Having seen the website saying if it's on the website it's in stock and that if there will be a delay with the order they'd contact within 1 working day I went ahead and ordered an aquarium and stand at 8am on the 31st of August. The payment was taken, and the order processed very quickly.
That's as far as it went. I received no further updates, so on Monday 5th when I got home from work (gave them 3 full working days, not including the wednesday) I logged into my account and see they are awaiting delivery from their supplier. I send a message querying this, as their website promises contradicted what I was experiencing. I get a reply on Tuesday morning to say they are sorry for the delay but the only tank they had in stock that I ordered was discovered broken, so they had to order a new one and it will take 2 days. Fine, these things happen but they didn't have the common courtesy to even notify me of the delay.
Of course, it's now Thursday, 8 days since I placed the order and my money was taken, and no further updates. The order still shows as awaiting delivery from their supplier.
I'd recommend ignoring the blatant lies on their site as they don't bother to contact you, and instead spend your money with someone who actually has a clue about stock management and customer service.
The only reason I chose them was because of the promises made on the site. If I'd have used another supplier I'd have my tank here now setup.
After checking out different companies on the Internet for a Juwel Rio 180 Aquarium Rocketaquatics came out tops for price. Straight forward ordering. Ordered on a Saturday evening received the tank on Wednesday. Great communication. Would definitely recommend and would deal with them again.
if you like fish and like looking at them this product is great , a little fiddly
to put together but well worth the time and effort required (first spotted this at my local aquatics centre and even they could not secure the pond liner in the back corners it is possible with time don't let this put you off ) far better than a hole in the ground, looks like my fish think so as well , so to sum up great, and a lot cheaper from rocket aquatics than my local aquatics centre .
I placed my order in Friday and the tank was delivered on Tuesday really well packaged up and I even had a email stating a hour deliver slot so I knew when it would be here and everything went very smooth from the transaction to delivery i'm very pleased with the service provided.
I was unsure exactly what my requirements were and following a telephone call to Rocket Aquatics, I was given all the info and help I needed. Excellent customer service and once I had placed my ordered online, delivery was exactly as expected. First class all the way. Would have no problem recommending them and will certainly use them again.
Ordered a vivarium which is now over a week overdue.
Company rep could not even be bothered to query with there courier, instead asking me to chase it up. Still have no idea if I'm getting my delivery as there courier service is giving me the run around with the usual it's left the depot no it hasn't yes it has routine. So I'm very unlikely to shop here again
I purchased a Juwel Korall 60 goldfish aquarium , it was delivered within 2 days and the courier text me on the day with a one hour time slot which helped and he was on time . Item was very well packaged and aquarium set up easily . I am extremely pleased with product and overall service . Recommended .
I ordered an aquael fish tank set up which was promptly sent and very well packed,however the heater supplied is not up to the job and is clearly marked as being for a smaller fish tank. I contacted rocket about this but they do not seem interested in correcting the mistake.With a bit more customer after care they could have got full marks.
Ordered a Jewel 450 Fish tank over the internet. I rang to ask a few questions in advance all were answered by a very helpful and friendly person over the phone. Some of the smaller free items arrived the next day, the rest arrived on time via Longs of Leeds who rang the day before to arrange a convenient time to deliver. The driver was polite and friendly and helped offload the tank, stones and cabinet right into my front room.
I rang up the same day with a few questions, notably did I have to wash the gravel which was not obvious again friendly and helpful service advising me to and how to wash them.
Great experience would use again.
I bought the Juwel Korall 60 Goldfish Aquarium as an upgrade for my daughter. Delivery was very prompt (2 working days) and the on-line process for changing the delivery date was very simple. I received an email at 9.15am on the day of delivery notifying me of the 1 hour delivery slot I was allocated for that day.
The tank was well packaged and all was intact.
The tank was easy to set up, the filter seems to be very powerful, so hopefully we shouldn't need to do too much cleaning. The light is very bright and provides good viewing of the complete tank. All in all a good buy, cheaper than anywhere else I could find online. I now have a happy daughter and happy fish!
Order received in good time, but supplied plastered with "buy one, get one free" stickers. When I supplied picture of packaging with stickers (and my order despatch note) and asked about offer, I was told " it's only valid for retailers, I.e. shops". I though you guys were retailers.
For the fact you are not that much cheaper and the fact you scammed me out of a free lamp, why chance upsetting a possible regular customer? All for £20? Such a shame that you think you can screw the normal person, or as we like to be called "the customer".
I have always trusted Rocket Aquatics, still no reason not to. Place your order, sit back and before you know it, it is delivered to your door.
I can rely on Rocket Aquatics to get the right item, at the right price. Quality items at a quality price, I would recommend them for all your needs.
