    To all shark lovers, you don't need to look else where. Jeremy is the most knowledgeable sharks/rays dealer I know of. His services and communications are excellent. He ensure his fishes are stable before shipping them out. I will definitely buy my next hounds and bat rays from Jeremy again.

  3. Beautiful fish 4 Star Review

    I love this shark!! The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because it’s so young right now and he’s doing a little too much vertical swimming. Other than than I absolutely love him! (After doing business with Jeremy and sharkandreef I won’t buy fish from anyone else!!)

  4. Totally satisfied 5 Star Review

    Jeremy is the best I have ever delt with. He is a true professional and puts the health of the animals first, and it shows. The banded shark that I ordered from him was perfect. Within 4 hours of him going into my tank he was eating. Swimming totally stress free and very active. I highly recommend for your purchases. Especially with sharks. I cannot wait to order my next one when they are in stock. A great addition to my other sharks.
