    Shop Name: Ferrybridge Aquatics
    Tropical Fish Marine Fish Aquatic Supplies Aquariums Shop Yorkshire UK

    Location: WF11 8NQ (Lat: 53:42:46N - Lon: 1:16:05W)

    What they offer or specialise in: A bit of everything really. A real Aladdin's cave of fish, plants, tropical and marine fish.

    Had a great range of plants and fish when i went in on Sunday. It is a small shop made up of 6 or 7 sections with a wide and varied variety of fish. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. Had quite a variety of shrimp as well. Not much in the way of tanks or recognisable branded equipment but plenty of supplements and sundries.

    Other than Maidenhead in Stockton garden centre there is:
    Pet Mania
    Cant post the website yet.
    Portrack Lane

    Great range of fish (tropical, marine, cold) and plants, also have axolotls and other amphibians from time to time, staff are a mixed bag, some know loads while others stare blankly at you. They also have a great reptile range if you like that kind of thing.

    If you're in the Hull region there is a couple

    Shop name: Christal Clear Waters
    Location: Skirlaugh Garden & Aquatic Center, Hull Road, Skirlaugh, HU11 5AH.
    Directions: Head out along Holderness Road past Swine can't miss it on your left.
    What they offer or specialise in: Cheapest Redmoor wood i've found in the region, nothing massive but good Nano+ to pico sizes,
    Over all verdict of the shop: Range of Tropical, Marine and Pond, more choice of Marine than most. Plants not great really.

    Shop name: Ings Lane Garden & Watergarden centre
    Location: Dunswell, Hull, HU6 0AL
    Directions: head North out of Hull towards Beverly a big sign on the main road so you shouldn't miss it, carefull when pulling into the driveway bit blind and narrowish.
    What they offer or specialise in: BIG Pond selection probably beset around, Better than average tropical display with Tropica plants in good condition (seen some moss onsale in there too)
    Over all verdict of the shop: clean and tidy, friendly staff, good range of everything can't go wrong i don't think!

    Shop name: Maidenhead Aquatics Beverly
    Location: Hull Road, Woodmansey, Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU17 0RS (sitting in a Strike Garden Centre)
    Directions: If you missed Ings lane then keep going and you'll find this one
    What they offer or specialise in: its a Maidenhead Aquatics... Lots of Tropicals and marine and a bit of pond... the norm i think?
    Over all verdict of the shop: friendly helpful staff... if a bit expensive on the hardware/hardscape

    Shop name: 4pets
    Location: Coletta & Tyson 324 Hull Road, Woodmansey, Beverley, East Yorkshire HU17 0RU UK Tel. +44(0)1482 865410
    Directions: one the same stretch as Ings and MA,
    What they offer or specialise in: general pet with a largeish Fish section
    Over all verdict of the shop: not my favorite place, could do with a bit of a spruce up, tanks a bit dirty... but you never know if you might find a bargain! so worth a quick look if your going to Ings or MA

    Hope it helps!
    Cheers,
    Nutty

    I called in at Ferrybridge Aquatics this week and was taken back by how friendly the staff were and how well stocked they were. I would definitely advise anyone passing Ferrybridge Junction 33 of the M62 to pop in.

    I called in there and thought it looked better on the internet than it did in real life. I'll have to call back next time i'm over that way

    Went to ashby aquatics and pet supplies in Scunthorpe today. Amazing for plants, got; tiger lotus, Amazon swords, sagitaria subulata, crypts, anubias nana. He also had some other amazing plants, Madagascar lace, banana plant, some crazy enormous species I'd never heard of. Really helpful and knowledgeable, get yourself there
