At Dan's Fish, we genuinely care for our fish and our customers. The fish currently for sale here have been in our care for at least 2 weeks (often longer) and have been carefully quarantined, medicated, and acclimated to aquarium life and foods.

If you would like to see our fishroom and get a feel for how we do things here, please visit our Youtube channel at

We have been keeping, breeding, importing, and shipping fish to satisfied customers since the early 1990's. We take great pride in our tried-and-true shipping methods and confidently guarantee that our fish will arrive alive. Here's a video of how we ship our fish:

So, come on in and look around. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at We hope you enjoy your visit!!!



It is our responsibility to properly prepare the fish for shipping, select visibly healthy stock, and pack the fish according to best practices before we send them to our customers.


It is our customers' responsibility to have an appropriate, stable environment ready for the fish and to transfer the fish from the shipping package to said environment promptly upon the fishes arrival. This cannot be done without first obtaining knowledge about the needs of the fish being purchased. At Dan's Fish, we advocate for responsible pet care. The single most important thing a person can do in order to be a responsible fish owner is to educate themselves about the animals they intend to keep and have an appropriate environment cycled and ready for said fish well before the fish arrive. We encourage our customers to become knowledgeable about any animal they wish to purchase and consider it a customer's responsibility to do so. There is usually ample information online about the fish sold at Dan's Fish. Please seek it out before purchasing any of our animals. If you do, the fish will have a better quality of life and you will get much more enjoyment out of them.


While Dan's Fish ALWAYS guarantees our fish will arrive alive, if the fish sit around in the shipping package for any length of time after delivery, their health may suffer. To prevent this, we require a picture of any deceased fish in the unopened bag be emailed to us at within one hour of delivery. The pic must clearly show the fish in the unopened bag. After an hour, we assume the fish were neglected on a sunny or snowy porch and are deceased as a result. Failure to send the required picture within one hour of delivery voids all guarantees and refunds.

Please understand that, while we do everything we can to get your fish to you promptly, once they are sent, they are out of our direct care. We do not control the post and cannot guarantee when the fish will arrive. However, we pack the fish carefully and guarantee live arrival even if the fish are delayed in the post.

Providing Dan's Fish with an incorrect or incomplete mailing address at checkout voids all guarantees and all refunds. WE CAN'T DIG THROUGH EMAILS FOR YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS. WE WILL SHIP THESE FISH TO THE ADDRESS PROVIDED AT CHECKOUT/PAYMENT, SO PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE CHECK TO MAKE SURE IT IS CORRECT!!!


In a case where a customer provided Dan's Fish with the correct shipping address in the corresponding field during checkout, and;

A deceased fish is delivered to the customer, and;

The customer emails a digital picture clearly showing the deceased fish in its sealed, unopened bag to within an hour of delivery of the fish to the customer;

Then Dan's Fish will gladly reship or refund any losses. Dan's Fish reserves the right to choose whether to reship or refund. In the case of a refund, we will also refund any prorated shipping charges which correspond to the lost item.

Our goal is to grow this hobby by sending healthy fish to happy customers. Most of our customers never have any reason to claim a refund, but, if the need arises, please know that we will take prompt action to rectify the situation as outlined above.


WE SHIP ON MONDAYS unless Monday is a holiday, in which case we ship on TUESDAY. We do not ship during major holiday seasons such as Christmas because the weather is cold and mail is often delayed. The payment deadline for a given week's shipment is midnight the Friday before shipping, as this gives us a couple of days to prepare the fish for transit. This preparation time is non-negotiable as it is necessary in order to ensure the safety of our fish during shipping.

We provide you with a tracking number when the fish are shipped so you will know when they arrive and can take prompt care of their needs.


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at

  • Comment: Dan has been the easiest seller to do business with. He makes himself available and answers questions thoroughly. He shipped me several fish on Monday, but USPS didn't deliver my package until today, Friday. All of the fish arrived alive and well. That only happened because Dan's high standards in shipping. His process ensured that my fish arrived alive...even if USPS is sometimes slow. Thank you very much Dan! Job well done!!

  • Comment: Dans Fish is First Class! Truly his fish are healthy, and full of life! Everytime I buy from him I know I'll be getting the best! His shipping is best in the business! I've bought tons of fish through the mail and none could be packaged better, In fact once I ordered from Dan (the very first time) my shipping method completely changed. He cares so much about his customers that they always become friends! Thanks once again, Dan!

  • Comment: I had a great experience ordering with Dan in the winter of 2018; the fish showed up healthy and immediately started taking flake foods. What convinced me to order from him as opposed to other online dealers is Dan's dedication to disease treatment and his willingness to feed his fish a broad diet. I will be a return customer, once I have the tank space!!!

  • Comment: Couldn't be happier with the experience from Dan's Fish. Once I placed the order I was in constant contact with Dan until the day the fish arrived. The packing is by far the best I've seen, fish arrived in there own bag with no leaks, two heat packs, and perfectly placed in the box. I will be a repeat customer!

  • Comment: I will definitely be buying from Dan's Fish again. We ordered fish on Saturday, they shipped out Monday and were at our front door 11am Tuesday. They were packed exceptionally well with obvious great care. The fish are doing great. Dan responded quickly everytime with any questions we had. Awesome experience! 5 star service all the way.

  • Comment: Dan's packing is excellent! All the fish arrived happy, healthy and on time (heat pack still warm)... even the wild collected adults! The time and care he takes to quarantine, treat, breed and/or grow out fish before selling them is clearly evident. This is my second order from Dan's Fish and I'm nothing but satisfied with my experience.
