We regularly provide public aquariums with our rocks and decors. They make their own setting ups.
Some use our standard elements for their smallest aquariums, but we often make special decorations, adapted to large size aquariums.
- ceramic rocks and “eco reef plates” from 40 to 50 cm each
- big plates from 1m to 1,80 m
- special elements
Please contact us for any projects.
These public aquariums trusted Aquaroche
Aquarium de Liège – Belgium
Big shark tank
We met Marie, the biologist of the Aquarium de Liège, at Interzoo show in Germany in 2014. She wanted a big decor for the shark tank ( 4 meters x 4 meters x height 3,5 meters)
After we have made all the elements (XL decor type): setting up in our workshop to check the volumes and the scape, then each rock receives a number for the final setting up in the aquarium.

Other creations for the Aquarium de Liège
Océanopolis – Brest
Big reef aquarium
72 m3 aquarium / 60 m3 net volume / started in November 1999.
Population : mainly hard corals.
Intentions : create a very big reef aquarium, with the least possible live rocks from natural environment.
Structure: constructed by Océanopolis team.
9 % of volume with rocks ( 3,5 tons Aquaroche “ceramic rocks” and 1,5 tons live rocks on pvc structure and plastic netting. Ceramic rocks are entirely colonized and it’s difficult to determinate what’s natural and what’s artificial.
Biological equilibrium of the aquarium is perfect. Océanopolis team could even remark sexed reproductions of corals.
The same reef aquarium in 2017.
This aquarium has been in function for more than 17 years now, with the same aquaroche rocks.
Example of colonised aquaroche rock:
Conditions of colonisation in active bacteria and algae. New, aquaroche rocks are sterile. Thanks to their open porous structure,our rocks can shelter micro organisms which will develop month after month. Aerobic and anaerobic bacteria will find there a propitious milieu and rocks will become a biological reactor similar to live rocks. Colonization can take months if you do not include live elements. The simplest is to include good bacteria with very good live rocks.. A good variety of initial live rocks will colonise the AQUAROCHE rocks more rapidly, with micro organisms and coralline algae. A strong water circulation, calcium rate over 360 mg / litre, magnesium rate 1300 mg / litre, KH of 9 and a light with blue colour, will contribute to success.
Rifts, caves, overhangs.
Other creations for Oceanopolis:
Big plates for the lagoon.
Fish and snakes can hide under the big “plates”.

Big plates for shelters and large territories.
Use plate code 8040, put on big ceramic rocks on each side.
Aquarium du Musée des Arts Africains et Océaniens – Porte Dorée – Paris
Aquarium du Limousin – Limoges
About ten décors were created in 1993.
Musée de la mer de Biarritz
Aquarium de Lyon
We provided them with big ceramic rocks and eco reef plates for a 24 000 litres aquarium.
Pecs aquarium – Hungary
With big aquariums, we need precise design and dimensions, technical contraints: on this example the floor is on 2 levels with a big step and we have to hide the horizontal pipes.
We prepare the elements in our workshop and when they are ready we build the decor and prepare the labels, numbered by column for an easy organisation when you’ll build up the decor in the aquarium.
