"prompt, reasonablly-priced deliver of high-quality fish"
I had been reading reviews and reviewing stock available to complete my 110g malawi tank and decided on Bluegrass. I am skeptical about ordering without seeing fish first, but there were so many good things being said, I decided to try them. I ordered 14 juvies. They range in size from sub-adult (2-3") all the way down to what I consider fry. This could have gone badly if I had not had a fry tank set up already for some peacock fry I have. I am very pleased with the quality of fish - they are gorgeous! Very healthy. Prime specimens. I asked for as males and he tried his best to accomodate that request. Be sure to ask for larger specimens if you cant safely introduce very young ones just in case. : D Will use again!!

"Unbelievably fast "
Ordered 15 fish from Eddie,his shipment was super fast. Package arrived safe and sound without a single death. I think a couple afra's got a little excited in the bags cause one had some tail fin damage. But I expected that being shipped in a bag. Three yellow labs are gorgeous, cant wait for the afra's and Rustie's to color up. I would highly recommend Bluegrass to anyone thinking of ordering fish on line. I know I'll never get fish from a lfs again.

Well been a week or so now and everyone is doing great. The Rusties are gorgeous, the afra cobue's are coloring up looks like I might of got a 2m and 5 female mix I'll have to watch. I have had one death of a yellow lab. They were absolutly stunning, it had some damage to its side so i'm sure it was aggression from someone in the tank.

When I upgrade to a bigger tank i'll be adding more fish from Bluegrass.

Thanks for the great deal.

"The Cichlid Guru"
Bluegrass Aquatics (owner Eddy), is amazing. His fish selection is amazing as well as his knowledge of all the cichids he stocks. I have not bought a single fish since I meet Eddy from any where else, the quality is just that good. he also carry's an amazing array of food for all cichids and it brings your fishes colors to a whole new level. Bone Rock is another comment, the bones he carries are the smoothest feeling bone rock I have ever encountered and its at a great price. I tried this new product for my tanks called Special Blend and it did wonders for my water clarity and cleanliness. You can trust Eddy with all of your cichlid needs, products, knowledge and a great guy to deal with.

"Bluegrass Aquatics, Mr. Martin, Louisville"
No one knows fish like Eddie. But when it comes to cichlids, he pretty much wrote the book! His set-up reaches above and beyond anything I've ever encountered. Also, What amazed me the most, was not only his unlimited knowledge of cichlids, but the amount of respect he has for them. His selection is unsurpassable and puts pet shops to shame. The food he has, for the many cichlids you WILL purchase,-(because, you will not leave without one, trust me) has color, underwater development, and nutrients. What else to say, Eddie is a "real" human being who has a passion like none other and doesn't treat you like a "customer". I will only buy from him from now on. See you soon Eddie.

"Happy fish! Happy customer!"
I recently ordered several types of peacocks from Eddie at Bluegrass Aquatics. It was my first time ordering fish online so I was very nervous. I stood at my door anxiously awaiting Fedex, when they came I noticed my order was in a very well packaged box and it was labeled Tropical Fish. When I opened the box I noticed several fish had died but then I also noticed that he sent me extra, so it all balanced out. I went with Fedex 2nd Day delivery so losing a few fish was expected. Each peacock was about 5 dollars each which I thought was cheap, so I ordered a lot in case some didn't make it. I got quite a few males and a few albino eureka reds which are very hard to find where I'm at. Thank you Eddie for being so helpful. I'll definitely be ordering from Bluegrass again.

"Excellent experience, will be back!"
This was our first time ordering with Bluegrass Cichlids. Due to recent hurricane events, our order was delayed (this was our choice as we wanted to wait for one of our fish to get ordered in). Mr. Martin kept in contact with us and let us know promptly when our complete order was ready to ship out. Despite some rough handling from the FEDEX guy (He threw the box on the dash despite the big lettering on the box saying "LIVE FISH"...) the fish arrived safe and sound and are very healthy, and BEAUTIFUL!!! They are enjoying their new home. We will definately be coming back to bluegrass cichlids for our next online order. It was a pleasure doing business with them and hassle free. Thanks again!!!

