New aquatic shop opens in Dorset


New aquatic shop opens in Dorset

FishCove Aquatics opened for business in December 2015, located in the award winning Oaks Garden Centre in Wimborne, Dorset.

The store is owned and managed by fishkeeping enthusiasts, who say their aim is to support and fulfil the needs for other like-minded enthusiasts, as well as guide new fishkeepers into the hobby.

Co-owner Duncan Jones says: "We only provide and stock items that we have tried and tested so you can have complete confidence that everything we offer does exactly what it claims to. What’s more, we offer a great selection of tropical and coldwater fish as well as tropical plants for your aquarium. This ever expanding range has some of the usual suspects that you’d expect to see but also some that may surprise you.


"Whilst exploring the shop you will find a number of aquariums that we have set up to give you some inspiration for your own aquarium whether at home or in the office. Having pride and confidence in every product we stock is important to us which is why we use them in our store (and personally) and we love giving you an opportunity to see some of our products working in the aquarium before you take them home.

"FishCove Aquatics will be a specialist in Betta and shrimp. We have just set up our new Betta display system — our shrimp display system will be arriving at the end of March."


Opening hours are 9.30am-5pm Tues-Fri; 9.00am-5pm on Saturday and 10am-4pm on Sunday.

FishCove Aquatics is located at The Oaks Garden Centre, Queen Anne Drive, Wimborne, Dorset BH21 3BA. Tel. 01202 883065.
