            About the Aquascapes

The first step in PHASE 3 of the project will be to manufacture five (5) biotope Aquascapes displays; three of the ocean, and two of exotic freshwater fauna and flora found in the Amazon and Nile Rivers. Many more different kinds of displays are being planned.

The main bulk of each Aquascape will be constructed by Al Rios and David Sliom. As a donor, you will allow them to purchase materials and manufactured fish and plant replicas through companies like Living Color Aquariums in Ft. Lauderdale, FL., and New Wave Taxidermy in Stewart, FL.  Each manufactured replica will be made from durable polymer, resins, and fiberglass. The paints used are specifically made for underwater, and will not harm nor damage the environment in any way.

Each Aquascape will be a masterful work of art. They will be sturdy, durable, true-to-life, museum quality displays.

You may donate funds for one or more of them. Simply designate your preference during the time an Aquascape is being constructed.

At this point, it’s difficult to know the precise cost needed to manufacture each Aquascape. Based on one already constructed in 2017 and submerged at Silver Lake Quarry in Haymarket, Va. (for video presentation purposes), each will probably cost around $5,000.

As a contributor to constructing an Aquascape, your name will be engraved on a metal plaque and placed on the Wall of Contributors. It will also be included in our company’s legacy documents, and registered with the Aquascape you allowed us to create through your generosity! Thank you.
