Cornwall Care Aquarium Testimonial

Aquamacs have had a fish tank placed in our Dementia Nursing home for more than nine years now, it gives so much pleasure to everyone Residents , visitors and staff.
We have also used it as a fundraiser for Charity purposes with people naming a fish and then being their sponsor for a year, having a photo of their chosen fish to take home for a bit of fun.

Aquamacs look after the tank, all we do is feed the fish daily with the food that Aquamax provide for us, it is a great service that they provide and if there should ever be a problem they are always on the end of the phone to give advice or they come out.

Stuart and his Team are friendly and unobtrusive when doing there monthly service on the tank and checking the fish.

New Column Acrylic Aquarium Install

Here are a couple of photos from another new Aquarium install this year.

This is for a nursery in London and is one of our very popular column acrylic aquariums.
As you can see the nursery has put on extra stickers and information so that the aquarium is educational as well as fun for the children to look at.

We love it!

New Aquarium Design and Install Mahiki Bar Mayfair London

 

We were first approached by the Mahiki Bar in Mayfair London in late September 2016. They wanted us to build an aquarium for them between the entrance stairs and bar area of the club, as this was a very dark area and need a complete overhaul.

After visiting and discussing their plans, we agreed on a design that was in keeping with their existing decor, as well as making a statement to the entrance of the club.
The installation went without any problems and took two days – the biggest drawback being lack of parking in Central London!

The aquarium is 6` in length with a dark bamboo surround. It has LED lighting, and because it is in a club, we are putting in large, bright African Cichlids as these are relatively hardy fish.
All feedback about the install has been very positive and we look forward to keeping the tank looking fabulous.

Little Mermaid Aquarium – Savoy Hotel London – A Case Study

April-blog-aquariums

We were approached by an events company in London.  The brief consisted of;

“we are holding an event in March in Central London and it is Little Mermaid themed, we are looking to hire for one day 4 x column aquariums  and two at one height and two a bit smaller – please could we have some rough costings?”

So not a lot to go on!!

April-blog-aquariums2

We sent off our quote immediately , but it was the end of February before we got the go ahead and the exact location of the event – The Savoy Hotel in London – the specs of the aquariums had changed as well – they now wanted 3 x taller columns and 1 x smaller one. This was fine – as we have a large stock of aquariums.

We had to research and source decor and fish that would be suitable for the theme of the Little Mermaid, with help from our daughter who is a Disney Fanatic this was no problem.

The spec changed again in March – all very last minute – they now wanted 4 x 6` column aquariums! – again this was fine as we had them already. The aquariums were to stand on plinths, so we had to get the weight when full of water, fish and decor of the aquariums.  We finally got some final details through a week before the event – we didn’t know who the event was for until we arrived on the Saturday. We were then told it was for Tamara Ecclestone’s daughter’s Birthday.

Saturday – Arrival on site at 15.00 hrs

Set by approx – 21.00 hrs

Sunday – event 14.00 – 18.00 hrs
Derig – straight away

 

The main concerns were parking, access and would there be enough water pressure to fill the aquariums in time. Luckily all this was OK, but until we were actually on site – this was an unknown factor.

On arrival to the SavoyHotel on the Saturday afternoon – we were shown to the ballroom, given the floor plan and just left to get on with it!! – there was a large number of contractors present building all the sets for this event, but everything from our point of view went very smoothly with no hitches. It was important to get the water conditions right in the aquariums so that the fish have time to acclimatise before the event – and we had over 60 large fish to deal with. All the fish were happy and they were all swimming around and they are all still healthy after their `celeb event`.

The aquariums were checked again on Sunday prior to the party – everything was perfect and we had really positive feedback from the event organisers.

Client Feedback

`Better than expected` and `very straightforward to deal with you` and `pleased about the number and size of fish`

Children always love fish especially the more quirky type, so our aquariums are very popular with children of all ages.  We are always `on call` for these type of events should we be needed.

We have been doing these type of events and short term hires for a long time now and we always exceed the expectations of the brief – our staff are very experienced and love this type of job.

Pembroke College May Ball – Aquarium Installation

aquirium-design-vide1

We were chosen to supply an aquarium for the Pembroke College May Ball 2015 in Cambridge (it was held in June )
This is a major event and we were very pleased to have this opportunity.

The aquarium was set up by the ticket entrance and being on a cobbled surface gave us a few challenges. We soon sorted this with some well placed boards.
Although it was a long day the actual install only took 3 hours and client was delighted with the result. We received many positive comments about the aquarium.

It was a large install – the actual aquarium is:
60″ L x 24″ H x 30″ front to back. plus the height of the cabinet – which is usually made to measure on site – to fit in with the clients requirements.
