Providing Aquarium Maintenance Services in Manchester
Performing fish tank cleaning service in Manchester on a custom wall aquarium. This client advised that they would soon be decorating their lounge where the tank is situated. This was the perfect time for us to come in and give this marine reef tank a deep clean.
From our initial aquarium installation this tank has flourished. However, we recommend a deep clean of a marine aquarium at least once per year. This will keep the system operating smoothly and livestock growth rates high.

A deep clean of an aquarium system is also a good opportunity to take the time to inspect the tanks pumps. Even the most expensive pumps may experience wear and tear over time. In this case a small crack is discovered in the internal casing of one of the pumps. Whilst not an immediate problem, it is however, recommended that the pump is replaced during a subsequent service visit.
Often overlooked is an aquariums pipework system.
We use pipe brushes to flush out debris that adhears to the internal wall of the pipe. Ball valves and couplings should be inspected for leaks. These types of fittings will contain an O ring which may need replacement.
We inspect flexible pipe as this may become brittle over time. Furthermore, we inspect all hose clips/clamps to ensure a tight seal and no corrosion/cracking is occurring.

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.
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.
