    Asking for a friend (AKA me) who is traveling a lot for work:

    Any recommendations for a solid and trustworthy service to maintain a tiny tank (~60g total volume) in the bay area? Some intensive plumbing setup too would be good (eg. sump in another room and pipes/electronics going through walls).

    Location: Albany, California

    Tank Setup
    1. Setup tank
    2. Plumb through one wall to opposite side to an external sump system
    3. Setup all the plumbing (I will have most of the equipment, though might need PVC / connectors)
    4. Setup the electrical neatly (I can never avoid a total gnarly nest no matter how hard I try)
    5. Hang light securely over tank
    6. Plumb the ATO reservoir

    Twice a month, with one being a few simple things and the latter doing some more maintenance work
    1. Water change, clean glass, clear skimmer, check systems
    2. Same as 1, but adding: clean filter socks, change reactor media (phosban, charcoal), clean sump compartments and acrylic, test water, adjust any dosing

    I realized I should be a bit more specific. Updated the first post!

  6. Hi, your to far away for aquarium service but I'd be more than happy to set up your tank. Install would be $500 to $900 depending on the setup, equipment, and location of the tank. Good luck!!
