Aquarium Set Up
Aquarium set up and the initial build up of bacteria can be a daunting task, especially for the inexperienced and elderly. We will set up your aquarium from scratch including filtration, lighting, decor, stand construction, substrate rinse and landscaping. We will also source and stock your aquarium if you require. We offer a one off set up or full support through the entire Nitrogen Cycle. This service is offered to freshwater and marine aquariums.
There’s never enough time in the day and we are here to help you maintain that beautiful aquarium so you can enjoy its benefits without any hassle. Maintenance involves general cleaning from the substrate and filter to a glass clean and water change with everything in-between. This is best as a weekly service for the well being of your fish but we also offer one off cleans. This service applies to marine and freshwater aquariums.
This is a increasing hobby and increasingly complicated which is why we offer a service that will provide you with everything you need. Lighting, CO2 and nutrient management as well as landscaping, pruning, stocking and general maintenance.
The Rolls Royce of aquarium set ups both in appearance and price. This is why we will tend to all your reef needs. We will fully maintain your reef through proper nutrient, light and stock management, we will bring RO water to you as well as source the most exotic and usually LPS and SPS corals and fish.
Oddballs and rarities are always in great demand in the aquatics hobby but can be annoyingly difficult to track down, I have contacts with fish farms and private breeders all over the globe so providing there are no restrictions on your specific animal I will find it for you.
This is something which will happen to everyone from the experienced to the less so and it can strike at a moments notice. We are always on call for such emergencies and should you not be able to diagnose or medicate the aquarium yourself please call us, every minute matters. This is very useful out of retail hours when medication and RO water is hard to get.
