Good place to buy fish in London?

Only 2 weeks through my fishless cycle, so not ready to think about stocking my tank yet.

Any recommendations for a good place near to North London? I am now way of buying from the place where we got all our kit, as the guy who runs it is of the 'just wait a few days and chuck your fish in' school of thought. So I am hesitant to believe anything else he says.....

TIA smile

What type of fish are you looking for? Have a look at breeders on facebook that's where I got one of my bettas from. Also there's an online shop called aquatics to your door you could have a look on there?

Maidenhead aquatics, which is in the back of a garden centre in Enfield.
5 mins walk from Crews Hill station.
They have a very large range of fish and give excellent advice. Every time I go an assistant is happy to spend a lot of time talking through what I need and why. They take fish keeping and welfare very seriously. If you take a sample of your water they will test it for you.
Good luck! Stocking the aquarium is the good bit after all that time waiting for the aquarium to be ready!

Thanks! Will look at Maidenhead. Also the online one.
