Why do we do what we do? Okay, here goes! In the words of Karen Carpenter (and her brother), “we’ve only just begun


After keeping fish since the tender age of 8 years old, we ran out of room in the house, so recently acquired the fishroom!

We absolutely love fish and tea… (that’s cups of tea, not that meal you have at the same time when people down south are having their dinner!)

We aim to provide honest and valuable information and advice, with a constant and dynamic presentation of equipment and livestock..and if you can’t see it we’ll get if for you

Where possible we source from breeders both locally and further afield and will try our very best to get tank bred over wild caught wherever possible, so if you’ve got some, let us know!

In spite of being a family owned business, we constantly strive to be competitively priced against both the big boys and eBay sellers in China (for example).

We will not sacrifice the quality of the equipment or livestock we stock and sell though, not just to hit a key price point.

We are about the personal touch and quality service and generally have a smile on our face (apart from really early in the morning!)

We’ve got lots of ideas, and some of them will even be good! Your feedback and input is invaluable, so please feel free to:
