Fish

What Kind of Fish Are Supplied?

For each package, we select specific fish based on two main criteria:

  • They’re native to the same area of the world as the other fish.
  • They get along with one another.

We also make sure you have a healthy balance of small, medium, and large fish. Overloading an aquarium with all large fish can cause issues such as:

  • The fish will become aggressive toward each other.
  • Too many fish, or too large of fish, can overwhelm the aquarium’s water and cleaning systems.
  • Large amounts of waste will accumulate, contaminate the water, and make all the fish sick.

The right amount of large and medium fish distracts the large fish and helps keep peace in the aquarium. As a part of our aquarium maintenance, we’ll consistently track the size and ratios of fish, as well as their temperament, to make sure they’re healthy and getting along. We’ll add and remove fish as needed to make sure they have a flourishing living environment.

A common question is, “Can I start with a Deluxe aquarium package and wait for the fish to get larger so I can get a Premium package for the price of Deluxe?” The answer is unfortunately no. The difference in package price has more to do with how often we come for fish tank cleaning and maintenance.

The more fish— and the larger the fish—the more we have to do services to keep them healthy. One large fish can equal 15–20 small fish in overall mass. This also means they produce a disproportionate amount of waste. As your fish grow, we’ll continually rotate your fish to the appropriate size. This will maintain the proper balance for your selected service level. On the other hand, should any of your fish die, we’ll replace them free of charge.

Featured Showcase Fish

Frontosa

It’s not just their impressive size or elaborate fins that make these showcase fish so popular. “Fronts” as they are affectionately known, also have an unusually long life span of over 25 years and have quite unique personalities!

Blood Parrot

This rare, magnificent showcase fish got its name because of its large parrot-like mouth. Blood parrots have an endearing way of moving about the tank and are very intelligent and responsive to people. They can easily recognize and will respond to individuals differently. A great addition to any aquarium!

Leopard Cat Fish

These small fish grow only between two and a half and three inches long. The Leopard Cat Fish has distinct brown or gold coloring overlaid with black or dark brown spots. It’s also a very peaceful species, which makes it a great fish to have in a populated aquarium.

Fish Sizes

The illustrations below are meant to give you a feel for the size of our showcase, large, medium, and small fish. Keep in mind, these pictures are not full-size—the real fish are much larger than shown in the picture.

Please use the ruler and the hand in each picture to gain a point of reference as to how big the fish will be.
