Custom Fish Tank Build in Manchester

As part of this complete home refurbishment we were delighted to be asked to install a bespoke in wall aquarium. This custom fish tank build in Manchester was commissioned by our client to be a tropical live planted tank. Our client had some previous experience with this type of aquarium. Because they were now refurbing their home it was a great opportunity to install a larger bespoke aquarium.

The Aquarium Build

This aquarium measures long x deep x high. The tank is manufactured in 15mm thick bevelled edge glass. It has ultra clear panes on its 3 viewable sides, and a bit more unusual, an external weir box on the wall side. An external weir box is hidden from view and allows water flow from the tank to the sump filtration system.

We use one of our extremely strong metal frame supports for this tank. It allows for complete support of the aquarium whilst allowing a large space below the aquarium for the filtration system.

Aquarium Delivery

Next we have the enviable task of getting our bespoke fish tank to the rear of the property. The tank was too large to fit through the front door and so we utilised patio doors at the rear. The scariest moment was squeezing the tank down the side of the house, contending with an uneven path and a gate at the end. Our guys have loads of experience in moving large tanks, we also have several lifting tables which are invaluable. Something to consider if you want your own bespoke aquarium is whether it fits into your home or business? We also build on-site fish tanks if they are particularly large.

With the tank now in position and fitting the gap with a few millimetres to spare, we can relax ๐Ÿ™‚

Aquarium Theme

The theme for this wall aquarium is freshwater tropical. It will eventually contain a variety of tropical fish and live plants. We have installed intense LED lighting over the tank to promote vigorous plant growth. To encourage plant growth even further, we have incorporated into this aquarium design an automatic fertiliser dosing system and Co2 gas injection. Both these systems are completely automated. The entire fish tank set up will be maintained by our technician during a monthly service visit.

The Tanks Custom Theme

As part of our part of our bespoke aquarium installations we are able to offer custom themes. In this case, because our client is in the energy supply market we added pylons and wind turbines to the tank.

Please keep an eye on our blog for progress updates of this tank and our other current projects.
