How The Aquarium Design Consultation Works
When you fill out our online contact form or call us for an initial design consultation, here’s what you can expect:
Onsite, In-Person Consultation
It’s important to have an onsite consultation so that we can see the space you’re working with. The placement of the aquarium is key as you need to consider lighting and visibility, and it’s also important to know whether you want the tank to be a centerpiece or whether your goal is to fill up an empty corner. If you’re not sure about placement, we can make recommendations and help you find the best spot for the size and type of aquarium you want.
Also during our consultation, we will discuss the various aspects of your tank like what size you want, what kind of fish you want, whether you want freshwater or saltwater, lighting, plants and accessories, and whether you will need custom cabinetry installed.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to have all the answers! We provide you with a checklist and printed materials to review at your convenience and are always available to answer your questions over the phone.
Final Plan For Review
Once you’ve made the important decisions, our team will finalize the plan for your review. It will include a rendering of your new aquarium, a fish plan, plants and accessories, a complete list of equipment that will be needed, and an order for any custom cabinetry installation if applicable. Please see some of our fish plan examples below:
Already Have You Own Equipment?
Many of our clients are bringing a former aquarium back or life, or they have purchased a tank and equipment online and are looking to us for guidance. In this case, your design consultation might just include placement, a fish plan, and ensuring that you have all the necessary equipment to run and maintain your tank. If you’re missing anything, we can make recommendations and give you pricing for certain pieces of equipment that you will need.
Aquarium Installation & Maintenance
The next step after any design consultation is aquarium installation. We offer all-inclusive installation services, or we can just help with the heavy lifting – whatever you need!
