    How many have done it?

    I'm looking for Rhinogobius Candidianus, and I am unable to find any local stockists, Or any in my region! Wildwoods have some but i'm worried about ordering fish online.

    Alternatively has anyone seen any in the Manchester/Northwest?

    the fish are sent in an over night courier service, that gets to you before 12:30(or something like that) packaging was a big thick polystyrene box, newspaper, the fish double baged, and a heat pack, they are brilliant :D

    Hello,

    I have never used Wildwoods, but they seem to have a good reputation. I have however ordered from Trimar several times in the past. The only downside i would say is that you are not able to choose the fish, but if you are buying say cardinals you would not really be able to choose individuals in a shop either.

    Hi Hokum,

    There are a few places to look around the area. First is pier, call them rather than look on the web page.

    Next try World of water in Altrincham. they had some a while back labeled as stiphadon.

    And if you don't mind a bit of a drive then AZ aquatics (just south of Macclesfield /West of Congleton near the M6) has a Rhinogobius species in now labeled as stiphadon as well. I can get a pic of these as it is only about 10 minutes from work.

    Further away you could try Maidenhead at telford, they often stock this sort of thing.

    Rob
