"Nice guy. Great set up of tanks and variety."
Very nice man. Never met me and just let me come in and see his fish. Just to see all the fish he had was worth the trip. I'm going back in a few weeks to pick up a couple other fish. I would suggest you use Bluegrass Cichlids in the future especially if you live near Bluegrass.

"Had a bad experience..."
Initially I chose Bluegrass because of their geographical availability, promptness of email reply, and their stock. I placed my order and both my husband and I spoke with Eddie and his staff several times and were impressed with the friendliness and great customer service we received. My fish arrived promptly and all were doing well (only one DOA). I ordered Ps. Acei, Ruby Greens, and Ps. Demasoni. The Acei and RGs looked fine, however the Demasoni, honestly, looked like breeder culls. Strange elongated bodies, very imperfect barring (think: petstore kenyi), and overall, NOT what Demasoni should look like. Not one out of 20 looked like a well bred fish. After several emails, I received a prompt refund for the price of the Demasoni. I was glad I got the refund, but shocked at the poor quality of the Demasoni I received (surely after 10 years in the biz he would know better???). I won't be doing business with them again, sadly.
I wanted to add that it is now apparent that the both the acei and the ruby greens I ordered have ich and possibly other diseases. Two died.

"Fantastic fish, fantastic food, great guy"
I have known Eddie for about 7 years and I am simply amazed at the continual quality of fish he has available, not to mention the awesome selection. I have seen fish at his house before I ever saw them in a book or magazine! I recently started feeding his foods (switched from New Life Spectrum) and I can really tell a difference in my fish. I have kept fish for over 20 years and you will not find a better guy to deal with!

"Great Cichlid source!"
I have been doing business with Eddie of Bluegrass Cichlids for over 10 years. He is one of the best in the business. You will be hard pressed to find someone who knows more about Africans. He has been keeping them ever since Pierre' Brichard introduced them to the USA in the early 70's. Eddie is professional and all class. He is an asset to this board and I highly encourage you to do business with him. I know I do almost every week.

"I must have bad luck with online retailers"
I ordered 4 bags of fish, 4 different species, 5 fish each for a total of 20. Of these 4 bags, two were the correct species, one was not, and one was a grab bag of hybrids and other emaciated fish. Honestly these random fish were emaciated, mis-shaped, bent spines, one was a copadichromis, and of all the fish 9 died within the first week. I assume the bags must have gotten mixed up, or were put together hastily.
Eddie was very friendly and the fish did arrive on time and all alive (albeit some not for long), and Eddie did offer to replace some of the fish multiple times. Unfortunately there were no other fish I wanted at this point. So all in all the experience itself was good except the fish quality and the care with which the correct bags were sent was subpar. Which is still very important to me considering I take very much care in insuring my tanks are filled with the best stock. Kind of funny how it's really only me that had this happen so it must be that my experience was just a freak thing, but I figured I'd share my experience anyway, even though it has been so long since my purchase.

"Very Nice Person To Deal With"
I ordered some more food from Eddie, I had a problem getting my order to work from the site, I contacted Eddie and he set me a new password, it still did not work so he let me place my order thru an email. I got it in a couple days and he had upgraded my order a bit for my troubles..a more than fair person to deal with, I will keep buying from him in the future.

"Eddie Took Great Care of Me"
I like to buy my Cichlids from people that know what they are doing. Eddie is the man! He knows his stuff and is very patient and helpful. He took his time with me to learn about my tank set up and what I wanted to achieve with my Cichlid selection.

My main goal is to have a nice "show" tank with a wide variety of Mbuna's and Peacocks for color. Eddie suggested the Prestige Mix for the Mbuna's and helped me put together a colorful selection of Peacocks to go with them. Eddie was very careful to select fish that would get along together in the tank.

I love the look of my tank with the Prestige Mix and the Peacocks. I can't wait for the Peacocks to grow out a little and start showing some colors. All 30 + fish are doing great so far. I look forward to doing business with Eddie again in the near future.

"Great Fish, Great Service, Great Guy"
I recently bought my first selection of African Cichlid fish, but it was Eddie who helped me pick them out. Now I have a beautiful array of colors in my tank. Eddie also talked me through a couple of boneheaded mistakes. Furthermore his fish arrived in great condition.
Thanks Eddie!

"Two thumbs up"
I just picked up some nice cichlids from Eddie. Old World or New, whatever you’re into, he’s got what you want. WARNING!! If you go pick up your fish in person, as opposed to having them delivered, plan on spending more than you originally intended. You’re bound to see something you just gotta have! :D

"Fastest Service Ever..."
I ordered at 5pm on tuesday, got my fish wednesday before 3pm. You cannot ask for anything better than that.

Packaging was also the nicest I have seen from any online fish store. I will be ordering again as soon as my fish settle in.

Also, I ordered 12 demasoni and he gave me 13. Great people to deal with...

"Very well taken care of."
I've been looking for a long time of a great place to buy from. And I finally found it. Bluegrass Cichlids. Eddie has gone way out of his way to make me a very happy customer. That goes along way with me. He is so polite and easy to do business with, and very friendly. I will start doing business with these guys. Thanks

"Super Assett to the Cichlid Community!"
Eddie was extremely helpful with my first cichlid purchase. He is very friendly and knowledgeable and had no problem answering all of my newbie questions (thanks for being patient with me Eddie).

Eddie suggested that I purchase his Prestige mix instead of the cookie-cutter list I had chosen. I'm glad he did! I ordered 30 cichlids from the Prestige mix and the colors are just spectacular! I am not yet familiar with all of the species but there are at least 8 or 9. He was also gracious enough to include extras due to possible deaths from shipping. All of the fish arrived alive and warm. They have settled in nicely and I look forward to future purchases from Bluegrass Cichlids. Super A+!

If you are looking to buy cichlids online, look no further. Bluegrass Cichlids is the place to go!

Thank you so much Eddie!

Many africans, but I was most impressed with the selection of hard to find central american cichlids. Great fish & service, will go back for more!
