Fish buying in the UK!

I'm in Leeds, West Yorkshire, but there aren't any big LFS's nearby. There are 2 within a 5 min drive, but they're not very well stocked and take ages to get any new stock in.

I'm just wondering if there's any LFS's anyone can recommend within a reasonable driving distance of Leeds? Good, healthy stock, wide range, maybe the ability to special order, etc.

Also, is there anywhere mail order in the UK?

Cheers!

Mark

We have a fairly decent one here in Manchester.. so it's not exactly local, but not a huge drive either. I remember it taking about 45 mins from city to city?

It's called Oasis Aquarium.. they do have a website with directions and contact info on it. No online shopping or anything like that though. It's more like a magazine advert than a website.

Yeah they usually have lots in stock.. It would be a good idea to give them a call before driving down, especially since you're not local. I've had nothing but good experiences with them so far so not really sure about guarantees.
