Saltwater Aquariums

New to Pond Doctors!  We can now assist you with your saltwater aquarium. We offer monthly maintenance, building of your aquarium, consultation and construction of your biotope, and fish compatibility. Water chemistry is extremely important so knowing and understanding how the water cycles is the basis for a healthy tank. Building a saltwater aquarium can be challenging if you don’t know how to do it. Let us help you build it correctly the first time around. Keeping fish and corals happy, healthy and alive is our goal. We will assist you in finding the perfect combination- tank size, lighting, and filtration system- to house the creatures of your dreams in your home aquarium.
