One of the largest and most impressive freshwater invertebrates that can be safely added to an aquarium alongside peaceful fishes, the Giant fan shrimp (Atya gabonensis) is a filter feeder that needs very fine particle foods. Shy by nature, they tend to find a secure spot where a strong current brings food and oxygen to them. This group was seen at our Derby store.
Cichlids are a very diverse group of fishes and if you were so inclined, you could find species for pretty much every type of aquarium whether community, unheated temperate (even summer pond!), or marine. The early days of the hobby were characterised by experiences of keeping territorial species of this group in tanks that were often too small to allow any tankmates to keep a healthy distance from angry parental cichlids and so a reputation was born.
Our marine specialist stores carry a lot of frags, some of these are produced instore by our staff and it’s become the norm to see rows of brightly coloured tiny corals during store visits. In contrast, seeing a larger specimen such as this Metallic red brain coral (Symphyllia sp.) at our Leicester store is all the more impressive.
New Year, new tetra! Well, fairly new tetra – The Blue ribbon tetra (Hyphessobrycon sp. ‘Blue ribbon’) is an undescribed South American beauty that’s been appearing more and more in our stores but is easily overlooked until it starts to develop some colouration
