This was the first time dealing with Peter at Atlantis and I was more than happy with the quality of the fish I received. I also appreciated the prompt email responses when I had a question regarding my order. Hopefully, someday I'll be able to visit the facility in person.
It's been a little over a week since my shipment arrived and all I can say is wow! It was like the wild caught Tanganicodus irsacae jumped right out of the lake into my tank. Amazing little gobies in combo with some gorgeous juvie Tropheus duboisi. The wild Synodontis made us say, "oh that's what they're supposed to look like" - unbelieveable and at 1/3 the cost of most LFS in our area.
There was one tiny hiccup in the order, and I kid you not Peter was giving me a call and corrected the problem within 30 minutes of me sending them an email, on a Friday late afternoon no less.
Bottom line just based on the color and healthy/spunkyness of the fish I received I absoultely recommend Atlantis without hesitation.
If you really want to torture yourself check their website every few days, there's always something new. Right now they have an amazing selection of wild caught, and of course just an amazing selection period.
I'm setting up a another Tropheus/goby (hope E. cyanosticus Kasanga) tank, next order will most certainly be with them!
"Beautiful fish at great prices, excellent communication and shipping"
Many thanks to Peter for helping me out. He had the fish I wanted for 1/4 of the LFS cost. The difference in price more than made up the shipping costs and I still came out ahead.
My tank wasn't cycled when I made my enquiries, and they were able to hold the fish for me (with prepayment) until the cycle had completed. When I was ready, the fish were shipped very quickly.
All the fish look like they're in great condition, much better than the LFS had available.
Peter is extremely helpful, and can be easily contacted via email or phone. He's also very knowledgeable, and was willing and able to answer several questions I had.
I'd definitely order from them without any reservations.

"Despite airlines error fish arrived safely"
I have used Atlantis several times and have had great luck. This last time the airlines shipped the fish to the wrong airport and and I didn't receive them for three days. When I opened the boxes the fish were still alive. Thanks to Pete for properly bagging the fish which kept them alive when the airlines lost them.
I ordered 4 fish from Jon. He was very friendly and informative. They are in NY and I live in CA. The fish arrived healthy and beautiful. I had specific needs and Atlantis Tropical Fish came through flawlessly. I will order from them in the future.
I've found heaven on earth! Picture walking into a place with over 1,000 tanks of some of the best quality fish you've ever seen ... now picture this ... not only high quality fish but great prices ... now add to that the owner of the place, Peter, is there to greet you and one of the nicest guys you ever want to meet with an in depth knowledge of all these fish and an assistant, Jenn, that is equally knowledgeable!!! Not possible on this earth you say?! It's true and that is why I think Atlantis is heaven on earth!! Seriously folks if you're in the tri-state area I highly recommend you make the trip to Gardiner, NY and visit Atlantis. And for you folks too far to drive I recommend ordering from Peter ... you won't be disappointed. I've been to Atlantis about 5 times this past year (just went yesterday) and have never been disappointed. I brought my broter-in-law from Virginia last year and for the first hour he just wandered around with his mouth open ... he couldn't believe the quality of fish! He even bought some and brought them home with him and has ordered from Atlantis on line, since. Do yourself a favor ... if you want great fish, great prices and great servirce ... Atlantis is the place to go!! Here is their website address ... http://www.cichlids.net/index.php
I finally made the pilgrimage to Atlantis...and I couldn't be happier! The quality of stock was phenomenal! The quality of the personal service was even better. Peter took the time to help me with a locale and it was a pleasure to listen to him. The cleanliness of his business was outstanding. The Cichlids, all inclusive, were outstanding. The Plecos and Eels were like taking me into a candy store. Jenn is also a great asset to Atlantis. Her dedication and time to help me were second to none. Her venting skills are the best that I have ever seen., and she is also another reason why I will be back to Atlantis. Peter, you made me a customer for life...Thank You!
I have had some trouble in the past with online fish retailers. ATLANTIS WAS FANTASTIC! Not only was the selection very nice - lots of variety, but the people were amazingly friendly. They were helpful with advice and logistics (the flight was delayed 6 hours). Dispite the delay in shipping (no fault of Atlantis) the fish were fine. No losses. All fish were very healthy, and most were larger than advertized. They even took it upon themselves notto ship a fish that had been roughed up in QT before shipping. This assured me of getting very healthy stock, and they credited my card. I will DEFINATELY shop with Atlantis again. Great folks, great fish!
One of the most knowledgeable tropical fish places around. Plenty of wild stock & F1s for sale. Peter, John, Jen together they make an excellent team... The fish are great the prices are even better. Jen has been able to vent fish faster than anyone I have ever met who deal with African cichlids.... The fish are healthy and very colorful. The things you can learn just by paying a visit. I Just can't give enough compliments to these true professionals at Atlantis Tropical Fish Hatchery... So many wild breeder tank setups.. and yes they are friendly..... THE PRICE IS RIGHT.....

I have ordered at least 10 different varieties of fish from Atlantis and am extremely pleased with the quality of each line of fish I have received. Each fish is a beautiful example of what the fish should be. They have guided me honestly in selecting compatable fish and have always been up front about the quality and status of a particular line of fish that I am interested in. I have found their selection and variety of cichlids to be very large. In short, I highly recomend Atlantis.
Wanting to have rare fish, I add Atlantis to my internet home pages. They restock fresh African fish on regular basis and sometimes I found pretty rare fish I long for. Go check their stock. Albino Paracyps., Lestradea perspicax and Tanganyikan Killies are wonderful additions for this time. Always making great deal with friendly service. I recomend Atlantis A++++.
Again & again...no disappointment....great job...thanks
Once again..Peter has done a wonderful job shipping the fish out to me at 20degrees...btw awesome paracyps......
GREAT PERSON AND VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE...GREAT LOOKING MOBA FRONTS...BETTER THAN WHAT I EXPECTED...WILL DEFINETELY RECOMMEND AND BUY FROM AGAIN...THANKS...BTW VERY FAST QUALITY SHIPPING FOR AN AFFORDABLE RATE...THANKS
