Aquarium Installation

Aquarium Installation is best left in the hands of the experts as there are lots of intricate details that need to be accounted for during the project. Fintastic will make sure everything is covered  and that includes the following:

Custom Design

Our aquarium design services precede the actual installation phase. Our team will collaborate with contractors on larger, more involved projects and provide expert consultation. We take the time to educate our customers as we help them through the selection part of the process. Our technicians can provide a variety of options when it comes to the installation of your aquarium. Customers can then choose the best option for them and their home.

Aquarium Setup

The setup phase can be very involved and there is typically a certain amount of carpentry involved. Our technicians work with all types of home and business setups. That means installing aquariums in new and pre-existing homes. During this process, there are structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing/drainage considerations and we know exactly what needs to be done. The setup process is key to aquarium installation and we do not neglect a single phase of that process.

Technical System Support

For any aquarium to function efficiently, the water needs to be balanced just right. This requires the right infrastructure to be in place. At Fintastic, we utilize top-of-the-line technical plumbing, which serves the function of preserving space and also preventing leakage. Our support systems can also be installed inside your walls, in remote filtration rooms and remain out of sight.

Life Support Systems

One of the main components of any aquarium is the life support system, which is entrusted with keeping the water free from impurities. The life support system actually replenishes the water before returning it to the display tank. Homeowners and business owners do not typically see the intricacies of the life support system, although its functionality is vital. At Fintastic, we install high-grade life support systems to ensure your water is biologically stable and pristine.

Individual Solutions

It is important to note that all aquarium installations are different and what works in one situation may not work in another. That is why we take the time to evaluate each installation project and determine the most optimal solutions. Customers can choose from an array of installation options as our goal is 100 percent customer satisfaction of an impeccably designed aquatic ecosystem. Our installation solutions also include the following options.

  • Standard and customized wood cabinetry in a multitude of woods, trim packages and stains/paints
