It’s important to keep custom fish tanks in Pittsburgh, PA looking crystal clear and beautiful with aquarium and pond maintenance from Aquatic Systems Consultants. In addition to maintenance, I’m also pleased to also offer aquarium and pond installation on a broad scope. As a Christian, I feel very strongly about treating customers the right way and always providing honest work.
Maintaining and troubleshooting aquariums and ponds
I offer daily or weekly maintenance with cleaning, feeding and water testing of freshwater ponds starting at 1,000 gallons, as well as large marine saltwater aquariums starting at 200 gallons. Saltwater aquariums are my specialty!
I deal with issues as they arise—everything from pump or pipe failure to tank cracks and anything else that might plague custom aquariums in Pittsburgh, PA. I also offer assistance in the relocation of aquariums from room to room or between homes or building structures. This entails capturing all resident animals in the tank or pond and holding them until the tank is drained, moving to the new location, and cleaning the gravel.
Innovative ideas for aquariums and ponds
Some of my designs for custom fish tanks in Pittsburgh, PA include various types of glass aquariums with special features, such as connected aquariums with tubes allowing the fish to swim between tanks, putting tanks directly into walls and other structures, and designing tanks together to look like acrylic fish.
Small- to medium-sized ponds not only increase your home’s value but also add a beautifully unique aesthetic to your property, creating a relaxing place for meditating and escaping the craziness of life. I can also incorporate waterfalls that wrap around the house, spray fountains, and koi or multi-colored fish visible at the surface for maximum effect.
Installation of aquariums and ponds
Depending on the size of the job, installations are performed by me and a crew of one to three people. We make sure there is room below the tank for a sump pump, then build the tank, install the decorations and fill the tank. This includes the pump, lighting and other necessary features.
Any ecosystem with animals also has plants—they help to balance each other out. When a saltwater system is designed right with an algal scrubber system, you don’t even have to change the water!
With ponds, we excavate the area to dig the hole in the ground before putting a pond liner down with rocks around the top to camouflage the liner. Water and fish are then added along with water features.
