    Mainly we use Aquajardine. Dare I say World of Water has had too many aptaisia in their tanks for our liking. Sometimes go down to one near Avonmouth and there's a good one in Cheltenham (can't remember name off hand), but that one is rather expensive.

    Do you use any in Glos?

    Occasionally pop into aquajardine but dont really rate it. I've had to follow people out the shop to correct the bad advice they have been given in the past. When bluetangmarine was operating as a retail shop I spent a lot of time their. The one in Cheltenham is real reefs and is very good and knowledgeable is the other one you have visited Southwestmarines it's one of the best shops around.

    Aw, yes Ross at bluetangmarine........we spent many many times in his set-up. Contacted him recently and didn't realise he wasn't operating as a retail shop any more. Shame. We loved chatting with him and seeing his private tank. Were you around when his clowns had babies? We gave him our Red Sea cube tank for the babies when we upgraded to the 350!

    Yep. Reel Reefs that's the one. and Yes, Southwestmarines.

    Now that we're building up our stock, we'll have to visit the others again.

    Yes the kids loved those babies. Often had trouble getting them out the shop lol. Anything particular you want give Southwestmarines a shout and if they cant get it not many places can.
