Ordered from Pro-Shrimp a few times now and the delivery has always been swift and well-packed. My last order included 10kg of dragon stone, a good number of plants and a medium sized catfish root. I was very pleased with all the items. The catfish root was excellent value compared to ones I had seen in other shops, a really nice specimen. It is to go in a 120cm tank and I was glad I went for the medium rather than the large size as it was bigger than I had envisaged. (For info - it has been soaking for a couple of weeks now and there have been virtually no tannins staining the water). The plants were all very healthy and I was able to split most into several clumps for planting. They were very well packed and all arrived undamaged, despite being packed with rocks, etc. For 10kg of dragon stone I received 6 medium sized rocks which were all very nice looking pieces. Any research on the internet will point out that dragon stones need a lot of washing. I would agree with this and I had to put the hose on these with some pressure, to jet out the soil caught in the holes. It is also worth mentioning that the stone does break quite easily because it is quite a soft stone, but I didn't find that a problem, just mentioning as info for others. I would happily recommend Pro-Shrimp for quality and value for money and I will continue to order from here.

Honestly used pro shrimp for many years but this recent shrimp delivery had tarnished them for me. They arrived with two types of problems. One fungal and the other nose parasites. I didn’t say anything because I thought they’d be simple to treat. It wasn’t. Somehow through my own fault I contaminated my community tank with hundreds of shrimp. Which I can’t blame pro shrimp for fully but if they didn’t send me sick shrimp I wouldn’t be in this mess. The regular salt bath and remove moults wasn’t going to cut it in the community tank as there were far too many and too many hiding places. So I used another medication which was supposedly shrimp safe ( not from pro shrimp ) which has now wiped out all my community tank shrimp and the shrimp I bought weeks ago from pro shrimp. So yeah. I wouldn’t recommend them. If I didn’t buy from them I’d still have all my shrimp. They are still good for plants though which is why I have them an extra star. Just I won’t ever again purchase any shrimp from them. Possibly not snails either out of paranoia.

Very happy with Pro Shrimp so far. The web site is well laid out & easy to navigate. The cost's are very reasonable and the ordering process is simple. I like they use Royal Mail for delivery's who always update you by email. I recently bought some live plants from them (1st time doing so online) and they were spot on, all doing well and look brilliant in the tank. So overall I can wholly recommend using Pro Shrimp and will continue to use them.

I have ordered snails for my aquarium from pro shrimp before, they arrived healthy and in good condition. On this occasion it wasn't any different. I also ordered some shrimp this time. Everything was well packaged. I was contacted by email over the jubilee weekend and asked when I would be home, followed by another email letting me know when they would be dispatched. Excellent service from pro shrimp. I would highly recommend.

Ordered pond pump same as my original one which had stopped working but new pump had smaller fittings & could not be connected to existing fittings. Despite being weekend I still got a message to say no problem just pack up & return which I did & very quickly my account was credited. Despite being the wrong pump, delivery was speedy & I would use this company again

Pro Shrimp off extremely good value for your money. I couldn’t find my fish tank priced cheaper elsewhere. My tank arrived via courier on time, safely packed and ready to install. I would recommend Pro Shrimp and would use again if needed to buy a reasonably priced, good quality fish tank in the future.

Delivery was fast, unfortunately one of the items arrived broken but within 10 minutes of sending an email to customer service, someone got back to me and assured me a new one would be sent to me, sure enough within a couple of days it arrived, very happy customer and would definitely recommend.

Pro shrimp has a very useful feature of their website, which is a notification system that sends an e-mail when a previously out of stock item is back in stock. I have always received items promptly, in good condition and as described, without excess packaging.

I’ve been buying from pro shrimp now for several months with setting up various fish tanks. The products have always been as described , have been packed well and arrived always in one piece. I’m always very happy to return my custom.

Brought the plants for my brothers tank Most of the plants came in great condition, the only one that was not good was the Rotala SP.Orange Juice, aside from that everything else really improved the tank :) Will be buying more soon

I had to contact to find out warranty period as it was not listed any where. It turned out to be 2 years where most competitors are 3 years. All other dealings were as one would expect.

Good price, availability and delivery time. Wanted to reinstate C02 in my aquarium and local shops not stocking. Online saved the day and was a better price and delivered to more door.
