Here at Maidstone aquatics we stock a few  unusual Coldwater fish when available, including - Rainbow Shiners, Hong Kong plecos & weather loaches. 

Goldfish & Shubunkins are always available in a variety of sizes. Great for aquariums & ponds alike. They are super hardy and make great starter fish. Goldfish aren't fussy eaters and love flakes, bloodworms & pellets. They can grow up to 12"-15" so making sure you have a suitable home for them is essential. It is a common misconception that Goldfish will only grow as big as their environment. We stock everything needed to keep your Goldfish happy & healthy.

Goldfish & Shubunkins
Other Coldwater fish

White Cloud Mountain Minnows, are a great choice for the Coldwater aquarium. They are a small shoaling fish which can display great colours. They are very calm and docile making them ideal for a mixed species tank. Gold White Cloud Mountain Minnows are a popular colour variant. Being omnivorous they like to feed on a variety of foods like flakes & bloodworm.


Fancy goldfish make great pets as they are relatively easy to care for. Peaceful and mostly hardy making them an ideal starter fish. They come in many varieties such as Orandas, Pearlscales & Telescopes. Please bare in mind that they can grow up to 6"- 8" so a suitable size aquarium is recommended.  We always carry a great selection. Fantails love to eat lots of bloodworm and we have plenty of frozen or live for you to buy. Sinking pellets are another firm favourite and they help to eliminate swimbladder infections.
