  • Should I Hire A Professional Company To Design My Aquarium?

  • Should I Hire A Company To Help Stock My Tank?

These techs are highly trained with fish compatibility, coral placement, plant care and invertebrate requirements and will help you curate your aquarium efficiently.

The first inhabitants were the Orient Focus People, Native Americans who lived in the area about 1000 BC. They vanished long before the arrival in about 900 AD of the Corchaugs, who called the area Poquatuc. The Corchaugs were still present when six English families settled in 1661. The new residents called the area Oysterponds because of the abundant shellfish that they began to gather and sell to nearby communities. While farming remained the principal occupation, trading vessels began operating out of the sheltered harbor during the colonial period.

British troops landed in 1776 during the American Revolutionary War. Many families fled to Connecticut, and the Redcoats periodically plundered the farms they left behind. After Benedict Arnold switched sides, he organized raids on Connecticut from Oysterponds. The British returned during the War of 1812, setting up what turned out to be a porous blockade against American ships sailing to New York City. In 1814 Commodore Stephen Decatur anchored his American squadron off Trumans Beach but never engaged the British. After the war, renewed farming and fishing brought prosperity to Oysterponds. By 1840 more than 30 schooners were operating out of the harbor, carrying fish and produce.

Orient and East Marion originally were called Oysterponds Lower Neck and Oysterponds Upper Neck, respectively. In 1836, the two communities went their separate ways with new names. Orient was chosen to reflect the area’s easternmost position on the North Fork of Long Island. East Marion was named for Gen. Francis Marion, the “Swamp Fox” of the Revolutionary War. “East” was tacked on because of an existing town of Marion upstate.

I called Island Fish & Reef to come remove an aquarium that had been left behind in my home. They were able to provide their service in a quick and professional manner. They sent two technicians who were very polite and careful while they were in my home and they worked quickly and cleanly. Though I no longer have a fish tank I can confidently recommend them for their excellent work. The quality of their service is top notch 5 stars for sure!

Island Fish and Reef is truly excellent. I was very lucky to find them a few years ago to move a 120g reef tank to our office. They did a great job and have been coming weekly for maintenance ever since. Downs and his team are very knowledgeable, professional, and always go the extra mile. They have sourced fish, corals, and equipment that made perfect additions to our system. They do a great job coming up with creative custom solutions to any problem we come across. Thank you!
