"Wonderful to buy from !! Buy from Eddie."
I was ready to stock my newly setup tank with a variety of african cichlids, so I emailed Eddie at Bluegrass Cichlids. He promtly responded to my email overnight and had great recomendations for my 75g tank. Since I was only a few hours away, I decided I wanted to make a trip to Eddies and see the fish firsthand. I was totally amazed to see the selection of healthy african cichlids he had in stock. While I was there I also checked out Eddies three large personal tanks (including a nice 220g flush mounted in wall). I bought a total of 30 fish (26 african cichlids, 2 catfish, and 2 plecos). They all survived the trip home (2 1/2hrs) without any trouble as Eddie prepared the bags with bag buddies and medical grade oxygen before I left to made the journey back home. I am extremely pleased with my purchase from Eddie. I may not have saved a ton of money by the time I made the drive, but I feel great knowing Eddie is very down to earth, knowledgable and takes care of his customers. Eddie threw in a extra fish in my mix as well, free of charge. I highly recommend buying from Eddie, if you are worried about the fish not being healthy, etc.. then have no worries. I'll surely suggest Eddie for anyone looking to stock a tank of African Cichlids. Thanks again Eddie for all your help! -Brad Crabtree

"Great Fish and Value"
I ordered 12 saulosi friday afternoon for 4.75 each. Eddie was nice enough to try to pick only females, although You can not tell for sure at this size but pick only the fish without male traits helps get the most females. He did pretty good although, one, I'm almost certain is a male. All the fish arived safe and via fedex Wednesday afternoon, he shipped monday. About half of the stock looked pretty much they where not going to make it; the water felt very cold to the touch. I put the bag in my tank and before to long most started looking much better, two of which where even fighting in the bag,LOL. All looked good but two. I put them all in a pre-cycled ten gallon just so they can get their health back up to 100% before going back in the main tank. The two that look bad looked much better this morning, and all them but one ate when I offered them food, I sure if the one eatss tonight it will be alright, plus he sent me an extra so if it dies I have lost nothing. I would order from Eddie again if I need to.

"Ordered based on great ratings, results were some what dissappointing..."
This was my first time ordering fish online...and I did as much research as possible. And based on the many great reviews and conversations with Eddie, I went ahead with Bluegrass. I order a total of 15 Mbuna's. Eddie's service was great and delivery was prompt and as promised...with the exception of a missing heat pack, which I was dissappointed with, as I live in NJ, where the temps are pretty low. I had 2 dead on arrival, all had their fins in bad condition, not sure if it was from rot or nipping. On a positive note, he packed 1 or 2 extra. I put them in my tank and found that 3 were not doing so well and a day later 1 had died, 1 is still very weak and the other seems healthy. At this point I have about 12 fish...I don't think I'd go with this route in the future...again, great service but it's tough to spend $5/fish and $60 on delivery, only to get 12 fish. I just feel that over $11/fish (1-1.5" saulosi, hongi and acei) is too much. I guess I just had bad luck, but I'm sure the missing heat pack also had a part. I've been emailing back and forth with Eddie and haven't been offered anything in return...yet, it's been a week. I'll be sure to update if/when I hear back. **UPDATE: Eddie has offered a credit for the dead fish...not sure if I'll ever get to use it, but I guess that's the best he could do.

"top Notch Fish"
I have been lucky enough to have known Eddie for several years at this point. We set another tank up and eddie assisted us in picking out some great new fish. Also, Eddie has totaly changed my views on south amercan cic's. I once thought they were so boring and couldnt hold a candkle to africans. Then as I got to know Eddie better and a had a few oppurtunities to see some south americans he opened a whole new world to me, Africans have always been my favorites, but the S.americans are just as interesting and Eddie knows more about s.americans than most ppl in the states. Eddie is a professional and his buisness is about to realy boom. He's always had his loyal customers like myself, but i spoke with yesterday and he has plans that will alow him to have even more inventorty. His facility is top notch and most importantly to me he keeps that area super super clean. Just an Overall top notch guy and the best in the states that I have ever met pesonaly. In the next couple years Bluegrass cic's could has incredible potentianl, due to the fact that Eddie is making a an effort to make his cic buiusness the best and his number one. Before it was more of a secondary buiness for Ed, but now it's his baby and the guy is succesful in whatver he does. I strongly suggest Bluegrass, I have kept cics for over 20 years and Eddie is the best. This is also coming form a biology major if that makes a diffference, I could care less but my g-friend said it would be good to put

"best purchase i have made since my aquarium"
Eddie was very friendly and knowledgeable. His prices are very fair and his stock is the best in the area. If you live in the area and buy from any one else you are crazy

"A+ customer service, great experience."
A+ in terms of prompt response (less than a day for any of my questions.)

A+ in terms of order processing, quality of new arrivals and selection.

If you are looking to buy new fish online, this is the place.

"Standard Mix"
Eddie help me find fish that would work with my existing stock and added a nice variety of color to a tank that needed brighting up. As always, Eddie was pleasure to work with. Also, has a nice 125 set up for sell if your looking.

"Very pleased with quality fish"
Ordered on a Friday, fish shipped Monday night, arrived 10am on Tuesday, well packaged. 1 DOA but since there were a couple more than I paid for not a big deal.

All other fish are great-looking and settled in really well. Woke up Wednesday to find them all sleeping in their respective caves, some I had made, others they had moved stone to create.

Will definitely use Bluegrass over and over again.

"Another satisfied customer!"
First time dealing with Bluegrass Cichlids, and it was an excellent experience! I'm lucky enough to live local and was able to pick up my fish and see his stock in person. I left with more fish then I went for, and very pleased. Even if I had to ship the fish it would have been a great deal. His prices are very reasonable for the quality of fish you get, top notch. There's no way I could of found what I got at a LFS for what I paid.

But, its not all about price, Eddie was very informative on everything. He helped with stocking ideas and was very friendly.

Can't wait to make another purchase!!

"New Fish"
Thanks again Eddie. Eddie always has something new everytime I visit him. Not the same fish I see at all the pet stores. If you need something and cant find it I would give Bluegrass a try. I also buy my fish food from Bluegrass Cichlids and it seems to work really good.
