Are there any good shops in London? only know one in Great Portland Street and one which is totally crap by Victoria Station.

Would appreciate any help, looking for central, but would appreciate any in London.

Many thanks

Thumbs up

The best shop in London has to be Wholesale Tropicals on the Bethnal Green road followed by Wildwoods in Enfield. Dunno why it's called Wholesale Tropicals as it's a retail shop??????? Have a look in Practical Fishkeeping magazine, both shops regularly win awards for best shops.

I live in bethnal green and go to wholesale aquatics as my LFS. They are generally friendly and can answer my questions. Best of all they are walking distance from me.
I have been to the fish shop on great Portland st and its expensive! they do have everything you could want though so if im in a pinch i will go there.
There is another in my neighborhood called J&L aquatics (or something like that) on old ford road and i wouldn't send my worst enemy to it.
