Here at Because Your Fish, we are a family of hobbyists and breeders. We offer top-of-the-line, hobbyist bred and raised freshwater fish, invertebrates and plants. All products have been raised locally with a little bit of patience and love. Our goal is to provide quality products at affordable prices with superior customer service.

We use 3/4” styrofoam to insulate shipping boxes. We use 4 mil poly bags to ensure an insulated safe and puncture-free shipping experience for our animals. Every product is heat sealed and double bagged and additional packaging materials are added as needed, including heat/cold pack. ***small shipping boxes are too small to insulate and are only available for shipping snails and plants.

Please be sure to read our shipping policy. Check out our reviews while you are there!

If we do have to make any adjustments to the normal shipping protocol, we guarantee timely notification and updates. Really, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at


While we promise to get your products off to the best start, we are not in control of the shipping process once it leaves our hands.

  • Comment: Because Your Fish always kept me up-to-date on the status of my order. I ordered Daisy's Ricefish which arrived meticulously packaged--if you're familiar with Dan's packaging, it's like that, heat-pack and all; it's the best method for shipping small fish in my opinion. The fish were also robust and healthy, which also helped them endure a cold journey across the country. From his tank to my tank, it's clear that Because Your Fish took great care of these fish! I won't hesitate to buy again!
