Aquagreen About Us
In 1995 Dave and Robyn Wilson started a small business called Aquagreen.
The business is a small licensed Aquaculture facility located at Howard Springs
in the Northern Territory. Our aim is to provide Australian Native plants and fish to
the Aquarium trade. Many native species require high light levels and attention to water quality management.

In April 2015, David returned to full time work in the Northern Territory Government. Aquagreen will continue to provide a online service but with reduced stock. The information will remain on the website, but some items will be marked unavailable. Please read the freight page as this will assist you in placing your order. Website orders will be answered after hours. Upon placing your order a quote for the items you have requested will be returned to you. The following information will be included:
Attached is a quote (a pdf file) for the items you nominated. If you cannot open the attached quote let us know. Quotes are valid for 30 days. If you wish to go ahead with the order, email us the payment details as soon as possible before Monday. If we receive notification after this, and your order contains livestock it may be delayed until the following week. Once the funds arrive your order will be sent out. We accept electronic transfer, or you can use Paypal using our email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) as payment reference. We do not have a credit card facility. We send livestock orders on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to the address nominated. Please check the quote to make sure the address and other details are correct (this is your responsibility). If transported by Toll, the drivers are instructed to leave at your premises, without signature, if you are not home. So consider an alternate address (workplace) if you are not going to be home and want to receive your order in person. The drivers will not leave parcels if the area is not secure i.e. out on the street. If you use EFT Please include the quote number in the reference field of your transaction, AND PLEASE ONLY DEPOSIT THE EXACT AMOUNT ON YOUR QUOTE. If you do not do this it will cause delays.
There is a text field on the online order form if you wish to ask question or to check if we have something available. Once payments are received your order will be shipped. We can only process so many livestock orders per week as we only ship to Wednesday 12.00pm (when the courier arrives). Non livestock can be shipped any day of the week.
If you want to set up an aquarium with fish and plants from a particular place go to the Australia and New Guinea Fishes Association (ANGFA) database and into the survey section where you will find lists of aquatic plants that were observed during the surveys conducted by members. You can get to that web site and other useful sites from the Links page.
