The Fish Barn is a a Local Fish Store specializing in planted community aquariums. We stock a wide assortment of healthy freshwater tropical fish, invertebrates, and live plants as well as a big selection of dry goods like hardscaping materials, filtration & media, and fish medications. Whether you're brand new to fishkeeping or a veteran hobbyist, we're here to help keep your tank going strong (or set you up with a new one!)

Nearly all of the fish that go out for sale go through a treatment process in our quarantine room prior to being put out for sale to minimize the of possibility bacterial, protozoan, and parasitic infections, Our tanks are not run on a central system, and nets are sanitized between each use to prevent the transmission of disease. Tanks on our sales floor are not treated unless there is an active infection (in which case, we do not sell sick fish from that tank!)
