    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!!
