What Our Clients Say

I recently won an exotic cichlid from Per in a raffle in Texas Fish Keepers Facebook group. I was personally contacted by the owner to discuss shipping which was included- and to ensure there was any questions and or concerns. He answered all my questions within 5 minutes. He gave me a lot of knowledge. His shipping was superb. Excellently packed, fish were bright and alive when arrived. He checked in with me later on day of arrival to check in on quality and to ensure we are happy.

Per is a professional, intelligent, and a great friend of the fish!
