Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, we’re confident you’ll find something to excite and inspire you. We carefully source our fish from reputable suppliers both in the UK and abroad, prioritizing their health and quality over price.

To ensure their well-being, all new arrivals undergo a resting period in a separate 70-tank quarantine area before they are made available for sale. Only when we’re 100% satisfied with their condition do we move them to our sales area. This meticulous process guarantees that our sales tanks are consistently well stocked, offering you the opportunity to discover something new and captivating each time you visit.

Thank you Roger, for the advice and time you gave me to sort out a problem with the U V pump. You went out of your way to show me and rectify the problem and it was much appreciated. I will not hesitate to use the aquatic centre again after such service.

The best pet shop I’ve ever been to and this will most probably be the only pet shop I go to from that one the staff are friendly and the best thing is they know what they’re talking about.

Very friendly, staff are knowledgeable and always keep a clean and tidy place


Excellent place to buy fish and fish accessories. I purchased a lovely quite large calico moor (coldwater) with lovely tiger stripes. Hugh stock of fish, really well kept. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to buy fish.
