You may have seen an aquarium in the office on a business you frequent and thought how nice it would be to have one in your own office. The good news is, more companies are choosing to install aquariums and the start-up costs may not be as high as you think.
The initial cost of starting an aquarium has gone down over the last few years, thanks in part to advancements in technology and energy efficient lighting.
Aquariums in the office provide other benefits as well. In addition to the beautiful backdrop it provides, an aquarium can put employees and guests at ease thanks to its calming effects. Research has shown that gazing at an aquarium reduces stress and lowers blood pressure, which will be good for your employees and guests alike.
Something about an aquarium impresses clients as well, especially if they have any knowledge of the types of fish or coral you keep. You’ll also stand out from the competition!
But, who will take care of it? Are you interested in having an aquarium for your office, but not sure who if anyone in the office will maintain it? Not to worry! Hiring an ongoing service and maintenance plan like the ones we have available here at Blue Planet Aquarium means you won’t have to delegate care to a co-worker. Our regular aquarium maintenance and ongoing service calls are reasonably priced—often not more than maintaining flowers or live plants in the office. Besides, fish and coral are certainly more active than flowers!
