horns garden center

Post by carpguru on 5/10/2011, 20:44

another one i have been visiting for many years this
is another tropical fish shop set in a garden center
that also as a restaurant i find this place OK the staff
are very pleasant and knowledgeable there a good stock of
dry goods there is a average selection of fish of the community
type fish but they do have a good selection of rift Vally and Malawi
cichlids and the restaurant as good value for money meals which
is always packed

yeah I can recommend Horns as I have dealt with them for years. I use to work there a good few years back mainly sorting the fish side out. and we used to supply them cichlids before and when we had our shop. I still supply them with a few cichlids from time to time. They also stock a few discus and oddballs and have a lot of coldwater fish and ponds outside with koi.

I like Horn's it was my local when I lived in South Hetton.

Always loads of unusual stuff as well as the regular tropicals. When I needed to re-home my Synodontis and an Angel they went there.

i popped in today, seen no dead fish but i thought it was expensive. £1.40 for a platy and the plants were £1.99... there was some young BN Plecs in there for £5.99 Evil or Very Mad

on the plus side i seen some sterbai tetra they look really nice.
