We do not supply Goldfish for use as prizes at Fetes, or Fairs.

Livestock at Grosvenor Tropicals

Naturally enough the heart of our business, what's the point off an aquarium without Fish? It is also our greatest asset, one which we have carefully nurtured for over four decades, and we are very proud of our reputation for the best livestock anywhere in the country.

All our fish are quarantined before being offered for sale. This may vary from only a few weeks for some species to many months for more delicate specimens, during which time they are continuously monitored for health and acclimatisation.   The results speak for themselves, happy and healthy fish, and satisfied customers.

Because we take the welfare of our livestock so seriously we do not sell Fish on-line or mail-order.  Where we do advertise particular specimens such as large Koi or Stingrays etc these are only for sale direct from our shop.

We are always happy to welcome children and young people to our shop, whether it be to select fish for their aquariums, or simply to look and enjoy, but if they wish to buy they must be accompanied by a responsible adult.  Similarly we expect adults to supervise their children at all times, no animal likes to be startled by children slapping on the glass or banging on the aquarium lids, so please remember at all times, look, but don't touch.!
