Custom aquarium design

Nature takes its time. Deliveries are typically 1-2 months from the time of payment. We charge a rate of $125 per hour plus the cost of supplies and products required to construct the tank. 

Whether you have an idea that you'd like to bring to life or you simply know that you'd like an aquarium but are unsure of your vision- we can help!

We are passionate about freshwater aquariums and aquascaping and are just as excited as you are to create the perfect habitat for your home.  

The Consultation 

In this phase we discuss the type of aquarium you are looking for. If you are unfamiliar with the concept of aquascaping- this is a time for us to guide you through what to expect, what the overall process is, and what the final product will be. 

Design

The design phase is where your creativity gets to be at the forefront. Whether you would like to recreate something you have seen before, or would like something done up that is unique to your personality- we can begin to map out just what your dream aquarium will look like. If you are feeling overwhelmed with ideas or don't know how to begin we can offer suggestions based on your personal interests that cater to your desired aesthetic. 

Setup

Layout and planting is done during the setup stage.  Water and organic components are then added to allow for the nitrogen cycle to begin- this creates a colony of good bacteria in the ecosystem.  Many fish keepers experience algae or fish loss due to a lack of good bacterial colonies that are typically setup during the nitrogen cycle. The bacterial colonization process takes about 30-45 days and we dedicate this time to creating the perfect environment for the aquarium. The aquarium will only be deemed deliverable when water conditions test for optimal levels of ammonia, nitrates, nitrites, and pH.

Delivery and installation

We provide to door delivery and installation of all of our aquariums. Proper lighting, CO2, and filtration are initiated upon installation. Fish and invertebrates will also be introduced and acclimatized to their new home during this time.

Education

During and after the installation process, we will demonstrate the proper steps necessary in order to maintain your new aquarium equipment.  We will also provide teaching on how to keep your your plants and fish thriving.  A hands on demonstration and walk-through of the periodic maintenance needed will also be done for those who wish to get their hands dirty.

Our mission and goals

We have a set of goals we'd like to achieve, and we'd like for our customers and supporters to be a part of it. Often, affordability in product means outsourcing manufacturing to countries with poor human labour practices and irresponsible environmental output. We are challenging ourselves to do better by keeping all manufacturing environmentally friendly, sustainable, and 100% Canadian 🇨🇦. We truly believe that happy people and less environmental impact means we can all enjoy this hobby longer.
