"First time won't be the last time"
So on Sunday I got to visit one of my local Importer Breeder in the Tampa area. His name is Bob Keeton and he owns The Cichlid Store, http://www.cichlidstore.com. He gave me and my friends a tour of his facility. A one word adjective….Awesome!

He carries a small variety of tangs (Tropheus, Frontosas and Comps) However his focus is breeding Malawi Hap Peacocks. Lastly he has some of the most beautiful Angels I have ever seen.

The entire experience was enjoyable, and I plan on doing business with Bob again in the future.

"Bob, You Da Man!!"
I ordered nineteen cichlids and the very next day Bob replied to my order. He confrimed my order and shipped it out air mail the same day. I recieved my order that night in California. Talk about service. That's not all. The fish were in excellent condition and were beautiful specimens. Like I said before, Bob, you da man!!!

You can't go wrong with the Cichlid store.

"Amazing fish, amazing service!!!!!"
I can't say enough about the positive experience I had while purchasing my fish from Bob. I called Bob one Thursday evening and asked him if I could come down to see the fish on Saturday. He was so nice, and poite and invited me to come down and he would show me around. I was very impressed with his facility. It was spotlessly clean and very apparant that he takes extremely good care of his fish. On that trip I purchased 5 catfish to cycle my 55 gallon tank. He and his staff took the time to help me figure out the best way to set up and cycle my tank. Bob even gave me some "gunk" to help speed the cycle up. (worked like a charm, it cycled in less than two weeks.) After letting my tank settle into its cycle, I visited Bob a second time to purchase my peacocks. He had already made recommendations to me and I completely trusted his judgement. He hand picked each fish, bagged them seperately and made extra sure they would do well in transport, even though the trip was only 2 hours. He was so patient and kind with my many newbie questions! My husband who came along for the ride, thouroughly enjoyed the experience as well, and he is not a fish person! Our new fish have been in their tank almost a week now and they are super healthy and breathtakingly beautiful!!! I could not be happier with my new fish and with Bob and his service. I won't buy fish from anyone else now that I've been to the best. Thanks again Bob!!!

"Bob The Fish Man"
Wish you could all see these fish! Have had them in the tank for a couple of months, and they have thrived. Red empress, peacock, and two synodontis multi's. Fantastic additions to the school, I recommend Bob to anyone who wants skill, knowledge, and honesty!

"Great cichlids & prices! Great service!"
I just placed my second order with Bob and should be picking it up sometime next week or the week after. I live about 1 1/2 hours away from The Cichlid Store and the first time I ordered I even offered to go there to pick up my fish but Bob met me halfway instead. This was just over a month ago and all of my fish(11) are doing great. With my most recent order I realized I had forgotten to order a particular species (about 2 hours afterwards). I emailed Bob and asked if it could be added and he said no problem. Bob has MUCH better stock than I am able to find locally and for me its great because I don't have to pay shipping!

"Best african cichlids ever!!!"
Bob was very nice offering advice and help to me on how to stock my tank. Not only did he offer all his fish at very good prices but these fish look absolutely magnificent. The peacocks are the most colorful I have ever seen and the other fish are just as nice. If you are looking for african cichlids, look no further. Cichlidstore.com is the way to go. I can't say enough about how nice the fish are and the same goes for Bob.

"Bob Ships To Canada!!!"
Bob at CichlidStore.Com is a very nice, trustworthy, and more than fair individual.
Communication and service was was great, both via email and phone.
Bob shipped some gorgeous, healthy, super quality fish to me in Canada for the first time. A learning experience for the both of us.
Fellow Canadians are now in luck for some great, hard to find fish from a top notch breeder/retailer.
Everything went silky smooth with my order, and fish arrived fine and well.
Don't be hessitant to order from Bob, nothing but good things to say about him.
This is my first time dealing with Bob, and definately not the last.

I was impressed with Bob's website, but when I drove out to take a look I was blown away! Bob's facilities are truly amazing, and it's obvious he's gone to great trouble to be sure his breeding stock is the best available - both in quality and variety.

I was preparing to stock a new 135 gal show tank, and Bob recommended that I do a fishless cycle and add all my fish together. I don't think I could have done this anywhere else and gotten all the species that I wanted, and such wonderful specimens of each! And at such good prices! (Do your homework if you choose to do fishless cycle. Found pure ammonium chloride powder on ebay - could not find pure ammonia in stores.)

When my tank was fully cycled, I went back to Bob's, and he and his partner, Charles (also a world-class african cichlid expert) hand-picked a full complement of beautiful fish for my tank. I left with 27 show-quality fish (mostly haps and peacocks), including a few that I hadn't really thought about that Bob recommended.

I'm sure many would argue, but I think I've got the best-looking african tank east of the mississipi! I've been staring at my fish for almost a week now, and am very pleased - each fish is as interesting and colorful as the next.

Working with the Cichlid Store was a very gratifying experience - many thanks to Bob and Charles for the personal service and advice, and for running a truly outstanding operation!

I really don'

""GREAT FISH, AT CichlidStore" "Excellent Service!!!!""
I just pick up my fourth order that included Rhamphochromis macrophthalmus and Lethrinops sp. "Mbasi Creek" superb fish!! These have been a great fish buying experience. Bob was very patient with me and my indecision. It was hard to pick out what I wanted, as there were so many show quality fish. This is a magnificent fish distributor to work with. All fish are double bagged. NO leaks. All fish are healthy, and looking great! If your looking for outstanding Malawi cichlids, CichlidStore is where you want to buy them. Thanks Bob and Chuck, see you soon. Tulio, Tampa, FL
