Below are some of the most common questions we get:
- What does ACUAPROF do?
We design, build, install and maintain aquarium systems.
- Is there any job too big or too small for Acuaprof?
We specialize in aquariums larger than 200 gallons. If you are looking for aquariums below that size there are plenty of retailers who can offer competitive service. However, when it comes to 1000 gallons or larger, we are the right company for you. We have engineers and architects backing up our work.
- Acrylic or Glass?
Your choice! Some people have their preferences, but both materials are available and have pros and cons. We work with both, but there are times, due to the nature of the project, acrylic will be the material of choice, especially for very large panels or cylindrical shapes. Glass is now the choice of StarfireTM, a material so pure, that it offers almost zero deformations or colour change over time. We offer full support to our customers in case of scratches or defects to the finished product.
- Do you sell merchandise like dry goods or live stock?
ACUAPROF is more a full Service Company rather than a retail store. However, we supply most of our customers with everything they need, but if you are in the market for a do it yourself project; We advise that you visit our partners’ websites. They will offer great value for your dollar. See page on links. We supply all kinds of food for fishes and invertebrates. As far as Live Stock, we select and deliver only. Again, if you are in the search for a special fish, we can help and save you time.
Live Rock and Marine plants are usually in stock all the time. Our current facility can hold up to 10,000 heads of coral and fish for quarantine purposes.
- How about fish tanks and stands?
We stock most commercial sizes, please browse our product guide ‘Products’ to choose which best suits your needs. Call or email us for an estimate. We can also customize almost anything you can dream of.
- Do you also do seminars and educational programs?
