    I absolutely love this fish store! I have had a fresh water tank since early November 2021. All of my plants, wood, and fish except one are from The Wet Spot. All of my fish are happy, healthy, and gorgeous. I have purchased White Cloud … More Mountain minnows, 3 different pangio species, and mystery snails.
    Along with the quality of my tank additions being exceptional, the staff is also terrific! Every time I’ve been in the people working have been knowledgeable and super friendly. My last visit I had a chat with Leah. She took the time to listen to all the questions I had about my fish and plant life. Being new to this, hobby I am still expanding my knowledge, and have PLENTY of questions. Thank you Leah for taking the time to make me feel confident in my purchase!!

    This place is amazing. The employees will always take the time to answers questions and educate you on the fish you are looking at buying. This has saved me so much trouble once I am home with my new fish, not to mention saved me a bunch … More of money from buying the wrong items. Over all I HIGHLY recommend this place for your needs when it comes to your fish friends.

    One of the best places to order live freshwater aquarium fish. I've ordered twice, ZERO doa (36 fish, not ONE casualty!) Reasonable shipping, beautiful, healthy fish! Can't go wrong!

    This place is wonderful, the upkeep on these aquariums are lovely.
    I heard them going over cleaning/feeding schedules as I was in the store. I saw 0 dead fish and only live healthy plants. Last aquatic store I went to had ich on most of
    … More their fish, not this place!
    The staff is helpful and funny, you can tell they enjoy their job and eachother.
    Let me also mention the pricing is very reasonable. I got 6 kuhli and they're so happy and healthy!
    Nothing makes me happier then aquatics. Can I just move in?
    Edit: As I was reading, yes there is a very sarcastic/rude male that works there. He looks like a hipster though so I just assume it's part of his shtick? I asked what breed of nitrate and he sad "yes. It is a snail." And walked away. I am in customer service and I hate people too. Cheers to him.

    Upon entering into the wet spot I was absolutely blown away! The fish tanks are all in absolute perfect condition. I wanted 2 of everything and one of everything else that I seen.
    The staff are amazing and vey helpful.
    I am a lifelong customer.
    … More
    The one problem is that the fish are so healthy that once you fill one tank you end up with more. Im currently on tank 3 a 55 gallon. 😎👍😊

    Have ordered live fish many times from The Wet Spot in the past 8 years. Always well packed with zero D.O.A and this most recent purchase was no different. Their customer service is responsive, helpful and friendly. Solid team always … More does a great job. I do wish they went back to their old style of weekly stock list - it was easier to track what was in stock before they changed the format.
