Although it is no longer mandatory to wear a face-covering in public spaces in England as of 27 January 2022, in line with current Government guidance we would encourage our customers to continue to wear face coverings when in close proximity to others for any length of time, or when our stores are particularly busy to continue to protect themselves and our staff. However, this is entirely at the discretion of individuals and down to personal judgement.
Thank you for your ongoing support and keep safe!
School's out for summer and we have some great ideas for fishy fun, in-store and out, to keep the kids occupied during the long summer holidays. Our stores are also teeming with some fantastic pond plants that are starting to show off their stunning flowers - perfect for adding some late summer colour, attracting wildlife and helping to eradicate unwanted algae.
Occasional use of an Activa Block is a fantastic way to give your aquarium water a polish and remove any chemical residues without having to faff about placing it within your filter. It can be added or removed in seconds, making it easy to use in rotation with any additives that you don’t want taken out of your aquarium water, and it’s a great back up for those rare but stressful occasions where unusual measures are needed.
Given the length of time that they’ve been prized as pets, it’s not surprising that Fancy goldfish are available in a range of shapes and colours. Some, such as this Panda oranda seen recently at our Shrewsbury branch, are more rarely seen than others due to the difficulties in breeding fish with stable colouration. Caught mid-yawn, this fish is also demonstrating the mouthparts that are so efficient at grubbing through the sand for food and munching on delicate plants.
