Saltwater Coral Fish Tank in Cheshire

APRIL 2018 UPDATE: Commissioned by a residential client to build them a custom reef aquarium, this saltwater coral fish tank in Cheshire was  installed in early 2016.

Since the aquarium installation, we have provided our fish tank maintenance service once per month. Ensuring the tank has grown well, guiding our client and giving advice when required.

The newly installed aquarium in 2016

This marine aquarium contains mostly hard corals which can be tricky to grow. However, with the use of specialist filtration it’s possible to grow these brightly coloured corals with great success. Once they are growing strongly it’s possible to take cuttings from the parent coral. These fragments can be used to start new colony’s in the aquarium or even sold to other hobbyists.

Now in April 2018 the tank is filled with life.

Even though this marine aquarium installation is more complex than an average tank, the basic rules of a happy reef fish tank are still followed:
• Stable water chemistry
• Stable water temperature of 25 degrees.
• Vigorous water flow, here provided by pulse flow pumps.
• Strong lighting provided by AI Hydra LED lamps.
• Regular water testing.

However, these corals also require a little extra care when it comes to water chemistry as alkalinity, calcium and magnesium levels also require monitoring. This was the one of the reasons our client employed our aquarium cleaning service.
We carry precise testing equipment for both freshwater and saltwater tanks. We can also send water samples for laboratory testing if required.

As this bespoke tank has grown we have provided on-going advice to our client on new advances in the hobby. As fish keeping technology moves on so does new filtration equipment and techniques. Therefore, all of our fish tank maintenance clients will at some point be offered upgrades for their aquariums. We only offer an upgrade where we see it will make a significant improvement to a tank and it’s livestock.
