“I like it, it was really fun and I liked to touch the starfish with 9 arms.”

Gillian Charnock, Mixed EYFS KS1 and KS2 at Green Fold Special School
‘The tank, full of interesting creatures, is just outside my office door and it has been fascinating listening to the children discussing what the creatures look like, how they eat and how they move. The little crab is always popular and it’s quite comical in the way it goes about its business. The shrimp is always very busy and the fish are beautiful. It is the urchin that causes the most wonder. For a creature that appears to be still, you can walk past the tank one moment and then it has disappeared the next. It is also collecting debris from the bottom of the tank and wears an old crab claw and various stones on its body- very interesting!’ – on our Happy Habitats Marine Reef Project
Miss Deakin, St Francis Catholic Primary School

Good evening,

I would just like to pass on a huge thanks from the Year 1 team at Morley Victoria for the fantastic Rockpooling Experience that we had today. Dave was brilliant with the children and adults alike and they were completely enthused by the whole thing. They didn’t stop talking about it all day! 

Thank you for such a well-organised, seamless and interesting experience. We really hope to use you again in the future.

Many thanks.

Many of the children’s parents have commented on what a difference to the room it makes and the children have enjoyed many times watching the fish. They have also found it very therapeutic and love feeding the fish. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Aqualease to anybody wishing to purchase any aquarium.”

“Here at South Liverpool Housing we have Aqualease aquariums in our main office area, our customer reception and our Chief Executive’s office. These are all beautiful, they always draw comment from visitors, and the tank in our reception has been a huge success with local children! We have found the company extremely easy to deal with, they designed the aquariums to meet our needs and the maintenance and aftercare has been exemplary. A fantastic solution to what would be, without the service, an impossible facility to maintain ourselves”
“When we decided upon a marine aquarium as the centrepiece of our new showroom, we researched the market and selected Aqualease, we chose wisely.

Shirley , The Smile Centre (UK) Ltd
“Originally we decided on having an aquarium for the children. We thought it would help the children to calm down if they feel angry and to help them to relax a little. We also felt it would help some of our children who have Special Educational Needs and would be a general point of interest for them. Since having the aquarium we’ve found that not only does it meet our original needs (in particular those for our children with Special Eductional Needs), it has also helped the staff, as a kind of ‘stress relief’ system!! Thanks! “

Carol J Commins, Newcastle Under Lyme Chilrens Centre
“I just want to say a big thank you regarding the fish tank we had installed last year. The service you provide as a company is excellent and takes away any worries we would have in maintaining the tank and welfare of the fish!
Most importantly the benefits the fish tank has given to the residents living with dementia. We have found it a useful tool in de escalating distressed reactions in residents as well as a therapeutic calming effect on those who just want to sit and watch the fish. It has also been a good topic point for conversation between residents some of whom have named the fish!

I have also found it to be a positive selling point from a marketing point of view for those people who come to view the home.

Fiona Brown, Home Manager of Springfield Care Home (Blackburn)
“Just a quick note to say thanks for yesterday, the tank looks brilliant, and everybody, customers and staff alike are all commenting on how good it looks!
It looks like it was always meant to be there and not something that was added later.
Thanks again
