Ok I checked out the fish store on soi 88. Thanks for the directions Nokyai. I didnt find it very welcoming I'm afraid. It was very dark but things seemed clean and well kept. Just not a lot of stock or much variety. Lots of small guppy type fish and about a dozen koi. Anyway, I didnt find what I wanted.

I was not able to find the other shop mentioned by Chaspul. Going south from where? I thought it might be where the animal hospital is located but didnt see it there. I also couldnt see any sign of the T junction or 3218 so maybe this was the wrong spot entirely. Anyone able to help me pinpoint this shop?

Canal road runs basically N - S and at S end junctions with 3218. (Soi 70 to elephant village road). Going S shortly before this junction. It took me two tries to find it.
Open air market has green barriers when vacant. Shop is single frontage next to a small store and has cages outside.
Doubt if they will have what you want in stock but will obtain from BK, picture is worth a thousand words.
Or why not a trip to the weekend market in BK, you could spend a whole day looking around the fish area, its so massive?

Seems like Chaspul means the pet shop at Pae Mai at the start of the canal road.

It would be helpful if people specified marine or tropical. I used to keep and breed tropical (freshwater) but these are more simple than marine!

I went today for my usual stock up to the pet shop at Pai Mai and it is gone. Does anyone know where they moved too?

That is why I bumped up this thread. . .tropical fish stores/ pet stores seem to pop up and then fold with great regularity here.

There is (or was) a sign on the door. The shop moved up the Hua Hin - Huay Mongkol Road a bit. It's now directly opposite Hua Hin School.

TIT - it's not just tropical fish stores, its most businesses in Hua Hin. Some survive, but many businesses fold or change hands within a year. I've worked of the forum's bar maps for a few years, and the number of changes are unbelievable.

Same old thing all of the time. Somebody opens a business, and makes a success. Eventually a dozen businesses will open up taking a slice of the same pie. The pie just isn't big enough , and we end up with crumbs rather than slices.

Anyway, this is about tropical fish :oops: , so :offtopic: - sorry guys.
