Conflicting opinions in the aquarium industry are rife! As a novice, this confusion is very troublesome. It makes the hobby more like work instead of enjoyment. You spend a lot of time running around gathering information and equipment just to find out it is worthless.
We adopt an extremely simple approach to aquarium keeping and maintenance that has worked very well over the years. We will strive to develop the aquatic industry through training and development of our staff AND our clients to provide quality service to aquariums.
We have carried out a lot of comprehensive consulting work in the aquatic industry over the years. We have been involved with Fresh Live Seafood, Freshwater Fish for restaurants and food outlets right through to Live Food (Artemia production), Coral Propagation and various other subjects relating to the aquaculture industry. We also provide a consulting service to the hobbyist and fish keeper for assessments and upgrades to existing Life Support Systems, livestock and general aquarium information.
We have designed, planned and installed aquariums as small as 50cm (60litre) aquariums right up to Marine Seawater aquariums as large as a 65 000 litres. Every aquarium system from 60 litres to 65 000 litres is a completely new experience if designed each time. I believe that each aquarium SHOULD be planned correctly to achieve success. There are no shortcuts to doing things the correctly. Compromise so often ends in failure.
We invite you as the potential client to contact us and discuss or arrange a consult / meeting with us regarding any aquatic matters!
