Also in Edinburgh, the Aquatic Centre (Comely Green Place), only been a few times and gets mixed reviews, also Waterwonders (Gorgie Road) which I avoid due to a bad experience but might be OK now.

There's Dobbies just south of Edinburgh, at times decent fish stock but naff for inverts and knowledge of staff questionable. The two shops you've mentioned seem to be more highly rated in general.

afaik thats it

Remember P.K Pets in Whitburn also, really good people. They were moving shop in August to bigger premises round the corner, not sure if it happened. Give them a phone, 01501 742444.

Hi I travel around UDA, Glasgow and Edinburgh shops, even bought some stuff in Dobbies once . Years ago I used to go to a shop in Kirkcaldy but it appears to be closed down now, can't remember the street.

You were looking for Clowns, I could have helped out a few months ago but mine are all gone apart from the parents of the spawned ones. Had them for 7 years now and they breed regularly for about 5 months every year. I have one left of the orginal lot that is about 2 years old now butis getting terrorised by a blue stripe clown!! If you have a large tank I can may be help you out with some larger specimens, send a PM me. George.
