About us

Andrew Lindsey has more than 30 years’ practical, full-time experience, gained at one of the region’s most respected aquatic retailers, Langleys Aquatics Ltd. His role included the quarantine and treatment of thousands of newly imported fish, ranging from inexpensive goldfish to high value quality Japanese Koi, as well as maintaining the health of the existing fish. Over the years he was able to trial many treatments and refine dose rates.

He also dealt with the over counter shop sales, giving advice to retail and trade customers on all aspects of fish keeping.  In addition, he was the Aquatics Consultant or pond doctor for Langleys Aquatics, visiting the ponds of dozens of customers annually, covering aspects such as; fish health, water quality, filtration, pond construction, refurbishment and planting advice.  During this time, he has overseen numerous projects from simple pond clean outs to major projects worth tens of thousands of pounds. Andrew is also an Oase Authorised Installer.

Over the last few years, there has been an increasing demand for a consultancy service, from new and existing customers, who require regular pond visits to ensure any potential fish health problems are spotted early, and treated as soon as possible.   This prompted Andrew to offer a pond health consultancy service, and develop it as a full time business, when Langleys Aquatics closed to the public in November 2015.
