Cold Water Aquarium Systems

Cold Marine System, University of Washington

"We're very happy with the tank systems we had custom built by Aquatic Enterprises. We needed tanks that would work reliably in our walk-in cold room as we are building a facility to house temperature-sensitive Antarctic fish, and the systems we purchased work great!"

– Dr. Bradley A. Buckley
Assistant Professor, Department of Biology, Portland State University

Aquatic Enterprises cold-water racks are purpose built, fully self-contained systems designed to suit a variety of cold-water applications. These rack systems can maintain temperatures as low as 33°F with no condensation on the viewing windows. 

The systems are designed for both fresh water, brackish, and marine applications.

Our cold water systems are fully insulated for maximum energy efficiency, while keeping the equipment, plumbing, and holding tanks free of condensation. All our cold-water life support packages are fully engineered to provide a stable water chemistry and environment for the animals. We remotely locate the life support equipment so heat is not introduced to the aquarium room.
