    Living waters croydon?

    Well i was only in there a little while but saw no one, as i say they may have been out the back, but no one was to be seen. Its a shame to see it empty like that, as they are very knowledgeable and would be shame to see them go.

    I need new fish food

    what fish food have you been using. I feed mine tetra pro colour and tetra pro algae, also feed algae wafers and some frozen daphnia and bloodworm. none of that breaks up easy and my flow keeps most of the food rotating round the aquarium.
