This was my first time having fish shipped and I was a bit stressed! Eddie was VERY helpful in answering my questions about shipping and answered my e-mail almost immediately. I was very satisified with the quality of the fish I recieved. I even recieved an e-mail to check if they arrived ok!
i am new to keeping cichlids and i bought my first batch from a lfs and everything went wrong with them. I switched them out to get some haps/peacocks and am very satisfied with my fish. eddie helped me get very good selection for very cheap. i can hardly wait to do business again. thanks so much.
Bought some Demasoni from Eddie, fish arrived as scheduled and in good shape. Eddie was more than helpful in straightening out a billing error after the sale. He will definitely be at the top of my list the next time I mailorder some cichlids!
I can't say enough great things about eddie at bluegrass cichlids. He called me the same day I placed my order, helped me pick the best fish for my tank and all the fish showed alive, well and healthy. I ordered the "yellow fin", "blue dolphin", "red empress", "fontosa", "baenschi", and "electric blue" all are incredible and the service spectacular and prompt.
After reading all the positive reviews about Blugrass Cichlids, I decided to purchase a dozen Burundi Frontosa here. The eagerly awaited shipment arrived with one Front barely breathing and subsequently dieing shortly. Two more died in the next two days. I contacted Eddie and he agreed to reimburse the cost of the three, which he did, but one more has died since and another may not make it. The rest have all been healthy and eating well, however I doubt that I will purchase from this site again as a 33% loss is too much for me to accept.
I just received a group of mbuna from Eddie. I ordered 12, he sent 14. There was only one DOA, even though I had them shipped via surface mail (I don't live far from Louisville) which took two days to arrive. They were very well packaged. The mbuna were feeding and establishing territories within 30 min. of release into the tank. Eddie's prices are great. The mbuna ended up averaging out to less than $7.00 per fish (shipping and box charge included) which I'm thrilled about considering that I can't find the species locally. Even if I could, they would probably be more expensive and nowhere near as healthy. I'm planning to purchase some of Eddie's highly-regarded fish food shortly. In closing, Bluegrass Cichlids is highly recommended to anyone looking for African lake cichlids or great food for them.
I ordered 6 species from a long distance away. Every fish arrived alive with no damage. Eddy threw in 5 extra fish, man what a great guy. He even called to check in on my fish. I will only do business with BlueGrass Cichilds.
I placed my order, then Eddie contacted me for with options for a specific shipping date so I could be available to receive them. The fish were at my door in under 12 hours, very well packed and happy as can be with no fin damage. They acclimated well and were eating later that night. He even threw in an extra N. pulcher, so I am very pleased. He had what I wanted, was very friendly during the transaction, the fish were shipped as promised and what I received are very nice specimens - much higher quality than what I have seen available locally. I will definitely purchase from Eddie again.
I ordered 5 adult peacocks and a Red Empress from eddie and everything was great. All the fish arrived healthy and kicking and after 2 hours in the tank they started eating. I got burned on the first online order I did but this one was great. I will definately order again.
I'm here to tell ya...Eddie will do you right. This is my second purchase from him and both have been great. Quality fish, professionel packing and great customer service. Eddie answered all my questions and my shipments arrived in a timely manner, this last one in 15 hrs. You can't beat the prices...including shipping,probably less than what you would pay at your LFS. I highly recommend Bluegrass Cichlids. All I can say is "WOW". Thank you Eddie. I look forward to doing more bussiness with you in the future.
First time bought fish online, and I am satisfied. Eddie personally called me about my order when he got back from Honduras. He's a great guy to do business with. The shipping added, still is a better deal than your LFS.
