Located in Hackettstown of Warren County, New Jersey (NJ), Creation of the Sea is a family-owned and operated business that provides unique saltwater aquarium displays and natural medicinal substances derived from the sea.

We install and maintain “all-natural” saltwater aquariums to fulfill the needs for art, exploration, entertainment, education, medicine, and/or therapy. In addition to living (natural) filters, we use pure water, salts and minerals to help create and maintain our natural saltwater aquarium systems – canceling the need for any kind of man-made (artificial) filter and/or chemical solution. This methodology for naturally operating and filtering a saltwater aquarium helps us to provide high-end displays that are more affordably priced than our competitors, while offering low maintenance costs.

WE SPECIALIZE IN “THERAPEUTIC” AND “EDUCATIONAL” SALTWATER AQUARIUM DISPLAYS. Our staff has over 20 years’ experience designing, installing and maintaining saltwater aquariums.

our approach


Our saltwater aquariums are completely natural by design and “eco-friendly”, and don’t require man-made (artificial) filters and/or chemicals to operate. In addition to living (natural) filters, we use pure water, salts and minerals to help create and maintain our saltwater aquariums. We also sell pure water, salts and minerals separately to consumers for health enhancement.


Our “turnkey” saltwater aquarium systems do not contain PVC piping, external (remote) pumps, chiller units, or any kind of artificial filter. As a result, they operate in a quiet fashion and are less maintenance than most other saltwater aquariums available in the marketplace. The simplicity of a Creation of the Sea saltwater aquarium system allows a person to enjoy the beauty of sea life in peace. Also, our natural medicinal substances supply people with a simple and safe alternative for attaining better health.


We provide aquariums in many different shapes and sizes. Your saltwater aquarium display could be as small as a 10-gallon standard aquarium, as large as a 500-gallon custom aquarium, or as humongous as a 10,000-gallon oceanarium!


We create 100% organic saltwater aquariums by implementing a unique methodology for naturally filtering a saltwater aquarium. This all-natural filtration method not only cleans and stabilizes a saltwater aquarium efficiently and effectively like other natural saltwater filtration systems, but provides visually inspiring benefits that both educates and entertains as well.


Once your saltwater aquarium is installed, we will maintain it for you to ensure the health and longevity of your aquarium’s ecosystem. Due to the natural and eco-friendly operation of a Creation of the Sea saltwater aquarium, our service costs are more affordable when compared to the maintenance costs from many other aquarium service companies in the NY Tri-State area.

Entertain and/or Heal

We all know how entertaining and fun saltwater aquariums can be to view, but did you know that research studies have shown that aquariums, specifically, can lower blood pressure, relieve stress, and promote relaxation? These primary health benefits of a saltwater aquarium can be experienced in a home, office, patient waiting room, reception area, elderly care facility, funeral home, or restaurant. Studies have reported that aquariums not only improve employees’ health in the workplace, but morale and productivity as well. Our saltwater aquariums, in particular, are considered by many to be the most tranquil in the marketplace, as we specialize in therapeutic saltwater aquarium displays. In addition, the medicinal water, salts and minerals that we provide can help heal the body on both physical and cellular levels.
