Video of my shop

Post  Pterophyllum on Sun 11 Aug 2013, 23:29

For those who haven't visited and wonder what my shop's like, thanks to my 14 year old son who filmed and edited a short promotional video, you can now get a flavour of it on You Tube :-


As a bonus, you'll see a few of my angels, hope you enjoy.

Thats a great video rob & i take my hat off to your son who like you seems to know how to handle a camera & make great use of it.
The shop was realy nice to see as it is a great example of a well established & thought about aquatics centre & from the look of it a well maintaind one too.
I must ask though what Co2 systems do you use as those plants all look stunning.Can you recomend a system for a 400 litre tank & at what sort of price would it be?
As always it was a pleasure to see those angels of yours.

As a proud parent, I have to say that he seems to have a natural talent when it comes to videoing.
In my case, you'll notice I don't tend to post videos, and the reason for that is that I'm pretty useless when it comes to taking them, I can't handle the focus, zoom & keeping the camera steady all at the same time!

I must ask though what Co2 systems do you use as those plants all look stunning.Can you recomend a system for a 400 litre tank & at what sort of price would it be?
We were one of the first shops in the UK to do CO2 & have always dealt with Dennerle. They're high quality & easy to adjust & control. There are certainly cheaper systems on the market, but in terms of quality I think Dennerle are hard to beat.

For a 400 litre tank, I'd suggest the Space 600 system which we currently have on offer at £299.00 (although, as usual, I'll do a bit of extra discount for forum members!) This is a 2 kg refillable cylinder with regulator with built in shut off valve, in tank CO2 test, diffuser, CO2 proof airline and dennerle fertiliser.

For details of other sets see here http://www.the-aquatic-habitat.co.uk/news/news.htm and click on the special offers button on the left hand side.

Fantastic video Rob! Love the display tanks, especially the marine! The water feature display is also fantastic, wish we had the space to do this, it really helps people visualise the effect.

Hi C8LED,
Yes, I will be there on the 1st.
Is there anything in particular that you're after? I'm expecting that I'll be taking in some youngsters & some adult fish in in the next few days, and if necessary I can put suitable fish by for you.

Rob

I'll see what I can bare to part with, but I should have a few blue marbles, certainly some young paraiba, & some young adult pinoys, probably won't have any blue ghosts, but if I do it will only be one or two.

Hi Danny,
Took 75 fish into the shop today....

25 adults/young adults including, smokey/chocolate pinoys, smokey/chocolate pinoy paraibas, blue smokey/choclates, plus koi, paraiba koi, smokey blushing veils & a few more besides.
youngsters I took 25 mixed koi/sunsets and 25 assorted blues which include blue smokeys, leopards, chocolates, zebras & marbles (I'm particularly proud of these as most of them have nice wide fins, and the colour, well, you'll see when you visit!)

Hi Danny,
It was nice to meet you on Sunday, sorry it was all a bit hectic. I hope the fish you took settled in well. I'm looking forward to photos of them in their new home Smile

Still finding my way around the forum with being new here and I got to say I'm glad I came across your video. I was having a stressed out day and now, after watching the video, I'm all relaxed and chilled out lol

It's a lovely looking shop you have and your son has made a great job of the video Very Happy

I fully agree with you, it is a lovely looking shop. Rob's son has made a very good job of the video. The only problem is that the shop it is not in Yorkshire. Alas its to far for a quick call, but I did manage to give Rob a surprise visit the other year and I was very glad I called in. Only wished I lived nearer. I have promised Rob another visit but this time I'll ring him first.
Promise Rob
