Frequently Asked Questions
Due to the thick glass used in their construction, EA aquariums are heavy, even when empty.
Ensure that sufficient people are available to carry the aquariums and cabinets safely when they are delivered. The 1800 models will need six to eight people, and are extremely heavy.
Every EA aquarium should be placed on a strong (ideally concrete,) level floor. EA cabinets have been extensively weight tested, but uneven floors will cause stress on any cabinet and aquarium and should be avoided. Wonky cabinet doors can often be a sign of an uneven floor, as cabinet doors are adjusted correctly on a level floor at the point of manufacture. Ensure that wooden floors and joists are capable of holding the weight of a filled aquarium, with water, rocks and substrate.

No, they come with a pre-fitted protective foam mat as standard.
theAquascaper cabinets come with holes in the cabinet sides as standard. This allows external filter hoses, lighting power cables and CO2 hoses to pass down the sides of the aquarium, leaving the back of the tank clear and uncluttered for photography. The holes in the sides are placed with one near to the back and one near to the front. This enables either side front or side rear mounting of filter hoses and CO2 diffusers, and can help to create a gyre effect in the water, where water spins around the tank in a circular motion. If cabinet side holes are not desired or required, theAquascaper cabinets can be specified and supplied without them at the time of order.
theAquascaper aquariums come with clear silicone exclusively.
