Question Cheap supplies in the UK!

Hi everyone,

I live in England and need a store (preferably online) that sells cheap fish supplies (e.g live plants, bog wood etc.) because I would like to re-furnish my betta's 10 gallon home. I'm only 12 so I'm on a budget, so the cheaper the better! I'm thinking of buying either silk plants or live plants, some bogwood and some black gravel. Possibly another type of frozen live food (I already have bloodworms).

Thanks in advance!

Have you tried Tyne Valley Aquatics? I've heard they're really good.

Didn't you ask about online retailers?

www.seapets.co.uk and www.aquatics-online.co.uk are great for aquarium supplies! Although if you're looking for simple tank furnishings wouldn't it be better to go to an actual shop? There must be a Pets at Home near you.. what area do you live in?

@Matilda Unfortunately that website doesn't sell the things I require but thanks anyway. :)

@ollief9 My nearest pet store is fairly far away and expensive. Also, they don't label their aquatic plants very well! The nearest Pets at Home is even further away. The two websites seem very good (I've actually bought from seapets before!). Thanks for the suggestions. :)

That sucks :( Where I live there are hardly any decent fish stores as well.. one is fairly good but very expensive! Are there any garden centers near you? They tend to have a small aquatic section.
If you are in the Gloucester area I recommend Aquajardin, they have an extensive range of fish and beautiful display tanks! You can also order lots of things from their website.

The only fairly decent (but expensive!) fish store near me is actually part of a garden center. That website has a great selection; thanks. :) I've found a great online shop for supplies: Watermarque, For Specialist Aquatics, Reptiles and Pets Their plants are super cheap and great size/quality (I bought an anubias off them a while ago).

I would take a look at the Maiden head aquatic stores, check out their site you may just find they have a store near you. Their stores are everywhere.
