Aquatic Environment Design
Your custom aquatic system design is comprehensive and detailed. There are many factors that we consider in the development of home or office aquatic systems. Whether the aquarium will be mounted in a wall or a free-standing unit, location, size, shape and volume are all important factors. Accessibility and aesthetics are also key aspects in the planning stages. Hardware components such as filtration, circulation, plumbing and lighting equipment both support livestock and create the desired look and feel of your aquarium. Livestock selection involves water quality, compatibility, system capacity and numerous complex biological and chemical interactions that require careful planning and monitoring. All of these components work in harmony to create balanced, natural aquatic systems that become fascinating focal points in your home or place of business.

Aquarium Installation
Expert installation of new systems and/or additional equipment is always provided. An initial inspection of the installation site is performed beforehand to ensure that proper structural, electrical and plumbing support is available. The set-up procedure for many systems is a multi-stage process that may require more than one visit to the job site. Livestock (fish etc.) cannot be added until water quality has been stabilized. Every system installation is unique and will be discussed in advance with a set timeline for completion. Careful planning will ensure a timely installation and a healthy environment long term.

Routine maintenance and monitoring are essential for all contained aquatic systems. Whether service is required weekly or just once per month, Imagine an Ocean has maintenance plans to fit any system. Our goal is to manage every element of your aquarium so that it can be enjoyed to the fullest. Maintenance scheduling can be managed on an “as needed” basis or integrated into a contract to cover up to one full year. The following are included with our services:

We will perform all of our standard aquatic system maintenance, as well as feeding and any other necessary requirements.
