Below are the most commonly asked questions regarding our bespoke aquariums – if there is anything else you would like to know, please get in touch and we will be happy to respond promptly.
If you are looking for an amazing feature for your home or business but don’t have a preference then we would normally recommend a tropical aquarium as the set up costs are a lot less and maintenance is required less often. We have supplied many tropical aquariums with a marine theme which look very effective. If you definitely want a marine aquarium then of course we can supply and install this.
Typically it just takes a few hours. Even when we install a large aquarium and have to build it on site this is normally completed within half a day.
We can use standard or optiwhite float glass. The thickness of the glass we use will depend on the overall dimensions, particularly the height. For example an aquarium of up to 75cm H is made in 12mm glass, 90cm H in 15mm glass and up to 110cm H in 19mm glass.
Typically we will deliver your aquarium within 4 weeks of your order.
Yes we usually need a 50% deposit as all our aquariums are built to order.
This depends on access and on the size of the aquarium, in particular the height. Generally any aquarium over 250cm long or above 100cm high is built on site due to its weight and bulk. Having said this, every installation is different so we would consider this during an earlier visit.
Normally we can begin stocking your aquarium within about 10 days although this is closer to 3 weeks with a built on site aquarium as the silicon needs a couple of weeks to cure before we can fill it.
Yes in most cases, although in the case of a built on site aquarium we would need to consider if this is cost effective as it may need to be dismantled and rebuilt.
Typically we service tropical aquariums every 4-6 weeks , although with some home aquariums we do this as infrequently as 3 monthly with a little work by our customers between visits. Marine aquariums generally need servicing every 2-3 weeks.
Yes reasonably easy and we can show you the ropes and offer you good advice when we install the aquarium.
