Who We Are / Contact Us

CDA (Crystal Dynamic Aquarium Mfg.) was started in 2014 on the foundation of Leemar, a prominent West Coast aquarium manufacturer. Our team members have 30+ years experience in aquarium and stand building, and we combine that experience with a constant drive for innovation. We strive to provide the hobbyist community with premium-grade, reliable glass aquariums and aquarium cabinetry in both standard and custom sizes. Our builds vary from 100 to 1,000 gallons and are fabricated entirely in the U.S. using high-quality materials and components.

Making Beautiful Tanks

Because reef, fish and planted tanks are often the centerpiece of your home, we place a lot of value on the physical appearance of our builds. CDA tanks feature diamond-polished edges on all panels (including eurobrace), and clean, tidy seams. Our low iron tanks are made exclusively with true, patented Starphire Ultra-Clear glass by Vitro (Pilkington Optiwhite™ is also used during Starphire shortages)

For your cabinetry, we offer a wide variety of looks in solid wood and laminated panels made with regular or water-resistant MDF.

Safety Features

If there is one thing we value more than an attractive appearance, it is safety. We do extensive testing and track our aquariums' performance in the real world to see how the "math" of aquarium building stands up to actual conditions of use. This is the reason we use thicker glass on our builds than many other competitors, and offer a wide array of safety features, such as a double overlapping top brace, grade 316 stainless steel bracing, bottom eurobracing, composite glass/HDPE bottoms, and reinforced vertical seams.
