Tannin Live!

 

Of all of the elements that we include in our aquariums, none are more important than the stars of the show- our fishes! If you ask almost any hobbyist, they’ll tell you that what got them into the hobby to begin with was…fish. We’re no different, and that’s why we’ve curated a collection of fishes that we think you’ll love. Our fishes are conscientiously sourced and hand-caught by some of the best in the industry, specifically for us. With the shortest “chain of custody” possible from collector to customer, you’ll notice the difference right away, with fishes that are more relaxed, and in better overall condition. We offer many fishes in small groups only- because that's the way they live in their natural habitats. Our partner, noted collector, explorer, and author, Mike Tuccinardi, personally selects each and every fish in our collection, and knows the source, habitat, and species intimately. 

Our selection is curated specifically for the types of aquariums our customers maintain. We don't try to have every fish out there. We offer fishes we feel will be perfect for our customers' interests. Many are specially selected to be compatible with blackwater and brackish botanical-influenced aquariums, carefully acclimated in conditions similar to what you’ll be providing them, and are active, healthy, and feeding before they leave our partner facility in Boulder, CO.

Every fish is inspected for health, color, and quality...and we only ship using Fed Ex Priority Overnight shipping. Yes, it's more expensive than other, slower methods, but we don't take chances with precious livestock. Neither should you. Our customers have come to rely on us for high standards with our botanicals, and can expect the same level of diligence with our fishes. When you purchase a fish from us, you will also enjoy the peace of mind provided by a 14-day, no-questions-asked guarantee. Please see our "Shipping and Handling" section for more details on our livestock guarantee.
