About us

Happy Reef keeping from Laura and Chris!

 PicO has been around in one fashion or another since 2006. We started out building pico and nano sized aquariums a few months out of the year. As the name got out there we started offering more products and sizes of aquariums and in 2013 decided to incorporate and go at it full time. We where growing really fast and on a roll until we lost our glass supplier in 2015. Other plans where discussed to keep PicO going but we decided to call it quits later that year. It was hard to walk away from the company we built from scratch and the loyal customers we gained along the way.

 After closing up shop we still continued to receive correspondence from previous customers and referrals. As anyone reading this well knows, this hobby gets in your blood and you can never get it out. We decided to answer a few emails and build a few accessories to help out our fellow reefers and BOOM it was just like riding a bike. 

 While we won't be building any tanks currently we thought we still had a lot to offer with the accessories and filtration inserts and much like our humble beginnings we are back to building part time out of our residence in central Illinois. Most items will be built in batches and available in quantity for shipping within 24 hours. Custom items will be built first come first serve. 

PicO has always been for reefers and built by reefers. It was your input that made every product work. 

PicO Aquarium Systems is back to pick up where we left off and we hope you are along for the ride...
