Koala Handling, Unleashed, Reptile Presentation
“Was extremely happy with the service I received from Kerry and Clive. The shop was very clean and all the animals looked healthy and happy as it was feeding time for many. I purchased an Australian tarantula and Kerry was extremely helpful and knowledgeable on them. She was kind enough to open enclosures to let my kids look at many spiders and they have not stopped talking about how much fun they had and how nice the staff were. Will absolutely be returning to purchase another spider in the near future. Highly recommend Fish haven.” – Danielle Chapman
“We were provided with helpful advice on cleaning and restocking a large pond in a property we recently purchased. Kerry was very helpful and took time to test water for us and help us to make selections with fish health in mind. We find our visit to the shop very useful.” – Carla Branson
