I recently spoke to Matt at Your Aquarium just before closing for 30 minutes to ask for help with ammonia spikes and the loss of fish in my aquarium. I was slightly out of the area served, but Matt was still happy to help. He went through everything step by step and worked out the cause for the ammonia spikes. He gave me the correct guidance and said to let him know in a week's time to see how the ammonia levels are and how the fish are doing. He was also happy to visit to look into it when they are closer to us on another job on the day if the situation isn't resolved. I was very impressed with Matt's knowledge, expertise, and willingness to help. He went above and beyond what I expected, and I am very grateful for his assistance. I would highly recommend Your Aquarium to anyone who is looking for aquarium advice or service. Here are some of the things that I liked about my experience: Matt was very knowledgeable about aquariums and fishkeeping. He was patient and took the time to answer all of my questions. He was willing to help me troubleshoot the problem with my aquarium. He was friendly and professional. Overall, I had a great experience with Your Aquarium. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for aquarium advice or service.

Truly delighted with the service we have received. Last year our family bought a house with a large aquarium left by the seller (agreed) and the maintenance quickly became a significant chore for us despite having kept fish before only in smaller aquariums. My spouse wanted to get rid of the tank it was becoming such a problem but I’m so pleased that we didn’t because it is enjoyed by our young daughter. After struggling for six months we called in reinforcements and I’m so glad we did. The aquarium and the fish now look a million dollars. For two out of practice former fish owners (definitely not experts) suddenly in charge of a surprisingly large tank twice the volume we were told by the old owner it turns out having some professional assistance was precisely what we needed to get us on the right path. Highly recommended.

My partner and I have both kept fish before but with work and other commitments our present tank had become an issue. Despite regular attempts at cleaning, the tank would begin to look dirty and the water cloudy within a few days of attending to it. We could not figure out why and almost gave up. My partner was reluctant to rehome the fish not least because our daughter who has complex needs is attached to one of the small catfish in the tank and suggested that we call in some expert help instead. The service we have received from Your Aquarium has been exceptional. Our fish tank was promptly and professionally cleaned and serviced for us and immediately looked better than ever, including when we took over caring for it from its previous owner. The following day it looked better still, crystal clear water like the fish were floating. We were informed in detail about how to keep it looking good and told to call, text or email if we had any questions going forward. We have not needed to but it is hugely reassuring to know that we can. Now two weeks later, the tank still looks brilliant and we have done a water change today as instructed. Once it needs any further attention, we will definitely be back in touch. I also want to extend my most sincere thanks to you on my behalf and on behalf of my partner and our daughter. My partner and I were so touched by how accepting you were of our daughter’s unique needs and how you made such an effort to help make her feel involved in what you were doing while you were here. It really brightened her day and she has since taken renewed interest in all of the fish in the tank. If I could give you more than five stars, I would. Best wishes, Michelle, Sharon and Rosie McKay-Pierce

Called for help with my little boy’s new fish tank yesterday. Thank you for generously and patiently putting my mind at ease. I’m extremely grateful for all of the wonderful advice that you gave me and I’m sure our fish will be too now that I know what I’m doing. 😅

Hyndburn, Lancashire

Hyndburn is a borough in Lancashire, England. The borough, which takes its name from the River Hyndburn, was formed in 1974 by the amalgamation of the Borough of Accrington, the Urban Districts of Church, Clayton-le-Moors, Great Harwood, Oswaldtwistle, and Rishton, plus part of the Burnley Rural District.

Hyndburn forms a large part of the so-called Accrington/Rossendale Built-Up Area, which covers the borough and aspects of the neighbouring borough of Rossendale. The Accrington/Rossendale Built-Up Area extends from Accrington to Rawtenstall and Bacup.

Fifteen years ago, the local council proposed changing the name of Hyndburn to Accrington & Districts to aid recognition of the borough by those unfamiliar with the area. Following a public consultation, the plans were stalled and, shortly after, shelved entirely.

Hyndburn is what’s known as polycentric and is located between the larger towns of Blackburn and Burnley. It’s linked to both areas by the M65 motorway and the East Lancashire railway line – not to be confused with the heritage East Lancashire Railway.

Aquascope, Great Harwood/Clayton-le-Moors

For many years, Hyndburn was home to one of the region’s largest and most popular local fish shops. Aquascope in Great Harwood supplied a huge selection of coldwater, tropical, and marine livestock. A large dry goods section and a separate showroom for tanks and cabinets completed Aquascope’s offering.

The business changed hands at least once or twice during its 50-year history. Its final owners specialised in discus, making Aquascope a go-to destination for discus lovers in Hyndburn, the wider North West, and from further afield. The store ultimately closed in 2014. Aquascope’s closure came after expansion plans that were featured on national television.

Aquascope starred in the hit Channel Four series, Bank of Dave. The Bank of Dave series followed Burnley-based businessman and Sabden local Dave Fishwick. Fishwick is the name behind Burnley Savings and Loans on Keirby Walk, Burnley. The finance and loan company is better known as the Bank of Dave or Bank on Dave. Aquascope featured on the show as its then-owner sought financing for various expansion plans.

After decades in Great Harwood, Hyndburn-based Aquascope ultimately moved 10 minutes up the road to what would become its final premises. The move involved a short hop from Quality House on Waverledge Street and Rushton Street in Great Harwood to Allied House on Burnley Road in Clayton-le-Moors, just on the outskirts of Accrington.

Quality House was formerly the home of Great Harwood’s Palace Cinema. During its history, the building also reportedly housed a skating rink, a snooker hall, and an amusement arcade before becoming Aquascope, according to various reports.

Meanwhile, and close to junction seven of the M65 motorway, Aquascope’s new Clayton-le-Moors location also became home to Coopers Critters. Coopers Critters provided educational animal encounters for nurseries, schools, birthday parties, and more. Both businesses have since shut their doors for the last time, with Coopers Critters closing two years after Aquascope in 2016.

The two businesses’ former home at Allied House on Burnley Road is now occupied by the gym, health club, and physical fitness centre, Fitness Hub. Elsewhere, Aquascope’s original home in Great Harwood on the site of the former Palace Cinema continues to play host to a variety of other local Hyndburn businesses.
