Your aquarium is a priceless treasure. But all you need to do is feed the fish! Therefore Living Waters Aquarium Maintenance starts with the same 5-step routine during every service call. We will-
vacuum gravel (if you have live plants or corals, we clean around them)
refill the aquarium with new water
scrape & scrub algae
clean filters and equipment
redecorate and polish glass
Living Waters service is consistent and reliable
Our staff understands that every aquarium has slightly different biology. We attend to the specific care and testing requirements of your aquarium. We use API and Salifert brand test kits and instruments for recording pH and temperature.
Do you have a premium-quality setup? Here’s another thing to consider: We prefer to work with your personal tastes because it increases our underwater creativity.
Living Waters has routines for all budgets! Routine Water deliveries start at $35.00 (monthly rate for saltwater aquariums up to 100 gallons)

We love seeing blissful fish in clean aquariums
They are stress-free.
Therefore, its no surprise that our longest clients are retirement facilities and dental offices. We equip our staff with kits containing tests from brands like API and Salifert. We take recordings of various salts, pH and temperature. Many aquarium pumps and equipment require extensive knowledge of manuals and procedures. In general, your aquarium will need just a little more care than a standard home aquarium. Because image is important, you choose the cleaning schedule that works for you:

INTERACTIVE LIVE DISPLAYS
Aquariums naturally draw people with aquatic life and energy. Moreso than screens or signs, aquarium displays receive heavy traffic.
Living Waters staff have been trained with MaRS, seafood corporate guidelines, and government procedures with various agencies. Many live displays will require extensive knowledge of aquarium manuals and procedures. Specifically, these display aquariums demand greater knowledge about plumbing and electricity than a standard fish tank.
Whether your live display needs weekly maintenance or quarterly maintenance, we have the perfect option for you. Please call us for a routine service estimate.
