In this day and age.time is of essence. Customers don't want a complicated technical system they don't understand,Don't get me wrong if that's what your looking for we can produce. The majority of people want to sit back and admire the beautiful fish and corals in the aquarium.The biological cycle is fish produce waste which is highly toxic. like the gold fish in the bowl.neglect it, it smells and goes cloudy.that's ammonia.The filtration system contains thousands of bacteria which break down the ammonia to nitrite still very toxic. This bacteria produces nitrate. not toxic to fish but bad for corals.In the average aquarium with eternal filters, water changes are necessary to remove the nitrate.that's if the new water has less nitrate than your taking out.

Tap water is totally unacceptable. it contains water with higher pollution levels than the fish can cope with.Reverse osmosis water is essential. All our systems are filled with RO water from setting up.The system comprises a trickle tower for removal of ammonia and nitrite.A protein skimmer to remove waste products in the aquarium .A deep bed sand filter which contains live sand and calurpa. The sea weed roots in the sand like a plant and absorbs Nitrates through the roots.The sump becomes an eco system on its own with tiny Star fish,crabs.copeds etc eating excess food and finally pumped back into the tank through a UV steriliser.this removes algea from the water giving crystal clear water and kills parasites.The sump is lit 24/7 to produce maximum growth of the sea weed. We are the only company that produce this system. based on our secess in breed sharks over the past ten years.

Our cabinets are not flat pack they are hand built from real wood and delivered ready assembled in pine/Oak or gloss finish.Our installation leaves the aquarium running with salt water ready for maturing approx four weeks. then add fish and corals.

No water changes necessary. water testing once a week essential and adjust ment of water quality ie PH and additives.Fish and corals prefer mature water.Reduction of water, low voltage LED lights and the ultimate aquarium.Our fish and corals are all net caught and cultured corals to combine the perfect natural system.Coming into Heathrow weekly only available to our customers.We have an import license issued by defra and a pet shop license.Come and see for your self.by apoointment only we are not open to the public.



Our design and built contract removes all the stress from the installation. from a basic profile we design and build the aquarium within a specified budget. You get the best value for money. We offer maintenance contracts. provide an out of hours service for any emergency and supply fish and corals net caught or cultured.

We offer an upgrade service to bring the aquarium up to the latest standards with new lighting. skimmers and filters.

We install aquariums in restaurants and hotels for live edible fish supplied by us on display for the customer choice. lobster tanks and sea food displays.

Looking for the whow factor then consider  our ultimate aquarium which provides every thing you need fully automated with dusk and dawn lighting. lightening and high quality products.

I'm a beginner. What should I do?

There is a great deal of conflict in regard to the keeping of Marine Fish. There are many Experts who claim to know it all. The object of keeping Marine fish/Corals and inverts is to put a piece of the reef in your home. These are very delicate creatures who live in a vast ocean where changes in water quality and parameters are minimal. We are still learning every day about these fascinating fish.

There are specific parameters which have to be complied with to have any success in keeping marine fish.

Salinity. This is the level of salt in the water depending on where the fish originate the levels are 1.023 - 1.025. red sea fish live in a higher salt level of 1.035. i do not believe that these species should be acclimatized to a lower salt level.

PH This is the hardness of the water. 7 is neutral below 7 is acidic and above 7 is alkaline. sea water needs to be between 8.1 -8.3 the higher level appropriate.

temperature 26-28c The aquarium will warm to room temperature. therefore the cooler the room the easier to control temperature. if this is not stable a chiller will be required. Corals die over 28c.

Marine fish are prone to various diseases including white spot. This is caused by stress. Being moved. Incorrect water quality wrong temp or salt levels. It will spread through out your stock killing every thing.

Begin by reading through the various sections on this web site. Whether or not it follows the guidelines set by so called experts. this is based on 40 years of research. Marine fish are easy to keep and I have kept many species for 15 years plus.

These are basic rules with the intension of creating a natural environment suitable for the long term survival of your fish.

The dangers of syphoning water by sucking it down the tube have long been identified as a means of introducing infection and parasites into the human body. These same principals apply to water tipped down the drain from water changes. From an environmental perspective it should be banned.

Follow the guideline and enjoy your aquarium.


The only way to successfully keep  Marine fish is to buy Net caught fish. Cyanide caught fish survive only months already poisoned by the cyanide.Many shops don't care because they know you will be back to buy more. People give up because they are to hard to keep. Marine fish can live over 20 years if they are caught and cared for properly.

Our partnership with our supplier guarantees quality fish in a wide range of sizes and species. We don't have the facility to keep the fish you can collect or we deliver the minium of one box. with weekly shipments.

