We understand that even the most experienced fish-keepers run into problems. There are many diseases that plague fish, and the medications for those illnesses can be very confusing. We recommend and encourage you to come in with a water sample and we’ll walk you through what could be happening with your tank, perform a free water test, and give you problem-solving solutions or suggest specific medications.
The Wet Spot staff members all enjoy fish at their homes, and because of this our team has a lot of hands-on practical knowledge about how to operate and maintain aquariums. We want you to have a positive experience with your fish, be it a bowl setup or a 200 gallon aquarium. Our enthusiasm and our expertise, coupled with our broad selection means that here at The Wet Spot we have everything you need to be successful with your freshwater aquarium and keep it running smoothly.
