Visited Dave's Rare Fish in June. http://www.gcca.net/gccaforum/index.php?topic=1162.0 Astounded at the numbers of fish/aquariums/species. He gave me a tour and assisted with species suggestions as well as references back to his many books for additional information. Really amazed. He helped me put together a recipe for my tank that is going great and continues to assist when asked by e-mail. I wasn't able to take in all of his shop while we were there but look forward to another trip.
I purchased a group of three different Victorians from Dave - Dayglows, Red Tail Shellers and Rubys. All came in great shape with top of the line packaging. Dave has the best Vic selection that I have ever seen and I will definitely buy again. Thanks Dave!!
I have put together quite a few group buys over the years. This was my first time ordering from Dave. I was quite impressed with how well organized the shipment went. The fish I ordered were in great shape and quality. They are now enjoying their new home. Thanks again Dave, I'll be back.
I got my order in today and all the fish were in excellent shape. His selection of Mbuna were just unbelievable. I spoke to Dave on the phone and he is extremely freindly and knowledgable. Did I mention the colors! Thanks Dave!
From the first moment that you speak with Dave you know that you are dealing with a class act. We did a group buy that spanned two airport...yes, two airports, and everything was perfect. My order included Mbuna, Vics and Synodontis...and I am not sure which group I am happiest about as they are ALL stunning looking fish. Dave, thanks, you have a customer for life! Bill
Just got back from a trip to San Antonio and made trip to Daves store...If you are ever there, I HIGHLY recomemnd stopping by. It is definitely no frills, only fish and mainly if not totally cichlids. Tanks were in excellent condition, and the selection and prices were amazing. And Dave is just an awesome guy. Very helpful and knowledgeable. I did not buy anything this trip, but I will be back in December and will definitely be getting something
this was the first time i ordered fish online and Dave was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. the fish arrived healthy and looked very good. only online store i will deal with for fish he has a great selection and is very good about setting up ship dates with you and tries to save you money where he can. what can i say Dave is the best
"Great place to satisfy your african cichlid fix!"
Dave's Rare Aquarium Fish is an awesome place to visit. Too bad the shop is in Texas, I live in Maryland. Dave is friendly and answered all my questions while I was visiting San Antonio on a business trip. The fishes shipped via Southwest Airlines and into my tanks with zero losses. It was a pleasure do business with him!
I haven't even made it to San Antonio yet, but already Dave has another loyal customer! He offered to babysit my fish for me there until I arrive and has since received my shipment and is holding my stock of fish as I write. Extremely friendly, knowledgable, and he bends over backward to help out his fellow aquarists in need.
