Tropical Fish

Tropical fish keeping is an immensely popular hobby, not least because of the huge variety of fish that are available.

Here at The Aquatic Habitat we pride ourselves on the range and quality of fish we stock. Whether you are just starting out in this wonderful hobby or are a seasoned hobbyist we are sure you will find plenty to interest and excite you in our tanks.

We have over 100 freshwater aquariums, each of at least 75 litres capacity. These are backed up by a large number of quarantine tanks, which enable us to ensure that our sale tanks are fully stocked with healthy fish at all times.

Most sales tanks contain at least three or four varieties of fish, all clearly labelled with computer generated labels, which as well as the common name and price of the fish, include further information such as scientific name, date of arrival to our premises, approximate maximum size, plus other information on compatibility and natural country of origin.

We have introduced new and improved labels, which also feature a number of easily read icons, giving a quick and easy visual guide as to the ease of care, compatibility and other general requirements for the fish concerned.

Fish stocks vary so please visit us to see our current available stock.
