At Mainely Fish, we care for our fish and our customers. Hobbyist bred and raised. I take great pride in my home bred fish. The fish currently for sale have been bred and raised by me .

My main goal is to breed healthy fish and sell at an affordable price.

So, come on in and look around. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at

I 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 fish’s arrival. This cannot be done without first obtaining knowledge about the needs of the fish being purchased. At Mainely 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 Mainely 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 Mainely 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 UPS 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 shipping.

Providing Mainely 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 Mainely 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 Mainely Fish will gladly reship or refund any losses. Mainely 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.


All fish are bagged 1 fish per bag. Heat sealed then Bagged again in a heat seal bag.

We will contact you via email after you order with a shipping plan. This email is usually sent out the day after you order, although it can be 2 days during weekends, holidays, and the like. We will 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: Amazing experience dealing with Mainely Fish! To my surprise the fish room was only 15 minutes from my home. He was very polite and knowledgeable. All his fish are very healthy and well colored. Tanks are well maintained and a joy to see. I highly recommend Mainely Fish and can't wait for my next experience.
