    This was my first time ordering fish online so I was really nervous but TWS did an INCREDIBLE job! They were packaged extremely well and arrived on time!
    They were active as soon as I opened the box and became even more active after acclimating
    … More and being added!
    The customer service is great and they keep you informed, updating you asap.
    I will definitely only be using this business for my online live fish orders!
    Thank you so much!!

    A lot and a lot of live plants. Price is a little bit pricey but they do have a big selection. Employees there are friendly not demanding or persuasive. They have a total 6 isles loaded with only fish tank. The display fish tank are super … More vibrant. It is a wheelchair accessible. Easy to find parking lot. Will definitely keep on going until they mistreated me.

    There is no better spot in Portland for tropical fish and plants than The Wet Spot. The place is amazing and the service can not be matched. Their employees are knowledgeable and helpful. There is always a line, but their signup list and … More bell feels more like a tradition than an annoyance. It’s well worth the wait.

    This place is world-famous for a reason.
    They don't have the widest selection for the rarest fish or the most amazing anything. What they do have is a great layout and fantastic service and a good system for making sure customers
    … More have a fine experience exploring the store and then getting help when they need it. They do have a good selection and a good variety of high-quality products and plants and fish and other livestock.
    You will often find things here that you can't find at other fish stores in the area, but you will also find things elsewhere that you can't find here. If you are just trying to have a nice day at the fish store or you are new to the hobby then this should be your first and probably only stop. If you are deep into the hobby and know your stuff then you might want to check out some of the other places or just visit the store closest to your home on a regular basis but you will still want to keep coming back here because it is always a good experience and I always leave with a smile on my face and probably more stuff than I intended to buy.

    This is the best fish store in Portland hands down, probably in Oregon period! Reasonable prices my favorite place to go.

    This is the 2nd time that I have purchased from the Wet Spot. I am extremely impressed by their team. From Sales to Shipping departments every transaction is smooth.
    Everything is thought out thoroughly on their end right down to the
    … More bags they ship out the fish in. The shipping bags that The Wet Spot use are nice and thick and have rounded corners so it minimizes the fish getting trapped in the corners.
    For the quality of fish, you can tell they are well taking care of. I live in SW Ohio with limited resources in obtaining good live stock. So for me the shipping isn't a big deal knowing that what I am receiving is high quality live stock. I am posting a picture of one of the Apistogramma's that I received from them. Keep in mind this is slightly over 24 hours since I dropped him in my tank he will color up even more as time goes on.
    Give them a try you won't be disappointed!!!
    Update August 2021: Well, I have baby fry after only a month the pair has produced a very nice brood of over 25. Just another testimony of how great live stock is!!!
