The Fish Shop Directory

Hi Guys

We have some great aquarium shops throughout the country. I thought it would be a good idea to list as many as possible in order to let people know about them. I asked the members of Lothian Fishkeepers Facebook group for suggestions and based on the feedback, I contacted the following stores and invited them to be listed in our 'Directory of Scottish Aquatics Shops'.

Our directory is by no means complete. There is no rating applied to any shops included and all shops have been suggested by members of our community. The aim is to offer our readers a workable list of  places to visit.

If you have any suggestions for the directory please email
