Great little shop!!
The staff are very friendly and helpful and are willing to share a lot of there knowledge I've ended up having very good
conversations in there and learn a lot each time I visit sometimes feeling like I can feel other peoples eyes burning holes in me as they wait in line as one of the guys gets carried away explaining something to me, they stock marine fish and corals, apistos to oscars to some very nice angel fish recently, discus. I'm not to good with cichlid names haha but they do have a variety, plenty or corys and small pretty fish, killifish, loaches plecs and all the usual inc fancy goldfish and shrimp mostly japonica but they do get others in and will order fish in for you I belive. Also I've never seen a dead of half dead fish in there tanks.
They also have tanks in stock from bowls to huuuuuge tanks. Eheim filters
Gravels sands woods redmore roots, mini aquascape rocks,
BUT!! they as far as I know only stock jbl manado as a base, and the plant standard/selection is abit poo, they get hc in but most of the time the plants look abit ropey but I've notice a lot of jbl items coming into stock such as Co2 kits and ferts so maybe this will pick up.
Very pleased I live 5minutes from this gem

My LFS, excellent selection of Dutch plants, hand picked (so im told) every week.
Prices are excellent most pots are Â£2.95 4 for Â£10, this includes stuff like pogostem and Utricularia! I got an absolute bargin this weekend 4 pogo and 4 Utricularia for Â£20 cant be bad.
I go there for my dennerle stuff, sulawesi shrimp and CO2 refills. They also do a lot of rock and wood, everything most plant people want.
They also do pretty much every other aspect of fishkeeping, Tropicals, Africans, Discus, Brackish, Fancy goldfish, Pond fish, Marginal Plants, Marine fish and corals.
Overall a really good shop, They have a g8 deal of free information and a good website with current stocklists, only wish id found there plants sooner as ive payed through the nose for the same plants from 'tropica' stockists.

Really nice little shop with outstanding corals There are some plants but the most common ones. They also have big variety of tropical and marine fish including discus, apistos and shrimps (including red nose shrimps ) and more unusual ones (like new tetras or stiphodon sp.). They also have coldwater fish
Staff is well trained and they are very helpful. It's possible to buy RO water from them and they have lots of dry goods.
Eheim filters are everywhere
Unfortunately they don't have many things for planted aquaria so don't expect CO2 fertilisation systems or plant bases.
Also they don't have redmoor wood or nice stones in offer. I don't know if it's possible to order fish there, but you can always have a try
I've seen some sick fish in there, but it does not happen often.
