Aquatic Start: Our Aquarium Service is Better.

We maintain all sorts of aquariums, ranging from the smaller 55 gallon fish tanks all the way up to handling difficult or unique saltwater aquarium setups that often come with custom aquariums and installations. We understand that your exotic fish tanks are beautiful conversation pieces for your home or office, and when your friends and guests view them, it is important to keep them looking their best. All of our staff is thoroughly trained in both saltwater and freshwater aquarium maintenance. We require all of our technicians to have years of experience owning and taking care of fish tanks, and then we put them through our rigorous training program so that they learn how to take care of your aquarium the correct way.

As you grow your aquarium over time, when you need additional aquarium supplies or want to improve your fish tank with better and/or newer equipment, Aquatic Start can help you get the right equipment for your fish tank at one of the best prices around and help you get it installed without any hassles. Choosing the right fish or coral is an important step of growing your aquarium. Our team is well versed in which fish work best and what combinations to avoid. We know how to choose good coral for your tank too.
