TropicalLiveFishStore.com specializes in importing and housing exotic freshwater species. Aquarium Fish Sale groups these “oddballs” by region: African, South American, and Asian. AFS avoids collecting species known to be harvested improperly, particularly in the African region. Certain species, such as Arapaima, are endangered in the wild and TFS only imports these species through CITES certification to ensure future sustainability.
Asian oddballs are imported from Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, and Vietnam.
