That’s why we deliver a totally comprehensive Premier Aquarium Rental Service where all that’s left for you to do is sit back, and enjoy the fish!
Our Aquarium Rental Service is inclusive of the following:
Following delivery and installation of your chosen aquarium model, the fish tank is allowed to settle and the water quality mature for a minimum period of 10 days. The first batch of livestock is then introduced.
For coldwater and tropical fish, this level is gradually increased over a period of 2-3 months so that livestock levels reach desired capacity as the tank fully matures.
A marine aquarium takes at least 6 months to reach maturity and is not a process which can be rushed. But with the right amount of patience, care and attention, the end result is spectacular and well worth the wait.
A regular maintenance schedule is agreed (weekly/fortnightly/monthly) and a visit is pre-booked accordingly.
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.
Marine aquarium maintenance is more frequent (twice weekly/weekly) and more involved as the water levels require close monitoring to ensure your livestock remain happy.
Our Aquarium Rental package includes the supply of coldwater or tropical fish. We can also stock your aquarium with marine livestock but at extra charge.
Any fish requiring specialised treatment are removed and placed into holding tanks. Replacements are provided on the next monthly visit, or when next appropriate.
Supply of chemicals and fishfood
Stocks of fish food and aquarium chemicals are included and supplied as required. Autofeeders are checked, cleaned and restocked on a monthly basis, providing 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.
A diet of frozen food will be provided for marine livestock for which autofeeders are not suitable on a long term basis. Full instructions will be given on the required daily feeding routine.
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.
Silk plants and column tank garlands are replenished on a monthly visit as required.
