Ocean Gallery USA can design and fabricate any water wall for any custom project. Our designers’ inspiration and skills are moderated by over 25 years of collective experience that produce innovative solutions that are not only unique and beautiful, but also functional and reliable. Water walls are perfect for courtyards, lobbies or any large open space, and are cost-effective and space-saving, too. The benefit of a water wall is that they offer a quieter sound of water, as the water simply trickles down the face and doesn’t drop and splash, which can be quite noisy. Ocean Gallery USA can provide multiple design options to match the style of any project, ranging from a variety of program elements.

My amazing journey started over 25 years ago while I was a Radiologist tech at a local hospital. A few years before that, my best friend and I got interested in the aquarium hobby, so he purchased a small tank, and of course, as friendly competition would have it, I had to purchase a bigger one. Before I knew it I had 4 aquariums in my apartment, both fresh and saltwater. I figured since I enjoyed servicing my personal aquariums, that there might be a market for that (service), so I placed an ad in the local newspaper offering my services, and soon thereafter I acquired over 20 clients in a very short time.

I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be nice if I could design a custom pedestal and a canopy for a prefab aquarium, making it a totally custom tank, then I could lease them to doctors, lawyers and hospital’s offices and I can make residual income because I would also be servicing them in a totally turn-key fashion.

Five years into my new endeavor of aquarium leasing, I wanted to learn how to actually build aquariums and I found the help and friendship of Wade King from ATM in Las Vegas , the star of Animal Planets hit TV show Tanked.
Wade personally taught us how to build custom acrylic aquariums and all the dynamics and particulars that were involved in the art of acrylic fabrication. Since then until present, we have remained El Paso’s, the entire southwest, along with all of Mexico’s exclusive custom aquarium, coral insert and architectural water feature fabricator and provider. For over 20 years we also continue to remained El Paso’s, Juarez Mexico and Las Cruces New Mexico’s exclusive aquarium leasing and maintenance provider.

We are honored to have been, and continue to be, the recipients of numerous local, national and International awards and write ups regarding and praising our craft.
The Lord has blessed us beyond words, and in turn, we continue to always pay it forward by doing the spectacular every day for you!
Our standard is and always will be Perfection.
