Are your plants out of control? Often, despite having a clear vision of what one wants their tank to look like, the execution can turn out to be a bit lackluster, with plants suddenly having a mind of their own. For this reason, we offer custom aquascaping services, including consultation, installation, and maintenance. Our plant experts will walk you through each step of the process, helping you select appropriate substrate, plants, supplements, and lighting. We’ll help you tame “Audrey II” before suppertime.
Do you have a magical idea, but find yourself in the dark about how to design your tank around it? You don’t have to come unglued! The Wet Spot sets the standard for personally designed, custom-constructed hardscapes! Do you have visions of a tundra, taiga, savanna, or volcanic island? Whatever plane you’re chasing, our designers can install gorgeous and imaginative landscapes, bringing your tank out of the ice age. Tap us to give you a mulligan on your tank, and we’ll even handle the upkeep!
Moving is stressful! Give yourself one less thing to worry about and let us help your fish arrive at their new home safely. Whether you’re moving just a few miles away or several states, The Wet Spot Tropical Fish is here to make sure your finned friends have a safe journey.
For those staying close to the Portland Metro area, we offer tear-down, transport, and set-up of tanks regardless of size or quantity. One (or more) of our experienced staff will come to your home, and carefully break down your existing setup. We’ll proceed to expertly pack your fish and transport everything to its new location. Upon arrival, we’ll set everything up to your specifications, either replicating your previous tank aesthetics or providing a complete design overhaul. Your fish will be unpacked long before you are!
Leaving Oregon behind? While The Wet Spot does accept fish as donations (for those who are unable to take their companions with them), we offer shipping services to help keep your aquatic family together. Simply arrange to drop off your fish off at our Portland store on your way out of town. We will carefully pack them for an overnight trip and ship them to your new location, ensuring they arrive shortly after you do! With your fish taken care of, the only thing you’ll have to worry about is who gets to pick the radio station.
