Two hobbies, keeping tropical fish and exploring old slate mines, came together to form a passion. There seemed to be a lack of natural products to purchase and although some of the resin based painted ornaments looked nice it was frustrating to watch them wear and fade over a few months. We started by making real slate ornaments for our own aquarium.

Fennstones has come a long way since then, local aquatic stores took an interest and did well selling our caves and formations.

We found a number of aquarium safe materials and compounds which we combined with certain techniques to make the structures strong enough to send out by mail order.

We hand pick the finest Welsh slate direct from the quarry which we then file, wash and sterilise to make completely safe to introduce into your pets environment.

Every piece we make is unique, all handcrafted, no two ornaments will ever be quite the same.

Our aim is to make sure our customers are fully satisfied and love the ornaments as much as we do.


Finding the best slate is not always easy.
