We specialize in all aquarium habitats but Doc Aquarium is unique because we operate our own 750 square foot greenhouse coral farm. Building upon this capability, we have a strong emphasis on and extensive experience with living reefs.

Our live coral is grown under natural sunlight to minimize our carbon footprint. All corals are carefully monitored upon introduction and guaranteed to adapt perfectly to the artificial lighting in your aquarium.

Service packages:

Premium service is performed 1-2 days weekly. Most reef aquariums may need single weekly visits if the client cannot assist with some of the tasks.

Advanced service is performed every 2 weeks. If the client can clean the skimmer, top off the filter if needed and use the algae magnet to clean the glass in between our visits then this may be the package for you.

Basic service is performed every 3-4 weeks or monthly. Most standard freshwater systems can utilize this plan to run a successful aquarium.

Fish only service is performed every 1-2 weeks. With this plan, skimmers and filter socks need to be cleaned weekly or at least every other week to keep the water chemistry nutrient levels in check.

Pond service is performed every 1-4 weeks. This includes routine skimmer basket cleaning, pump and filter service, netting leaves and brushing the floors, walls and waterfalls, plus water testing. Regular vacuuming can also be a part of the service if the proper connections are available on site, much like a pool set up.
