I would recommend buying fish from Bob anyday to anyone. I drove to Bobs cichlid farm, not knowing what to expect and had one of the greatest fish buying experiences i have ever had. Beautiful colors, great sizes and wonderfully priced. Bobs fish farm was in great condition and takes great care of his fish. I left there with 8 peacocks with a variety of color. Bob is a great guy and knows what he is talking about when it comes to cichlids. We will be back the 2nd week in May to pick up more fish. So if you are interested in getting great quality of fish i would definatly buy from Bob. Thanks Bob for a great experience see you soon.

"Great place to buy fish!"
This was my first experience buying fish over the internet and it turned out beautifully. What was even better was the fact that I was able to drive to Bob's farm and pick up my fish. I purchased 10 P. Demasoni and they are very nice. Bob hand-picked 10 individuals and even bagged them separately for me. It took him awhile to get them bagged, but I commend his willingness to do so. He is a great guy and loves to talk about cichlids. He gave me a tour of his farm and was eager to explain his operation. I'm sure this can be frustrating to explain such details to a "newbie," but he handled it like a champ!

I would not hesitate to recommend Bob to anyone. Do not think twice about ordering from him, #%$&, don't even think once! Just do it and you will be elated.

"awesome healthy fish"
bob made a stock list for my 150 gal male peacock and hap tank. after a mixup with the carrier i got them home at 3 am, and they were so full of vigor a couple jumped clear out of my 5 gal bucket. healthiest and best shape fish i've ever recieved mail order. 33 fish cost me a pretty penny, but i feel it was well spent and i'm very happy.

"Great fish at great prices!"
Bob just sent me 7 male fish for my 75 gallon tank including a Mloto Likoma, Red Empress, Taiwan Tanzania Reef, Tiger, Electric Blue Ahli and the Aulonacaras German red and Ngara Flametail. Before ordering, I called Bob and he explained how to order and receive the fish. I live in a small city, Mobile Alabama and he arranged shipment through our only major airline. No hassles with ordering on his website, shipping and the fish all arrived healthy, sexed and much larger than expected. Bob uses lots of water to transport these large fish and my order was 18 lbs. The Red Empress is now the most colorful fish in my tank even showing up the phenochilus. The other fish were colored up nicely also. Wish I had another tank to start on for other cichlids. I will order from Bob again instead of taking chances with juvies from Ebay or local stores that don't know much about African cichlids. Give Bob a call; you won't be sorry!

"Awesome tropheus!"
This was my third time ordering fish over the internet and my third different supplier. My experience with Bob was the best of the three. Bob spent over 45 minutes on the phone with me giving advice and talking about different issues and fishkeeping in general. He kept me well informed about the shipping and when the fish would arrive. I had the fish in my possession only hours after he dropped them at the airport and his packaging was excellant. My best suprise was when I opned the box though. The fish were much bigger than I was expecting. All my new tropheus are now happily in their new home and they look great! Thanks Bob!

"My second order was even more spectacular than the first!"
I just ordered again from Bob and each peacock and Hap I received was show quality. Outstanding fins and colors. Outstanding service. Bob was out of some fish I had expressed an intrest in, and to make it up to me he sold me a trio of German reds with an absolutely spectacular male. I will order all my peacocks and haps from Cichlidstore in the future! Thanks Bob!
(See below for my first review)

I am thrilled with the fish and service I received from Bob Keeton! I can't say enough about the fish! I ordered 24 peacocks and haps, and received beautiful males ranging from
3-7 inches in size, with the average size being about 4-4.5 inches. It would be
very difficult if not impossible to find this many quality fish at my local pet
stores, so Bob has been essential in helping me set up my dream tank!!!!! Not
only that, but Bob threw in free fish, including three beautiful FO Synodontis. Bob's service was awesome. The
fish were double-bagged with no leaks, and the bags were tied in a way that
allowed easy unpacking. Bob gave excellent and detailed instructions about
acclimating the fish. When he found out I had used feeder goldfish to cycle my
tank (a bad recommendation by my LFS), he was concerned about bacteria possibly
introduced by the goldfish. He therefore gave me a free large bag of flake food
medicated with metronidazole and oxytetracycline, to help protect my fish from
infection. The fish arrived in excellent condition, and all but one ate the

"Bob is the man!"
Bob was nice enough to show my daughter and I around his place. He explained his set up and was great at answering questions. He has the best selection I've seen and excellent website to boot.
If your into cichlids the cichlidstore.com is the place to go. Thanks again Bob for sharing your time and experience.

"Jaw-Dropping Cichlids!!"
-And even better customer service! That is how I would describe my experience with the Cichlid Store. I read a lot of reviews before settling on the cichlidstore.com, and my expectations were very high.

First the quality of the fish were out right gorgeous and screaming with color. Wow! With freshwater fish color like this, who needs all the saltwater hassle! What else can I say. WAY exceeded my expectations.

Next the customer service was outstanding. Bob and his team are very knowledgable not to mention just down to earth good people! Not only did he take time to carefully package and label all the fish, he also took the time to answer all my questions and my wifes too. Again, WAY exceeded my expectations.

If you are looking for healthy, Jaw-dropping Cichlids, the Cichlid store is the right place. I will never go any where else and neither should you!
Thanks Bob !!!

"Superior customer service"
I bought a trio of large yellow Labs and several Tropheous from Bob. I am very satisfied with the quality of fish that I received. The male Lab is almost a show specimen, and was showing good color the very first day. The Tropheous were also very nice. Bob kept in touch with me for several weeks until he was able to obtain the fish I wanted. The fish were sent to San Juan, Puerto Rico, while other dealers would not even consider shipping outside the continental United States. I will definitely recommend CichlidStore.com to anyone interested in obtaining quality African cichlids. I will definitely do business with Bob in the near future.

I met and visited Bob for the first time this weekend He took the time to answer my questions and give advise. I look forward to the pleasure of buying more from him. He is a real gentleman to deal with.
About 10 days ago I went back to visit Bob to buy some fish. I explained to him that I wanted smaller, lesser aggressive peacocks & haps. Bob took the time to select fish that met my needs, never complaining(at least to me) when I asked him newbie questions about the fish or any other things. Well, it's almost 2 weeks later and I have 12 beautiful young peacocks/haps/ and a calvus. They are doing great. Yes, I will DEFINITELY BE VISITING BOB AGAIN. If anybody asked where I got my fish, I would be proud and happy to tell them at The Cichlid Store. Thanks Bob

"Excellent service and quality of the fish were superb"
The Cichlidstore kept me informed as the shipment and any problems except. I did order some fish which I thought I was going to recieve
but no reason as to why.
This is minor. I think the company is an excellent source for your cichlids needs

"Can't Buy from a better place!"
Bob Keeton is a top notch retailer. Helped me select the compatible specimens for my tank, and delivered on time as promised. The fish were exactly as advertised, and in fact were a little larger than I expected (not a bad thing in this case). I will absolutely trust Bob again, and would certainly recommend him to anybody in the hobby.

"awesome online fish store"
I had never ordered fish off the internet before so I was a little skeptical at first. I had alot of questions, Bob answered all of them and made me feel comfortable with ordering fish over the phone. He told me what he had that looked good and recommended a few fish that he thought would look good in my tank. After I picked up the fish I was amazed how nice they were. They were awesome fish for a great price. I had asked for F1 and he sent me all F1 except two of them were wild caught. I am definately going to order from him again.
