Ripples Waterlife at Bridgemere Garden World, Nr Nantwich, Cheshire


This is our
Flagship Store, situated in one of the best garden centres in Europe – certainly one of the largest! If you are interested in gardening, this is the place to visit. The business is still owned and run by a family that are principally gardeners and horticulturalists, and it shows. When other garden centres are reducing the area given over to displaying plants, in favour of products which don’t need looking after, Bridgemere has acres of plants and shrubs as well as huge indoor areas and it continues to expand. There is also a fantastic restaurant. When you bring the family to look at the fish, there will be no problem keeping them occupied!

You will find Tropical, Marine, Coldwater Pond fish and Koi as well as as well as everything needed to look after them.

An ideal starting point for indoor fish keeping is with fancy
goldfish. There are perhaps a hundred varieties of goldfish that have been bred and we keep a big range of them in a dedicated system at Bridgemere, along with absolutely everything you will need to get going, including low cost starter aquariums and all the advice you need to take the kids home, fully clued-up on how to care for their new pet fish.  

The Tropical Fish House

 The Tropical fish house is our biggest yet, with almost three hundred tanks of warm-water fish. We import tropical freshwater fish from every continent in the world except Antarctica! This ensures that we have something for everybody. There is a huge range of community fish alongside rare and specialist species, ranging in price from a neon tetra costing about 1, up to 995 for rare Red & Gold, micro-chipped, CITES listed Arowanas. We also have a dedicated South American fish system, which always houses a range of rare Catfish and Plecostomus alongside many varieties of stunning Discus and other species. Most importantly, we have specialists on hand who are only too happy to help and guide you if asked. In addition to the fish we have an enormous range of Aquariums, Plants, Chemicals, Fish Foods, Decorations, Pumps, and Filters. In fact everything you might need to keep tropical fish including good advice.

 Marine Fish
The Tropical fish House also has our Marine Display. We have individual systems for fish, hard and soft corals as well as shrimps and living rock. The marine stock changes regularly. Personally I find it astonishing that Nature designs such a variety of extraordinary, vividly coloured fish. We also stock everything you might need to keep these fish, ranging from a bag of salt to complete marine aquarium systems.
Cold Water Pond Fish

Our Coldwater Pond Fish are kept in four large systems which enable us to keep a comprehensive range of pond fish, some produced and over-wintered at our own farm in Shropshire. You will find a big selection of Goldfish, Shubunkins, Sarasas, Orfe, Sterlets, small Sturgeon and Ghosts as well as other less common species. We are proud of our Koi collection and stock fish from a few inches up to two feet. Each Spring and again in mid-Summer we travel to the Far East to buy the very best Koi available, and because we purchase in such quantity, they are not the silly prices you see them elsewhere. Naturally, we also stock more Pumps, Filters, Ponds, Liners, UV’s, Fish Foods, Chemicals, Treatments and Plants than you could ever need !

  Water Features

We also stock a huge range of Water Features. Whether it be a simple pebble pool, pond, cascade, waterfall, a self contained feature for the conservatory or large stone tiered fountain, come and see it, (probably working!) at Bridgemere.
