Small quite basic aquarium but at only £3 was ok at the price. Lots of different fish and children loved the terrapins. Nice touch having the sand to play in.

Absolute waste of money. Yes it's only 3 quid but if you had two or three children it would be expensive. Just loads of fish in mostly murky water. Oh some turtles as well. Walked round it in five minutes.
