 Just look at that little face... No wonder then, that so many fishkeepers find these little puffers so hard to resist.

A new shop, which the owners believe is the largest marine specialist shop in the east of England, has opened in Essex.

With over 20,000 litres of saltwater, Marine Reef's new establishment boasts a 4000 litre shark and ray tank and fully quarantined fish. There is 25.5 metres of fish tanks to view,  19.2 metres of coral bays and 50 square metres of dry goods and equipment.

Marine Reef has been trading now for two years and has always specialised in marine fish. The new shop runs alongside Essex equestrian supplies and the aptly named Seahorse cafe, and offers customers a great place to enjoy some beautiful marine fish — and a nice slice of cake and a cup of tea.

Marine Reef is at Parsons Hill, Great Bromley, Essex CO7 7JA.
