Based in Hackettstown of Warren County, New Jersey (NJ), Creation of the Sea installs and maintains “turn-key” saltwater aquariums in the New York Tri-State area to fulfill the needs for art, exploration, entertainment, education, medicine, and/or therapy. Our aquariums are built with self-containing and self-sustaining natural filtration systems that allow for easy (and affordable) installation and maintenance. The company also provides medicinal water, salt and mineral products derived from the sea to help enhance the health of both people and animals.

our approach


Our saltwater aquariums are completely natural by design and “eco-friendly”, and don’t require most of the conventional equipment and/or chemicals in the saltwater aquarium hobby 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 “turn-key” saltwater aquarium systems do not contain PVC piping, chiller units, and external (remote) pumps and filters. 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 derived from the sea 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 75-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 natural methodology for filtering a saltwater aquarium. This 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.
