ABOUT SALTWATER AQUARIUMS
The addition of a saltwater aquarium creates a naturally relaxing atmosphere that can be enjoyed throughout the seasons. You may notice that many hotels, restaurants, medical and dental offices, and fine homes, are enjoying the tranquil effects of an aquarium. It is a wonderful way to escape the stress of our daily lives.
If it is your desire to capture a “little piece of the ocean”, Neptune Aquarium Design, can handle all the details. From the initial design to finished product, when you work with us, you can be assured that everything will be done just as it should be. This allows you to relax and enjoy the experience, carefree. With over 20 years in business, and a proven method for aquarium success, we are here to guide you through the process.
When we start the design process, there are many points to consider:
· Do you need to match existing furniture or décor? Or will one of our standard or semi-custom designs work?
· Is your style modern, traditional or something else?
· How much room do you have to work with and will it be located near direct light
· What type of shape will work best for you? Choices include Cylinders, rectangles, squares and triangles to name a few.
· And, as you can imagine, there are all sorts of things available to create the perfect looking reef environment inside the aquarium too. We will work with your personal taste for color, to design something that will reflect your own style.
We will take the time to learn about your personal tastes and desires to design the perfect aquarium for you.

THE AQUARIUM ECOSYSTEM
Just like in nature, everything works together in an aquarium as well. We have designed a filtration system that performs every vital part necessary to replicate nature.
THE WET-DRY TRICKLE FILTER
The heart of the system, it is a biological filter that breaks down harmful waste using beneficial bacteria and enzymes. Each one is designed to match the size of the aquarium and is practically fool proof.
THE ULTRA VIOLET STERILIZER AND HEATER MODULE
This is the second and third stage of the process. The UV sterilizer is a vital piece of equipment that does two important jobs:
1) It kills germs and keeps fish free of disease.
2) It helps clarify the water, giving it that kind of clarity that is magnifying.
The heater module warms the water to the tropical temperature of 82 degrees, making the fish feel right at home.
ROCKS, GRAVEL, & CORAL
Not only are all of these things important to decorating your aquarium, but they are also an important part of the eco system as well, helping the filter system maintain good water quality and proper PH levels. And, they also provide a home for our fish friends.
