Let us bring your aquarium's health to its climax. Our maintenance services are performed by a biologist that is also a reef aquarium enthusiast, so rest assured your animals are in good hands. We offer one time cleanings, routine maintenance accounts, and customized service to fit your exact needs. Sign a maintenance contract with us to enjoy flat-rate servicing, free apex programming, and the best service value around. We recommend service a minimum of every two weeks.
We'll help you plan a new setup that best fits your lifestyle, then install it for you on a day of your choosing. Already started on a new project, but wound up stuck on the details? We can help. We know bean-animal and herbie style overflows, battery back-ups for power heads, flow recommendations, LED and T-5 lighting options, pump recommendations and much more. Want a custom cypress skinned stand? We can get that for you too.
So you were cruising craigslist and saw a tank, like the one above, for a good deal and just couldn't pass it up? We'll clean it up, inspect it, and install it to best suit your lifestyle. Need it drilled and external overflows added? We'll take care of it for you. Contact us to schedule a consultation and price quote.
Given enough time, any equipment on a reef tank will fail and can cause catastrophic damage to your tank inhabitants. Apex controllers are the first responders to a tank emergency and can turn off pumps, dosers, lights, and heaters, as well as send you a text message and e-mail if something goes wrong. Leak detection, overdosing protection, auto top off failure monitoring, and live stock die off alerts are just some of the benefits of having an apex.
Already have an Apex? We can program it to suit your lifestyle and preferences. Need a crash course on how to use your apex? Let us give you a run-down on your system and show you how to easily monitor and program your apex.
Want some advice on how to make your setup better, or do you need particular water quality issues addressed? We'll come to you and inspect your system to see which areas could use improvement, then make recommendations based on your specific setup. Need to know how much light your LED or T5 fixture is pumping out? We can help with that too. We'll come out and measure the amount of PAR your light fixture puts out, make recommendations on coral placement, and help you modify your lighting schedule to fit the needs of your tank.
Heading out for a week or two on vacation? We offer vacation monitoring options so you can enjoy digging your toes into the sand or hitting the fresh powder on the mountains instead of worrying about the tank. We'll stop in everyday to check on the tank, feed the fish and coral, and even setup our mobile wifi cameras so you can view your tank from your smart device whenever you want.
