We have been servicing aquariums in Sydney for over 20 years now. Much of our work involves regular ongoing maintenance schedules. We also consult and do one-off aquarium services, overhauls, installations and filter or equipment upgrades.
We are not simply just a fish tank cleaning service.
We use our expertise to optimize aquariums from a long -term perspective. Clients on a regular service schedule get the added benefit of things we can implement to improve their aquarium. We document any non-stock items, fish and plants useful for future visits. These are then provided on the next service schedule. We do however have a large range of products and decorative aquatics plants on hand as standard.
Our aim is to leave each aquarium looking bright, colourful with a creative touch.
Aquariums do best with regular maintenance.
Regular maintenance of fish tanks ensures fish and plants are much healthier and heavily reduces any chances of issues relating to filters or equipment. Nitrate is the end-product of the biological cycle in a fish tank. This builds up continually over time. Regular water changes, gravel cleaning and filter servicing are needed to counteract this. This keeps nitrate levels at an acceptable level and maintains a well-balanced aquatic environment.
The ideal frequency of maintenance can be determined by simply checking nitrate levels to see if they are within a good range.
Most aquariums do reasonably well on a 4 weekly schedule.
How often a fish tank needs care depends on how heavily it is stocked, the sensitivity of the fish and the overall level of presentation required.
What to expect from an aquarium service?
Aquarium services usually involve cleaning the gravel, changing a percentage of the water, servicing filters, pruning plants, checking water chemistry and adjusting parameters accordingly.
We usually have a stock of aquatics plants if needed to give the fish tank that bit of extra colour and life.
We also comprehensively asses the aquarium and look at what can be done to improve the overall appearance, fish health and long-term maintenance of the aquarium.
Any non-stock items are recorded and organised for future visits. This includes fish, plants, equipment, fish food and any other related items. Some things may seem small but can have a really big impact on a fish tank over time. They are after all ecosystems on a micro level.
