Splashy Fish

founded by hobbyist run with a passion

Splashy Fish, born in 2020, is a testament to the visionary journey of Nguyen Le, an enthusiast with over 10 years of expertise in freshwater aquariums, specialized aquascaping design, and the artful breeding of betta and guppies. What began as a personal hobby evolved into a thriving aquatic haven, shaped by a deep-seated commitment to quality and an unwavering passion for aquatic life.

Our Origin Story:

Before the inception of Splashy Fish, Nguyen Le immersed himself in the world of bettas and guppies, breeding these captivating species as a hobbyist. Selling to local customers and shipping to enthusiasts out-of-state, Nguyen covered some breeding costs, fueled by a determination to take his love for aquatics to the next level. In a bold move, he sold all his aquariums, initiating Splashy Fish as a side hustle, and marking the beginning of a remarkable journey.

Pandemic Pivots:

The turning point arrived with the onset of the pandemic, as people sought solace in the beauty of aquatic life while staying home. Seizing this opportunity, Nguyen transitioned from his corporate job to dedicate himself entirely to Splashy Fish. He personally designed the website, collaborating with local and international breeders to source the highest quality fish and aquarium plants.

From Garage to Grandeur:

What started in a humble garage with 10 aquariums of 10 gallons each blossomed into a 1000+ gallons aquarium store—a testament to our continuous growth. At Splashy Fish, each tank houses only one species of fish, ensuring a proper quarantine process, meticulous care, and preventing unwanted crossbreeding.

Our Mission:

Splashy Fish's mission is to provide you, our cherished customers, with more than just aquatic companions. We strive to impart proper knowledge, offering the highest quality live freshwater fish, freshwater shrimps, aquatic plants, premium fish foods, and the finest aquarium supplies and accessories. Our commitment is to keep your aquatic friends not just happy but thriving.

Educational Endeavors:

Navigate our knowledge blogs, spanning beginner guides for aquarium initiation to advanced care guides tailored for specific fish types. Our hope is that these resources empower you to create an ideal ecosystem, ensuring the happiness and well-being of your aquatic companions.

Future Horizons:

As Splashy Fish continues to evolve, we set our sights on new horizons. An exciting development is our YouTube channel, where we plan to showcase firsthand knowledge, connecting with you on a more personal level.

Global Expansion:

In 2022, we embarked on an ambitious journey, establishing a small farm overseas. This strategic move allows us to control our supply chain, particularly for popular species like betta fish, guppies, tetras, discus, and freshwater shrimp. This expansion reinforces our commitment to providing you with the highest quality aquatic specimens.

A Heartfelt Thank You:

To our loyal customers, we extend our sincere appreciation for being part of our small business journey. You are the heartbeat of Splashy Fish, and we are grateful for your role in the success and growth of our aquatic venture. Thank you for being an integral part of the Splashy Fish family.

I love my betta! I got exactly what I saw on the internet when I ordered it. He is beautiful. I wish I could buy more

Updated photo of how gorgeous she is becoming

I wanted to share an updated photo of how gorgeous she has become. I am so happy with her. Great personality and super beautiful.

Christina Oneill

Love the fish. They have a beautiful shimmer to them.

Great Betta

I’ve a GB similar color to this. He’s doing great and gorgeous

Amazing quality

As a nano aquarist I love my nano fish and shrimp and this store has an amazing selection. Especially shrimp, bought these wine red caridina and they’re stunning! The owner of this store definitely knows his shrimp, only great quality.

Great shop

High quality fish and great advice

The driftwoods are great, perfect for my tank

RO Water for a balanced aquarium

I live in an area with crappy tap water (extremely high GH, 0 KH and ~5 pH). Mixing in a few buckets of RO water for water changes occasionally helps keep my aquarium balanced and is easy to pick up at the shop.

Healthy and active little fish.

Helpful staff got me some healthy and active platies, still doing well.

Healthiest Java Fern I've ever seen

Absolutely gorgeous Java Fern. I don't think I've seen any as green as these in a while. Will definitely get a few more in the future

Healthy Snails

My nerites are doing fantastic and I actually love their slightly smaller size, as they don't lay eggs. Overall very satisfied

Healthy and Happy

Healthy, high-grade shrimp for a reasonable price! They are doing fantastic in my tank and have even started breeding!

Underrated Fish

Love my dwarf rasboras! Often overshadowed by their more popular cousins (chili rasboras), these guys are boisterous and friendly, swimming right up to the front of the tank whenever I walk by. I've tried many times to get chili rasboras in LFS near me, but they always seem to have some trouble. Not these guys though! They seem hardier and they school more than the chilis as well!

Works great

My fish and crayfish both eat these up. The only thing I'd prefer is if the pieces were available in a smaller size, but it isnt too hard to chop these into quarters.

Great store and nice staff.

Gorgeous and healthy female Betta

I'm very happy with my female Betta. She arrived today. I let her settle in for a few hours with the light off. She kept swimming around. I slowing started to increase the lights. She ate bloodworms right away. She is gorgeous, healthy, friendly and I am very happy. There is a BIG difference in the quality of these Bettas compared to a Petco or PetSmart. You could tell mine was well taken care of. Thank you so much! I'm not much into naming fish, but I keep calling her Ms. Splashy. She's already made friends with the Corydora that's been lonely in the tank. Thank you again!

Beautiful Broad Leaf Plant

The broad leaf Anubias looks phenomenal in my home aquarium. The price point is amazing for such a large healthy plant that is grown submerged at the shop. Not a single sign of melt in my aquarium.

Great Fish and Store

This is my second Betta I've purchased from Splashy Fish and I couldn't be more pleased with them. This guy is super cool and has awesome markings......he is settling well into his new tank. I highly recommend them for all things fish!

Love this site.

Fish is beautiful and healthy. The package was well packaged and shipped quickly.


Beautiful snails. They are a nice asset to tank.

Well packaged but he was dead upon arrival.

Healthy and Handsome.

The Betta I received looked just as handsome as he did in his photo as when I opened the box. It was also perfectly packaged and contained instructions on how to acclimate the fish.

Frozen Fish Food

Excellent product and great selection at a reasonable price…

Zebra Nerite Snails
Barbara Stein

If I could give zero stars I would. All snails arrived dead.

Awesome Fish and Service!

What an awesome fish, and the staff answered my questions over the phone, and the fish was the exact fish shown in the video. He is doing great in my planted tank, and I will definitely be ordering from Splashy Fish again!
