   Welcome to Beacon Pet Aquarium - the best choice for pet shops in Birmingham. We recently celebrated 30 Years of Pet Shop Business and featured in a local newspaper with the following article:-

     Albino frogs and kissing fish – the wonderful and weird world as Great Barr Pet Shop marks 30 years.

  A SHOP which has served the people and pets of Great Barr is celebrating three decades in business.

Beacon Pet Aquarium, situated on Sundial Lane, houses more than 2,000 fish and has pets such as budgies and gerbils – being the go-to place for pet-loving residents in the area.

Speaking to the Observer about the shop's milestone, owner Bob Bayley – who opened the shop back in 1986 with late wife Ursula – said: "We are so grateful for the support of customers, old and new, over the last three decades.

"To some of our regulars we have become known as the Tardis or Aladdin's cave due to the large amount of stock kept in a very small space."

Bob, added: "You have to have a love for animals and their wellbeing or you would never get involved in this sort of job or business.

"Even on days when the shop is closed we still have to be there to check and feed the livestock."

There are around 100 fish tanks at Beacon Pet Aquarium, housing all sorts from pink kissing fish to albino frogs and yellow-bellied turtles.

"Although most of our fish are not obscure we have had unusual ones such as piranha, pacu, arrowana, archers, red tail cats and many of the different plecostomus species just to name a few," added Bob.

"The fish come from all around the world but the majority are shipped through Singapore which is a sort of fish warehouse."

Bob, who takes more of a back seat nowadays, leaves the running of the pet shop to his son Iain and dedicated staff members Amy Pinfield, Matt Hankin, Courtney McMaster, Bella MacAdams and Josh Steel.

"We have served thousands of customers over the last 30 years," added Bob, "many of whom keep coming back and are more like friends to us.

"So, here's to the next decade!"

     Our store stocks everything for all of your pet and aquatic requirements. We have many assorted tanks of tropical and cold water fish, as well as plants, pets and pet food. If you would like to find out more, please don't hesitate to call us today.
