Fish order

Postby Cichlid boy » Tue Apr 11, 2017 11:34 pm

Have you guys ever been disappointed in a fish that you ordered in line?

I just ordered 5 Enantiopus Kelisa from a site sponsor and I paid $29 Each 4 arrived fine but one arrived almost black and isn't going more than a foot from one side of the tank. ImageImage

Also when I ordered the fish they said 2m 3f and when they arrived they looked like 3m 2f. Since 3 of them have the yellow lips.

I've ordered 100s of fish online and over 10 years I can count the # of DOA or even fish that died within 24 hours on my fingers. It's all in the vendor.

Ya I know it's all in the vendor.

I read up on the reviews for this vendor and they were all mainly good.

Call or E-mail the vendor. See what their policies are. If they are reputable, they (should) maybe willing to help.

Ya I've been emailing them and they say that there's nothing they can do because they only cover DOA and not of a fish arrives sick/not ok.

They say if I want to kill it and send a picture of it dead I can take the credit for the fish on my next order.

But I'm not one to kill fish unless they are hurt so much that they won't live.

That is so wrong in too many ways.
