About Splashy Fish

Splashy Fish was founded in 2020 pre-pandemic by Nguyen Le. Nguyen has 10+ years of experience in freshwater aquarium specialized aqua scaping design, breeding betta, and guppies. Before founding Splashy Fish, Nguyen bred bettas and guppies as a hobbyist and sell them to local customers and ship them to out-of-state customers to cover some cost of breeding. He wants to take his hobbyist to the next level and decided to sell all his aquariums and started this business as a side hustle business. Splashy Fish was originally sold on the E-bay platform to gain customers. Once the pandemic hit, everyone stayed home and the interest in the hobby grow. Nguyen then quit his cooperate job and focus on Splashy Fish full time. Nguyen self-designed the website, partnering with local breeders and international breeders to source the highest quality of fish and aquarium plants.

Splashy Fish started in a garage with 10 aquariums of 10 gallons, later grow to 1000+ gallons aquarium store and continue to grow bigger. We only put one species of fish per tank to ensure proper quarantine process, care and prevent unwanted cross breeding.

Great Hiders, Nice Deep Red

Picked up 10+1 a little over a week ago. Despite their nice deep red color, I've only been able to see at most 5 at one time in my tank. They seem to enjoy hiding in the Java Moss and Hornwort.

Great fish & great customer service.

Healthy Blue crayfish from SplashyFish

All four Blue crayfish is healthy and even molted the other day. I'm very happy with my purchase. Lets support our local Fish Store who's staff are very knowledgeable and the owner is very hands-on and always ready to answer all your questions. Kudos to all staff.

Full gold guppies

I'm very pleased with my purchase. The guppies are very active and healthy. They look perfect. I enjoyed my visit to the Splashy Fish shop and look forward to returning to purchase more fishes of various species. I'm extremely happy to find an aquarium shop of such high quality in the Northern Virginia area. The service was also excellent.


I went in person at the location a few weeks ago. These guppys look amazing! The pictures dont do them Justice, including the females as well. Very healthy fish, and everyone was very nice and knowledgeable as well. Always love to see it!

Great Shrimp Food

The shrimp love it and it doesn’t foul the water. Plus, they’re getting calcium to help with their molts!

Great help

Willing to talk and trouble shoot issue with my tank. Prices were good and will be back!

Exceeds Expectation!

The quality of not only this Betta fish, but the other species of fish I have purchased from the team over at Splasy Fish has really exceeded my expectations. You can tell that they know exactly how to raise and nurture their fish. Currently experiencing cold weather where I am from in NJ (early February) and I have received my fish in excellent condition due to how they package them up before shipping. My betta was smaller than I expected which is great since I only have a 1 gallon at the moment (upgrading next week), but he is super active which is exactly what you want to see in a betta. You’re able to see exactly how active his on their listing video, but he was way more than I expected once I added him to his new home. From the beginning he had all the traits you’d want in a betta. Additionally, I enjoy training my betta’s and this betta already seemed as if he were well trained as he was already passing all of my basic tests for him. This has been a great experience and would definitely recommend!

Hardy Kuhlis!

I bought 5 kuhli loaches in person! I've always had bad luck with kuhlis in the past, but I'm happy to share that a year later, I still have my kuhlis growing and thriving in my tank! Thanks Splashy Fish!

Awesome Betta, but...

Ordered a different betta and didn't ship after two weeks (all the while, my bank account had already been charged for the fish and shipping). Called a few times and was not able to get in touch. Ended up getting in touch via the chat on the website. They answered quick saying the fish wasn't healthy enough to ship.

I totally understand not being able to ship an unhealthy fish as shipping is very stressful. However, I wish Splashy fish would have reached out to me, not the other way around. After getting in touch with them, they allowed me to pick a new betta to have shipped. Luckily H06 (aka Tod) was avaliable and healthy to ship. They shipped him the next day and he arrived in 2 days.

Tod is very happy and healthy and after a few days of getting situated in his new home, he is very vibrant. He is very interactive as well. Overall very happy with the fish, but communications could have been better.
