Professional, Knowledgeable and Experienced Portland Aquarium Maintenance

Protein SkimmerThere are lots of people in the PDX area who want stunning aquarium displays in their homes and businesses but don’t have the time, experience or technical expertise to keep their displays and animals healthy and looking their best. That’s one of the reasons why we started our Portland aquarium maintenance business. We saw an opportunity to do what we love while supporting a need in the area for knowledgeable, professional and experienced aquarium maintenance for our clients. While this is not a complete list of the maintenance services we provide, here are some of the services that our clients require the most:

  • Filter cleaning and maintenance – All types of mechanical, chemical and biological filtration need proactive and routine maintenance to keep your display, life support system and animals looking their best. Our clients know they can rely on us to maintain their filtration properly and prevent potential problems before they occur.
  • Algae scrubbing – Whether their systems are freshwater or saltwater, tropical or temperate, eventually everyone gets algae growing on the acrylic, glass, substrate or rocks. There are many types of algae that can grow in a display and almost all of them are unsightly and unhealthy for your animals. Some systems require more proactive algae scrubbing than others but our assiduous work ethic and eye for detail can keep your display vibrant and clear of algal growth at all times.
  • Water changes – Regular water changes are essential for maintaining aquatic animal health and keeping closed, recirculating systems looking their best at all times. When we perform regular water changes for our clients, we only use freshly filtered water that has passed though reverse osmosis filters, which remove harmful pollutants that can accumulate in aquariums and adversely affect the health of your system and animals. We also use professional-grade salt mixes with our R/O water. Good salt mixes are not inexpensive but, as always, the results speak for themselves.
  • Life support component maintenance and optimization – Every type of life support component on any type of system requires ongoing maintenance to work at peak efficiency, promote its longevity and provide the best return on investment. Our professional aquarium maintenance technicians know how to proactively maintain and optimize all types of life support components so that they keep on providing excellent filtration and performance week after week and year after year.

The aquarium maintenance required by each life support system is as varied as the people who own them and the mix of fishes and invertebrates living in them. One thing that does not vary is our professionalism, attention to detail and dedication to our clients. For more information about these and the other types of professional aquarium maintenance services we provide for clients in the Portland area, call us today at (503) 784-4403.