"excellent"
my experience was excellent. mr. martin enjoyed handling matters over the phone, which was a little hard for me as im always at a computer so email is better, but he was very kind and helpful over the phone.

I order a lot of fish over 50, and had 3 doa's, but as he sent extras i still made out ahead. all the fish that made it are healthy and eating.

i will most certainly order from him for my next order as well.

"Not going to order again"
I got my order in from them about 3 weeks ago. I got my order in when it was suppose to come in well when i got it in there was a DOA. Which i understand it happens. I took a picture of it before i opened the bag as maybe it was just in shock even though i was sure it was dead. Then after releasing them. I noticed that they sent me 2 of the same fish. Was missing one of the fish that was suppose to be in the order. Then noticed one looked like it hadn't ate in god knows how long. Over the 1-2 Weeks three of them died. 4 Counting the DOA. One being the one that hadn't looked like it had ate in quite some time. After the first one died i thought it could be my water. Checked it and it was prefect. They weren't showing any Signs of illness no aggression nothing just died... Anyways long story short. I tried contacting them within 30 minutes of me finding the DOA and didn't get contacted back. Tried 4-5 more times in the past 3 weeks and i STILL haven't been contacted back. I won't be ordering again.

"Eddie Rocks"
What is there to say? Eddie rocks! Any time that I have called in need of something, he was quick to respond and fix me up. He's a good guy and his wife seems very nice. Nice home and a VERY nice fish room. Just watch the cat...hehehe. LOL. Thanks, Eddie!

"Horrible experience - make sure you see a pic of the fish being sent! Sold hybrids!"
I ordered 16 Msobo, 10 White tops, and 5 petricola from Ed. He had them off and running to me Monday and I got them Tuesday.

edited review:

I'm quite upset. After allowing the fish to grow out some more and realizing their colors and stripes were permanent I have come to find out what was sold to me as 'white tops' were actually hybrid afra most likely. A cobue was mixed in the order as well as a yellow lab.

I paid good money for a specific type of fish and I did not receive that fish. My emails have gone unanswered. I will never use them again. Ever.

"Overall GREAT experience!"
I called and spoke with Eddie last week about ordering Mbuna. I had several stocking questions and he was very friendly and helpful. I ordered 5 "Hongi" and 4 "Msobo". I requested that they arrive Tuesday-Friday, because we are not home very much Sat-Mon. I used FedEx ground shipping because we are in the reccomended zip code for this option. I honestly expected to have maybe 1 fish or more DOA because of what I have read about ordering fish online.

They arrived this afternoon. I was given a link to track shipping so I knew they were arriving today. They all arrived alive, beautiful, and appear to be very healthy. I am a beginner, but the coloring seems to be excellent and they look just like the examples in the species profiles. The prices are EXTREMELY reasonable- with shipping I spent less than I would have going to a LFS and they are much better quality. I will definitely use this retailer when I need stock in the future!

"Great Business, Great Fish"
Eddie has created a definite return-customer with me. Despite a small issue with an order, he bounced back and compensated for for the issue 200%. The fish are of great quality and the service is unbeatable. A true hobbyest turned businessman who cares about the quality and service of his business. Thanks Eddie!

"Thumbs Up to Bluegrass Aquatics!"
Bluegrass Aquatics is not only my ONLY source for food for my central american cichlids but is also one of my best sources for central american cichlids. Eddie is great to deal with, quick, polite and patient. Also knowing that he travels with good company makes me feel that much better when dealing with him. Great Job Eddie, keep it up. my lyonsi look great!

"First time ordering fish!"
My 10 fish made it to Texas in less than 16 hours from time of pickup and all ten arrived alive and well. I chose the "Overnight" shipping option due to the heat in Texas right now. They updated me through each part of the process...Confirmed Order, Confirmed Shipment and sent all the information from FedEx.

Thanks to Bluegrass Cichlids for making my first choice a great choice. I will order fish from here again and would recommend anyone who is looking for that fish that your LFS just might not have or be able to get.
