Fahaka tank - ready & waiting...

Post by MotherFahaka » Wed Nov 28, 2018 6:20 pm

Hi there,
We are running into some difficulties purchasing our fahaka - it seems our local store which we special order from hasn't been able to get the fahakas in. We're leary about ordering online ...just curious if anyone has any advice or suggestions for us. Thanks in advance!

I order fish online all the time, living in a small southern town with no good stores around. Just make sure you get a photo of the EXACT FISH you will be receiving.

I got both my puffers from The Wet Spot. Very happy with the quality and service there.

The only thing with online ordering is that shipping costs can sometimes end up more than the fish.

I've also ordered from The Wet Spot and never had a bad experience. They usually have tank-raised fahakas for about $14 if I remember correctly, and they have something like a $24 or $25 minimum, so you may have to get another fish for a different tank while you are at it :). I've also had great success with Wesley Wong on FB, but I don't know if he stocks fahakas.
