At the end of the last school year, Imagine an Ocean was contacted by Melrose High School to remove and store their tank while work was being done in the classrooms.   After removing the water, live rock, and sand, Yorgos and Sean lifted the tank off of its stand and brought it back to our shop to be cleaned and stored.     It was also time for a new stand.

Imagine an Ocean was recently hired to organize and update a large 180+ gallon reef system. There is a gorgeous tank upstairs with pumps, filtration, and RODI water being kept in the basement.     When we arrived,there was an unsafe collection of wires and power strips hanging precariously over and around large volumes of water. Even if a short circuit or electric fire never occurs, simple or emergency maintenance and tank shut-off becomes much more difficult with so many cords,...

Essex, MA Pond;This Old House Update

Back to Essex, MA to check up on the TOH pond. More plants have been added and the vegetation is growing in well. The waterfall runs on a 12 hour on/off cycle. It not only provides a great visual effect and soothing sound, but oxygenates and aids in clearing the water as well. Lilies and floating plants in the foreground, tall reeds and bog plants as a backdrop. Plenty of direct sunlight for the majority of the day in this clearing. But, these plants don’t need to worry about drying...
