website has lots of pictures of the fish that we offer for sale.
Will the fish you get look like the fish in our pictures? No!
This is like buying a kitten or a puppy, that will change as it
grows and matures.
We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to ship. Not so
small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big
that they will have trouble adjusting to a new home.
The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the
ones we ship that we raised up, and you can too!
Out of Stock
interested in buying an item that's marked "Out
of Stock", we recommend that you
add this page to your favorites or bookmarks and check back on
this page from time to time.
Generally, we do not know when an item will be back in stock. It
might be a few days, or it might be much longer.
We usually do not get advance notice, so we can't supply you
with any more information, and it will do no good to email us
and ask us, when we'll have it back in stock.
We know that
some customers would like to make a special request with
their order. For example, "the largest Oscar", or "the
smallest Oscar", or "2 male and 4 female Platies", "the
reddest Red Betta Male", etc.
If you send us a Special Request with your order, we'll
try to send you what you request. Click

This picture shows a very big male Frontosa about 12" long with a huge bump on his head, blue coloration on his face, and long pointed fins that are typical of an old dominant male his size and age.
This is a smaller younger 9" male Frontosa. He has the metallic blue color, long pointed fins, and bump on his head that are seen on a dominant male about his size. Click on each picture to see a bigger picture.
This 8" female Frontosa is holding eggs in her mouth, and her throat is extended. Compared to males, her fins are shorter, the bump on her head is smaller, and she lacks the metallic blue coloration.
