World of Water Cardiff is closed until further notice after a major fire destroyed the adjoining Blooms Garden Centre on November 20.

Sadly, most of the garden centre was destroyed. However, the World of Water buildings survived with no internal damage although there was a loss of power to fish systems.

The dedicated staff had no option but to tirelessly work to transfer the fish stocks to other World of Water centres where they have been settling in well.

Rob the manager at Swindon reported: "Although it has not been without its challenges we have coped well with the unexpected arrival of Cardiff tropical fish. With constant monitoring of water quality and fish health the fish are now all settling well after their dramatic arrival."

World of Water hopes to have the Cardiff store open again very soon, however at this stage it is unable to give any further details.
