Oasis Store - Manchester

Postby Abdul » Tue Jul 06, 2010 2:26 pm

Well, I'm going to write what i've seen today about Oasis in manchester (8 Great clowes street).. I basically went to buy some bactinettes for topping up the live bacteria in my tank, and my curiosity dragged me to have a look on the Malawi section, so here's what i've seen:

Well first of all, some of the malawi names are not labelled right and labelled differently from what I have already known..
and they were mixing up mbuna's with aulonocara's .. Looking at the colours some of them are fading, either to stress or bad water quality.. and I found couple of the red empresses, lying down which indicative of some sort of sickness.. Really feel sorry for them.. and above that the prices of this shop for anything is very over priced!

So i hinted out what i have seen to one of the younger staff, he replied " they look fine to me, but i appreciate your concern"... well i guess that it's not rocket science to identify a diseased fish..

maybe you had different experience? I don't know.. :)
