Twin Aquarium Installation in Altrincham, Cheshire.

We are a Cheshire fish tank installer and we’re pleased to be commissioned to replace this restaurants two aquariums with brand new custom fish tanks.

Cheshire Fish Tank Installer

The aquarium install started with the removal of one of the old tanks. The fish were temporarily housed in our dedicated storage tank which monitors water temperate and oxygenates the water. With the fish happy we could then entirely remove the old fish tank set up.
The area was then cleaned in preparation for the new custom fish tank to be installed. The new tanks were built off-site in our dedicated workshop. They were to sit over a step and so precise measurements were taken prior, to ensure a good fit.
After fitting the first new aquarium we added its decoration and filled it with a mix of matured and fresh water. Once this water was at correct PH and temperature the fish were added to their new home. To ensure the tank did not suffer from ‘new tank syndrome’ we used some of the old mature filter media from the old tank within the filter of the new one.

Setting up a New Aquarium?

New tank syndrome as its name suggests is a condition which mainly affects new fish tanks. It occurs when there is insufficient bacteria present to cope with the amount of fish stock in the aquarium. The bacteria needed to breakdown all the wastes produced by fish take several weeks to colonise a new aquarium. If fish are added before the bacteria are present in sufficient numbers, then the levels of ammonia and nitrite will rise. When this happens the tank is said to be suffering from new tank syndrome. This can lead to fish stress or even death.
There are several brands of bacterial supplements readily available which are great for helping the fish tanks filter colonise with the bacterias required for filtration.
To install the second custom tank the same process was followed. Both tanks are lit by automated LED lighting which gives a realistic looking display.
We had great feedback from our client who also opted to further employ us to provide our on-going aquarium maintenance service in Cheshire. The tanks are monitored weekly for the next 4 weeks, after which, cleaning the aquariums commences once per month via an aquarium maintenance contract.

Fish Tank Maintenance Service in Cheshire

Our fish tank maintenance service in Cheshire, today servicing a phone box fish tank!

This client initially contacted us to see it we could provide our fish tank maintenance service in Cheshire. They had requested that it was urgency as they thought their filter was not working.  We have many clients in Cheshire and so were able to act quickly to arrange an appointment to service this aquarium.
Upon arrival we diagnosed that the filter was still operating but it was quite badly clogged up with tank detritus, and thus it’s water flow was very reduced. After a filter clean and water change there was an instant visual improvement in the fish as they were a lot more active.
Maintaining a clean filter is very important for the health of your fish as the filter is mainly responsible for processing the fish’s waste products.

If your filter becomes clogged with a build up of fish waste it not only looses water flow and cannot process enough water. But also the filter media within it looses its surface area which bacteria live on. These bacteria’s are vital in processing fish waste products.
When cleaning your filter, never use tap water to clean your filter media’s. Chlorine in tap water will kill these bacteria so always use tank water to clean your media. Additionally, if your filter has a pump, you should clean out the pumps impeller assembly as these often become dirty and this results in a loss of flow.
Our fish tank maintenance service in Cheshire is available to both residential and commercial clients. We have the expertise to maintain cold water, tropical or marine aquariums of any size.

Cleaning a Large Custom Aquarium in Leeds

Our first job of the week. Cleaning this large custom aquarium at a school in Leeds. This is an acrylic fish tank which makes it extremely tough and robust.

However, even though acrylic is more durable than glass, it is also softer than glass. This downside means it can be prone to scratching easily if not cleaned with the correct techniques.
We clean all our acrylic tanks with algae magnets, sponges and pads which are designed for use on acrylic. These are usually made of a softer material. Its recommended that you rinse your cleaning magnet/pad regularly whilst performing cleaning as even a build up of algae may cause light scratching.

For taking time and care of cleaning your acrylic tank, is the reward of seeing it sparkle with transparency that glass cannot replicate.

Small acrylic tanks are more costly than similar sized glass tanks. With larger acrylic tanks sometimes being more cost effective.

We can supply acrylic tanks of most shapes and sizes.
Please contact us with any design or idea you may have.
