Rated the best aquatics store in Rotherham

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our customers say:

The best tropical fish shop we’ve ever been to! We will never shop anywhere else. Sustainable Aquatics are very reasonable in terms of prices and they have a huge range of fish, plants, tanks, decor and other useful items for your tank. The shop is clean and very spaced out and the guys are very knowledgeable and will always go above and beyond to help you. You get a nice welcoming vibe as soon as you enter the shop and we always come away extremely satisfied. You will not be disappointed!

“Best Tropical Store”

Absolute amazing place me and my girlfriend come regularly, they are always happy to help you and nothing is ever too much trouble for them. They have the best choice of fish and other things for you tank like air stones and food. And if you need to know anything about fish they will give you lots of useful information about them this is the best aquatics store around would highly recommend you will not be disappointed.

“Best choice of fish”

I’ve been a customer for a while now, and I have been really impressed with the dedication and expertise of the business. They made the process of setting my first tank enjoyable and relatively simple (with really good advice on how to set up and stock the tank, at affordable prices). But even better, they were always willing to give me advice and support if I needed it. They’re passionate about supporting you in the hobby, and about the welfare of their livestock. Can’t recommend them enough!
