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.

 

Aquarium install
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.

Saltwater fish tank supplier
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.

What an Aquarium can bring to your office environment

An aquarium fish tank installation can totally transform your your office. Once in place, it will bring numerous benefits with it. Here are four advantages that an aquarium installation can bring to your office environment.

  1. Variety

The movements of colourful fish, the waving of luscious green weeds, and even the bubbling motion of the water through the aquarium filter will all help to add a sense of variety to your office environment. If you place the aquarium in a spot where clients or other people will be waiting – such as your office’s lobby – this varied aquatic environment will give them something interesting to look at and significantly reduce the possibility that they will become frustrated or bored if they need to wait to be seen for any reason.

  1. A personal touch

There is something very individual about an aquarium – it helps to add a sense of personality to any office. Giving your aquarium fish names, or adding a few quirky decorations into the aquarium will enable you to show off a more creative side to your office’s personality.

  1. A positive brand image

A clean and well kept aquarium will help to project a very positive image for your brand or company because it will show that you care. Many psychological studies have found that we tend to associate animal lovers and people with cherished pets with good qualities such as kindness, empathy, caring, and a sociable and down to earth attitude. These are certainly qualities that you would like to have associated with your company, too. In order to ensure that you project this advantageous image, though, it is crucial to ensure that your aquarium installation is kept in excellent condition, filled with clear water and healthy and happy fish.

  1. Keeping your staff happy

The presence of animals in any workplace environment has been shown to increase the happiness of the staff. Similar positive effects have also been found in schools and universities, where therapy dogs or other special therapy animals have been used to help to calm down students feeling stressed out during the exam period. An aquarium installed in your office will help to calm the people working there, and dissipate any stress amongst the workforce. Similar effects are experienced when office buildings provide their staff with a beautiful natural view – this is part of the power of nature: it is able to calm our minds as we are working.

Time to consider an aquarium for your office?

The list above is by no means exhaustive: there are many other advantages that an aquarium can bring to your office environment. If you have been looking for ways to transform your work space, an aquarium could well be the perfect solution. Start exploring options, choosing fish and aquarium designs today – and make sure that you have someone to care for the aquarium too.
