We are situated in Newtownabbey in the north of Belfast, only 10 minutes’ drive from the Sandyknowes roundabout off the M2. The store is based in Hillside NurseryCentre, which boasts a great coffee shop to help make a good day out even better!

The main centrepiece of the shop is a 5,000-litre display pond filtered by a Nexus system. Our shop systems have almost 200 tanks with Coldwater fancy goldfish, tropical and marine fish. For marines, we have three large coral trays heavily stocked with a wide range of hand-picked coral from all over the world. We also have display tanks for Discus and Lake Tanganyika Cichlids as well as a reef setup.

Outside, we have nine vats with various sizes of goldfish, high grade Koi, sturgeon, orfe and tench. All our Koi come from proven KHV and SVC-free sources and are hand-picked early each year to guarantee good quality. To support these, we have one of the largest watergardening sections in Northern Ireland, with a massive selection of pond plants in season.
We specialise in marine fish and corals, African Lake Cichlids, shrimp setups, "L-number" catfish and livebearer tropical fish. So whether you’re after a guppy, common goldfish or some nice SPS coral, we have it all.
We have all the major brands in store including Blagdon, JBL, Tetra, Interpet, Red Sea (Platinum Dealer), D-D, Fauna Marin to name but a few. If we don’t stock it, we will do our best to order it in for you.
Large displays of aquariums are on show in store and special orders arrive on a monthly basis. We stock all sizes of aquariums, from small starter tanks up to large marine systemised setups. We can also offer a home delivery option and 0% finance is also available.
All of our staff are keen fishkeepers and have a wealth of knowledge on all aspects of aquatics, so they are always happy to provide all the friendly, expert advice you need. So if you have been keeping fish for years or brand new to the hobby, we have the largest selection in Northern Ireland and are well worth a visit. We look forward to seeing you soon!
