Event Fish Tank Hire

A recent commission to provide a short term event fish tank hire for a 2 day ‘pop up’ event to raise awareness of Thomas Cooks recent launch of a direct flight from Manchester to Tobago. This event was to take place within one of the open malls at Manchester’s Trafford Centre.

Event Fish Tank Hire -- the brief

The brief for this project was to create a unique experience for visitors to the event. Thus, a photo booth fish tank was proposed. The aquarium design was tall so that visitors would be able to stand behind it, and take fun photos giving an underwater appearance to the photograph. Free to enter fun games and competitions were held all day long.
The custom aquarium installation took place through the night at the Trafford Centre ensuring it was ready for use on time the next day. A bleary eyed Ocean Life team finally finished at 4am the morning of the event!
In summary, the event was a great success with the fish tank attracting lots of attention and lots of photos being taken.

The Aquarium Design

Designed for public use, the custom aquarium tank is manufactured from 30mm thick acrylic. Acrylic is a very strong material as well as being very clear. This makes it ideal for a public showcase aquarium. Furthermore, complete stability is ensured via a fully welded steel frame.

Peacock cichlids

Peacock cichlids are a good example of a type of fish suitable for aquarium rental. Uniquely, these fish are very colourful and especially active. Thus, giving a nice attractive display. We supply an Ocean Life technician to be on hand during the whole day. This technician monitors the fishes welfare and ensure filtration is functioning correctly. Upon the event finishing, the tank is removed by our team and the fish are then rested for a period of 2 days in our own dedicated holding tanks.
