Live Fish for Sale NZ

Wellington Marine: Live Fish for Sale in NZ

Calling all reefers: We’ve got live fish for sale in NZ! Since the lockdown last year, the joys of keeping fish seems to have re-emerged. Having a whole live underwater eco-system in your home, be it in the lounge or your bedroom, can provide hours of entertainment and learning, and for collectors, getting that one fish you’ve always dreamed of having is priceless.

Unfortunately, NZ is not really awash with companies with live fish for sale. While fish tanks and accessories are widely available for import, we’ve been mainly lacking in a local resource – until now, that is. We offer the widest range of livestock, fish tanks, and accessories to suit every budget.

What You Should Know About Live Fish for Sale

Contrary to popular belief, keeping and maintaining a saltwater fish tank is not all that difficult. There are a few things that potential aquarists should be aware of, though. Luckily, we are always here to help you with whatever questions you may have regarding the maintenance of your tank and the wellbeing of your fish.

  • Have you ever heard that fish will only grow according to the size of their tank? Don’t fall into that trap. It has caused many headaches for tank owners over the years and even more distress and suffering for their fish. The size of the tank is not at all related to how large your fish will grow. Make sure you know what you are buying.
  • Not all species get along. Before buying fish for your newly established saltwater eco-system, make sure that the fish you are planning to house are compatible with each other, or one species may end up becoming dinner for the other. We recommend researching the type of ocean ecosystem you are planning and buying your fish accordingly.
  • While keeping a saltwater fish tank requires a little knowledge of water chemistry, it is not more difficult than keeping a freshwater aquarium. This may have been true in years gone by, but you can easily keep a saltwater tank without any previous experience with modern equipment.
