Good Aquarium shop recommendation needed

Hi all,

We recently bought a tropical aquarium from Qualipet Dietlikon.Followed all the instructions for setting it up, had the water tested after a fortnight as instructed, bought some neon tetras and on their recommendation three Cory fish. Despite doing everything by the book we discovered our first dead fish after four days and found we had white spot on the Neons.

Visited the shop and was sold some medicine to treat this condition. Been reading up alot and I think we need a specialist aquarium shop really. Think we will lose all the neons as we have lost two more today. We need to get past this as my son is already really disheartened by all this,have invested a fair bit of money in the tank and think it will be a nice hobby when we get everything sorted.

Can anyone recommend a good aquarium shop in Zurich please? Ideally with someone who knows their fish and can give us some good advice.

Thanks in advance!

Darcy

Try Aquarium Seerose.

I've heard mixed reviews, but have always experienced good service there.

Re: Good Aquarium shop recommendation needed

Hi GlowJupiter,
Thanks, I will have a look, just want to avoid Qualipet at any cost tbh. They are ok for equipment but I don't think they know what they are doing with the fish really. I want an honest person who is really into the aquarium hobby and not just selling them for the sake of it. Been told to avoid places that do not have individual filters for each tank.

We will see how it goes!

Darcy

Re: Good Aquarium shop recommendation needed

When we kept tropical fish a long time ago, we had a small independent tank where newly purchased fish spent enough time in quarantine, before being introduced to the main tank. Maybe you should buy a book on keeping tropical fish and learn their diseases? As far as I know all the fish sold are imported from the wild, and have a good chance of being diseased.
