Only the best suppliers

We have long standing relationships with many different types of companies around the world. We ensure that our suppliers are the best in the business and we receive unique support from them in honour of our commitment to quality and service. Nothing should be too much trouble for you and we expect the same from our suppliers, who constantly surprise, nothing seems too much trouble to help us help you

Eco-friendly materials

At Shirley Aquatics, we have made a commitment to ourselves and our customer to use as many eco-friendly and recyclable materials as possible to help preserve our sea life.

Like many companies we are looking for ways to reduce the use of plastics and support suppliers and products that aim to do the same. There are too many to name here, but one example is Dr David Pool’s FishScience products. He has taken a stance on the ingredients used in his FishScience foods, the main ingredient is insect meal, which, unlike fish meal is completely sustainable and has little impact on the environment. Plus eating insects is what a lot of fish do best so its second nature to them! We love it and your fish will love it!

Knowledgeable and friendly

We live in wonderful times, information is coming at us from all directions, unfortunately the wealth of information available for fish keeping especially can be confusing, contradictory and overwhelming. We make sure that we offer balanced opinions and advice that is based in both fact and experience. We welcome new ideas but equally want to make sure they stand up against the old ones!

We make sure we include as much information as possible on each and every product to make it easier for you to decide what’s best for your fish, reptile or invertebrate. But, there is always more to learn, if you would like to know more about any product or even look at an alternative please feel free to get in touch…we won’t bite!

Our guarantee

We aim to provide extensive product availability and help you through each aspect of your new or existing hobby. With decades of experience in aquatic and reptile keeping our pledge is to provide you with a professional and thorough service tailored to your needs. No one’s perfect but if we haven’t got it we will get it. If we don’t know it, we will find out and go the extra mile to ensure your happy with the service you get from us.
