Tasks Commonly Performed during a Freshwater Fish Tank Cleaning and Maintenance Appointment

Common Types of Freshwater Fish Tanks That We Care For

Freshwater Community Fish Tank Maintenance Service

Tropical community aquariums are a popular choice for freshwater aquarium enthusiasts, as they offer a diverse and beautiful array of fish species. Proper maintenance and care are crucial for the health and well-being of the aquatic life. Our expert aquarists can set you up with an aquarium system that will be a success,  select compatible fish species, and do the work to keep the tank clean and maintain good water quality for your tropical community aquarium.

When it comes to water chemistry, tropical community aquariums require a neutral to slightly acidic pH level, and the water temperature should be kept between 76 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally, the hardness of the water must also be monitored and adjusted as needed, as different fish species may have different requirements.

Another important factor in maintaining a healthy tropical community aquarium is providing adequate filtration and regular water changes. A well-designed filtration system can help remove excess food and waste from the aquarium, while regular water changes can help remove accumulated toxins and maintain good water quality.

Our experienced technicians will perform a variety of tasks during a freshwater fish tank cleaning and maintenance appointment, including water quality testing, water change, algae removal, equipment inspection, and fish health checkups. We understand that maintaining a freshwater aquarium on your own can be complicated and time-consuming, but with our professional services, we can help make it easier and hassle-free.

Koi and Goldfish Aquarium Cleaning Services

Koi and goldfish are popular freshwater fish that are often kept in larger aquariums. These fish are known for their beautiful colors and long lifespans, but they can also be challenging to maintain. Koi and goldfish produce a lot of waste, which can quickly lead to poor water quality, excessive algae growth and other problems if not managed properly.

At Oregon Aquarium Service, our team of experienced aquarists can design and maintain a well-designed filtration system that will help keep your koi or goldfish aquarium clean and healthy. We can also provide expert advice on choosing the right type of filter for your aquarium, and help you monitor and maintain the water chemistry to ensure good water quality.

In addition to filtration, Koi and goldfish aquariums also require ample space to swim and move around and high disolved oxygen content. Our team can help you choose the right size aquarium for your fish and set it up properly, including circulation substrate and decor selection. We will also perform regular aquarium cleaning and maintenance tasks, including partial water changes and cleaning the filter, to keep your aquarium in top condition.

With our expertise and dedication to providing top-quality aquarium services, we can help you maintain a beautiful and healthy Koi or goldfish aquarium that you can enjoy for years to come.

African Cichlid Aquarium Care Service

African Cichlid Aquariums are a popular choice for aquarium enthusiasts due to their high activity level, colorful and unique appearance, as well as their interesting and sometimes aggressive behavior. These fish are native to the rift lakes of Africa and can be found in a wide variety of colors and patterns, making them a visually stunning addition to any aquarium.

However, keeping African cichlids can be a challenging task for novice aquarium hobbyists. They require specific water chemistry parameters, with a pH between 7.8 and 8.6 and a water hardness of at least 10°dH, which is necessary for the health, behavior and coloration of these fish. In addition, the aquarium should be decorated with rocks, caves, and other hiding spots, to mimic their natural environment and provide them with a sense of security.

Another significant challenge in maintaining an African cichlid aquarium is selecting compatible fish species. African cichlids are often aggressive towards each other and towards other species, and therefore, it is important to carefully select fish that are compatible in terms of size, aggression level, and territorial behavior. The mix of male and female fish can also have an impact on aggression and possibly promote breeding.

Oregon Aquarium Service's team of experienced aquarists and aquarium technicians can help you set up and maintain your African cichlid aquarium. We can are experts in selecting compatible fish species, designing aquarium layouts for particular species, and maintaining the proper water chemistry for your fish to thrive. Trust us for all your African cichlid aquarium needs, and enjoy the beauty and uniqueness of these colorful and fascinating fish in your home or office.
