i will all ways order fish from eddie this guy knows his fish also i love his fish quality is verry nice one of the best fish i have seen in a long time his shipping is great i ordered two days and my fish came in fine if i ever have a question about fish i will call him he has never told me rong yet so over all bluegrass aquatics is number 1 in my book.
I ordered from eddie knowing that I could get fish cheaper elsewhere, but the reviews were great. He took 2 weeks to send me an order and flatout lied over the phone. I ordered 3 different fish and he only sent out one kind. I ordered fish that were supposed to be 2-3 inches and he sent me 10 that were barely 1''. It cost me a hundred bucks with 2 day shipping for 10 1 inch fish. The quality of them isnt good either. I'd say 8 out of the 10 has some black pigments in different areas. I would avoid if possible. I wont use him again
I've only dealt w/ Eddie once but I will deal with him again at every opportunity, my fish went out same day as ordered & arrived at my doorstep alive & well next morning. Reasonable shipping very friendly, works for me! Thanks Bill Root
Every time I order from Eddie I am taken away by the quality of the livestock. He takes his time in choosing fish that only meet his strict criteria. Im glad he just doesnt send me a bunch of sick fish to fill an order. Bluegrass Aquatics really makes my hobby enjoyable. Knowing that with my busy schedule I can order fish from Bluegrass and get everything I could ask for and more. I strongly urge anyone to use Blugrass Aquatics as their cichlid resource. I want to say thanks again for the awesome fish ands I will be placing many more orders with Bluegrass Aquatics in the future.
I really don't understand all the positive reviews for this seller since my experience was the polar opposite! I ordered from Bluegrass because they claimed to offer cichlids that nobody else had. Wrong! They sent me garbage fish that I could have purchased anywhere; nothing that I actually ordered was sent and many of the sub fish arrived DOA. I called and this guy Ed (I think it is a one-man operation and the guy claimed to be a former priest, I find this hard to believe since he is so dishonest)and he claimed he ran out of the fish I ordered so he substituted. K, thanks for telling me upfront; I would have requested a refund. He tried to tell me how great the fish were that he graciously sub-ed for me. Ed told me he'd give me a credit since he sent me about $10 worth of fish for an order of more than $200. He told me to wait until the weather got better; then he'd make me whole. I was disappointed but thought this small retailer deserved another chance. Well, the next time I called -- about a month later -- Ed claimed to have no idea what I was talking about; isn't voluntary amnesia great! I signed up with Cichlid Forum just so I could tell my story and save other cichlid lovers from this scammer. I think he has changed his business name which should tell you something. Also, all of the garbage fish Bluegrass sent me have died -- they weren't just the wrong fish, they were unhealthy too (good thing my other fish weren't infected).
I just bought 21 fish from Eddie. I went in to visit his setup. Which was done really nice. Clean and clear water, and most of all healthy stock! He let us right in to check it all out. I ended up seeing a group of fish I had to have. I will use Eddie again.
Just ordered and received a wild pair of adult Herichthys pearsei. Fish arrived in prime condition and they are GORGEOUS!! No fin or skin damage whatsoever, and started eating like pigs the minute I put them in the tank.

Can't be happier with the experience. Will definitely repeat!
PS. Was hoping to get a pair of Vieja argentea that Eddie had, but acted too late....
I have been doing busines with Eddie for the past 2 years and I have always enjoyed my buying experience. He has a lot of rare fish and his selection is unbeatable. He takes time to answer any questions you may have and only sells you what you need; not pushy! I highly recommend Eddie!
Eddie was very quick to take my order and get it shipped out. He was very easy to make arrangements with, and was willing to give a quantity discount. The quality of the fish was great, and the size of the fish was what I expected and larger(and there was an extra). Packaging of the fish was also of good quality. Overall, I recommend him to any body, and will be ordering from him again.
Edit: Had some slight problems and Eddie was very quick to resolve the problem.He is also very easy to contact and will keep in touch until the problem is resolved. Still highly recommend.
I calld eddie and he was very accomidating. He gave me all the info I asked for, was quick to take my order and even upgraded my shipping at no charge. I got my fish overnight. 31 fish, and not one DOA. He did throw in a few extra which was nice but missed 4 fish that I had ordered. I called on the problem and he was very accomidating. I ordered more fish, and he discounted them all, threw in the four he missed the last time and gave a discount on shipping. Eddie even made sure that there was at least one male (as far as he could tell) and one female in each species batch I ordered. Overall great expirience and this guy will not let you down.
