A fish shop, not a relative. Uncle Ned’s Fish Factory is found in quiet Millis, MA, and we decided to visit on a rainy Saturday afternoon. Actually, it poured, a welcome relief from the unbearable humidity New England experienced the days before. Beautiful water plants, lilies and the like, welcomed us as we walked into the non-pretentious fish lovers’ haven.
Renowned for its amazing cichlid collection, Uncle Ned’s is for the fish connoisseur, and a fish geek’s dream. In addition to the diverse cichlid availability, the choices for koi are varied, with white koi dancing with the raindrops in their huge tubs outside, or the bigger long finned ones swimming center stage inside the premises.
What really impressed me, however, is that I did not see any unhealthy fish, or a forgotten corpse floating in any tank corners. That testifies to the integrity of Uncle Ned’s, and their dedication and care to our finned friends. If you are in the area, it’s definitely worth the trip.
