Fish, Tadpoles, and Snails

Our fish come from exceptional fish hatcheries. Health, color and quality are always our main criteria. If they are not healthy - WE DON'T SELL THEM!

We recommend stocking no more than 1 inch of fish for each 15 gallons of water. This allows for growth as well as population increase due to spawning.
