Aquarium Installation & Maintenance Services in Washington, D.C.

Installations

Having a professional service company deliver, set up, and install your aquarium will not only reduce the work on your part but will help ensure it is done right the first time.

Do you plan to change the water in your aquarium without lugging buckets to and fro?

What about a system for topping off evaporation?

Are you stressing over different kinds of lighting systems?

Unable to decide on the right skimmer for your aquarium?

If you’ve answered “yes” to at least one of these questions, then Reef eScape can help you.

We have experience with literally hundreds of aquaria ranging from 5 gallons to over 1,000 gallons. The initial step for us would be to ask a bunch of questions, get a feel of the location, and understand what type of animals you plan on keeping. We will then create a customized plan to get you what you want while maintaining the budget and space limitations.

If you have some of the equipment for your aquarium or if you’re starting to feel like you are in over your head, just talk to us.
