Ordered twice in 2 weeks. First order was for 5 juvie P.elegans "yellow tail acei", and 5 L. Caeruleus "yellow lab." Sent 1 acei free of charge, so 6 total. =o)> Second order was for 12 P demasoni, and 2 Ancistrus Cirrhosus "Bristlenose plecos." All arrived healthy, hungry and curious.
I am a first time ciclid buyer and Dave was very helpful. There was a delay in their shipment (Fedex's problem) and Dave personally called to let me know he would stand behind them if they died or were fatally injured. All were fine due to his good packing.
This was my first time doing online shopping for any fish, Dave's had everything I wanted and just could not beat the price, the other place I was considering purchasing from was over $150 more for the same fish and quantity. Fish look great, packaged very well, when I need anything else, he has earned a repeat customer.
"First time buying online and couldn't be happier!"
Wow, I was VERY impressed with Dave's Rare fish. I ordered 12 demasoni 1+ F1's, 6 rusties, and 8 electric yellows. All the fish arrived alive and well. They are very well colored for their age. I can tell the rusties are a good strain as one of them is already sporting a nice purple hue. He even gave me a bonus Demasoni and Rusty. He did an excellent job of grouping as well. He included some demasoni that were a little bigger and one gorgeous male. he did the same with the other two species. I didn't receive just all same looking same size fish, but paid that way. Thanks so much! My family loves the fish! He was also very helpful and reassuring regarding my purchase and concerns regarding buying so many at once for a new tank. I will buy fish from him in the future and likely will not even consider anywhere else. Thanks again!
I got back into keeping African Cichlids after a long absence from the hobby(kids, college for kids, etc.). I found out about Dave's through a club I joined--East Coast Cichlids. I have obtained fish from Dave a few times and been very impressed and happy with the quality of the fish I've received and his expert handling of the process, from my ordering through their arrival. I don't hesitate to refer fellow hobbyists to Dave and know I will order from him in the future.
"Dave is one of the top African cichlid vendors in the US!"
Dave's fish are top notch. He always maintains an extensive stock list. Fish are well packed and Dave accurately communicates shipping details. I will not hesitate to purchase fish from Dave in the future.
Dave always has the best selection of fish available and is super helpful. He always takes his time to answer any questions I have. I have never been disappointed with the quality of his fish and wouldn't hesitate to buy fish from him again!
I've bought malawi and tang from Dave 4-5 times. He has rare & common species, fish are always in top-notch shape and well packed. He is always patient and willing to talk fish...Just a good guy to deal with.
I was told by a friend of mine in NJ that Dave is his favorite person to buy fish from. I ordered a FULL box of fish. Beautiful Mbuna. Healthy Mbuna. A 125 gallon now filled with Mbuna. 32 fish in all. Dave had the fish shipped right to my door and it was worth it. I ordered 6 Cynotilapia sp. ''Lion'' Lion's Cove. 8 Metriaclima sp. ''Hajomaylandi Pombo'' Pombo Rocks. 6 Pseudotropheus sp. ''Williamsi North'' Makonde. 6 Tropheops sp. ''Elongatus Boadzulu'' Kanchedza Island and 6 Labeotropheus fuelleborni ''Marmalade Cat''. I just received Dave's email about the most recent arrivals and now I need another tank. Thank you very much Dave.
