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.

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.

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!

Kuhli Loach

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.

Thumbs Up

It was my first-time shopping at Splashy Fish. I needed to cure a mild case of ick in the tank. The staff were very helpful and the product did the trick. I'll shop there again when needed!


Fast shipping and received a happy and healthy betta!
