Since 2003, Fish and Reef has been New York’s premier aquarium design, installation, stocking, and maintenance firm. Specializing in all aquatic ecosystems: freshwater, planted, saltwater, and reef alike.
You may think that adding fish into a tank makes a neat aquarium, but aquarium design is so much more exciting than just the fish. Good aquarium design involves a vivid imagination. What aquarium elements will make those who see your water-filled creation say, “wow!” More importantly, what design will bring you joy every time you look through the glass of your very own aquarium?
Aquarium Design And Theme Adds Interest To Your Tank
If you are going through the steps to add an aquarium to your home or business location, you must take some time to decide on a design. You can pick a whimsical cartoon-like theme, a jungle theme or even a Zen garden theme. In theory, the sky’s the limit. You just need to make a plan and pick design elements that will be colorful and compatible with the fish species you select.
Decorating The Aquarium Can Be Fun For All Ages
Take one step into an aquarium shop and prepare to be overwhelmed and amazed at the selection. Whether it be the colorful array of big, small and teeny tiny fish or the actual aquarium decorations that bring your theme to life, it will no doubt be a fun-filled shopping trip. Miniature decorations and statues, colorful pebbles, gravel and sand, ingenious lighting and a variety of ornamental plants and branches can truly add to the ambiance of your ecosystem.

For centuries, the Algonquin people inhabited Long Island. A sub-division of the Algonquins known as the Secatogue ( Mohegan (L.I.)) tribe occupied all of the area in what is now the town of Islip. Their principal villages were at West Islip (Secatogue), Bay Shore (Penataquit), and Oakdale (Connetquot).
On November 29, 1683, William Nicoll (Nicolls), founder of the Town of Islip and son of New York City Mayor Matthias Nicoll, was awarded the first royal patent to the east end of what is now the Town of Islip. Nicoll purchased land from Sachem (Paramount chief) Winnequaheagh of Connetquot. He named his 50,000-acre (20,000 ha) plantation (an 8-by-10-mile (13 by 16 km) tract of land) “Islip Grange”, in honor of his ancestral home of Islip (UK) in East Northamptonshire, England, from which Matthias emigrated in 1664. Nicoll’s domain extended from East Islip to Bayport and embraced the present-day communities of Sayville, West Sayville, Oakdale, Great River, Islip Terrace, Central Islip, Hauppauge, Holbrook, Bohemia, Brentwood, Holtsville, and a portion of Ronkonkoma. Nicoll paid an annual quit-rent (tax) to Thomas Dongan, 2nd Earl of Limerick and Governor of the Province of New York, of five bushels of good winter wheat or twenty-five (25) shillings payable annually on March 25.
Other early land patentees were Andrew Gibb (Islip hamlet), John Mowbray (Bay Shore, originally Awixa), Stephan Van Cortlandt (Sagtikos Manor), and Thomas Willets (West Islip).Learn more about Great River.
