“I came today to get the equipment for my first aquarium everyone who worked there were so helpful and kind and I would definitely go again. I could spend all day in there if I could! What an amazing experience.”
“It’s good to know in the lockdown situation you can still get a great service, needed to replenish my treatments for tank came within a days of ordering on line. Thank you so much for your continued support.”
“Fantastic service today, spent lots of time with me explaining how to set up the new Marine tank as its all new to me, and assisted with tips on the aqua scape, looking forward to getting the fish soon. Thanks again for your time”
“After visiting quite a number of aquatic shops but never finding the one that ticked all the boxes I heard about Octopus 8. It’s quite a distance away (120 miles round trip) but in my opinion worth every penny just to get there. Louis’s knowledge borders on encyclopaedic at times but never belittles or makes you feel like an idiot for asking, his mantra of “The only stupid question is one not asked” bodes well for the future.
The shop is very spacious and has more of a boutique feel and look to it but without the boutique prices. I’ve now been visiting the shop for two and a half years and can honestly say that I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thanks to all at the shop for the advice, patience and generally just making you feel like part of the family and a valued customer.”
“I have been going to octopus 8 since it opened, having known Louis' reputation I knew it was going to be good and they certainly haven't disappointed. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and always have time for a chat. The selection and variation of fish is fantastic and the prices are better than most. Would 100% recommend!”
“This shop is a little gem. It has so many interesting unique fish (freshwater and saltwater), corals and accessories. The customer service is A++ and you are always welcomed with a smile. The advice is brilliant. Well ++++ worth a visit”
“Always great competitively priced stock. Advice is always very helpful. Louis is always patient and full of great advice especially when I was new to marine tanks. Would recommend octopus 8 to anyone without a hesitation.”
“Brilliant shop with the best Quality and selection of coral I have ever seen and equally great fish! Really helpful team that are always happy to go the extra mile whether it’s advice and information or just a friendly chat!”
“Well what can I say about Louis,Jackie,Ben and the rest of the Octopus8 family which I include myself and my family as it’s more of a home than a shop Louis sold me my first ever tank and I’ve had ups and downs but Louis has always been there to sort it out the shop is fantastic lots of stock, dry goods as well as live stock and corals at very reasonable prices friendly atmosphere and you even have the crack with the customers even if you’re not there to buy anything it’s a fantastic place to spend some time so if you’ve never been before go check it out you won’t be disappointed happy fish keeping at
“Louis and ben top guys always happy to help and advise octopus 8 ain't just the best shop in hull but one of the best in Yorkshire they stock a good verity of tropical fish and dry goods as well as marine you wont be disappointed”
“Great advice Great service and a genuinely friendly family atmosphere to the shop. No matter how busy Louis is always happy to chat and offer great advice, i travel a lot with my work and visit many different aquatic shops for my money Octopus 8 is up amongst the top shops in Yorkshire if not the top shop in Yorkshire, whilst still a very young business i feel sure that with Louis at the wheel it will prosper and go far. Always has a great selection of Marine Tropicals and Corals Frags are Louis speciality and theres always a great deal to be had . Tropical fish keepers are also well catered for with a good choice of fish and aquatic plants ... keep up the great work Louis”
“Octopus 8 a great Marine and Tropical fish shop and suppliers, plenty of stock available, also items that are not in stock he will get in fo you at a sensible price. All live stock are in good health and well cared for.”
“It's always slightly daunting walking into a new store, but it's a real credit to Octopus 8 and it's staff just how relaxed this place feels, it doesn't matter if I'm coming in to browse, ask for advice, or just to hang out, I'm always made to feel welcome.
The store is clean and tidy, and staff have never steered me wrong with their advice, even if that meant missing out on a sale.
There is great selection of both tropical and marine fish, but the corals are where this place really shines, both in selection, price and quality!
I've done the rounds locally and can say hand on heart this is the best by far!”
