Hello,

I will be in London this month. Is there anything interesting to visit regarding aquariums and aquascaping apart from the London Aquarium?

Thanks

Thanks

Possibly too late, but the aquarium at London Zoo is, in my opinion, a better bet for enthusiasts than the London Aquarium. No walk-through shark tanks, but some truly lovely reef tanks, and some decent planted biotopes. If you are in South London, the Horniman Museum has an interesting small aquarium section - it's only £2 to get in, which reflects it's size, so I wouldn't travel across the whole of London to get to it, but it is nice. ADC is a decent fish shop, but Living Waters is an experience.

Hello ppl,

I went to ADC and its truly amazing on the fish selection and plants and aquascapes they have...compared to where I live they are awesome! It was the first time I saw ADA products and mostly ADA tanks...they are something else...bit expensive :) too bad I can't take one home :( there was an ADA gravel...maybe powersand...that costs £71!!! A bit overpriced imo if column fertilisation is also required...

In my opinion ADC is the cheapest place in London and all the Ada products they have in standard price.
