Bespoke Design & Business Installations

Do you have a stressful working environment?
Do you suffer with high staff sickness rates?
Do you have a busy waiting room?
Do you want customers to eat more in your restaurant?

If you answered “Yes” to any of the above then you should consider installing an aquarium into your business.

Research has shown that places of work with an aquarium have lower levels of stress and staff sickness. When placed within a restaurant environment customers eat more and when placed within a care home residents suffering with dementia have reduced effects of dementia.

Here at Stones Aquatics we have developed a couple of bespoke aquaria specific for business needs, along with off the shelf options and one-off creations to match your decor or needs.

How the process works:

Stage 1

We will have a discussion with you to work out where you would like your aquarium, the shape, size and your ideas around its inhabitants. You could decide to a Coldwater aquarium with fancy Goldfish and decor with castles or wreckage of planes, boats or helicopters; a Tropical Community tank with fancy guppies, gourami’s and other livebearers; a Malawi Cichlid community with their bright colours and simple decor; a Discus fish community who are the kings of tropical freshwater; a fully planted Nature Aquarium with lots of plants and small tropical fish; a Marine Community fish only; a Marine Community Reef or a Species only tank.

Stage 2

We will go away and come up with a proposal based on our discussions regarding size, finish and inhabitants. Once agreed we will request your aquarium from our suppliers or send the specs to the factory to make up your bespoke aquaria.

Stage 3

Once your aquarium is built and ready for installation we will visit site to install the aquarium, if additional electrics are needed we will arrange for our electrician to visit on a day earlier than we need to make sure all is in place. If building work needs to be carried out this will be completed prior to installation. On installation day we will install the decor structure, fill the aquarium up and begin the cycling process. This can take up to 2-4 weeks once we have added friendly bacteria to the filter system before it is ready for plants, corals or fish.

Stage 4

Once your aquarium has been cycled we will test the water parameters to see if it is suitable for the introduction of fish or plants. For planted aquaria the plants will be installed first and we will allow up to 12 weeks of maintenance for the plants to establish before introducing any fish. Fish will be added a few at a time to make sure that the filtration system is not overloaded.

Stage 5

Following the initial stocking a couple of weeks later we will test the water quality to see if the aquarium is ready for more fish, if it is we will add a few more and continue this process over the next couple of months until we have stocked to capacity.

Stage 6

As part of your business package you will have included a 12 month maintenance programme, in most cases this will include a minimum of a visit every 2 weeks, food and chemicals. By letting us maintain your aquarium it will reach its full potential, following the end of your 12 month maintenance programme you will roll onto a monthly maintenance contract. We can offer you additional fish/coral/plant add on packs to continue to grow your living art installation.
