At Cheshire Aquatics we
pride ourselves on the selection of tropical marine invertebrates.
visit wholesalers weekly and hand-pick livestock ensuring
the best possible quality and the best price possible.
coral specimen is different, even if cultured - and
so we choose the best those specimens that offer something
more for our customers, perhaps some interesting encrusting
life or a special growth form of a particular species.
We seek them out when available!
Animals like anemones,
particularly those that host anemonefish, are hugely
varied in colour and also condition and using our experience
we can check that the specimens that we stock are the
best available. And if the wholesalers stock is not
up to standard then it stays there.
We also regularly import certain species of invertebrate
including several cultured species of stony coral (Acropora,
Montipora, Porites, Merulina, Hydnaphora, Echinopora,
Pocillopora, Seriatopora and many more). We will also
occasionally source some interesting soft coral specimens
from the areas in which they are cultured.
The majority of our “clean up crew” stock is also derived from
non-wholesaler stocks resulting in competitive prices on these essential animals.
Snails, dwarf hermit crabs, brittle starfish, sand-shifting herbivorous conches
are almost always in stock meaning that you can keep detritus and / or algae
to a minimum in your aquarium. We also have a dedicated anemone aquarium, home
to some of the most useful and hardy of the common host anemone species.
Any aquarist wanting to stock their aquarium with tropical marine invertebrates
wants to source the best possible specimens of the best possible species.
We are always reluctant to stock corals or other inverts that might be difficult
for the majority of aquarists to keep. We usually try to give aquarists the
benefit of our experience with invertebrates - the culmination of many
years experience in the trade. Staff members regularly contribute to dedicated
marine aquarium magazines and have even had books published on the subject.
Whatever the tropical marine invertebrate you need, hard coral - including
SPS, soft coral, colonial polyp, clean up crew, shrimp, crab or something
then you might find it here.
