Keep Your Eyes Open For Multibuy Livestock Deals:

Aqua One Oakstyle Oak effect 230. A traditional colour choice from Aqua Ones hugely successful aqua oak range of aquarium furniture sets. When you see the Aqua One Oakstyle Oak effect 230 in the flesh it looks quite impressive. It certainly does not reflect the cheap price you pay for it visually. It looks well-made and the choice of panel with some texture gives it a quality feel too.

The 230 in the name refers to the tanks volume in this case 230 litres. The tank measures 123cm long, 78cm high and 48cm front to back. It has all glass lids, and the centre piece of glass lifts out for maintenance and to allow the input of rocks, roots, and other décor.

Please note that the opening does sometime prevent the placement of large piece of decoration or ornaments. The way that the glass covers fit reduces aquarium access to 98cm x 20cm approx. So, plan ahead if you have your eye on a large piece of wood. You now have the measurements so you can check, or you can always get the saw out.

The Oak style 230 cabinet.

The Oakstyle 230 Oak Effect cabinet and tank trim finished in a colour that Aqua One describe as Oak effect. The cabinet comes flat packed but, is an easy build with good instructions. As you can see from the image the cabinet features 3 working drawers. Which sets it apart from most other fish tank cabinets and we think it looks great. The handles feature a modern design, but the doors and drawers could easily be fitted with traditional handles if you wished.

Top Tip when building the cabinet.

Just watch that you put the bottom rail the correct way around. You will kick yourself when it’s all done, and you stand back to admire your work and spot your mistake. Also, when fitting the top trim fit the front first, use the sides to centre but, stick them on last. If the sides are slightly proud the long front piece will stick on but may not stay on as at the ends it cannot stick.


Aqua One Oakstyle 230 Oak effect Equipment.

The Aqua One Oakstyle 230 Oak effect aquarium and cabinet set is supplied with lights, heater and filter. The filter supplied is the Ocellaris 850 external filter not a bad filter Ocellaris 850 external filter Aquarium from 150-250 litres Max flow rate: 850 litres per hour Power consumption: 9.7 watts Dimensions: 41 x 20 x 20cmWith a flow rate of 850 litres per hour and a low power consumption of only 10 watts it’s got power for low cost.  It also comes with all the media, hoses and fittings supplied too. The heater, a standard glass 300 watt aqua one heater nothing special but, reliable. The lighting is LED now most websites will copy and paste Aqua Ones description which is “Powerful LED lighting, featuring white & RGB LEDs, with separate blue LED function” Which we agree with apart from “powerful” bit. Sorry Aqua One.

We have this opinion because we know the product and we talk to owners of the Aqua One Oakstyle Oak effect 230. Remember we are foremost a retail shop that interacts with customers daily.  Instore the truth also goes a long way; people enjoy an informed none pushy choice.

Online however, very different mostly and websites usually don’t know much about the products they list, and some may never have even seen them because of drop shipping.

The light is ok for lighting up the tank an gives a nice colour, but high light dependant plant species will not fare well with this Low power LED light.

Livestock Delivery.

The store maintains specific policies regarding the delivery of livestock. Here are the key points:

  1. Licensed Livestock Courier: The store exclusively uses a licensed livestock courier for shipping fish and coral. This approach is chosen to ensure responsible and ethical transportation of the livestock.
  2. Livestock Shipping Fee: The livestock shipping fee charged to customers of £19.99 does not cover the true cost, and therefore, there is a minimum spend requirement of £30.00 before the option for livestock shipping becomes available.
  3. Pre-Arranged Delivery: The store never ships livestock without first arranging a suitable delivery day. Before dispatching the livestock, the store must confirm the agreed-upon delivery day with the customer.
  4. Saturday Delivery Confirmation: Customers who choose Saturday delivery must have their availability confirmed for the upcoming Saturday before the store sends out the livestock. This confirmation ensures that the livestock can be received promptly.
  5. Failure to wait for livestock: Not waiting for livestock, even if there is a reasonable delay, or cancelling an order after it has been dispatched will lead to you incurring charges for an emergency return to the base. Additionally, any losses of livestock will also be charged to you. Please be aware that the items you are ordering are living creatures – livestock. We kindly ask that you refrain from ordering livestock if you are unable to accommodate the possibility of a delayed delivery.

    These terms and conditions are a fundamental aspect of our policy. Our primary goal is to dissuade individuals who could react negatively to a delayed delivery and subsequently request order cancellations. It is of utmost importance to underscore that your order pertains to living creatures, not mere inanimate objects. In the event of an occasional delay, it is crucial that you respond in a rational and responsible manner, taking into account the welfare of the livestock. We kindly request that you refrain from placing an order for livestock if you tend to react strongly to such situations. By proceeding with the order of livestock, you indicate your acceptance and agreement to abide by these specified terms and conditions.

  6. Signature Requirement: Livestock deliveries require a signature upon receipt and cannot be left in a safe location. This precaution ensures proper handling and the well-being of the livestock.
  7. Geographic Restrictions: The courier has strict geographic restrictions for livestock deliveries. Unfortunately, deliveries to Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Isle of Man, Isles of Scilly, Channel Islands, and certain Scottish offshore postcodes may not be possible. Customers are encouraged to contact the store via email to confirm if livestock delivery is available in their area.
  8. Minimum Order Value and Order Cancellations: The store has a minimum order value of £30 for livestock shipping. Additionally, the store reserves the right to cancel orders that are deemed high-risk or involve a high number of single tropical freshwater fish species.

It is essential for customers to familiarize themselves with these policies before making a purchase. For more detailed information or specific inquiries, customers should consult the store’s terms and conditions or reach out to the store directly for clarification.
