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

with your order.

When the picture at the top of this page was taken, there were over 150 Redtail Sharks in the aquarium. When they live together in large
numbers in a large aquarium, they get along well with each other. They quarrel but almost never hurt one another. But if you have less than six sharks in the same aquarium, they'll begin to quarrel, and the weakest ones will be miserable. So if you keep Redtail Sharks, keep
one or keep several, but don't keep just a few together. This guideline is true for most aggressive fish.
Redtail Sharks are beautiful, energetic, hardy, and rather aggressive to other Sharks. Redtail Sharks are usually more aggressive than Rainbow Sharks. Click
for information about Rainbow Sharks. Most sharks are not aggressive to other types of fish. So sharks make good tank mates for many types of fish. But it's best to have just one Redtail Shark or one
Rainbow Shark in an aquarium, or more than six, but not just a few.
An aquarium with at least 20-gallon of water, an
filter with a BIO-Wheel, a maximum of 1/4-inch of
gravel, and an
heater adjusted to keep the water between 76 and 80 degrees F. Eventually Redtail Sharks will need an aquarium with at least 40-gallons of water. Click
for more about warm water aquariums.
All Sharks are jumpers, so the aquarium that they live in must have a cover with no holes. Click
for more information about aquarium covers.
Redtail Sharks need a piece of pipe or a cave. The pieces of pipe, shown in the pictures on this page, were cut from a long pieces of pipe that we bought at Home
Depot. Before we put the pieces of pipe in our aquariums, we cleaned them in warm water. Next we tested them in a small aquarium with a few fish to be sure they weren't toxic.
Finally we put the cleaned pieces of pipe in our large aquariums with lots of fish. You might prefer to buy an ornamental cave or rocks that are labeled for use in
aquariums. Such caves and rocks are available in most stores
that sell pet fish and

flake food. Perhaps some sinking food pellets but be careful because uneaten
food will soon spoil and pollute the water.
Be sure to always use a small net to remove uneaten food after
about 10 minutes. Click

Size and Lifespan
Redtail Sharks live for several years and grow slowly to a length of 5" and rarely even longer.
