A Review of the Maidenhead Aquatics YouTube Channel

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, my family and those whom God loves.

Peter, Andrew, James and John all ran a fishing business (Matthew 4:18-22). They left it to follow Jesus, but fishing was in their blood (John 21:3), much like the people who work at Maiden Aquatics are passionate about fish and fishkeeping.

Maidenhead Aquatics is a large chain of 150 aquatic stores across the United Kingdom. Their first store was opened in Maidenhead, England. Their staff are people who are themselves fishkeepers and have a passion for the hobby.

Among their stated priorities is the following: The needs of the livestock are our utmost priority! We aspire to meet the highest welfare standards in the trade and to bring you a huge selection the very best livestock.

Maidenhead Aquatics has been producing YouTube videos since June 24, 2009 and their YouTube channel has subscription level of 20,000 as of March, 2020 .

Their videos can be grouped around the following topics:
🐟 Pond Equipment
🐟 Reviews of aquariums, filters and water products
🐟 Store Tours
🐟 Fish found at their store
🐟 Children’s educational videos
🐟 Tank displays
🐟 Fishkeeping Tips

I will be listing some of their better videos as I review them.

On their website they also offer an online magazine with various informational articles and a Help and Advice section including a fish and plant databank. I will also list below some of their better articles.

You may not be able to get to England, but here’s one of their store tours (archived backup):

Grace be with you,
