Andres Ryan has worked in the aquaculture business for over 30 years. He has been showing interest for fish since he was 8 years old.

As he was growing so was his passion for freshwater fish. He holds degree in Biology and a Master's degree in Marine Science (Aquaculture). Over the years, Andres has become an expert at finding innovative solutions and unique methods to spawn a large variety of aquarium fish.

After years of research and selling to the distributors, in 2016 he decided to focus on web sales, starting bioAquatiX, an online fish store that can simply reach anyone interested in the hobby. BioAquatiX goal is to bring healthy fish to your tank directly from the producer.

Andres is continuously working on improving breeding and working on new nano fish like livebearers, cichlids, clown loaches and invertebrates namely neocardiania shrimps.

We may request that you to pick up your order( hold for pick up) from your nearest FedEx Ship Center if the weather conditions are not favorable for the fish to spend extra time in a cold truck before delivery.

​You will receive the tracking number (on the same shipping day) before the fish are shipped out. Orders are dropped off at the FedEx Ship Center just in time before the shipment will be on road.

How do the fish travel?

The fish travel in plastic bags with clean water and pure oxygen. They are then placed in a Styrofoam insulation container which is protected by a cardboard box. We can also use heat or ice packs depending on the season. The fish can easily remain this way for over 48 hours. Because we want to make sure they arrive feeling strong, we ask that you be present when they are delivered to you. You should also plan for some time to place them in their new aquarium. Rest assured that all happy swimmers fly business class ;-)

What do I need to do when I receive my fish?

Inspect the box upon receipt. Make sure there is no significant visible damage to the box.

Open the box and inspect the fish. This is where you need to see if any are DOA. If there are any DOA please take pictures in the unopened bag.

Next you want to float the bags for 5-10 min. DO NOT OPEN the bags. DO NOT PUT water into the bags from your tank.

Place a net over a bucket and pour the fish into the net. Place the fish directly into your tank. DO NOT PLACE any of the shipping water into your tank.

Leave the lights off for several hours to let the new fish settle into their new home.

Do not feed until the fish look happy and active. Catfish will be more active with the lights off.

What should I do if I don’t receive my order confirmation or shipping info about my order?

If you will not receive your order confirmation, shipping info or something went bad with your order please email us at and we will do our best to help and find a way to make it right.

What if I receive a dead fish?

bioAquatiX has worked to improve the packing of live arrival, (we are still working and doing research to improve the packing of the fish), however there are too many factors that influence it and unfortunately we cannot control what happens to the shipment during transit. Which make it impossible to guarantee 100% lives arriving at any destinations, with any shipping service?

If you receive any dead fish (DOA), please don’t write a review before getting in contact with us. Just send a picture of the unopened bag containing the dead fish at and we will do our best to help and find a way to make it right. Fish will be replaced with the same fish on your next order or on our next shipping day, or we can refund you for the loss.

Free FedEx Priority Overnight on $160 order or more

Free FedEx Standard Overnight on $150 order or more

Free FedEx Ground (Florida Only) on $90 order or more

Free FedEx Second Day Air on $70 order on plants or any dry goods

  • Comment: My plants arrived swiftly and they're perfectly healthy. It would be nice if sellers wrote the plant name on each bag, but that's not a big deal. I would definitely order again!

  • Comment: Extremely pleased with the selection of shrimp I was sent, both colors and maturity wise with lots of juveniles to watch grow. Everything arrived fast, in great shape and was very well packaged. Even the Hornwort and Guppy Grass were much bigger portions than expected. I expect I will be doing additional business with BioAquatiX soon. Thank you for the excellent experience.

  • Comment: Beautiful, healthy fish arrived yesterday. Very well packed - triple bagged in a sturdy styrofoam cooler with heat packs. I ordered four blue angelfish and received seven. Score! I'd be happy to buy from them again. There was a delay in shipping probably due to the unsettled early spring weather. Bioaquatics won't ship livestock if the weather at the source or destination is not conducive to their successful transport. I like that policy. I have one small complaint: It would have been nice to get an email notification when the fish shipped. Update 06/01/2022: My double black angelfish are spawning this morning. That didn't take long!

  • Comment: I was at first concerned but between weather and USPS not shipping live plants and Animals I discovered for myself what the delay was. I received my plants and my shrimp in apparently good shape the roots on the Val are quite nice the stems seem healthy and though the shrimp washed out I will be able to tell better in a few days. The shrimp seem healthy. My only concern is better communication would be appreciated.

  • Comment: Got a three pack of java moss. Each portion was in it's own little cup about the size of a golf ball. In the tank it's about the size of a softball. The box came in with a damp side, so it looks like there was some moisture leakage. The moss looks great and I didn't notice any snails or other critters on it.
