I dont know whats happened at SPS recently, their order before midday thing is shot away, as I have made a few orders with them now at 10pm and my items are only being picked by 1pm the next day.

Spent a fortune with them (on others behalves). An order consisting of over 200 of goods, 3 vivariums and all the gubbins that goes with and still had to pay 10 delivery. Took four sleeps from 10pm to get the goods delivered. I use them because their cheap and the delivery turn around used to be good but I have ventured elsewhere for livefoods now as they stopped delivering it for so long over the holidays due to weather.

The good thing about them, I ordered a 15KG sack of beech woodchip, cost me 17 but will last a good year or so :) better than the 2 x 10 litre bags for 14 from Pets At Home.

I got my original viv from primrose as they had the LX36 33 + 5pnp but they dont do vivariums anymore either.
All the livefood comes from http://www.livefoods.co.uk/ and ive never had problems with dead bugs.

i spent a fair bit with them too over the last year, not had an order under 150 and was always happy with their delivery, ordered on a friday turned up at work on tuesday.

they are still delivering other bits so will order a couple of bulbs and other bits i need as they are cheaper than others but im going to have to get vivs elsewhere now

Yes, I think Swell Reptiles is about the next cheapest for vivs (wish I could order direct from Vivexotic as they're virtually next door to me in Castleford - if I got a lift I could collect.)

I don't know what Swell charge for viv accessories offhand but Blue Lizard are pretty competitive with regard to lighting/stats and it's free delivery on orders over 50. Good selection and very reliable.

I'm not terribly enthused about SPS right atm myself and I've been a good customer of theirs too. I daresay they're feeling the crunch like all businesses, although I would have thought a business like theirs, in the pet trade, and with such a good reputation, would have every chance of flourishing even in the present climate. Pity ...

I would never order from blue lizard again, bought a flexarium and a bulb from there, both were delivered in a hessian sack, bulb was smashed to smithereens (and one of the flexarium corner brackets was snapped), they wanted a photo of the broken bulb to replace it (as if shaking it down the phone wasnt enough) so had to send it back and get a replacement at my cost...we didnt set the flexarium up straight away so was unaware that it was broken, blue lizard didnt even sell the spare parts for the flexarium so ordered the new corner elsewhere...

I use justvivariums.co.uk for my bulbs, i got 2 repltiglow for 6 each rather than 17 each at SPS...and ended up saving money on SPS price including delivery.

I've just googled Just Vivariums - they haven't a massive choice but their stuff's incredibly cheap - a lot of it out of stock unfortunately but worth keeping an eye on - I reckon the thing is to swoop when it does come into stock - their vivs are cheaper than SPS and 8.99 for a 150w ceramic bulb has to be good! Thanks for that, Carly.
