Sean is the new owner and he has done a great job stocking and keeping a great variety of fish. He has a wealth of knowledge and is very helpful. I found his pricing to be reasonable. I have bought 6 fish from him and am buying 6 more this weekend. Atlantis is the only place to buy Cichlids!
Just made my first wild purchase through Atlantis. Weather was very hot and I had some concerns about shipping all the way across county. Jon at Atlantis worked with me and we came up with a shipping plan. Fish arrived right on time and in great health. Loving my new wilds and will look to Atlantis again because the fish and the service are spectacular!!!
Very prompt in responding to all of my email inquiries. Held fish until my tank was fully setup and ready for the fish. Ordered 7 Multi's and recieved 8 that were in excellent shape and extremely healthy. A few days later and all fish are still doing great. Would recommend and will be buying from again in the future.
I am lucky enough to be within 1:15 of their NY site. I have been stocking an all male Peacock tank and have found their prices and their fish to be the best. In fact I was at a higher end retailer paying 2.5 times Atlantis's price when their truck rolled in to drop of a dozen boxes of fish (won't make that mistake again). When they say 4"-5" fish, they actually underestimate. Can't beat the price or the quality
Aside from FedEx doing their best to botch this delivery, Atlantis delivered outstanding specimens that were the promised size, sex and quality. I got a personal call from Jon to set up delivery and he made me comfortable with my first fish shipment ever. Picked up 5 large male Haps from him, and they were all at least the size he promised, some even a bit larger (thanks Jon)! Would certainly recommend to anyone, especially first timers. Came packed very well also (aside from FedEx destroying the box). Had enough heat packs to keep the fish bag water at 70+ degrees, even in 20 degree January Maryland weather. I thought "disaster ahead" when I saw the crushed box, but was then pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and saw a super happy Placidochromis Electra looking at me! 5/5 stars. I will certainly shop again with Atlantis.
WOW was the first word to come to my mind when I opened the shipping box. The fish were beautiful, especially the NGARA Flame Tail. Jon was great. Great communication throughout. Huge selection and good prices. I will definitely do business with them again.
Visited Atlantis NY location and purchased 2 Male Peacocks. Selection was impressive and all fish appeared to be in excellent condition. The facility was clean and organized with several hundred it seemed tanks in operation. Very very knowlegeable staff and made sure I received the best specimen available of each fish. I assure you these fish are kept in tanks not overcrowded and properly. I will make another trip again in a few weeks, now after seeing what they're all about, I'll call to reserve via phone knowing the stock is top notch.
I ordered from Atlantis some WC Julidochromis Marlieri last week. The fish arrived well packaged and looked great! This is my first time I have purchased from Atlantis, but it won't be my last. They responded promptly to my emails and was more than happy to discuss options over the phone. Very courteous and professional. Best of all, fish are awesome and settling in new home well! Thank you Atlantis!
Simply put, Atlantis has it all. First off, Peter took his time answering every question I had about anything and everything. I even changed my order 3 times(called him 5 times) and he was a perfect gentleman every step of the way. He never sounded aggravated one bit. His knowledge of the fish he deals with is exceptional as well. I could go on-and-on but I think you get the picture. Now for the fish I received, AMAZING! I am doing an all male Peacock tank and wanted to make sure what I was getting were male. Well, the fish are all about 3-3.5" and have beautiful color already(Ruby Red, Maylandi Sulferhead, Lemon Jake, Red Shoulder). His packing job was excellent. They had to travel in 20 degree weather with heat packs but arrived in perfect condition. If using Atlantis I garantee you will not be disappointed. Can't wait to place my next order. Thanks Peter!
I have ordered many, many times on-line in the last 7-8 years, which is where I get most of my fish. This is the first time I have tried Atlantis and I was really impressed with the quality of the fish I received and the prompt service - from questions being answered to getting the fish shipped - flawless. I was a little reluctant ( as we always are with a new supplier) but with my regular suppliers unable to find me fish for close to a year, I thought I'd give Atlantis a try - they had the fish I was looking for. I ordered some synodontis granulosus, as well as some petricolas and the fish are REALLY NICE specimens - I am over the top with what I received. Thanks Peter and hope to do business with you again.
Well I made my second trip, a 3-hour drive one way to see Peter and the fish. I knew what I was heading up there for. I had chatted with Peter several times in advance of the drive, so I knew I'd be picking up some great fish. I never mind paying shipping for online fish. I feel it's one of those things one must do to obtain quality and selection. Atlantis is driving distance and to be able to hand pick my beauties is a real treat. Driving home with a box full of fish that you picked out makes you forget about the 350 mile roundtrip.
Of course I will return again. He already knows a couple more varieties that I have my sights set on. When they show up on his list I will be making the drive again.
Thanks again to Peter and John for making my last visit another memorable one.
