Our Platinum Monthly Aquarium Maintenance Service is inclusive of the following:
A monthly maintenance visit is booked in advance and occurs around the same date each month.
A maintenance visit begins with a check of livestock and water levels, with chemical treatments added as required. A routine 20% water change is performed and aquascaping renewed if required.
Supply of livestock
Our Platinum Maintenance package includes the supply of coldwater or tropical fish. We can also stock your aquarium with marine livestock but at extra charge (see our Marine fish tank cleaning service).
Any fish requiring specialised treatment are removed and placed into our holding tanks. Replacements are provided on the next monthly visit.
The stocking level of new aquariums will be increased gradually over a period of 2-3 months whilst the tank matures and fish will be closely monitored as their numbers increase to maintain a healthy balance.
Supply of chemicals and fishfood
Stocks of fish food and aquarium chemicals are replenished as required. Autofeeders are checked, cleaned and restocked on a monthly basis. Food types may be rotated to provide your fish with a varied diet.
If your aquarium does not suit an autofeeder, we will provide full feeding instruction as it is crucial with any aquarium not to over-feed your fish. Feeding blocks can be supplied to cover holiday periods.
Decor replenished bi-monthly or as required
Gravel and sand beds are turned as required and rinsed or replenished if necessary. Gravel in aquariums using undergravel filtration is rinsed and cleaned using water from the aquarium only and not replaced as this would be detrimental to the filtration system.
Silk plants and column tank garlands are replenished on a monthly visit as required.
Free call out (Mon-Fri)
Our Platinum Maintenance package includes free callout (Mon-Fri) giving the customer comprehensive cover and peace of mind. An engineer is sent on site within 24-72 hours, depending on the urgency of the matter.
Free replacement of worn electrical parts
Worn or faulty electrical parts are replaced as required to ensure that the aquarium functions at maximum efficiency.
If a fault occurs in between scheduled maintenance visits, an engineer is sent on site within 24-72 hours depending on the urgency of the matter, as per our weekday callout service.
