A brief history

We first opened in 1992 and our aquatic section has undergone many improvements during the last 22 years, and now forms a major part of our retailing operation.

Although sited within a pet superstore. The 'Coral Cave' has always maintained an individual trading style, in line with other aquatic only' outlets.

We are very proud of our local reputation for giving excellent service and advice.

We take great pleasure in seeing some of our regular customers progress through the many aspects of fish keeping and would like to think that we have contributed in making their lives a little easier.

We strongly believe that the future of fish keeping rests heavily on the shoulders of the independent aquatic retailer, and can assure all of our customers that we will endeavour to play our part.

Our aquatic section was completely rebuilt in 2011 and we take great pride in keeping it looking like the day it was first opened.
