Shelldwellers anyone?> #1
Tank cycled n set off to get the fish from the lfs only to find only on multi left. No more coming for a month or two so got my julie (who is settling beatifully at the mo!)but no multies.

Tried all the shops i know locally so any ideas on my best port of call for them? Dont think drags got any more, so either gonna have to go nearer to the london end of beds and herts but failing that any advice on the best and most realiable mail order route to go?

Re: Shelldwellers anyone?> #3
the way your tank is going i would stick with the julie till your filter mechures a bit and wait for them to get more shellys in. will give you filter time to settle

Re: Shelldwellers anyone?> #5
i like the koi place, not so keen on deepdale, there is chiltern aquatics, (not so keen on them anymore either)
then this way you got the dreaded P@h although the local to me is not bad. then you got their aquatic center at hemel, and a bit further on you got a wow. (that was a bit cruddy the fist time i went for a look, but will go again before i make up my mind, there's a couple of places in leighton buzzard. one at a gc and one in the town more of a pet shop i think (never visited those, still on the list) there are a couple of places in luton, one kind of real old school but quite helpfull, weird floral arangments in the tanks, but all seems really good in there.
dont know if that helps or not.
and i spose i gotta say. these are just my personal oppinions on places.
