oh i do believe they are tring to sort it. they would be fools not to!
i didnt mean algae fur btw...it was fur growing on dead fish lol!
doubt thats to anyones taste for decoration purposes..tho they do say it takes all sorts...
i didnt really look for kribs tbh as not something i could consider in my tanks due to my current stock
spent longer in the other sections ie bogwood & decor.

Went in yesterday and it seems not a lot has changed, really poorly fish for sale from cories that are lingering round the surface for air and plecs with horrible sunken bellies. Also had a display tank with discus that needed to be put out of their misery. I really can't see how they stay open. All I can think is that the tropicals barely break even finantially and they do ok with goods and reptiles. I definately won't even buy dry goods or equipment there untill I see an improvement in the livestock and I would advise others to do the same.

I agree Kev. Their reptiles are all really well looked after (but really overpriced too). I hate that their mbu puffers are kept in the plant tanks, they looks so bored it's unreal and they're also under-fed. Puffers are one fish which should be fat.

I think the whole store is over priced, I bought fuzzy mice from there once, £7.90 for 10...I go to Coast to Coast in Darlington now as they charge £10 for 20.

Although, I have to say their live foods (crickets, locusts etc) are reasonably priced if you're buying in bulk. Though as I only have one animal that eats insects that's no use to me Sad

They would have sold it on if that were the case, most likely scenario is it was struggling and went under. They spent a fortune on it and it was well done but imo they came accross as hobbyists who should have had a fish house not a shop.
