Shop With Foxy Saltwater Tropical Fish And Avoid The Middle Man!
Welcome to Foxy Saltwater Tropicals! We are a family run business located in the Florida Keys. My name is Jason Fox (that's me up above). I own and operate Foxy Saltwater Tropicals with the help my wife of over 20 years, Amy Fox; as well as with the help of our teammates Arynne and Codey. I grew up in the Florida Keys, and you could say that I am addicted to the ocean. My undying love for the ocean has manifested into a successful marine life business! It has allowed me to do what I love while also helping fellow aquarium hobbyists around the United States fill their tanks with high quality, hand collected marine life!
About 90% of our Atlantic products are hand collected by our team. This is important as it puts less stress on the marine life. They go from the ocean, to our holding tanks, and finally to your door. Our fish are kept in medicated systems treated with Coppersafe and Nitrofuracin Green. These medicines help to prevent any potential bacterial infections. We typically hold our fish for 7-10 days prior to shipping.
Other businesses may have harvested their fish with harmful chemicals, mistreated them, and starved them so they can ship from wholesaler to wholesaler, then to your local fish store and eventually to you. Each of those steps are tough on the marine life. Cutting out the middleman gives marine life a much higher rate of survival.
We have just recently started importing some items that are listed for sale on our website as well. We are excited to grow our selection and to give our client's more options for their tanks!
I Promise I Am Not Ignoring Your Emails
Please be aware that most days I am underwater collecting marine life. So if you call or email several times, you are not being ignored by a customer service department. I will try my best to return the email that night or early next morning. In some cases it may take longer but if it’s been a few days, there may have been a problem, so please reach out to me again. Running a direct to consumer business is time consuming, but worth it. I spend a lot of time collecting marine life, maintaining all the tanks, corresponding with customers, and packing all the orders. I enjoy what I do and it consumes me 7 days a week. For me, the old adage applies, IF you like what you do, it's not exactly work. I do truly care about my customers and marine life. I hope you choose Foxy Saltwater Tropical Fish because I am involved in every step, from catching to inspecting it, and for packing it for you.
Thank you for trusting us for your aquarium needs!
