Fish market in Mexico city

Mexico city is full of awesome little places here and there. It has so many places for so many things that I’m considering making it a hobby to explore the city. A few days ago, knowing that I love my fish tanks, my friend Luis Perez told me about the Fish Market where I could find anything I like for my fish tank.

We planned a visit on a Sunday and spent most of the day there. At the fish market you really can find anything you need or want for salt or fresh water tanks. The variety of species found is impressive and the prices are great too.

Not only crowded by fish, but also by people. Very hard to walk in this tiny crowded aisles.

You can find exotic species like a fresh water ray, alligators and even a Mexican axolotl (endangered species by the way, but oh well…Mexico)

There’s not only fish and tank gear, you can also find a few other pets around like dogs and birds.

I ended up buying some gear for my tank, a few neon tetras and a freshwater shrimp that looks awesome in the tank and will help clean it up too.

A visit to the Guadalajara Zoo part 4: The Aquarium

Finally after my long break from posting on this blog, here’s the last part of the Guadalajara Zoo visit, for the previous posts check part1 – Big animals, Part 2 – Birds and Part 3 – Reptiles. The last section visited was the aquarium. I have a special feeling
towards fish in the water, I don’t know exactly what it is. Maybe it’s
the calm sounds of water, maybe it’s the freedom fish express by
swimming anywhere. I really never thought about it before, but I enjoy
watching the fish.

Ever since I left my parents’ home and live my myself, I’ve always had
fish tanks at my place. Nowadays a home without a fish tanks doesn’t
feel like home for me.
