Are there any mail-order places in the UK that do fish??

I've seen a couple when searching around Google. But neither had pictures or descriptions for the fish, and one didn't even have prices. It's really quite poor considering how many good American sites there are.

Maybe start this question as a new thread & see whether any of the other UK based peeps pick up on it?

I know I'd like to know

Off to "Anglia Aquatics" near Norwich tomorrow, they are supposed to be good & although they don't show livestock on their website I'll ask them about it.....


Cheers Shelton.

I've just found a dead crab at the back of the tank (definitely not a molt - I've seen a few of these now), shell-less.

Should I take him out or keep him in?

I found a dead crab (hitchhiker) the other day, I took him out since I have a small tank & the inhabitants get fed everyday anyways....

*edit* F.Y.I that vist to Anglia Aquatics was really a waste, they had just moved & were more interested in setting up thier new tanks than asnwering my questions! not only that I bought 6 turbo's off them & when I got home I found that 3 of them were just empty shells!!

Found this great little shop, happens to be 30mins away from where I live, run by a guy who started as just a hobby & is finally hoping to go full time just before christmas:

Cheers Shelton - I've left the crab in overnight, should I really worry about getting it out in the morning (ammonia etc.)?

I suppose it depends on the size of the dead crab, what sort of cleanup crew you have & whether you have long tongs/don't mind getting your arm wet!! 8)

Cheers Shelton.

It's a smallish hermit crab, I have 10 other small hermits.

There's a bit of him left...OK to leave him in there?

If there's not alot left the other crabs should clean it up, no shrimps yet?
