@Marty I reckon you're the best one to ask, what do they have over there how big is the marine section? with 2 weeks off soon I might drive over and have a look around its just an hour or so away from me.

They generally have a decent amount of marine stock. It's not a huge place but then it's an independent the higher end fish they can easily source if there anything you after.

Full stock wise is dependent on how busy they have been there is times when it's rammed and other times when there is not much but it soon gets re-plenished within a week.

It would be worth dropping them a PM on here or they should see this thread and you can ask how stocked they are at the time you thinking of heading this way or alternatively ask me as I'm down there 3 or 4 times a week so know what they generally have. If you go let me know and if im about ill pop down :)


There rock is fine I have a fair bit of it in my tank they had a shipment of dry rock come in end part of last week so if you wanting some then worth popping in.

They also have plenty of live rock as well.

Nice one thanks Marty, Might not be till after Christmas, it just got me thinking they seem to be pretty varied in what they get in. Ive ordered some Barlett Anthias from my local Maidenhead aquatics the other day. It was on Saturday the manager was the only one there so well under staffed at the weekend, whether he will get them in who knows.

If there is anything you want they can normally get it as I wanted a Jewel tang it took them about a month to source one but they can generally get what ever you want also if you request they will put a fish through a seperate QT system they have prior to you collecting it all mine have been put through copper by them with no issues they also managed to pull my stock back from the brink of death with WS so they done a good job :)
