There are 13 Fishkeeper Scotland stores across the country that are 'run by fishkeepers, for fishkeepers' and offer 'everything for the fishkeeper'. We are an independently operated arm of Maidenhead Aquatics, who have more than 160 specialist aquatic stores across the UK.

By working closely with our livestock suppliers and breeders from all over the world, we have access to the widest and healthiest range of fish and invertebrates possible whilst ensuring we are sustainable.

Our stores offer a wide range of products from market leading premium brands such as JBL and Microbe-Lift, and exclusive products only available from our stores such as our beautiful range of AquaOak premium oak aquariums.

We firmly believed that the key ingredient to our success is employing fish keepers. The teams in our stores are full of people who share your enthusiasm for the hobby, and if you’ve visited more than one of our stores, you’ll know that as Scotlands leading aquatics retailer, each branch has its own character and specialities.

We try to educate, support and share our passion and expertise for the hobby to help fuel and innovate the future of aquatics.


Ethical Fishkeeping

The needs of the livestock are our up-most priority. By creating our very own ‘Livestock Charter’, we aspire to meet the highest welfare standards in the industry. We will never knowingly sell products that compromise the livestock in anyway.



Our expert teams, online and offline, deliver product and livestock with in depth knowledge and passion, informed by latest research and current best practice.



Our extensive network of suppliers and strong long-term relationships with well-known aquatic manufactures means that we are able to source new products ahead of the wider market. We are able to offer a diverse and comprehensive portfolio of products to meet a spectrum of customer needs. And if there's a product you want that isn't in our stores, chances are we can order it for you.



We are always looking to offer new products and approaches to fishkeeping that sustain and nurture livestock and fuel the passion of our customers.



We never stop learning about our passion and we continually look for ways of sharing that knowledge with our customers and the wider community to support the welfare of livestock and nurture a love of aquatics. 



We are committed to providing our customers with real value: great products at good prices, supported by exceptional and friendly customer service. We invest time in getting our prices right to ensure they remain competitive we will not knowingly be beaten on price for any of our products or accessories (excluding plants and livestock) which is supported by our price promise.  

Our Livestock Charter

Our aim is to promote responsible fishkeeping by offering sound advice and only selling healthy livestock. We care for your fish as much as you do and their welfare is our top priority, so we always aim to abide by the following code of practice:

  • We will not knowingly sell unhealthy livestock.

  • We will not sell fish that are unsuitable for captivity.

  • We will not sell artificially coloured fish.

  • We will not sell genetically modified fish.

  • We will not sell inappropriate species for nano aquaria.

  • We will not sell both fish and aquaria on the same day.

  • We will not sell large numbers of fish for newly-established aquaria.

These principles have been created with the welfare of fish in mind, so we appreciate your understanding.
