Evaluations

On-site: Estimate (quick evaluation)

During an onsite estimate, we spend about 15 minutes evaluating the primary aspects of your aquarium, such as lighting and filtration or consider locations for a future aquarium. We then spend 15 to 30 minutes explaining our findings to you. We do not test water parameters, or give a formal report / action plan for improvements.

This service is ideal for anyone that is currently unhappy with their current service provider, is considering service for an existing aquarium, and/or anyone planning a new aquarium.

We will also provide a quote for maintenance services, such as our weekly service plan or an estimate for renovating your aquarium.

The fee for an on-site evaluation is $75. The full amount of this fee will be credited back should you choose to have Reef eScape service or install an aquarium.
