Aquarium Structure Cleaning

We take pride in exceeding expectations with every cabinetry, acrylic/glass, pond and water feature cleaning service we provide, and our work is guaranteed. If you are unhappy with your results for any reason, we’ll come back and re-clean the area in question to your satisfaction and at no additional cost to you. In addition, we’re happy to customize a cleaning package to meet your particular needs and provide a free estimate of associated costs when you contact our office.

Aquarium Interior Cleaning

Unlike aquarium structure cleaning, we take cleaning a bit further with decorations, artificial structures, real rock, everything. We also provide professional, deep cleaning treatments with comprehensive cleaning solutions that are safe for your fish, coral, invertebrates, as well as advanced equipment. Our certified technicians use only the most state of the art, high-efficiency tools, and green cleaning products. Our experts are also highly trained in cleaning several types of aquarium including pond ornaments, waterfront features, and many others.

Substrate Cleaning

We won’t lecture you on the importance of regular tank maintenance, especially when it comes to the substrate. The easiest way to keep an aquarium clean is to get a clean-up crew. I’m not talking about “us” your aquarium maintenance team member that comes over to clean your tank. I’m referring to the unsung heroes of reef aquaria—the snails, hermit crabs, shrimp and the like—who slither, scuttle and swim around your tank keeping the sand bed, rock work, and even other animals clean. Lucky for you we offer a full range of livestock and services to keep your substrate nice and clean.

Parameter Testing & Dosing

The ocean is a stew of nearly every element found on earth. One of the most important aspects of reef keeping is keeping these levels in their appropriate ranges.

There is, however, no standard rule for all corals since soft corals do not consume anywhere close to the amount of calcium an acropora would per cubic centimeter. The only two rules that hold true for everything is ONLY DOSE WHAT YOU TEST FOR and NEVER DOSE MULTIPLE THINGS SIMULTANEOUSLY!

We test and dose based on the parameters that are right for your specific needs, ensuring your fish, coral, and invertebrates are happy and healthy.

Livestock Delivery

We receive a lot of questions from people wanting aquarium fish, coral, and invertebrates.

Aquarium fish come from all regions of the world, with aquatic cultured (farm-raised) specimens primarily from South East Asia or Florida. Obviously, great care has to be taken to get these fish, coral, and invertebrates to your home or business safely.

Once at your location we assist with acclimating the new fish into your home aquarium. In terms of stress on the fish, the acclimation time is the most critical. You need to get the fish acclimated to the water parameters of your tank. The acclimation time allows the water temperature to equalize, and ideally the pH and salinity (for marine fish) to also adjust. We take care of the whole process and guarantee the cost of the fish, coral, and invertebrates.

Food (Dry or Frozen)

In the wild, fish have very specific diets. Fortunately, most species will do very well without the exact food items they would select in nature.

It is important only to know if the fish you keep are herbivorous (eating plants), carnivorous (eating animals), or omnivorous (eating both). There are many different commercially prepared foods that can be used in your fishes’ diet, and most of the choice is up to your preference and convenience.

We provide the food; whether it’s flakes, pellets, frozen krill, or silversides to name a few, we tailor the food to your livestock.

Filtration and Plumbing

Aquarium filtration and plumbing should be quiet, keep the water surface in motion for oxygen exchange, remove floating debris from the water (mechanical filtration), convert ammonia from fish respiration, waste, and leftover food into nitrate (biological filtration), remove strange odors and invasive chemicals (chemical filtration), kill free-floating algae and parasites (sterilization), and heat the water in a tropical tank for tropical animals.

Keeping your filtration and plumbing in proper working order is essential to a happy and healthy aquarium. If you are having issues with any part of your filtration and plumbing give us a call, we have technician ready to assist you.

Health and Inspection

If you care for fish properly, disease rarely occurs. However, on the occasions when a fish does become ill, it’s important you contact us sooner rather than later to avoid expensive mistakes. We can supply you with solutions for your fish health, disease, treatment, and prevention.

Before introducing any fish, coral, and invertebrates into your tank, allow us to do it for you. This small step increases the rate of survival, and also limits any issues that may come up.

Introducing new animals into your new setup without inspection may cause problems. Remember your filter will need to build up friendly bacteria to break down the byproducts from your fish.

Treatment Recommendations

There are hundreds of afflictions that can affect the health of your fish. The most common maladies seen in home aquaria are usually either bacterial or parasitic in origin. Fungal infections are also sometimes seen, and occasionally physical ailments.

Luckily, most fish ailments are quickly diagnosed and treated with success. Our team can treat the most common of these afflictions.

Understanding how an aquarium and its filtration work to support aquatic life is vital in preventing fish ailments. The basics of life support are the same whether you have a freshwater aquarium or a saltwater aquarium.

We’re versed in symptoms of fish illnesses and know which treatments/medications (like copper dosing) and practices (like freshwater dipping) are right for each situation.

Trust is everything and reputation is critical, you  get what you pay for, we stand behind what we do and say.

Onsite & Offsite Monitoring

No matter how mature the aquarium, or pond may be, aquatic environments are always susceptible to a crash. Sudden changes in water parameters are bad and can affect aquarists from novice to professional. A range of things from poor aquarium husbandry to equipment failure can cause swings in water parameters that harm your fish. We are constantly watching for these dangerous changes. Many of these cases can be undetectable to the owner.

We can also place monitoring devices set to track specific parameters based on your setup. This is a key to the survival of your aquatic life. These systems alert us very fast when something is going wrong.

Understanding what is happening inside your aquarium is vital to ensure your aquatic life stays healthy.

Frequently Asked Questions If you would like to discuss your questions with us directly, give us a call at 844-522-8265

Why should I consider Open Sea Aquarium?

Not only can we service or maintain your aquarium we can fully stock it with beautiful fish, coral, or invertebrates. No job too small, or too big. We work with tanks as small as 10 gallons to over 5000 gallons. We cater to all aquarium sizes, which include dive services when necessary.

You can never be more at ease than knowing our Marine Biology backed technicians are consistently delivering results. We have creative solutions that work for you so you don’t have to.

Why is it important to have regular maintenance?

Regular aquarium maintenance will ensure proper water chemistry, proper equipment operation, a trained eye to confirm fish and invertebrate health, overall tidiness and cleanliness, and proper guidance on how to feed your animals between visits. In addition to these points, frequent maintenance will ensure that your system is maintaining stability in adequate working parameters at all times.

What Is the difference in Weekly, Bi-Weekly and Monthly?

Weekly maintenance is highly recommended for saltwater reef systems, fabricated interior fish only systems, and commercial property systems frequently in the public eye. Bi-weekly service is recommended for freshwater systems, and some saltwater systems depending on the inhabitants of the aquarium. Monthly is only recommended for very basic freshwater systems, and may not be satisfactory to achieve desired results. Monthly and Bi-Weekly options will also require more tasks to be completed between visits.

Why do I need hire Open Sea Aquarium?

In addition to being extremely time-consuming, many tasks that are necessary for proper maintenance and husbandry can be very labor intensive. There are many steps during a maintenance operation that can be overlooked, or forgotten due to the detailed nature of maintaining an aquatic system.
