Our internal policies have only 1 rule, make the Tank Perfect to the T. Aquariums built by Madoverfish are such beautiful pieces of conversation within families and friends at Homes that people are known to start boasting about them, hosting more parties than they usually do and literally watching TV goes for a toss.
With advancement of technology in almost all fields of our lives, we employ some of the best practices to minimize maintenance of your residential Aquariums, by having Automatic feeders, Self-cleansing systems, remote alarms, and even remote video & control if desired. Our premium Aquariums usually come with Touch switches, dimmer control, automatic time-set lighting and a host of technological features when necessary. Basically we want to let more people know that maintaining an Aquarium is not an issue, it is easy and when done it is fun. Our clients go for vacation for even a month without bothering and having peace of mind that the Aquarium and its inhabitants would be safe.
Below is the snapshot of a typical Large Residential Aquarium, Madoverfish executed amongst the many. It will give a brief overview of how such big tanks are built in Luxury homes.
Build a 156″ Long Aquarium with 48″ in Height and 56″ in breadth tapering into 36″ breadth – In a High rise building in one of the most premium societies in Mumbai (Bombay, India)! How do we get the huge aquarium inside the house? Whether the slab in an apartment would support that weight? What will happen to the amount of Water being consumed? Its going to be a 1600 Gallon Aqauarium with filtration after all. What kind of a frame will support that weight? Will the slab hold it or will go crashing through the roof? And again how efficiently can the job get done with minimal electricity and water consumption? How will you aquascape the tank? What fishes? – The client is asking whether we can deliver his imagination!
Madoverfish with expertise on such projects, dont consider anything impossible. We look deep into the options and if they are not there, we create them. Nothing is impossible! We shake hands and work with the clients. Yes the first step is to study the challenge!
Design & Plan
Convey the client on the steps required & get approval. We then start on getting structural engineers erect specific load bearing I-beams, reinfoce, get 3rd party audit certificates, sign off from society, — all before we commence on building the huge aquarium. A Safety factor of 1:3.5 was considered on this project. The I-beam was erected to carry load 20 tons on a continuous basis. Get permissions on Hoisting special crane, modification of building window to get the tank in, doing all this with proper drawings, approvals etc. i.e. remaining a compliant Aquarium company.
