Unparalleled Aquarium Maintenance Service and Expertise

As the leading saltwater aquarium maintenance service provider in North Dallas and the surrounding areas, our aquarium saltwater service technicians are highly trained and have years of experience.  This enables our highly trained staff to diagnosis the root cause of issues and make the appropriate corrections.  So many times, our aquarium service clients started off with a less expensive service provider. We encounter issues like nuisance algae or low a success rate with new fish being introduced into the aquarium.  Take for example, it’s not just about adding creatures that eat nuisance algae.  Yes, these creatures or clean up crews can have a place in most saltwater aquarium communities.  Realistically these cleanup crews aren’t the answer.  What our saltwater aquarium service technicians are able to do is to diagnosis the root cause of an issue and then begin making appropriate corrections, bringing the aquarium back in balance.  Usually it isn’t just one variable that needs corrected, it’s a combination of variables that require slight adjustments and getting everything dialed in.  Our knowledge of the complexity of a saltwater aquarium is just one of the reasons we are able to offer the unparalleled saltwater aquarium service.

Regularly Scheduled Aquarium Maintenance Service

Consistency is critical to successfully maintaining a saltwater aquarium.  Typically, we recommend having your saltwater aquarium serviced every two weeks or once a week.  A typical aquarium service visit starts a visual inspection of the aquarium, life support systems, and your aquariums’ inhabitants followed with testing the water parameters so we have a better understanding of the water chemistry.  We will perform a 10% to 40% water change at each aquarium service visit.  Water changes are critical to the success of aquarium maintenance services. In addition, we will replace or change out filter media designed to be replaced at each service.  We will also scrape algae form the front glass, bring food and other aquarium supplies.

Online Aquarium Sales

At Dallas Aquarium Experts we are experiencing an increase in requests for information about shipping custom glass aquariums, furniture grade aquarium stands and aquarium canopies to areas outside of our local service area. The sales process remains the same. The biggest difference is that the aquarium, stand and canopy is delivered via freight through a third-party carrier.

Custom Aquarium Purchase Process

Initially the process is the same.  We have conversations with prospective clients and owner Morgan O’Neal.  During these initial conversations we determine our clients wants, needs, and budget.  We then make our recommendations that will ensure our client’s aquariums are set up for long term success.  Once we have determined everything from aquarium size to the stand style stain color, we then are able to request a crate and freight estimates from the manufacturers and 3rd party shipping/carriers.

Custom Aquarium Crate with Pricing Example

When a brand-new custom aquarium set up leaves our manufacture and is being prepared for transit it is placed in a custom-built crate prior to going on to a box truck and sent out for delivery.  Here is an example of a client’s crating and freight costs. This aquarium set up is a 90-gallon tank a with stand and canopy.  This 90-gallon aquarium which is 48.5 inches in length.  The aquarium stand is a 36-inch tall Elegance Stand with matching Elegance Canopy 12 inches in height. The cost of a custom crate in this example is $170.00.  The dimensions are important because the larger the items being shipped the more materials needed to build the shipping crate.

What’s the Cost to have an Aquarium shipped to me?

In this example, the cost of crating and the freight of a 90-gallon show tank, with an Elegance Stand, and Canopy added an additional $420 to the cost.  Purchasing an aquarium online with these additional fees will not make sense for everyone. However, if you live in an area without a direct local access to custom aquariums, furniture grade aquarium stands and canopies and within the budget.

How long until my new Custom Aquarium Arrives?

At the time this article was written in September 2020 the current production time is 4 to 5 weeks.  Once aquarium craftsman has completed your project and everything has passed our quality control our inspections, it is ready to be shipped. Transit time varies by local, in this example it added an additional 5 business days.

What should I expect when my new custom aquarium arrives for delivery?

Your crated aquarium set up arrives on a box truck.  The driver will have a lift gate and the crate will be unloaded.  Once the aquarium set up is off the truck, the driver is not responsible to help move the aquarium.  You need to be there to accept the delivery and sign off on the Bill of Landing.  This is a critical part of the process and can be easily overlooked.  The carrier is responsible for delivering the shipment to you without damage or loss. It is your responsibility to open the crate and check the aquarium inside and outside.  If any damages are found, take clear photos of any damages to the aquarium and the crate.  You must make note of all issues on the Bill of Landing before signing.  If the aquarium glass is cracked or if the cabinetry has damages that cannot be fixed with touch up paint, you must refuse delivery and call Dallas Aquarium Expert immediately.
