The Living Reef is owned by Mark & Maggi Edmondson – we have been in the aquatic trade for over 20 years. This is our third aquatic outlet, having started in the Oldham area until we sold the business in 2005 to build Amazon Aquatics in Leigh, Lancashire.
The Living Reef was originally set up by an old friend and someone who worked for us in our first shop; Keith Shaw, together with his business partner Alan Hollas.
We took over The Living Reef in 2012 and have taken the business from strength to strength by continuing to help existing customers, as well as welcoming new ones. The shop is now managed by Ian Edmondson, an experienced hobbyist, who was based at Amazon Aquatics prior to transferring to Living Reef and has a sound knowledge of both marines and tropicals. Ian is assisted by Lee Thompson and also Mike Donlan who was also at Amazon Aquatics prior to transferring. Mike has over 20 years experience in the aquatic trade and is also an avid hobbyist.
