Keep it Clean- your guide to Aquarium Maintenance

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Aquariums tend to get a bad rep…

When you hear the word aquarium maintenance, if you’re like me, you have images come back of your father spilling buckets in the hallway of your childhood home while your mother curses in the background. Hoses everywhere, tangled airlines and cords, salt creep all over everything, and the algae–not the most positive experience. If only there would have been a company like Reliant Aquarium Design back then, we could have saved my dad a lot of headaches.

Aquarium maintenance usually breaks down into water changes to control things like nitrate and other toxins, the changing of media like carbon to ensure water quality, algae control to keep the tank looking fresh, and of course fish and/or coral nutrition and monitoring to ensure happy livestock. The health of your equipment is as important as the health of your tank inhabitants, and in turn must be monitored and checked frequently as well. Recognition of an issue before it becomes a problem is one of the most valuable tools in anything, and especially in aquariums.

If this all seems like a lot, well, it is. An aquarium is not something to take lightly- they are a lot of work and if not done correctly can end in disaster. But through consistent maintenance and care, they can become the most rewarding part of your home. And just as you wouldn’t run your car for a long period of time without an oil change and service, your aquarium is the same.

Aquarium Design

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The modern world of aquarium design is almost unrecognizable from the old days of a goldfish in a bowl.

Complex systems that support a vast array of fish, invertebrates and coral can bring a piece of the world from across the globe into your living room.

Freshwater, saltwater, reefs…the choice is yours when it comes to aquarium design. Would you like a beautiful reef, with coral and clownfish, or perhaps a freshwater system with a vast array of African lake fish and rocks…the possibilities are endless.

Maybe you’d like a planted tank, with a collection of brightly colored underwater fauna. A system like this, much like a reef, can also require special dosing and light needs. It also requires finding inhabitants that won’t make lunch out of your nice plants as well.

If you have an office, a gorgeous nano system may be what your looking for. These all in one systems bring a lot of beauty to a small space, and will immediately add life and intrigue to your office or waiting room. Smaller aquariums require closer monitoring, but your friends at Reliant Aquarium Design are here for just that reason!

We can guide you every step of the way in your aquarium design journey (it’s in our name after all!) finding a system that’s right for you and your lifestyle. Hands on or off, we can design a maintenance program that supplements as much or little as you want to do with our reliable and friendly technicians.
