A routine maintenance program can be designed to assure the aesthetic beauty of your aquarium and to provide a healthy environment for its inhabitants.

I can provide a selection of brackish, marine and reef specimens for your aquarium. I carefully inspect them to assure that everything placed in your aquarium is healthy and of the best quality. I properly acclimate each specimen to help reduce stress caused by shipping. To avoid problems, I assess the compatibility of the specimen with your aquarium's current inhabitants. I follow the standard practices of American Marinelife Dealers Association (AMDA) for stocking aquariums. http://www.amdareef.com

 

Since saltwater and brackish setup need more attention I setup a weekly visit to make sure everything is balanced and catch any issues before they get out of control.

Each Visit includes:

  • Clean exterior and interior aquarium surfaces.
  • Maintain the aquarium’s substrate.
  • Maintenance and cleaning of the life support system.
  • Clean overflow filtration pads.
  • Empty Protein Skimmer collection cup.
  • Clean covers and light fixtures of algae and salt deposits.
  • Check color, smell and temperature of water.
  • Water test (Ammonia, Nitrites, Nitrates, & pH).
  • Visual check of fish for head-count, disease, swimming and breathing rates.
  • Visual checks of equipment, air, and water flow.