There are people on the internet who object very strongly with what we do. It interferes in the profits of cyanide caught fish which costs pennies.

People like Peter Norman of Woking who has engaged in various protests against net caught fish. look at the videos on our fish farm website at www.mytchettfishfarm.com

Take a look at our new web site for Sea Food, displays and commercial projects.

People in the trade will tell you that blast fishing and cyanide fishing are a thing of the past. Its now used in over 30 countries around the world. Many of the fish sold in the uk are caught with cyanide. Its easy,just squirt a bit of cyanide into a hole and the fish either dies or is stunned never the less survival is likely to be around 12 months.

Many hobbist give up because they claim to be too hard to keep. Not true. Many fish live to 25 plus in captivity.

Edible fish like grouper are caught with cyanide. The problem is that stocks of cod are diminishing rapidly and in 20 years will be gone unless action is taken now.


Research confirms  that in 20 years fish stocks around the world will be depleted to a point where there will be very little left to catch.

Fish farming is the future source of food and already salmon and trout farms produce huge stocks allowing wild fish to recover. It takes three years from the egg to a full grown salmon and are bred disease free

Many marine aquarium fish are now bred in captivity and corals farmed to reduce the devastation caused by cyanide and blast fishing on the reefs. Fishermen now have to travel for five to seven days to find fish to collect. the local reefs have been destroyed.

We are setting up our own fish farm. Breeding and growing on Edible sea fish in our new marine centre. Reducing the pressure on already  damaged reefs. We have already successfully bred three species of sharks, We will continue our program sending sharks back to the wild.

People are shocked when we tell them no water changes but this is a system that's been around for some years. algae scrubber are very simple means of removing nitrates and phosphates and we include them in our new system. Of course its not popular in the trade. they lose sales in RO water and salt.

Our systems are designed to replicate the reefs and provide the ultimate aquarium a stunning moving picture. No water changes. stable systems guaranteed  for successful fish keeping.

The difference between tropical fish and marine fish is salt water. Some fish such as Salmon have evolved over hundreds of years to move freely from one to the other. The majority of fresh water fish cant live in the sea and the revere. In reality therefore aquariums built and designed for fresh water fish cant maintain salt water fish in the same system. Many people claim they are too hard to keep they are not. provided they have the appropriate filtration.

The sea is vast and the parameters vary small. there are fluctuations in temperature dependant on the current flow. but marine fish can adapt easily to this in thier natural environment.

Lets talk about calculations and constructive planning. Who makes these rules is uncertain 2 inches of fish per gallon of water? this is at thier adult size.  I prefer 1 inch per gallon of water. therefore a 100 gallon aquarium will sustain 100 inches of fish at adult size.

This is of course based on the type of filtration system. A cannister filter when fully matured and at its maximum could as an example maintain 50 inches of fish. it will never be able to cope with any more.

Our system has an infinite loading. its open to oxygen for bacterial growth. the approbate flow rate for skimmer and trickle tower. contains the correct media. requires minimum maintenance. No water changes. The system replicate the ocean and the fish thrive.

The investment is greater but having to constantly replace dead fish balances this out.

The animal welfare act specifies that all animals including fish must be maintained in thier natural environment. This includes all the parameters to keep fish in the correct environment. Salt levels/ph/ temperature/ammonia-nitrite and nitrate. Where stability is a problem the act is breached and an offence has been committed.

We are the only company offering this system. No water changes. higher stocking levels,healthy fish. If your looking for quotations from other companies bear in mind. we don't use lamaite or chip board. don't offer flat pack. only solid wood hand built systems made in the UK. You get what you pay for. There are companies who offer cheaper prices using second hand and reclaimed glass which are inferior our glass comes from pilkiinton.

So what is it all about. marine fish travel thousands of miles to get to your home. To die in a totally unsuitable environment. its the hobbist responsibility to reduce the deaths to a minimum.

Marine fish keeping can not be achieved on the cheap.

We offer free advise on how to maintain these levels by contacting our advise line on massuk2013@gmail.com


They say that proof is in the pudding. Our sharks are breeding. The Epaulette sharks have laid not only one pouch but seven so far. This tank has not had a water change for nearly two years and obviously its good enough to produce baby sharks. The Pouches are all fertile and therefore hopefully in 90 days we will have baby sharks.

What does this mean to conservation. We can send them back to Australia and save any more being caught. That's the objective of Breeding programs. The quality of the water must be good enough for them to breed but to lay pouches goes a long way to prove that waterchanges just aren't necessary.
