COST has been actively involved in aquatic habitat fabrication since 1957 and a proud member of the AZA for over 30 years. Our work in public and private, freshwater and saltwater, aquariums spans the globe. Underwater exhibits vary by region from river basins to brackish waters to ocean coral reefs. COST site personnel have extensive knowledge in creating these immersive environments and many other specialty aquatic environments. Materials used in these habitats are animal safe, durable, fade resistant, and highly realistic.
Simulated coral is available through our abundant cast library and through custom fabrication. Our current library of Atlantic, Pacific, Indian Ocean, and Red Sea coral casts provide specific authenticity to any underwater environment. COST’s coral specialist is also an avid diver. His knowledge of coral placement and configuration ensures that any reef project will rival that of natural reefs found around the world. COST crews also install acrylic windows and life support systems providing a complete scope of services for aquarium projects both large and small.
