Aquarium Maintenance

Normal Aquatics can create a Maintenance Program that fits anyone’s Aquarium Service requirements and budget. We can service and maintain your aquarium twice weekly, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. Because of the sensitivity of a reef environment and how crucial proper Aquarium Maintenance is, we recommend a recurring Maintenance Program. We will visit your aquarium with a free Aquarium Consultation before we formally write up a quote. Below is a list of Aquarium Maintenance Tasks we perform (but not limited to):

  • 10% water change using top-of-the line Reef salt and RO/DI filtered water
  • Fill sump with RO/DI water at desired level
