Growing up on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Golan Binder quickly developed a fondness for the ocean. That love of aquatic life didn’t dissipate when he moved to Los Angeles. So after years of enjoying aquariums as a hobbyist, he decided to launch his own business, Oceans Aquarium.
Today, Golan and his team design, install, and maintain saltwater aquariums of all sizes. Their approach is meticulous. They make sure that the tank’s equipment can’t be heard from across the room. They design layouts that draw attention to the fish. They minimize the presence of the equipment without even hiring a magician to make it disappear. Projects can range from a little 10-gallon tank for the office to an elaborate living-reef environment replete with fish, shrimp, starfish, snails, and coral.
