First you must decide from where to buy. There are many good aquatic/pet stores throughout Ireland .So it is important that wherever you shop can provide you with.

  1. Good selection
  2. Healthy fish
  3. Staff knowledge
  4. Good advise

Knowledge and good advise are the most important factors when deciding on where to shop. Some stores have the latest state of the art aquariums to display their fish which looks very impressive, but there staff knowledge and advice can leave lot to be desired. Looks can be deceiving, you will find that, some of the less impressive looking stores may have the best knowledge, which they have gained through years of experience. So take a bit of time to decide on which store has the best balance for you?


When buying fish, there are a few things to remember.
Let staff know a few basic facts about your aquarium.

How long it is established Temperature
If you have done a water test recently What type of fish you have (if any)
How many fish are in the tank What size the tank is
If you have lost any fish recently If your tank is been treated for any dicease or infection
If you have cleaned the filter recently When you last introduced fish

It is also a good idea to bring a sample of your aquarium water with you, as many stores will want to test the water to make sure it is free from pollutants and suitable for the fish you are interested in purchasing.
Ultimately It is important that you have a good understanding of how your aquarium works and what selection fish is best suited. so invest in a good aquarium book, check out the many good web sites on fish keeping and most of all ask plenty of questions at your aquatic/pet store. The more knowledge you have the easier your aquarium will be to keep.
