Recommendations for Buying 500-2000 Rummy Nose Tetra


Recommended Posts



I like putting tons of tiny fish in massive aquariums. Does anyone have recommendations/experiences with vendors when purchasing large amounts of tiny fish at a time?

I am currently paying about 4$/ per cardinal or rummynose tetra and I would like to cut that cost significantly.

I found a vendor in California called Uncle Sams Discus and Wholesale that offers 500 Rummy Nose for 350$ Which seems insane. I can’t find many details or reviews about their wholesale side of business.

My water is moderately hard but I haven’t found any bulk sellers in Florida.

I have bought from Aqua Huna alot but their water is soft and sensitive fish like Rummy Nose have massive casualties when they transition to hard. Also 3 day shipping seems to massively increase casualties vs UPS overnight. I currently have best success with imperial tropicals in Florida but Rummynose are 4$ each and they only stock <100 at any one time.

There are some places near me (Florida) that may be able to fulfill your order.  The catch is they are wholesalers and will want you to be a fish store or a registered fish business/reseller/wholesaler/dealer

One you mentioned is imperial tropicals which is a farm that also sells direct to customers.

Others that are near me would be segrest farms or 5d tropical. These are huge vendors.

There is a local wholesaler near me, they dont have a website but you may be able to call them and arrange the import/shipment. His business is "quality goldfish inc" in clearwater florida.  He is very helpful and is more likely to work with you vs the big vendors.
