged regularly with my customers wanting a custom shaped aquarium or the best of the best. At Midwest Custom they seriously know how to construct an aquarium. I have ordered tanks from other companies and the quality is night and day difference. Chris specs out the acrylic thickness so you will have zero issues. Some other companies will go thinner to come in cheaper but you will have bowing and crazing in short order. I have ordered multiple tanks from Midwest. One of them needed to be done in 10 days. Another is a 250 gallon corner tank with oak stand which my customer loves. He has 2 other large aquariums from another company that he says repeatedly they look horrible next to Midwest’s.. As far as shipping, Midwest does a great job. I’m always nervous about the shippers handling these tanks. Not a scratch on them when I get them. I will continue to order from Midwest Customs as they have met or exceeded the standards I want.

“We have used Midwest Custom Aquarium for years to fabricate acrylic enclosures for science museum exhibits that we have installed around the world. Chris is great to work with and his product is second to none.”

“I’ve ordered tanks from the “other guys” and I’ve been very disappointed in the manufacturing lead time as well as workmanship. Midwest’s tanks ship fast, their prices are very competitive, and the quality is top notch. We contact them first for all of our large custom aquarium needs.”

“I have worked with many acrylic aquarium manufacturers and Midwest Custom Aquarium is shoulders above the rest. The level of detail and craftsmanship is apparent in the beauty and durability of the products and they always deliver what is promised. I highly recommend Midwest Custom Aquarium for you next aquarium project.”

“Over the past 5 years I have worked with Chris and Midwest Custom Aquarium to build a number of custom aquarium systems ranging in size from 250 gallons to over 600 gallons. In each project there were multiple challenges that Midwest Custom Aquarium mastered, ranging from unique colors and forms, to complicated custom filtration systems. With every project the communication, customer service, quality, and value were exceptional. I would highly recommend Midwest Custom Aquarium and I look forward to working with them on future projects.
