    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!

    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!

    This online fish shop is one of the best I have used thus far. I have never lost any fish from shipping. The pricing is very competitive compared to other shops. The staff is awesome to deal with.
  • Avatar Kurt Hoelmer ★★★★★ in the last week
    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.

    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

    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!!
