Pond Fish & Plants

 

We pride ourselves on our stocks, much of which is over-wintered in the UK rather than being imported from sunnier climes and having to be cooled before stocking in retail vats in Spring.

 

Cheshire Aquatics stocks a range of hardy pond fish to suit every pocket.We obtain our over-wintered pond fish stocks in September and put them on sale usually in March meaning that they have had the chance to settle down before sale. We stock shubunkins, goldfish and ghost koi in various sizes from our UK suppliers.

Later in the season we begin to introduce our koi carp, sourced for colour and appearance from numerous places worldwide. Our selection of pond fish increases diversity over the season and often includes “native” British species such as tench, carp, minnows and even sticklebacks.

 

We hold DEFRA licenses for the holding and sale of grass carp, sturgeon and other non-indigenous freshwater pond fish species. As a hobbyist you do not need to hold a license for non-indigenous pond fish species such as the aforementioned unless you are intending to stock them into a system such as one with an outlet to a river or stream.

 

Pond fish are stocked at Cheshire Aquatics usually until mid-September. We can offer advice on how to feed your pond fish as their requirements will change as the seasons progress. We can offer advice on housing them too with a range of filters, pumps and liners/ponds in stock plus the ability to consult and supply on much larger projects. We have designed a number of systems over 200,000 litres volume either as natural or dedicated koi ponds.

 

We source a range of locally grown water lilies every year in a variety of “spreads” and flower colours. Marginal plants are also from the UK and our selection represents a good selection of what’s available for the natural pond. During the spring and summer our selection reflects what’s looking good at that particular time and the 1 litre pots mean that repotting isn’t necessary in the first year as they allow ample growth.
