A look back on a story well worth its salt... 

Excellence is built up step by step. A memory of intuitions and experiences, it reflects a passion, woven from the weft of time. 
Founded in 1964Aquarium Systems bases its expertise on long, meticulous practice, which was very quickly endorsed by the scientific community. Instant Ocean, its flagship sea salt, was its first product: still today, it remains a reference in scientific research, endorsed by thousands of users.

In 1966, in the United States, the Niagara Falls aquarium called on the services of Aquarium Systems for the construction and operation of a public aquarium using exclusively reconstituted seawater: a first! 
A challenge successfully taken up, which was very quickly relayed to the Mystic Marinelife Aquarium in the State of Connecticut.

In 1978Aquarium Systems took a decisive step forward in the development of its marine salts. The reproduction and breeding of clown fish at the hatchery that helped us to refine a technique which has since more than made its mark. It was at that very moment that Alain Bertschy met Professor Bruno Condé, a zoologist, eminent naturalist and founder of the Museum Aquarium in Nancy, who was particularly interested in this approach, following "nature as closely as possible".

A few years' research resulted in 1983 in the first production of marine salt, Instant Ocean, on theAquarium Systems premises on the rue Gambetta in Sarrebourg (FR).

Solid foundations, winning formulations

In 1986Aquarium Systems offered a brand new concept dedicated to aquarium heating systems: a settings scale integrated in the device, for simplified use available to all. 
Three years later, the Visi-Jet pump was developed. A totally new concept at the time: a pump with a settings device fitted with a flowrate readout. 
In 1990, the first Reef Crystals mixtures were developed in the United States. Especially recommended for reef aquariums, Reef Crystals is an innovative mixture of enriched marine salt, which contains an extra dose of calcium, vitamins and selected trace elements, and a neutraliser to eradicate the hazards presented by heavy metals in the domestic water supply. 
As for coral, it should be noted that, at that time, using dead coral as a decorative element was common practice. 

Committed to a policy of species valorisation and protection, Aquarium Systems wanted to concentrate on the development of fibreglass for this purpose. The manufacture of artificial coral was entrusted to fishermen as part of a community support project in the Philippines.
