Uncle Ned's Fish Factory is located in Millis Massachusetts and is one of the New England Area's largest and most devoted tropical fish retailers. We have been dealing in rare and unusual tropical freshwater, and pond fish for over 15 years. Owner Ned Bowers has been working with fish all his life and brings his passion for the aquarium hobby to the store in the form of our unique, diverse, and healthy selection of fish. To learn more about the store, to see our current livestock listings and equiptment specials, and to participate in active discussions please visit our Forums.



Ned got his start in the fish business by importing and selling African Cichlids. These beginnings are still evident at Uncle Ned’s as we maintain one of the most diverse selections of African and South American Cichlids in New England.

At the store you will regularly find:

Rare Tropicals:

We do, of course, carry most of the common community fish, but we also use our connections in East and West Africa, South and Central America, and South East Asia, to bring in as many Rare and New species as possible. These include unusual members of the Cichlids, Tetras, Barbs, Catfish, Eels, Monster fish, and a multitude of other groups. Some examples include rare new species of West African Congo Tetra, large rare Polypterus, newly discovered South American Tetras, and a large list of fancy Plecos.

KOI and Pond Fish:

We have been carrying Koi and Goldfish for years, but have recently stepped it up a notch and began importing direct from Japan. Every spring you will find a selection of true Japanese Koi at Uncle Ned’s. Ned is able to hand pick monster koi for import as well as batches of smaller Ogon, Kohaku, Sanke, Showa, and a multitude of other breeds. We do also offer domestic koi, but have found the quality and health of our Japanese imports unbeatable.


In the spring and summer we turn our parking lot into a small aquatic nursery with a large selection of hardy and tropical water lilies, marginals, and oxygenator plants. Throughout the year we are stocked with a wide variety of indoor aquarium plants, including, among others, many species of Aponogeton, Anubias, and Cryptocoryne.

This includes specialty items such as lighting, drilled tanks, and pond liners as well as all the basics of aquarium maintenance.
