    Just thought I would let you guys know that there is a review of the Tyne and Wear area in this months PFK. (For those of you left up North).
    They dont seem to get up there too often

    They checked out

    1) North East Marines
    2) Peter Barratts
    3) Betta Aquaria
    4) Dobbies Garden Centre

    Fairly predicatble assessment IMO
    (Still worth a read though)

    Oh dear what a predictable list. They had a thread going on their forum about this and I suggested the Tropical Team and Cyber Aquatics. Betta is a pure s**thole imo. I’m shifting this to the lounge btw.

    crikey, they missed quite a few out, and the better ones in my opinion.

    Same when they covered Edinburgh. Two that I wouldn’t touch with a bargepole, a garden centre without a clue and the fourth one was almost in Dundee!

    I agree, they missed alot of shops /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />
    My personal LFS for trops in the NE is GLS (Garden & Landscape Solutions) on the grounds of Mickley Garden Centre(just past Prudhoe), Northumberland. Tanks nice and clean, healthy livestock and knowlegable friendly staff who won’t sell you anything you don’t need /wink.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”;)” border=”0″ alt=”wink.gif” />
    My friend has a shop in Dunston but I heard he’s swayed more into reptiles lately and I haven’t been in for a while so can’t confirm what it’s like, must be about 4-5 month since i was there.
    Dobbies, was about 1 yr ago when i was there but I wasn’t impressed and wasn’t that keen on P Barrats either

    They said they had just upgraded the filtration I think I remember someone suggesting something similar once?

    I dont get back that often but I agree there was ALOT they missed out and some they didnt but perhaps should have
