Tropical Community Fish

Below is a list of the tropical community fish for sale that we keep in stock regularly. Many additional species will be available from time to time, but the list below represents species that are kept almost permanently in stock as part of our huge range. However, we still recommend phoning first if you will be travelling to visit us for a certain species!

Please note that although the species below are often included under the general banner of "community fish", this does not mean that they are all suitable to be mixed with each other, or that they will be suitable for any community tank. Our staff will be happy to advise you on suitable fish available to buy for your particular setup.
