Was just planning a visit. Are they still going? Looks like the entire garden centre has shut

Seems to me the garden centre out was in closed. I wondered if maidenhead aquarius crowland moved somewhere else. Given their loach specialism I thought someone here would know. Indeed i thought someone here used to run it.

Yes you could be right. It pre-dates my occupation on this forum but I seem to remember that our Clown Loach Queen Emma Turner and her partner may have run it. So I see the significance. It was near Peterborough where there is also a newer posher shop open.

My local Maidenhead is in a garden centre - Langlands in Leeds, York Road and is very good.

That's right. I wondered whether she was on here to tell the story you see. They were much more interesting than most shops for the loach fancier for this reason. Unfortunately I moved away from the area and halved their business :)
