    I just need to say that my first experience here was absolutely wonderful. I made sure to remember the name Anastasia. I'm a relatively new fish mom, and Anastasia as well as other staff were welcoming and Anastasia was so knowledgeable … More - answering any and all questions I had (and even some I didn't know I had!) I will definitely be coming here regularly for my fishy needs, as well as recommending my friends come here! Thank you to the staff and specifically Anastasia for your knowledge and business!

    Excellent place to go for all fish/aquatic needs. Staff were knowledgeable, prices were great, and animal care in the store was wonderful. They have a huge variety of fish, tanks, decor, substrate and all aquarium care chemicals/equipment. … More

    This is my go-to store for all my aquarium needs. Knowledgeable friendly staff, amazing variety of fish, plants and supplies. Make sure to hit them up on their anniversary sale for some amazing deals.

    … More out to the entire team who assisted me with my odd rock issue I experienced in my fish tank. The cashier was super helpful and hilarious. A big thank you to the manager who assisted me as well, the guy who tested my water parameters and (as you can tell, I am horrible with names) to the guy with the blue hair who helped me with plants - you rock. Thank you for your expertise and superb customer service (everyone) there's a reason why I keep coming back!

    Had fish shipped. They arrived the next day, at almost the exact time they were scheduled to be delivered. The fish were expertly packed. They were perfectly alive and healthy. Will not hesitate to order from them in the future!

    Ordered purple pencil fish and green rasboras online and everything arrived well-packaged, healthy and active and as promised. Everything is triple-verified by staff which is great. They provide helpful acclimation tips, too. Would highly … More recommend and will purchase from again for sure.

    I have ordered online numerous times and have been blown away by the healthiness and overall quality of the fish. I haven’t lost a single fish out of the 4 or 5 orders of fish I’ve received over the last 2 years. By far the best selection … More of fish anywhere in the USA. Fish are packaged well and with care. Will always look at The Wet Spot first for any of my fish needs.
