Aquarium Maintenance

Southwest Aquaculture provides expert aquarium maintenance and service of saltwater & freshwater systems and is A+ BBB rated!

At the completion of the install of your stunning aquarium, Southwest Aquaculture will be at your service to help maintain your investment. While most companies will charge you to ‘clean your aquarium’, we do not consider ourselves janitors. We are your partner in success! Maintenance can take on many forms depending on the types of aquarium you own, but regardless one thing holds true, and that is, we do what’s necessary.

It’s nice to have clear glass through which to view your fish, or clean filters to catch poo, but the reality is, it goes beyond that, and we educate our clients to help them understand what that means to them and the aquarium. It’s truly an area where our attention to detail shines, and consequently our existing clients will echo this fact.

Take comfort in the fact that we do not charge a premium for going the extra mile, remember we’re partners. Our number one goal is your success and continued pride in ownership of a beautiful and healthy aquarium.

Maintenance schedules include:

  • Weekly
  • Bi-weekly
  • Monthly.

We will meet with you to evaluate your aquarium, and to understand your needs, before providing a quote for our service.


When it comes to cost, it could be as little as $65, it all depends, but the fact is, we provide the same level of care to all our clients.

Tank Sitting:

We also perform tank sitting services, benefits include:

  • Peace of mind while you are away on business or pleasure. Take comfort knowing your finned friends are in good care.
  • Avoid losses from over-feeding. One of the biggest reasons aquarium owners return from vacation to dead animals as feeding tasks are left up to non-professionals.
  • Remote monitoring if your system is equipped with a controller. We will keep a closer eye on water parameters remotely, and respond to any alarms triggered.

If you don’t have one of these systems we highly recommend you let us install one for you. It’s like insurance for your tank and so much more.
