Water Gardens

Water gardens bring soothing sounds and create a relaxing atmosphere with exotic plants and colorful blooms. Our designs include top level filtration, aquatic plants, natural rock waterfalls, beautiful stonework and of course pond fish. Our Water Gardens are typically 2’ deep which will allow pond fish (excluding large koi) to winter over in the northeast. The majority of municipalities do not require fencing for water gardens.

Koi Ponds

typically 4-5’ deep and include upgraded filtration to maintain crystal clear water.  At this depth, koi can winter over with the help of a bubbler and heater. Since plants are very helpful in maintaining water quality, we create integrated bog areas where plants grow and clean the water without being eaten by the koi.  Enjoy interacting with your friendly, colorful koi as you gather around the pond to relieve the stress of your day.   

Pond-less Water Features

include a beautiful waterfall/stream area that will cascade into a reservoir area that is built underground.  Pond-less water features are typically lower maintenance than a pond with fish.  Beautiful aquatic plants add another dimension to enhance your experience.  The addition of low voltage lighting will extend your viewing pleasure into the evening.

Pool Waterfalls

we use natural stone to create a stunning waterfall display that will cascade back into your pool and recirculate through the filtration system.  We review your existing pump’s ability to run the pool and the waterfall simultaneously, which may require a larger pump.  With automation many pumps can be operated through an app on your phone. Add LED lighting for a stunning evening display.

Recreation Ponds

unlike a chlorinated or salt pool, recreation ponds create a natural lake-like environment for swimming.  We use aquatic plants and filtration to maintain water quality. Our designs  include beautiful aquatic plants, LED illuminated streams and waterfalls to enhance your swimming pleasure.  We can also take photos from this site as we use their equipment

Pond Maintenance

we offer several maintenance plans tailored to your needs. Some clients engage our services for spring opening/cleaning, Fall netting and pond closing. Many clients prefer our complete program that includes bi-weekly maintenance throughout the season. (Ask for a quote).

Plunge Pools

we are proud to have partnered with Soake Pools in providing a state-of-the-art system for your backyard pleasure. Plunge Pools are precast concrete pools with beautiful tiling, premium filtration, and complete automation.  Plunge Pools are heated, well insulated and can operate for 12 months of the year, including in the northeast.  Different sizes are available with many options including fully in-ground or semi above ground.   Our team will handle every phase of the installation including, excavation, electrical and plumbing.   Designs may include patios, water features and beautiful plantings to enhance your outdoor experience. 

Pond & Lake Management

many natural ponds and lakes have become overrun with unwanted weeds and algae. Leaves and other debris, which have accumulated on the bottom, are the source of nutrients that feed algae and water weeds. Controlling nutrients is the key to cleaning up your pond. All ponds will benefit from bottom aeration and bio-augmentation which will break down the bottom layer of pond muck and begin to restore your pond. We also offer weed removal, installation of floating fountains and natural aquatic and terrestrial plantings to improve the environment. The addition of these “good” plants will enhance the beauty and aid in the removal of nutrients that feed algae and weeds.

Aquarium Installation &

Eddie’s Aquarium has been servicing freshwater, marine, reef aquariums (ponds too) in homes and offices since 1975. We are fully insured and are available to install standard aquariums as well as design and install custom aquariums and enclosures. If you would love a beautiful aquarium, but without the work, we are here to make your dream come true.

We perform one-time cleanings, tank moves, or we can create a maintenance schedule to suit your needs and budget. Our service area is primarily within a 1-hour drive of our Cohoes, NY location, although we can make exceptions. Services are billed on an hourly basis, plus materials. We can customize a service plan to ensure a consistent rate for regular services.

Our team of service techs are experts in the field of aquatics. We install top quality equipment in a neat and professional manner. If you’re looking for an automated system, we are Neptune APEX certified. Aquarium service requires attention to detail as well as active participation from the client. This may sound daunting, but an open line of communication between the Eddie’s Team and the client is critical to the success and long-term enjoyment of your eco-system. No aquarium with living organisms is self- maintaining. Typically, once a tech is assigned, the same tech will continue to service your aquarium to ensure continuity of care, complete understanding of your system and establish a relationship with you, the hobbyist.

Looking to add something new to your aquarium? Your dedicated tech can send you photos of new and interesting species that are in-stock at our state-of-the-art retail facility and acclimate them into your system at the time of your next service. Or, many of our service clients enjoy visiting our facility to select items to be added to their aquarium at the time of their next visit. We will consult with you to ensure we only bring you specimens that will do well within your system.

We also provide on-site consultations if you are experiencing challenges or want advice on your system.
