Welcome to Batfish Aquatics, the premiere provider of unusual, rare, and quality aquarium fishes, aquarium plants, and other animals. We are located in the Greater Washington, DC area and service the entire United States. We specialize in unique aquarium fishes that you can often find nowhere else.
Our warehouse facility houses over 300 aquariums filled with unusual fishes. We ship throughout the country, year round, direct to your doorstep. We also offer retail hours by appointment, be sure to Contact Us to make an appointment. Check out our full selection using the links above!
We specialise in those fishes you won't find anywhere else, such as rare species of Betta, Apistogramma, unique and interesting tetras, danios, cyprinids, corydoras, and loricarids! In addition to freshwater fish, we carry a small selection of aquatic plants, freshwater invertebrates, and marine fishes and invertebrates. We like to say that we carry "interesting" fish -- we stock whatever strikes us as being "cool" this week.
You'll often find Batfish Aquatics at various aquarium shows and events throughout the year. Check out this calendar of events to meet Batfish! Events in BOLD indicate I'll be speaking. If you're interested in having Batfish as a vendor at your event, or having me speak at a local aquarium club, please send an e-mail.
