Saltwater Fish Tank w/ Basement Sump Filter Upgrade – Walpole, MA

Posted by on Apr 17, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

This week we had the opportunity to do some much-needed work on an old, messy and unreliable basement sump filter system for a saltwater fish tank. The entire filter system along with the RODI are all in a dedicated room in the basement on the other side of the house. As you can see in the “before” pictures, this sump filter had some major problems. First, the sump was made of glass. Although glass aquariums can be used as sump filters, they are much more fragile and harder to work with...

It had been a long time since I’d been to the NE Aquarium in Boston. Growing up we’d visit Mystic Aquarium in CT and Boston Aquarium at least a few times a year. In fact, that’s what got me hooked in this crazy world of fish. This year, St Patrick’s Day (17 March) was Emmy’s first birthday! We decided to bring her to the aquarium for the first time – and she LOVED it. Above, a giant reef tank representative of the Pacific coral reef community. Some familiar “faces” – Sea...

The aquarium at Latitude 43 has been running for many years. About 2 years ago Imagine an Ocean began servicing...
