UK Residents' Catalogues

Note: As URL's (web site addresses) change all the time, there are at least nine sites below that no longer work. If you know where a particular site has moved, please let me know.


Freshwater Aquarium Google Group - not a regular newsgroup but since some of those below were taken over by mentally ill people, this is where you want to go for a pseudo-newsgroup now.



A free catalog from That Pet Place can be obtained by calling 1-888-THATPET. I used to get most of my dry goods from them due to the excellent prices.

Petsolutions recently sent me a catalog. They have many aquarium supplies. Their number is 1-800-737-3868 if you would like a catalog.

UK Residents' Catalogues

Since I live in the United States, all of the books, catalogs, and sites are those available here. In 1999, I picked up a copy of the aquarium magazine from the United Kingdom called Practical Fishkeeping. I must say I was VERY impressed. There were half a dozen articles on topics that I have been waiting to find information on and never can, like general breeding tips, corydoras catfish, pond topics, etc. It is an excellent magazine. For those of you in the UK who would like to contact them, you can ring them at 01858 435338. Some of the places in the UK that sell aquarium and pond related supplies and will provide free catalogues are listed below from the issue of this magazine that I bought.
