Titchfield very good and staff good! I would suggest north end aquatics on Kingston road in Portsmouth, on the corner of powerscourt road. I know the one in gosport and have to agree! Also I would strongly recommend going further afield to eastleigh and look in tropical paradise! Amazing corals and I found the people in there very knowledgable! Other than that- creature comforts in totton, Maidenhead in fairoak, aquajarden in fairoak. All a little trek from gosport but worth a look! Hopefully someone else will chime in with some that I have not heard of and I will be taking a look this weekend!

How much do u think I will need I have no idea I'm new to all this. Also how would I go about cleaning ocean rock?

Once again thanks for all you're comments.
Hi ya Badman

you could just do what i did and use aquatic sealer and stick them striaght to the bottom of the tank and build up just leave it 24 hours befor adding water

Hi everyone. I'm down in Kent. Just wondering if it's the whole of the uk or just down near me that sells shrimp at stupid costs compared to the us.. Where I am it's 4 per red cherry shrimp!

The whole of the uk is a rip off, you won't find them much cheaper anywhere. The us seems to be cheaper for all aquatic stuff.

Yer I thought so, it's pretty bad. The problem is that there aren't many local fish shops around.. Only one near me other than pets at home and its about 40mins away. And the range of fish around is a bit disappointing. Pets at Home is pretty lame near me too, no range apart from goldfish and standard tetras.

Also, anyone know of any good shops online in the uk that sell snails? In particular nerite snails? Only seen one snail in about 5 or 6 shops and it was an apple snail..

Just had a look at their site, there is one in Dartford, Sevenoaks, Ramsgate & Tunbridge wells. All have a kent address but obviously I know kent is a huge place - the garden of England as they say!

Ex garden of England haha, can't remember who is now but we have been usurped lol. And is Maidenhead aquatics somewhere you recommend? I think I went to the dartford one a while back and was VERY impressed but it's a bit far away. Sevenoaks and tunbridge wells are both do-able though I just hadn't realised they had one! Thanks a heap mate!
