Aquarium Rack Systems for Pet Retail
Using our knowledge from the world of aquaculture we have developed systems for standard aquatic retail, we have 2, 3 or 4 tier systems with any combination of tank sizes, water depths etc. You can have the livery branded to your company colours or design your own system, fully customisable, professional, choices of filtration systems with expert guidance.
Price Beating Policy - we will try and beat a like for like system price from any of our competitiors, so confident we will try to beat on price, service and overall system efficiency.
Low maintenance – very easy to clean and maintain filtration, we have a simple valve system so members of staff can be trained very quickly to perform routine maintenance which where possible the waste water can be sent direct to a drain and be automatically topped up.
Low running costs – lower wattage lighting and pumps
Lower algae technology and techniques – understanding that the less algae systems have the more time staff can spend being productive in other areas such as sales.
Algae is a staple food in aquaculture and one of the most important aspects to consider in all aquatic systems. With a scientific understanding of the different valences of nutrients algae assimilates we can limit the key catalysts which cause algal growth in aquatic systems. If you follow our expert advice, use our food specifically designed for aquatic retail (low NPK ratio) then you will see a huge drop in algae growth compared to other aquatic systems on the market.
Efficient Filtration – Our systems use a mix of dynamic media coupled with a static bed, the surface area to volume ratios have all been worked out – see article for further information ‘understanding efficient filtration’.
Lower chance of disease – most fish diseases are harboured in the filtration, when the immune systems drop in the fish from changes in water parameters such as pH, nitrogenous wastes or transport, the diseases see an opportunity and attack, the background levels of these diseases can be kept lower with an understanding of the microbial diversity in a filtration system. A common mistake in aquatic retail is to have too much anaerobic (heterotrophic) bacterial action which is efficient but harbours disease, the flipside is too much autotrophic bacteria although lower in disease concentration can cause problems with Nitrite NO2- spikes an pH crashes, we have a clear understanding of the delicate balance between the two – again see ‘understanding efficient filtration’ article.
Giving back to nature stamp – be proud to tell your customers a percentage of the installation has gone into a non-profit fund which is used to provide equipment, skills and training in developing countries in order for them to continue to breed ornamental fish to sustain their livelihoods. This comes out of our margins so our systems do not cost more because of this, you can sign up long term to a small percentage of your fish sales - even if it is just 1%, the public are getting more and more conscience of the environment so it is great for the company image to sign up to this scheme so they can show the customers that for every fish sold something is going back to keeping the trade more sustainable for the future. Once again this is completely non-profit and something we do because we are passionate about the future of sustainable fish production and the future of the ornamental fish trade.
