Maintenance: Instructions supplied. Check glass and seals for wear or damage before use. Assemble cabinet and locate aquarium before filling to capacity. Clean aquarium glass, filter trays, filtration media, pump and heater with detergent-free water prior to use. Do not attempt to move aquarium when filled with water. Ensure pump is fully submerged at all times. If flow degrades check pump impellor and pipework for blockage. Clean equipment regularly using existing aquarium water to rinse foams to avoid loss of beneficial bacteria. Do not leave livestock in static water or expose to direct sunlight for a prolonged period of time. We do not recommend leaving light on longer than 8 hours daily. A regular general aquarium maintenance routine is recommended. All aquarium fish tanks should be cycled prior to adding permanent livestock. It is recommended that T8 bulbs are renewed every 6-12 months to maintain efficiency. It is recommended that active carbon filter media is renewed every 3-6 months.

The BigView range can be modified to keep low-maintenance saltwater marine inhabitants, feel free to contact us for marine setup advice.
