Marine Invertebrates

From corals & sponges to shrimps & crabs, for many

marine fishkeepers it’s the invertebrates rather than

the fish that truly fascinate.

In recent years, advances in equipment & understanding have made keeping corals much simpler.... We stock a wide range of invertebrates, however stock levels do vary, so if you are travelling a long distance, or in search of something particular then please phone before you travel. We hope the photos on this page give some idea of the quality of our corals. To keep Corals alive & healthy it's essential to provide them with :- 1) Good water quality. To achieve this don't over feed. Don't over stock with fish. Do carry out regular water changes. Do use an efficient protein skimmer and an efficient filter. Do use R.O. water as most tap water can contains high levels of phosphates, nitrates, etc. 2) Good lighting Until recently we recommended metal halide lights as first choice, but if these are not practical because of cost or space considerations then the new generation of T5 lights make a good alternative. We stock a wide range of T5 products and our staff are happy to advise you on the best option for your particular circumstances. Alternatively there are an increasing number of excellent LED lighting systems, these offer low running costs, and low levels of heat production, which can soon repay the initial expenditure. 3) Stable temperatures try to ensure your aquarium is situated in a cool location and that heat generating equipment is well ventilated, to prevent the tank from overheating in summer. If necessary we can supply a range of aquarium chillers, but in the UK at least, provided the aquarium is located in a reasonably cool room, a chiller is not likely to prove essential.