Thanks for a really Great Service.
Were very good with keeping me up to date with where my order was and when it would be delievered. Delievery was when it said it would be. I had no problems finding what i wanted on the web size and thank goodnes they had what i needed because i couldnt find it my going on amazon or ebay like i would have normally done. While i was browsing these other sites it was recommended to try this one and i am so grateful as i had just brought some new fish for my tank and they didnt have any light and being tropical fish they really need it so i wa able to order what i needed and it came on a tuesday when i had ordered it on a sunday night.
Product was cheapest I could find online ordered one day delivered next! Was very very well packef they must go through a ton of bubble wrap however glad of that after I sern the delivery man chuck lots of boxes about to get to mine and then was quite rough handling my box. Only problem was heater supplied as part of pack was a 75w which isnt suitable for tank they say thats supplier problem and havr agreed to exchange hopefully get that soon....
very good service i had received when ordering my juwel korall 60 tropical tank, no problems with it, packaged very well, the service was very prompt to the delivery times that they had stated. very satisfied by my purchase and will be pruchasing from them again in the future
I have bought many items from rockets and it has always been easy and hassle free, this time was no exception. Top quality item, super fast delivery and updates about my order throughout.
I will be buying many more products from rockets in the future and I know I will receive this great service

I ordered a Viviarum, which I believe is faulty, however your company suggest no in fact insisted that I had assembled it incorrectly................ Very reluctant to change item overall would not recommend this company to anyone will never do any further business with you think your company is PANTS
Ordered a Rio 240 Lite Unit for my Tank and discovered after it was delivered that I have in fact got a Rio 180 tank. On contacting the company a very friendly and helpful member of staff immediately said no problem I could have a refund on the first order ( which was entirely my fault ) and they would send out the replacement as soon as they received the second order. As it was over Christmas I was expecting delivery on the 13th of January but was delighted ( As were my fish ) that the unit arrived on the 4th January. In this day and age of slap happy service it is so refreshing to find a company that obviously care about customer service. I will be buying from them exclusively from now on and will recommend them to all my friends.
Ordered 2 items the first to arrive was the Juwel 60 tank. Extremely well wrapped and protected by yards of bubble wrap and cardboard, no cracks or breaks in the glass.
The second item which was marked on the advice note as to follow. Would of been helpful if they had said when it was to follow. I telephoned Rocket to find out if it had been dispatched only to get the answerphone telling me they had closed for Christmas.
This left me wandering if I should go to the local pet shop to purchase off the shelf as it was the New Aquarium start up kit. The next day however I had the second delivery and so panic over. Very good price and all items delivered within 3 days I wiil use them again.
I purchased a Reef One Biorb intelligent led light to replace my existing one that no longer worked. Upon receipt of the light it failed to work as advertised on the website and detailed in the supplied instruction manual. I initially had good communication with Rocket Aquatics and they suggested sending it back if I was unhappy which I did. Upon receiving the return I was informed by Rocket Aquatics that they had spoken to Reef One and the specification of the product had changed, you could no longer select from an assortment of day/light options. They admitted they would have to change the description provided on their website. They agreed to provide a refund but minus the postage costs incurred by me for returning the product which was not as advertised. I have pointed out that under the distance selling regulations they have to pay for the return of goods if they fail to comply with the contract but since this email they have stopped all correspondence with myself.
Although the sum involved is not large it is the principle and although I have used Rocket Aquatics in the past, even recommending them to others, I won't be doing so again based on the outcome of my latest purchase.
I recently aquired a Curly Hair Tarantula but needed a new terrarium, I searched ebay and other sites, I came accross Rocket Aquatics & wow, exactly what I was looking for & cheaper than I could get on ebay & other visited sites for the same item, I placed my order and within a couple of days it was here, extremely well packaged. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rocket Aquatics, I have put them in my favourites as I will definately be using them again. Fantastic products at realistic prices & excellent service.
Bought F 'r F tank from Rocket 7 years ago. Lighting/electrics failed within the one year guarantee so complete top unit was replaced free of charge. 12v pump wires took 7 years to corrode away, so was pleased a replacement was still available, although a little pricy! Nice website, swift service, fish are having fun again!
A well laid out website made what I wanted easy to find, and I really like the fact that if a product is not in stock it won't be displayed. The price was slightly less than I found elsewhere, and my goods arrived within a few days. Very happy with this company, and would definitely recommend them to others.
I ordered a bio orb 60 on Sunday and I had it by Tuesday and having the tracking service is great as it gives you the hour it will be delivered.
Great service and good price and very happy fish and I got the remote control changing light......stunning and my children were amazed and dancing about and I may have been!!!
I would recommend to a friend
Thank you :0)
