These countries include:

  • Costa Rica – there are 14 major river systems originating in Costa Rica. Lake Nicaragua is a lake from which many ‘centrals’ originate, and is the largest lake in Central America. Of the 14 species currently found in the lake,

Postage and packaging.

We have been asked about our postage time when ordering on our website

If you order from our website we have a flat rate postage of £3.95.
However we do not actually deliver items ourselves. We post them through Royal Mail.

Usually we post orders out either the same day, or the next day ( this excludes weekends and bank holidays ) we find that postage takes 2 to 4 working days to get to you.

Never use fresh tap water.

Never use fresh tap water.
Always leave tap water standing for at least 24 hours with a tap safe treatment ( dechlorinator ) before putting it in to your tank.
Chlorine and chloramine that is in our tap water is bad for your fish and for your biological filter.

If you do not use tap safe ( dechlorinators ) then leave the tap water to stand for at three days before using it.

what our customers say...

By far the BEST aquatics around. Great choice of
tanks, fish and accessories, also great knowledgeable
staff, love this place

An amazing place to visit. The fish where lovely
and a very wide variety, the staff where friendly
and very helpful. I would recommend sedgley road
aquarium to anyone!!

This is a very well presented store, a lot bigger than it looks on the outside and very reasonably priced!! The fish are also in the best condition I’ve seen from any aquatics store in the area.

Brilliant staff with expert advice. Its a great local business and I have recommended sedgley road aquarium to all my friends and family.

My favourite fish shop EVER! They stock excellent
quality fish as well as tank plants, great tanks, tank
accessories, fish food, and whatever else you could
possibly need for your aquarium.
