all the fish stores around my area are terrible. they very rarely have plecos or bristlenose and when they do they are ridiculously over priced. something about them not having many suppliers. they told me once i get fry to an inch long they will offer me good prices for them so that's what i plan on doing Smile. i would currently rate them about a 5 out of 10. Sad

Opening soon in Sheffield is Blue Ocean Aquatics Ltd, it's gonna be fantastic, Wayne has been helping Sean on and of and they're even having a coffee corner with tables to keep your other half happy whilst you waltz around buying loadsa fish.

It's on a main route and closer to Meadowhall too so is a lot easier to find than his earlier shop, and some others in Sheffield.

I don't have the exact address but it is near to the snake shop. Unfortunately I couldn't tell you what exactly he will be stocking, but if you have a word with him if you go, then he may order them in for you.

He should be opening anytime soon. As soon as I find out, I'll post on here and with the full address lol

Guys withdrawning my recommendation of Swish Fish in Bradford

Although he's a nice guy I do not believe his fish are of good stock

My son purchased Cory's from him recently one died within 24 hours so we contacted the store to find no 24/48 policy in place which most shops have these days. Would not have been too bothered but my 9 year old has it own tank and purchased these from his birthday money.

I personally have just lost
2 x LDA16 Calico Longfin BN Juvies
2 x Red/Brown BN Juvies
Over the past week absolutley gutted ! Only had them just over 2 weeks also.

All fish were kept in 2 different mature quarantine tanks which i check and double check the water quality on a daily basis so I am confident no problems with the water quality. I very rarely loose fish but to buy 6 from one store and loose 5 of them all within 2 weeks for no apparent reason.

It may just be bad luck but I doubt I will venture back there

I used to rate it 7/10 however it's now 2/10 and only 2 due to choice of BN plecs

Wow

Sorry to hear of all your losses, must have been heartbreaking.

We got some midsize albino BN's and they are still going well. It is strange that you've lost so many, and especially your sons.

Good will goes a long way, and in this climate no one can afford to alienate customers, especially with the t'internet being a great tool to tell potentially hundreds of prostective customers that they ain't that good.

Losing the odd one I can cope with buy 5 fish from same LFS within 2 weeks is not on.
I was gonna see how good this guy was and give him a list of some plecs I want and see if he can get them but I do not think I will bother now

I know he gets all his fish from czech republic but most LFS's get fish from here atm

You're right Jag, most do come from the Czech Republic, and having seen the price lists, you wouldn't believe how cheap they come in Shocked Shocked Shocked

However, what they offer on the list and what ya get is 2 different things.

I think the biggest thing is how long they quarantine the fish before selling them.

Also, there was a programme on the tv the other night about what rights you have regarding pets/animals dying soon after purchase, and I believe that you have at least a week before the "warranty" no longer counts. How easy to enforce is another matter, especially with fish, as we all know how settling fish in can be.

Also, I got it wrong, we didn't get the albino's from there lol, it was a male brown longfin who is about to moved out from his first brood cheers cheers

He tends to have run of the mill BN's, and specialises in Malawi's. Wayne went the other weekend and said the new set up was looking good, came back with a pair of apistogramma cockatoidies which promptly spawned a week later lol cheers cheers cheers

These are now open, and having talked with Sean, he is willing to order in fish for us if there is enough demand. Of course the problem is if they come in (as they do 99% of the time) smaller than stated on the list. You can find his shop here Blue Ocean Aquatics Ltd

A map to them is here, although I have pilfered the link from the snake shop 2 doors away lol map

Contact numbers are Contact: 0114 3279498 / 07543 485558 They mainly have marine at the moment, but are building up the fresh water and already have some L numbers, not sure what they are though lol

If you pop in, tell 'em Wayne and Angi sent ya Smile

I have to say though that is the best aquatics shop by far, fantastic size, great tanks, welcoming, and a mean cup of fresh coffee available Wink
