The oasis aquarium shop located in salford has always been a very clean and tidy fish shop to visit, i regularly return to buy my fish and aquarium accessories almost weekly, and find they will give excellent advice on my purchases and my thoughts to what i should buy livestock wise.
The prices are good, though some 'necessary' products are are priced a little more than 'fair' like the range of new era foods, gravel and airstones.
I also couldnt of helped notice though within the last 18 months or so the Shop has got more of a 'supermarket' feeling to it, stock seems to be moving around from place to place each time i visit, some products like bags of sand seem to increase by a few pence per week, and lots of 'additional' sales are stringed onto what i finally purchase. Members of staff seemed to be more concerned on what they are writing on their clipboards and answering telephones than greeting customers.
Downstairs in the fish room, 2 or 3 staff on busy weekends seem to be quite unappropriate as often you are stood waiting for upto 20 minutes before a member of staff will serve you.
If Oasis read this then please take this review into account as you are an excellent shop, you always have been, please don't slip into one of those hard profit making orientated businesses with more 'chiefs than indians' kind of setups..
All in all if you are looking for some of the most biggest varieties of livestock, whether be coldwater, tropical of marine, then its definately worth taking a visit to oasis aquarium!
