Rare Aquarium Fish


By definition rare aquarium fish should be hard to find.
What better place to track down that exclusive aquarium specimen than on the internet? On this page you can read about the qualities of rare fish and browse a selection available to buy.

What Makes A Fish Rare?


How rare a fish is has it's origins in supply and demand along with how difficult specimens are to reproduce. Fish rarity often works in a cycle where breeders concentrate on lucrative species until the market demand is met and the price begins to drop.

Other fish are rare because they are only recently introduced to the fish trade. Some breeders that produce a new variety will try to limit the ability to other breeders. This is often done by releasing only one of the two sexes for sale.

Why People Choose Rare Fish


Rare fish are preferred by the fish owner with a passion for the exotic. The fishkeeper with an eye for the unusual will tend to select their aquarium contents from the rarer varieties on offer. Others buy them to breed with in the hope that they can also sell the rare species before the market is saturated. Some people seek out rare fish in an effort to preserve those species that are in danger of extinction within the fish trade or their native environment.
