We provide a bespoke aquarium maintenance and fish tank cleaning service, from a one-off visit to regular weekly, fortnightly or monthly visits dependant on the needs of your fish, plants, corals and aquarium equipment. We can visit your home, place of work, business or care home.

Stones Aquatics aim to help you realise your creative vision, creating that piece of living art that everyone will enjoy and maintaining it to stay that way. We aim to be on call for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Our technicians are experienced, knowledgeable and capable of working on aquatic systems from as simple as internal filters to more complex sump based marine systems.

Emergency & One-Off Visits

Initial cleans will be charged at an hourly rate of £65 per hour, 2 of our maintenance staff will come during this time as initial visits can take more cleaning than regular maintenance visits.

Emergency visits are charged at £65 per hour between the hours of 9am-5pm. Visits outside these hours are charged at time and a half. Visits on Bank Holidays and National Holidays will be charged at double time regardless of the time of day.

Although we endeavour to respond to calls as soon as possible it is not always possible to come straight away, we will attend as soon as we have the staff to do so. Advice will be given over the phone or a video call to attain what to do in the interim.
