Latest update, as of May 2020: We continue to be open, following our normal opening hours, and operating a one in/one out policy on customers – this is because we are a very small shop, with not much room for bodies inside! Thank you to all our customers for following our new ‘social distancing’ rules – we don’t like them much either, but needs must. We absolutely appreciate how important it is to be able to continue supplying essentials to keep your fishy friends alive during these trying times.
Selling fish: We have thought long and hard about this, as it is clearly not a life essential to be able to buy new fish. We are allowed to, but we would like to ask anyone who feels they need new fish during this period to think about it and determine if it is really worth a trip out. All current guidance dictates that trips out should only be made for essentials – new fish, unlike food, meds and filtration, aren’t essentials.
Having said that, we will still catch and bag up fishies for you to pick up on your way back from the supermarket if you phone us beforehand, but really can’t, in all good conscience, encourage general browsing at this current time. Take care of yourselves and the health and well-being of your families: we’ll still be here when this crisis period is just an unpleasant memory.
Please note also that some of our stock is in short supply at present. This is because our suppliers are struggling to get hold of several species of tropical fish due to current import restrictions. We have also had to increase the prices of some of our stock, as imports now have an additional surcharge on them, meaning we are having to pay a significant amount more for them. Please be patient with us: when we manage to buy things at a discount, we do also pass that on to our customers.
Again, many thanks for your continued support, and look after yourselves.
