About Elite Aquaria
Elite Aquaria is the pinnacle of aquarium and pond companies in Connecticut. We provide custom installation, maintenance, design & consultation services to residential and commercial settings in Fairfield County & the New York area. At Elite Aquaria, we pride ourselves in creating beautiful custom aquascapes that enhance the ambiance of any room or space.
Interested in a custom aquarium or pond? Call us to schedule a free consultation. An Elite Aquaria representative will meet with you to design a water feature that will fit your needs and level of commitment. We can help with any size project at any stage- whether you are looking to install a stock 5-gallon freshwater tank or a custom 20,000-gallon saltwater reef tank. Give us a call to see how we can help you.
We often hear people say, “Aquariums are beautiful but they are hard work!" Elite Aquaria makes it easy. We take pride in setting up sustainable systems by using the correct equipment, establishing an efficient maintenance schedule and keeping up-to-date on advances in the industry. Whether you'd like to sit back and enjoy the water feature, or interact and get your hands wet, we will set up a service schedule that meets your needs.
Do you have an aquarium or pond that is an eyesore and you can't quite figure out why? Need help designing a water feature? We have a marine biologist on staff that can meet with you to complete a thorough examination, water testing, resolve algae/livestock problems, etc. This allows us to provide you with the resources and solutions that you need, and gives us a competitive advantage that other companies do not have.
Questions and answers
- How did you get started?
Owner/Aquarist Justin Ficaro first fell in love with aquatic animals as a child while searching in tidal pools off the coasts of Maine during family vacations. Justin had his first aquarium at the age of 12 and went on to study marine biology at Fairleigh Dickinson University. While in college, he completed two field studies in the Caribbean and was awarded the Excellency Award in Marine Biology upon graduation. Motivation to start Elite-Aquaria culminated after years of working for other local aquarium companies and noticing deficiencies in the attention given to customers and lack of respect given to the livestock.
- How many projects do you average in a year?
We are continuously designing & maintaining aquariums & ponds as well as consulting. It is hard to put a solid number on the number of custom installations done in a year...
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
After custom installation, Elite Aquaria will continue to maintain your aquarium or pond. We also do emergency visits as well.
- What brands or products do you work with?
We work with all top Aquarium/Pond supply brands. Some are:
8 in 1
OCEAN STAR INTERNATIONAL

- What are the most frequent questions you get from customers? What are the answers?
We will have a FAQ/Blog section to our website, so continue to check in at www.elite-aquaria.com. FAQ/BLOG COMING SOON!
- What information do you recommend to have readily available before looking for a professional in your trade?
Just have an idea of what kind of aquascape (aquarium, pond, etc.) you'd like and an estimate budget- we'll do the rest!
- Tell us about the project or job that you are most proud of (in the last 12 months).
There are so many, and we are proud of all projects that we complete! Visit our website, as we plan to create a FAQ/BLOG page soon, so that you can keep up with our projects & successes!
- What types of jobs are the most common?
Because most installations also turn into long-term maintenance accounts, we tend to do more design, maintenance and consulting than installations themselves.
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
We wish you knew how awesome it is!
In all seriousness, what we do at Elite Aquaria is more of a passion than it is a job. Our wish comes true when we're able to pass that same passion along to our customers.

Elite Aquaria installed and maintains our 55 gallon saltwater aquarium here and we love it! The aquarium is in our lobby and everyone that enters the business raves about it! The tank has a reef, corals, exotic fish, inverts, etc. Two of our customers have already hired Elite Aquaria, after seeing our tank, and are just as happy as we are with it. If you're looking for a company to install and/or maintain your tank, I would recommend Elite Aquaria!- Mottani
