Corona Virus Update: The Wolf administration is requiring that travelers entering Pennsylvania from other countries and states, as well as Pennsylvanians who are returning home from other countries or states, have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to entering the Commonwealth or quarantine for 14 days upon entry into Pennsylvania. This means there will be no local pickups for anyone coming from out of PA until this order is lifted. Shipping by UPS will continue on Wednesdays only except when I need to change this day to Monday due to weather or holiday restrictions. Shipping by SWA Cargo should not be affected. Quarantine is not required for individuals who travel routinely for work or other critical purposes. See

ATTENTION: We do NOT operate a physical store location, but we do offer local pickups at a nearby location by appointment only.

We carry primarily community tank African Cichlids that can be mixed together to produce an extremely colorful tank. Please visit our compatibility chart for more information about mixing these type of fish in a community tank.

GOAL:  To carry, maintain, and sell one of the largest variety of high-quality African Cichlid Community Tank fish stock available in the Mid-Atlantic Region at reasonably affordable prices.

MISSION:  To provide quality African Cichlid Fish and a few other types of Aquarium fish to the hobbyist at a fair price and with excellent customer service.
