After reading all the positive reviews on here I decided to place a rather large order(60-70 fish). When the fish came in the water temperature was in the 60's. But everything was alive and in decent condition. I quarentined the fish in a 150 gal. tub. I was expecting to lose a few in the first week due to stress etc. After a week I lost about 7 fish so I called Eddie to see if he thought this was normal. He said losing 7 fish is not bad but thought that I should call Jehmco and talk to a guy there about medicating the fish. This was not helpful at all, since the fish were not showing any signs of illness they could not recommend treating them with anything. Over the next 6-8 weeks I continued to lose fish at a rate of 2-3 fish per week. I spent about $150 in medications over the 6-8 weeks. After talking to the owner of a local fish store, I found out that they had recieved fish from Eddie. They told me what they ussed to clear up their fish. So 3 months later, I spent a total of about $500 (including the cost of fish, shipping and medication) and ended up with about 25 fish. Some of the fish that made it do look nice but others are clearly not quality fish. During the whole ordeal of losing fish I tried to E-mail Eddie a couple of times and never got any response. For people interested in mail order fish I would recommend going elsewhere. For people that have bought fish from Eddie I recommend waiting a couple of months before posting a review.
We have a new 110gal tall tank, with 100lbs of Texas holey rock and wanted to do a really nice cichlid display tank. Our goal was to have our tank as nice as some of the display tanks weve seen in pet stores... Well with the stock weve purchased from Bluegrass Cichlids, we have overshot our goal, and we are currently putting together one of the nicest display tanks I've ever seen in our own home with Eddies abundant stock, and expert advice.
Eddie is in our town, and his customer service and knowledge of ciclids make it a pleasure to do business with.
Thanks again, we will repeat customers for a long time.
"Great Service, Great Fish, Will do business with again."
Thanks Eddie, I am very happy with my order. All communication was prompt. Mbuna fishes are doing great. The Grow Baby Grow food is well liked and seems to be adding size already. Thanks Again for your help. I highly recommend Bluegrass Cichlids.
Ordered 5 Pseudothropheus "dolphin" and one yellow lab. Made it in good time and very good condition, though the water turned cold over winter shipping. Eddie was helpful and responsive. Quality of stock assesment will still depend on time though the dolphins look very promising. Will definitely purchase from Eddie again.
I just got my Prestige Mix from Eddie and the fish look beautiful. There were 40 fish total and all the fish made the overnight trip just fine, and after an hour or so in their new home, they were all lively and checking out all the holes and caves in the holey rock.
Eddie was great on the phone and answered all my questions. I highly recommend Bluegrass Cichlids and Eddie to do business with. There are just too many great reviews about them to believe otherwise.
This is the best place to get good quality fish! Eddie is extreamly equiped with knowledge, beautiful fish, great variety and a very nice set up!! This is where i will get my beauties from here on out! You will be very satisfied with business here!! Thanks Eddie

Being fairly new to cichlids, I asked Eddie for help and advice regarding my selections. I had done a lot of research but still wanted some input. He was incredibly helpful. I learned so much. His service was great. The fish are gorgeous!! Healthy and active. I was thrilled with my new hobby before - now I'm overjoyed! Eddie made the whole process of ordering online and shipping easy. I will be using him again (as will several of my friends - Albuquerque does not seem to have good LFS!)
Ordered 45 cichlids from the prestige and standard mixes - Eddie put together a great mix, including quite a few I'd never find locally. Did airport to airport pickup and worked great! Had a couple that were DOA, but he had thrown in a few extra fish anyway so they made up for the ones that didn't make it. First time I've ever bought fish online, and with Bluegrass it a smooth, painless experience!
I called Eddie on a Monday to order 20 fish from the beginner's mix and some food. The fish arrived Tuesday at 10 am via FedEx as promised - all of them were very healthy. What a great variety of colors - red zebras, saulosi, rusty, acei, and even a few albino auratus! They still are very healthy one week later. Great quality fish for a great price. Thanks again, Eddie!
