All living items in a Biota Aquarium are sustainably cultured, or farmed, meaning we do not plunder the ocean’s resources.

Our own Biota Palau Marine Life Nursery in the Pacific, the brainchild of Biota co-founder Tom Bowling, supplies one of the fish species and the corals for the Biota tanks. The remaining items come from an aquaculture farm in Florida, which means we can guarantee your livestock for the first 30-days!

“I heard reef tanks were very difficult to set up and that I could lose a large investment virtually overnight if the aquarium got out of balance. If you have ever wondered if you could successfully keep your own reef tank, Biota offers a great, sustainable, affordable and manageable reef aquarium system.”

Brent Misfeldt

I’ve had several freshwater & brackish aquariums in the past but was always scared to make the leap to saltwater. Biota has made that jump fairly easy & a fun learning experience. I’m very happy with my tank and the great customer service. I highly recommend Biota aquariums.

“I would never have considered a saltwater aquarium until Biota Aquariums came around. Kevin Gaines and his team have scored a home-run. Everything is perfectly balanced in this easy step-by-step set-up with clear and complete instructions. I couldn’t be happier with my aquarium and the customer service and support is awesome.”

Jim Zimbardi

“The whole experience was fantastic. Rare in this day and to exceed expectations, but Biota has accomplished that.

Simply a phenomenal intro to reef aquarium ownership.

Couldn’t be more pleased with Biota and my investment!”
