Ethical Fishkeeping

The needs of the livestock are our up-most priority. By creating our 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 any way.

Service

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

Choice

Our long-term relationships with well-known manufacturers means we can source new products first. We offer a comprehensive range products, but if there's a product you want that isn't in our stores, we can order it in for you.

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 our Livestock Charter.


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

Sustainability 

& Responsibility

We ensure that we are being both sustainably and environmentally responsible by working closely with our suppliers. We also firmly believe that sustainability is an issue that should be shared and developed within the community - be it through education in schools or general media, so we hope our Sustainability page can offer some helpful information.
