"Awesome Fish, Awesome Guy"
Made an appointment to pick up O.Lithobates, upon arriving at Bobs facility, I was quickly astonished at the amazing 40,000 gallon facility, that's right (40,000), insane color and health in all of his fish, every tank had multiple fish holding. Bob took me on a tour of the place and showed me some of his prized beauties. If you order online, ask him for fish that are not listed online. He's got tons of additional species. Bob was great to deal with, my Lithobates Z rocks look incredible. Planning to go help him out at his place with water changes to learn the tricks of the trade. Repeat business for sure.

"Awesome Show Males"
Bob Keeton of The Cichlid Store has some of the nicest male peacocks you will ever find. His pictures online do these fish no justice. Try this seller out and you will be hooked on his show quality fish. Thanks for the great fish Bob, Jason

"Just got order this week"
Just got my mpimbwe front this week. Very nice guy, (great customer relations) fast shipping and fish was healthy on arrival. However Fish has not colored up or eaten the 3 days I've had him. Probably just shipping jitters Bob and I suspect, We'll see.

"Overall Great"
Simply put... was a very good experience... I ordered 7 wc fronts. They all were healthy. Bob emailed and called me when they were on the plane to me. He called later on to see how they were. I will use his services again

"Good Fish, Great Service"
My order was delivered to me within a week of my purchase, which is super awesome. All the fish seem generally healthy and they started eating as soon as they were let out into the tank. Some of the fish have distressed fins, but that seems to be clearing up quite nicely.

"I never make the same mistake twice"
I'm surprised to see so many postive reviews here. Maybe they were having a bad day when I ordered my fish, but I am not at all pleased with The Cichlid store.
First of all, I ordered a male Aul. sp. "Firefish", this fish looks NOTHING like the photo on the website, it is a very dull and drab looking beige colored fish, not worth the money. I also ordered a "proven" breeding group of Aul. Red shoulders. In the 4 months I owned them, not only did they not breed, the male never even colored up! At 4.5 inches, a peacock hould be fully colored, but not this guy, barely even a hint of color, worthless. I ordered 1 male Aul. Albino Baenshi, supposed to be 3 inches, it was barely 2 inches, and died a day after putting it in the tank. The last part of my order was a trio of Midnight Mloto, 1m and 2f, and they sent me the wrong fish! The females may be Midnights, cant really tell the difference between one Copadichromis female and another, but the male they sent me was Placidochromis Penochilus! Any one with knowledge about these fish should easily be able to tell the difference between any Placidochromis species and a Copadichromis. The only bright spot in all of this, is that the Penochilus that I didn't even order, is turning out to be rather nice. No way would I do business with this place again.

"Awesome Breeder!"
I just recently purchased my first order from CichlidStore.com. I drove to the facility and took a tour of the magnificent store. Cichlidstore.com offers a huge variety in fish at the best prices I have found. The fish are showing beautiful colors and are doing great in my show tank. Bob worked with me first hand and introduced me to some species I had never even seen before. The store is one of the cleanest I have been in and all the fish look perfect. I look forward to doing future business with CichlidStore.com very soon and I would recommend this breeder to anyone who has a love for Cichlids.

"Bob at the Cichlid Store Rocks !!"
I've been buying from the CichlidStore going on 2 years now. I've never had a issue ! Product is exact, delivery is right on time, tracking details are are e-mailed the night prior or the same days of shipping and the customer service top notch. Always giving me his undevited attention when asking questions and always very willing to give information.
I recently purchased; Rostratus, Malawai Trout Oto Lithobates, Ice Berg and a breeding pair of Phenochilus Tanzania,"Star Sapphire". Come to find out, he gave me an extra Star Sapphire female at no additional chage. "I love free stuff" !!
Bob Keeton's a good and trust worthy supplier. I highly recommend calling Bob and buying from the CichlidStore. I look forward to buying more from him again, "As soon as my wife gives me the ok" Thanks Bob !

"Absolutely the best in quality, price and service – period."
We have been buying from Bob Keeton for over two years and I can safely say that the fish are of the highest quality and lowest price. For those thinking of buying cichlids from his CICHLIDSTORE.COM web site you will find that his service is excellent. If you live in the Tampa Bay area and have the opportunity to visit Bob’s enterprise in Valrico you will be impressed. Bob takes the time to explain every aspect of the breeding process and he answers your questions about the various cichlids. His knowledge and love of cichlids has turned into something more than a hobby. No matter where we live in the future we will continue our association with Bob either directly of via his internet site.

"Sent me wrong fishes!!"
Best prices that I can find on the net for peacocks but......
Instead of Masoni peacocks, he sent me Chitande Mozambique. He sent me OB peacocks instead of german reds. Becareful when ordering with this guy because you might end up with fishes you didn't order. Not worth buying from again.

"Not what I ordered"
I ordered fry from this place 7 months ago and now that they are grown and colored up, I can tell they are not what I ordered. The fry were supposed to be C. midnight mloto but are actually ivoryheads or trewevasae. Either they subbed without telling me or they don't know what they are doing. Also, one of the fry had a deformed face. I guess they don't check the quality of the fish they send out. I raised these fry only to be disappointed. Will never buy from again and would advise others to stay away.
