In addition to cleaning and maintaining aquariums, we also source and supply livestock for clients and their fish tanks.

In order to do so, Your Aquarium works closely with a number of fantastic importers, wholesalers, professional breeders, and retailers. We’ve also built strong relationships with some exceptional hobbyist breeders, both in the UK and overseas.

As a result, we can track down most fish species, including unusual, rare, and seldom seen varieties. At the same time, we remain wholly committed to the ethical sourcing and supply of livestock.

With that, we will never source or supply wild-caught examples of species deemed to be threatened in their natural habitats. As a rule, we also refrain from sourcing or supplying so-called ‘tank busters’ like alligator gar and red-tailed catfish.

Where possible, we always source captive-bred fish rather than wild-caught specimens. In the case of wild-caught fish, every effort is made to ensure that they’re responsibly collected.

On a day-to-day basis, we have access to a fantastic selection of best-selling and more unusual tropical fish species, over 250 of which are listed below. We’re confident that these are among the healthiest, highest-quality, and best-quarantined examples in the country.

Livestock Categories

Listed below are tropical freshwater species only. Please contact us directly to enquire about marine fish, fancy goldfish, and other aquatic livestock. We’ve divided everything into around a dozen main categories. African cichlids contains both lake- and river-dwelling species, so Malawis and Tanganyikas plus jewel cichlids, kribs, and so on. For anything seemingly not categorised, check the oddball & miscellaneous list. This list includes, for example, eels, gobies, killifish, ricefish, puffers, and any other non-betta, non-gourami labyrinth fish.

Availability status is just a guide. This status isn’t live but was correct at the last check. There’s no guarantee that previously available fish remain as such. Meanwhile, previously unavailable varieties may now be obtainable, so it’s always a good idea to send us a message about any fish that you’re interested in.

These fish are offered solely to Your Aquarium clients and cannot be ordered for courier delivery or collection by non-clients. All fish are available exclusively hand-delivered in Lancashire, westernmost Yorkshire, and parts of Greater Manchester where our aquarium maintenance service is already available.
