Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I have my tank serviced?

A: We recommend at least once or twice a month for freshwater aquariums and at least twice a month for marine aquariums.

Are saltwater aquariums more difficult than freshwater aquariums?

A: In general, yes they are.  They both need to be serviced on a regular basis. Marine animals are for the most part more delicate and sensitive to aquarium conditions. Reef tanks especially require special lighting, excellent flow and filtration to thrive.

I lost all my fish when I changed the water (freshwater). What did I do wrong?

Usually this is because the change was too drastic. If you wait a long time to change the water and change too much, the difference in temperature, ph, etc. can literally put the fish into shock.

Aren’t aquariums expensive?

They don’t have to be. We can work with almost any budget to create and maintain an aquarium you will enjoy for years to come.
