Location: Based in Huntingdon, Cambs - we are not far from the A1 and A14. See our contact page for full details of our location.
Please Note: Saturday's can get very busy and the time our staff have to offer you may be less than weekdays. There may be a wait involved to use our aquascaping sandpit service. If you require a full set-up and/or scaping service we recommend calling us in advance to make a morning appointment. Visiting us on a weekday is usually quieter and staff will have more time to dedicate to you.

"We like to do things differently, and we like to do things that make sense. Many shops hold their aquatic plants in holding tanks full of water. This may seem the obvious way to hold plants, however, this is not how they are produced. Therefore, what we like to do is hold our plants emersed. What’s required is a humid environment, nutrient dosing at the roots & light. As the plants are out of water, there is no worry of algae. And this opens up a whole new way of keeping plants. The end result is simply brilliant! The quality is right up there."
Aquarium Plant Collections (online exclusive)
We have a wide range of Plant Collections offering great value for money throughout. They are particularly good for those who are unsure as to how many plants they will need to fill their tank or which plants to go for. The 'Jungle Plant Collections' are designed for different sized aquariums, containing only easy care plants, and therefore a good starting point if you are new to planted aquariums. All our plant collections are well thought out and offer a variety of plants.
You can also purchase plants individually to make up your own collection. We also offer a variety of plants growing on wood, rock, coconut and bamboo sticks.
Tissue Culture Plants
The future of aquarium plants lies with tissue cultured plants (also known as In Vitro plants). These plants are produced in a lab under sterile conditions. They are free from algae, snails, pests and disease. Great for taking your aquascaping one step further with super healthy plants. There are many varieties not found in our regular potted range. They also ship really well, and when you get them you don't have to plant them straight away. Keep the lid sealed and they will last 1-2 weeks in a cool place until your ready for planting.
Aquarium Plant Food
Our aquarium plant food is supplied by The Nutrient Company, offering excellent quality and great value nutrients for your plants compared to other brands. If you have a fully planted aquarium, we advise using both TNC Complete and TNC Carbon for healthy plant growth. The bigger the bottle, the better the value!
For superb plant growth we stock a range of CO2 Equipment. CO2 is the backbone to aquatic plant growth which can be limited in an enclosed aquarium environment. It is therefore advisable to supplement CO2 in the aquarium to support healthy plant growth. You will find all our CO2 equipment very well priced, making it more affordable for everybody. For more information on how to set up a CO2 system for your aquarium, see here.
