    Awesome place, only let a few customers in at a time due to covid. Stayed open past closing to allow only a few in at a time. Knowledgeable and a great selection. Only down side is they are expensive.

    I can only speak to me experience ordering online, and it surpassed my expectations. Shipping cost was reasonable (whatever agreement they have with UPS is both efficient and cost-effective), and the quality of the fish they shipped was … More exceptionally high. The were colorful, healthy, and vigorous. Communication was also top-notch. I knew what was happening every step of the way, and when I emailed with a question, I got an answer back usually within a few hours. I will definitely be purchasing from here again.

    Our new fish from The Wet Spot are so beautiful and doing amazing in our nano tank. The packing for Next Day delivery was superb! We cannot wait to stock another tank with The Wet Spot.

    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. 😎👍😊

    I live 400 miles away from this store and still shop here. I've placed 3 online orders and shopped in-person a handful of times (when I'm in the area) and each transaction has been nothing short of excellent. I don't have … More any tropical fish stores local to me besides national-chain pet stores which I don't particularly want to support. The Wet Spot has met every need I've had from fish, plants, hardscape, dry goods and chemicals. If you've ever wanted a particular fish for your aquarium, they probably have it in stock and if they don't, they'll probably have it in the next few weeks. The staff is always helpful and knowledgeable. They take time with you even when they're incredibly busy. Online ordering is a bit cumbersome at first, but once you are an established customer it's smooth sailing. Every delivery I've had has been flawless, even the time that UPS was 9 hours late. I can't recommend these guys enough -- if you want some tropical fish you can't go wrong with The Wet Spot.
