Who We Are / Contact Us

Crystal Dynamic was started in 2014 on the foundation of Leemar, a prominent West Coast aquarium manufacturer. Our crew members have 25+ 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 40 to 2,000 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. Crystal Dynamic 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 wider variety of wood choices and stand styles than most manufacturers in the market. Our cabinets range from basic to completely custom designs based on the photographs of your existing furniture or custom stain samples.

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, aluminum/steel bracing, bottom eurobracing, composite glass/HDPE bottoms, and reinforced vertical seams. 

We water test all non-standard builds and will water test your aquarium (regardless of size) upon request.
