Beautiful to look at and low maintenance

A fish aquarium, big or small, is a beautiful addition to a home. Their vibrant colours and tranquil environment brighten up the room, and fish also make the perfect pets for people who love animals but don’t have the time or space for a cat, dog or higher-maintenance furry friend.


They’re perfect for people with allergies and are also good for teaching children the responsibilities of caring for a pet for the first time. Plus they are often easier and less expensive to care for than other pets because they are quiet, don’t shed, slobber, scratch or bring dirt into your home, and they don’t develop separation anxiety.


But fish do require a special environment and dedicated, knowledgeable owners to thrive, which is where we can help, because keeping fish is easy – when you know how!


Come in store and ask us as many questions as you like, before you take the plunge.
