Reef Aquarium Installation and Servicing
We are pleased to provide photos of our clients’ fabulous reef tank. This coral reef display mainly contains stony corals. These bright corals are challenging to grow and so we advise only housing these corals with the aid of additional filtration. The reef was installed by ourselves and we maintain it via our fish tank maintenance service. We utilised structured plates bonded to the rear of the tank which provide lots of positions to mount corals. As well as giving depth to the aquarium.
Part of the coral aquariums design incorporates lighting and filtration specifically chosen to cater for this delicate corals requirements. These stony corals prefer water brightly lit and low in nutrients. Powerful LED lighting hangs over the aquarium. This is controlled wirelessly. We use an over rated protein skimmer which efficiently strips the tanks water of nutrients.
A special type of filter in employed to effectively dissolve a coral gravel. This action releases the elements such as calcium and magnesium into the water. Therefore, providing them ready for encouraging further coral growth.
Lastly, vigorous water flow within the tank is achieved via 2 variable flow, wave maker pumps. And so this replicates the turbid regions on a natural reef where the corals can be found. All stony corals housed have been grown from small fragments raised on coral farms.
Our fish tank maintenance service for this client is provided once per month. This service combined with the clients input ensures the steady growth of these stunning corals.
