Any moderately larger neighborhood market will have an aquarium store. Here's a bunch:

Visit the pet farm at Jalan kayu. There is a wide varity of goldfish to select.
Or option 2, hop into a cab and tell him u want to go to Serangoon north Ave 1, Rainbow Shop. They have lots of live stocks and they will also help u set up the fish tank.

If u have a car, take a drive down to pasir ris farmway... loads of fish farms to choose from with large varieties and prices are very reasonable as most of them are also suppliers to the smaller aquariums in the neighbourhood malls

Went to Rainbow and got our tank, fish and all the trimmings. We got 15 Guppy fish on Saturday afternoon - followed the instructions from the guy in the pet shop to a tee - even bought all the extras that he sold us - this and that liquid to put into tank etc etc.

All the fish are already DEAD!

Im a muderer... :o

So sorry to hear that but no worries.

First you have to stable the water condition. Let the new tank run for a week and settle down. Next, check the PH level. For guppies. its very easy to set up.

After the water is settled, get the fishes. Change of water temperature will kil the fishes. Best is to plac the whole bag into the tank and wait for 30 mins before you release the fish out of the new tank.
Do not feed for a day or 2 till the fishes are swimming calmly.

I have loads of guppies...they keep multiplying! :)
