Bespoke Aquarium Build in Derbyshire

Bespoke Aquarium Build in Derbyshire

Our latest bespoke aquarium build in Derbyshire is this 30 inch cube fish tank. Once stocked it will contain a variety of saltwater fish and live corals.

An empty corner of a large hallway in our clients home provided a great space to house this marine tank.
Because the tank is both quite large and heavy, it was brought into the house via large patio doors at the rear of the property.

Aquarium Build and Installation

The tank measures 30″ long x 30″ deep x 34″ high which once the hood is fitted, gives the look of a true cube aquarium.
The tank stands on a gloss black cabinet which is built around a strong metal frame. Therefore this ensures the tanks weight is well supported.

After its placed and levelled we fit its custom life support filter system. Our filtration system is bespoke for the aquarium and is designed to be as automated as possible.

In addition, the tank is aqua-scaped with rock work and white coral sand. Unless we are given free reign, our client always has the option to give their opinion on how they’d like the finished aqua-scape to look.

Next, the system is filled with saltwater and commissioned. After which it’s left to operate for a period of 4-6 weeks. This allows the brand new pumps to bed in and also for the tank to mature, thus then being ready for the addition of livestock.

 

A powerful LED lamp is utilised to replicate the suns rays and so provide intense lighting for the live corals. Moreover, being wifi enabled, it links directly to our technicians phone. A lighting schedule is programmed to the lamp which simulates sunrise, midday sun, sunset and moonlight lunar cycles.

Custom Designer Aquarium in Derbyshire

Not our biggest, but certainly our most automated and quietest custom designer aquarium install.
Our brief for this marine tank project was to install a top end bespoke wall aquarium which would essentially ‘look after itself’ alongside our aquarium maintenance service.

The Tank Build

The build started by positioning the bare tank set up against our clients wall.

The build commences
We designed this bespoke coral system to utilise an empty fireplace to the rear of the tank. Through which we could install pipework that connects to a chiller unit. The chiller requires housing within a weather proof enclosure. This is positioned against the outside of the house but hidden from view. Temperature control is vital for a live coral reef aquarium.
The tank is positioned and levelled, then a rock aqua-scape is added. For this we used a combination of white coral sand, marine rock and branch to create a display the client was happy with.
We then turned out attention to installing the tanks life support filtration system and LED lighting.
The client budget allowed for high quality equipment. This includes pumps that run virtually silently, automation where possible and a 24/7 monitoring system.

Custom Designer Aquarium

Most reef aquariums will utilise pumps inside the display tank which are required to pump water around the tank in order to simulate waves and chaotic flow. As a result, this water movement is very important for the live corals and reef fish to thrive. Thus, on this custom tank install we have used variable flow pumps below the aquarium that suck water from the tank and return it straight back.
The pumps are programmed via our technicians phone to create random, wave like water flow.
Consequently, this type of aquarium design means there’s no pumps in the main display tank that might intrude on the finished product.
The aquarium requires a period of up to 10 weeks to mature. After which, we start adding the live corals and reef fish inhabitants.
Finally, cladding above the tank is complete to match the cabinets finish.
After which our aquarium cleaning service may commence. Aquarium maintenance services are of vital importance to a delicate system such as this.
In summary, if you do not have the time or experience to look after your fish tank we can provide a fully bespoke maintenance contract to ensure your tank is clean, healthy and enjoyable.
