Avoid Betta Aquaria in Newcastle. A long time ago when it was on Shields Rd it was the best shop in the north by far. Till it got sold and moved. Last time I went it was awful.
Armstrong's is long gone BG. I used to get all of the fish for my tank from there when I was a youngun. I loved a visit, they had all sorts.
64L temperate community.
60L betta tank: 1 Delta betta (Stan), 6 sterbai cory.
5ft 425L: 48 rummie nose tetra, 1 longfin BN plec, breeding pair of platinum angelfish, 14 corydoras duplicareas, 1 blue ram.
55L cube 1: 1 blue ram

I used to get driven over from Carlisle occasionally as a young’un. Armstrongs and Betta (we had family friends in Sunderland). Got my first ever BG from there. I remember the big Asian Arowana in the display tank.
