Freshwater Hardscape

Freshwater hardscape aquariums encompass rocky style African lake décor, through to artificially planted displays, eliminating the need to keep any live plants within the aquariums.  This style of aquarium focuses solely on the fish within the display, allowing them to totally take centre stage.

Freshwater hardscape aquariums have less demands than the other styles, but are no less interesting or beautiful.  They also allow the keeping of those fish which would otherwise be incompatible with softer planted displays, often because the fish will nibble the plants!

Tropical Live Planted

Tropical planted aquariums are the freshwater equivalents of a reef aquarium.  Underwater planted gardens form the backbone of these displays, with shoals of colourful, peaceful fish swimming gracefully within the greenery.  Care for tropical planted aquariums is more demanding than for the freshwater hardscapes, with the plants needing careful tending along with the fish.

Our experts can guide you through the process, creating lush underwater forests which are both beautiful and relaxing.

Saltwater-Hardscape-aquarium

Saltwater Hardscape

Saltwater Hardscape aquariums focus solely on the fish, with none of the other invertebrate and creatures found on a reef.  They often contain some of the larger species of fish, sometimes predatory, swimming around open, rocky scenery.  Occasionally these are interspersed with artificial corals, depending on the desired final style.

Care for saltwater hardscape aquariums is not as great as that of the tropical marine reef aquariums, but these displays are fascinating as well as interesting, with some of the more extreme fishes able to be kept.

Tropical Marine Reef

Tropical marine reef tanks are often regarded as the most colourful as well as the most interesting of all aquariums.  The different relationships and behaviours between the fish, corals and other species, make for a wonderfully vibrant and fascinating display.

Tropical-Marine-Reef-aquarium

The care of tropical marine reef aquariums is the most demanding, due to the complex requirements of the fish and other species, along with the intricate relationships between the different water parameters.  Our experts will design, plan and install to ensure that these are all as simple as possible, and ensure the ongoing care of the aquariums is of the best quality.

Aquatechniques did a one off clean on my aquarium, but after the amazing job they did, I have had the back on a monthly basis ever since – the tanks have never looked so good.

RF, Twickenham

I have used Simon for many years and his team are always on time and leave the tank sparkling. No fuss involved, they just get on with the job and you could not ask for more.

ES, Sussex

Simon and his team do a great job looking after both of my aquariums at my home and in my office. Top notch, professional service.

JB, London

We moved to Glassbox Trading from another company about a year ago and wished we had done it years ago! Always professional and everyone we have spoken to is polite and knowledgeable. They have done an excellent job of turning our dreary tank into a sight to behold and we have fallen in love with it again, thank you!

SS, London

It is great to find a business that is large enough to handle problems should they spring up, but also small enough that you have the personal touch and feel that they truly care about the fish. Couldn’t be happier.

PT, Kingston

The team looks after my aquarium and they is always happy to chat with me, whether it is about new ideas or concerns I have with the fish. My mind is always put at ease and I feel as though they take care of my aquarium as if it were there own, you could not ask for more.

SM, Oxted

Luke maintains my aquarium on a weekly basis and he is always friendly, on time and very professional in his manner. His fish and coral knowledge is amazing and I look forward to his visits and I am sure the fish do too!

SF, Essex

I have been using Simon and his company for over 15 years now and I could not ask for better service. A great relationship has formed from starting with a small 75L freshwater aquarium and gradually succumbing to the hobby and moving up to a 700L saltwater reef. Thank you for all the support, knowledge and time Simon.
