    not sure if this is the right section, but was wondering if Living waters is closing down, as went there over the weekend and most of the tanks were empty and most of the shelves were also empty, it was sad to see it like that. did not even see any staff there as I was looking round, maybe they were out the back, anyone know anything about this? would be a shame to see it go.

    It's been like that a while now, seems to be on a downward spiral.

    I do not know the place but the same happened here,really run down & empty found out it was prior to a new owner taking over.
    All's well now full clean tanks & stocked shelves.

    Well i was only in there a little while but saw no one, as i say they may have been out the back, but no one was to be seen. Its a shame to see it empty like that, as they are very knowledgeable and would be shame to see them go.

    Hi guys just to let you know living waters is still open and alive and kicking . They are struggling but since Jan this year they have made big improvements with more fish stock plus a amazing choice of plants plus recently adding a scape pit . It's now full of great hardscape and everything you could need for the planted tank. So if you're in London or southeast make sure you get down there and show support

    Unfortunately true now... it’s being demolished for flats... although will continue to sell a few oddball plants via Facebook and the website.

    A real shame! Living waters played a big part in my path to loving planted tanks... I will never forget the mature moss scapes they had. Darren has some good contacts in the plant world so I’m looking forward to seeing what comes about from it.
