I ordered some fish that were going to be shipped via air and I was a bit worried about the box being cold and the fish dead, as I have rarely received a "good" order through the "mail". Kurt mostly handled my order and he was very friendly and maintained supurb communication throughout the whole deal. He was very caring in that he wanted to know how the fish were when I got them. When I opened the box, the first thing I did was feel the side hoping it was still warm. IT WAS! I knew then that I was unlikely to greet a disaster. They secured the heat pack in a place where it could not get wet. The fish were all alive! When I finally got them home and in their tanks, I marvelled at what great shape they were in and how gorgeous they were. No torn fins, no chunks missing, no disease, no nothing. The fish were in perfect condition and high quality. I would not hesitate to deal with RMC again. I got the feeling that they are true hobbyists and care about the animals. I never lost a single fish and when I fed them the next day, they ate like they had never travelled a thousand miles through the air.
We just received our fish order from RMC,and we were verry pleased with the quality of the fish and the way the order was handeled.Sam is aiming to please and we all realy apreciate that.This was a great experience,the fish are great and the prices are great too.We will do bussiness again for sure and I recomended to everybody that wants a worry free transaction.Thanx again.IOAN
Kurt and Sam were very patient with our group as we changed our minds as often as we changed our socks. In the two boxes not one fatality. Even the cyps were happy and active on arrival which was well over 12 hours in their bags. Thanks again Sam and we will be in touch for more of your stock. [email protected]
I have recently completed an order with Kurt at Rocky Mountain Cichlids and I must say it was probably one of the best overall online purchases I have ever made. The service and super quick replies from Kurt were great, very helpful and very knowledgeable. The whole process went great. All 12 fish arrived nice and healthy and have been going strong for 4 days now. On top of it all, their prices are very good too. I look forward to my next order from them and I fully recommend them for anyone else too.
RMC is excellent! The responsiveness, excellent prices, and good selection are all among the best on the web. I wouldn't hesitate doing business with Kurt again. I have dealt with over a dozen online mail-order suppliers and RMC is tops among them! Received extra fish as well!
After doing quite a bit of research I decided to place an order with RMC. I decided to purchase some Cyprichromis Kitumba, Lamp.Melagris, and some Bristlenose plecos. I was very impressed with Kurt's excellent service. He was quick to respond to any email inquiries and questions I had. I was also impressed by the vast selection of Tanganyikan and Malawi cichlids that he had for sale and the excellent layout of his website. Because of Delta Airlines screwup I didn't get to receive my fish until 36 hours after they were packed. Because Sam had done an excellent job of packing my fish I only lost one Cyprichromis! Keep in mind how delicate these fish are and to survive that long while being shipped is a testament to how many packing provisions were put in place to ensure their survival. Within hours of being put in their tanks all of my fish were eager to eat and were already showing their colors. If you are interested in purchasing very high quality Malawi and Tanganyikan cichlids I would strongly recommend RMC. I have a business trip to make to Denver later this year and Kurt and Sam said they would be more than happy to give me a tour of their facilities. I will definitely do business with RMC again. I should also note that with my order I had some extra fish thrown in for free and my plecos were upgraded to albino bristlenose free of charge. This company promises and overdelivers! Highly recommended! Just received another shipment - Benga/Cobue Peacocks, O.Ventr
i got my shippment in the coldest time of the year during the christmas rush. was packaged very well. no loses what so ever. will buy from again. kurt is a very nice guy and true to his word. thanks brad
I was impressed by the size and colors of my Tanganikans. Some were by far the largest I've ever recieved and still classified as jouveniles. 2 Cyprichromis were starting to color, several of the meleagris were well over an inch, not one of the calvus was under an inch and the transcriptus were all 1-1.5 inches. The melagris were fighting over the best shells and all showed great color an hour after introductions to their new homes. Didn't loose one fish out of 57 Tanganyikans in the middle of December. All were profesionally packed. Service and communication were top notch.
Purchased some Plecos from Kurt. He was very pleasant to deal with, the fish look great too! In the future I plan on getting some more of his fish!!!!! His selection is great and his prices are very reasonable!!!
has used this retailer 1 time.

"Excellent person to deal with. "
Kurt is an excellent person to deal with. He was the only dealer to have the fish that I had been looking for the longest time. Even after shipping the fish (which arrived in great shape), Kurt followed up to make sure the order was as expected. This is the type of service that others can't compete with, and should model after. What more can you ask for, great price and service. I would not hesitate to deal with Kurt again. Thanks again!
I am very pleased with RMC. This is the second time getting fish from these guys in six months and that’s because I have limited tank space. What an amazing assortment of fish and most are very rare and hard to find species. I asked Sam to fine me a Foai karilani male to go with my four females and sure enough he found one.. and a WC at that. Keep up the great work guys...I’ll be back!!!
"Outstanding service along with top notch cichlids!"
I am a 1st time online purchaser and my experience with Kurt was superb. He exemplifies what every online vender should strive for. His stock, service, packaging, promptness and concern are outstanding. He made sure I knew everything I needed to and answered any and all questions honestly to include a follow up phone call. I couldn't be happier with my experience and fish (including the free F1 ones) and will definitly go back as a repeat customer when the time comes. I highly suggest you give him a go, you will NOT be disappointed!
cant begin to describe how awesome of an experence this was. top quality fish, and awesome prices. communication was very good, kurt cares more about customer satisfaction than anything else. dont know what else to say, but try him out yourself to see how great of a experence it is.
