Connecticut Aquarium plants and fish selection services are offered by Normal Aquatics.  We are aquarium professionals with 25 years of experience specializing in aquatic ecosystems. Our aquascape design services aim to assist aquarium owners in choosing suitable plants and fish for their aquariums. Here’s a breakdown of what these services may entail:

  1. Plant Selection:

    • Assessing Tank Conditions: We will evaluate the existing tank setup, including its size, lighting, filtration, and water parameters (temperature, pH, hardness). This assessment helps determine the appropriate plant species that can thrive in the given conditions.
    • Plant Species Recommendations: Based on the tank assessment, We will suggest a variety of aquatic plant species suitable for the aquarium. They will consider factors such as the desired aesthetic, plant size, growth rate, and compatibility with other tank inhabitants.
    • Plant Placement and Maintenance: We offer guidance on the placement of plants within the aquarium to achieve an appealing layout and proper plant growth. We also provide advice on plant care, including fertilization, trimming, and preventing algae growth.
  2. Fish Selection:

    • Understanding Tank Compatibility: We will inquire about the aquarium’s size, water parameters, and existing tank mates to determine compatible fish species. We consider factors like temperament, behavior, and specific habitat requirements.
    • Fish Species Recommendations: Based on the tank assessment and compatibility considerations, we suggest suitable fish species for the aquarium. We can recommend a variety of fish with diverse colors, sizes, and activity levels to meet the owner’s preferences.
    • Fish Health and Care: We include information on the nutritional needs, feeding habits, and potential health issues of the recommended fish species. This guidance ensures proper care and enhances the well-being of the fish in the aquarium.
  3. Overall Aquascape Design:

    • Aesthetic Suggestions: We offer insights on creating a visually appealing aquascape design by combining suitable plants, fish, and other tank decorations. We can suggest layout ideas, color schemes, and focal points to enhance the overall aesthetic appeal of the aquarium.
    • Environmental Balance: We consider the ecological balance of the aquarium ecosystem, suggesting plant and fish combinations that contribute to water quality, oxygenation, and waste management. This helps maintain a healthy and balanced environment for all tank inhabitants.
