Restricted Species List

Due to their sensitive nature, fish listed below are not covered by our conditional livestock guarantee.

Animals on this list are either very difficult to keep in the home aquarium, or are highly susceptible to loss during shipping. These animals should only be kept by the advanced hobbyist or researcher. Customers requesting any of these animals waive any responsibility on the part of That Fish Place for dead arrivals or animal losses normally covered within our 5 day replacement period for unrestricted species. Beginner level aquarists or aquarists with newly established aquariums (less than six months old) should not purchase any species on this list.
