“Just want to say a big thank you to Jon at the Fishroom for his great advice in helping me to set up my new aquarium. I got my tank second-hand some time ago with the plan to set it up as a marine reef. I bought a lot of the components, but then ran out of time to progress the project. Work commitments have since made me anxious that I would have the time for marines.
Jon suggested Malawis as a colourful and easier alternative. I hit a few problems with the tank set up and Jon was great in suggesting solutions, despite the fact I hadn’t purchased anything from him ! To save me money he also usefully advised that the items I’d already bought for the marine tank would be suitable for Malawis.
The tank was ready to go last weekend and Jon advised I start with just 5 fish. They’ve settled in fine and I’m looking to increase my collection when I visit him tomorrow. Jon’s knowledge of aquatics is encyclopaedic and the variety and range of his stock is impressive. My son was particularly impressed with the Albino Salamanders !
My wife got a small tank for the kitchen from the Fishroom and Jon took a lot of trouble to let us have the conditioned water from his display tank. Her five Mountain Minnows are thriving. She has also recently bought some plants from him for the garden pond an remarked that they were in excellent condition compared to what she’d previously bought locally.
Wholeheartedly recommend the Fishroom if you need anything aquatic – great advice and personal service.”
