I first met Raf when the person maintaining my aquarium was leaving and he was the recommendation. After a few visits, I knew he was a keeper. The Aquarium always looked great when he left and he and his team were always courteous and kind.
Shortly after starting, we transformed my 220 gallon aquarium to a live tank with beautiful live rock from Fiji and it has been going strong ever since. He has responded to a couple of emergencies super quick and saved the day.
This year we replaced that aquarium with a new one and that was a huge job. It was done extremely well, including handling all the purchasing and creation of the custom aquarium. We did not lose a single fish or coral during the entire move process.
We are super happy with the Aquatic Escapes team!

We have a 120 gallon aquarium that for many years was running without fish, just heated and filtered. Too busy to restock and maintain it. We recently called in Raf, owner of Aquatic Escapes, to assess our setup and make his recommendations. He proposed changing our freshwater tank to a saltwater reef aquarium and followed up with a detailed quote that looked after everything, from emptying the old tank to restocking it with living rock, corals and fish.
The results have been truly amazing! We are very impressed with the beauty of our new tank. Raf will be adding additional fish, corals etc. in the weeks ahead, which will continue to enhance the overall aesthetics. He will also be maintaining our tank on an ongoing basis.
Raf is a total professional. He follows up in a timely manner, carries out his work with utmost care and is very knowledgeable. We highly recommend the services of Aquatic Escapes.
Aquatic Escapes have been looking after my 220 gallon saltwater reef tank for about 4 years now. They helped me source the tank and stand, completely set everything up, and regularly maintain it. If it wasn't for them I wouldn't be able to have a tank. I've always found them to be professional, prompt, and very knowledgable. I would highly recommend them!
I’m so happy I hired Raf for home aquarium maintenance. Punctual, professional, and personable. He got rid of stubborn algae that was on the back wall of my tank for ages, and provided me with useful advice on how to better manage it.
Raf completely transformed my tank. Before I hired him, my tank was very sad. My fish were happy but I could not get any coral to live. With one visit, he knew what to do. From that point on, my tank has never looked better. Raf really knows what he is doing. He is professional, knowledgeable and reliable. I could not be happier. Highly recommend!!!
We’ve had Raf and his expert staff serving our tanks for years. Always friendly and knowledgeable. Raf and his crew do an amazing job of cleaning our tanks and educating us. HIGHLY recommend these guys!
Have been using Aquatic escapes for 7 years now. They give great advice and are very accommodating. And they do a great job cleaning my abnormally oversized tank.
Amazing Service. If the fish aren't doing well, neither are the staff at Aquatic Escapes, they care about the maintenance of the fish. Would highly recommend them. Any time I have questions or concerns, they get back to me promptly.
I have been their customer more than one year, they do really good job! !!
The staff at Aquatic Escapes are all so reliable and friendly. Our tank looks amazing! Highly recommended!
Raf and his crew are great. Reliable, trustworthy and experienced. I’d highly recommend them.
Thanks so much for helping me to setup my tank. Great service, always on time and when I have any questions, I always get a quick reply.
Raf came and renovated our tank, and we couldn’t be happier!
Very professional and thorough service. Above and beyond!
