SICichlids will get more business from me. I am very pleased with the service I received. Anthony is great at staying in communication with the buyer, online and by phone. Anthony is pleasant to work with, and shows concern about giving good service at all times. After I received my fish, he gave me some pointers that proved valuable. He worked to provide fast service briefing me along the way. I plan to purchase more fish from SICichlids.
I have used Si cichlids twice, and Anthony really knows his stuff. He has an amazing stocklist with good sizing, quality, and pricing. I have talked to Anthony on many occasions and he is open to share his vast knowledge. Shipping is a not event as his fish are packed in double bags with heat packs. Even included a couple of extras in with the order!
I bought a group of C. Furcifer Ruziba from him. Communications were outstanding, packaging was outstanding, no hassles whatsoever. The flight even missed a connection and the package arrived four hours late. For the first time in my whole history of buying fish, there were NO casualties and NO stress to the fish. Quite an amazing feat. I couldn't recommend him enough.
Anthony of SICichlids is not only extremely knowledgeable about fish but also one of the nicest guys you ever want to talk to and do business with. I spoke to Anthony for over 30 about my tanks and what I was looking to do and he gave me great suggestions. I also received a shipment of 8 kitumba cyps and pair of kilesas. Fish arrived healthy and gorgeous. Fish were double baggged nicely boxed with heating strips. Anthony also sent me a note with the tracking information as well as a note checking to make sure the fish arrived safely. Again, Anthony is a great guy to deal with and I look forward to doing business with him in the future.
anthony is one of the few honest guys out there. i've been screwed a few times buying online. Anthony has one of the best prices and great quality fish. and he gave me great prices and extra fish. he is definetly recommended. honest and very reasonable the best of the best. this is only the first of many orders.
Anthony was a great help from the start. He found me the fish that I was looking for, held them until I was ready for them and the shipment arrived as agreed upon. All fish were healthy, beautiful and very lively. There were zero loss. He was extremely helpful and informative towards the requirements of the fish. I would highly recommend Anthony and SICICHLIDS to anyone looking for high quality fish at a great price!
After doing business with Si 4 times, I can say Anthony is as Knowledgable as they come. His fish are second to none, and his prices are GREAT. He WILL NOT SELL any fish that he thinks are not up to his HIGH STANDARDS. Give SI a try, you will not be disappointed. Rob "NJ"
This transaction was very easy. I found SICICHLIDS to be very informative and helpful with everything from stocking and compatibility issues, to helping provide food and shells. SICICHLIDS returned all of my calls and emails promptly, answering all my questions. The fish were packed very well and shipped on schedule. They arrived as expected, very happy and healthy. All were in great shape and I had ZERO losses. I highly recommend SICICHLIDS and I will definitely do more business with him in the future.
I just bought some Paracyprichromis nigrippinis from SIcichlids the other day. My first purchase there, but I'm sure I'll return. The fish were very healthy and are all now settled into my tank.
Anthony is very knowledgable and very helpful. He gave good advice, threw in a couple extra fish, and turned me on to the food he uses with some samples. He let me know that if you need a particular fish, even if he doesn't have it at the moment, he might have friends that do.
Anthony is one of the best and most knowledgeable in the hobby. He always comes through even it requires that he goes out of his way. Price is alays very very competitive and fish are in top shape- because he won't sell it to you if the fish come in looking unhealthy. He doesn't just do it for the money for I can talk fish with him for hours on the phone. If you want to buy fish, don't you wish to buy them from a gentleman/ fish head? I know you do. Give him a call, you won't regret it - trust me. All the best, Wayne
I live in Butte MT, which is a very tough area for air shipping. I called Anthony with a plethora of stupid questions, and he answered all of them expertly. He made several excellent suggestions regarding compatible species and stocking levels. I placed a fairly large order, and he was very good about keeping me informed of the progress, and checking to make sure they all arrived in good health. This is the first time I've ordered from SI Cichlids, but it certainly won't be the last! Thanks again Anthony!
I bought 15 Demasoni from SI Cichlids, he sent 17 just for good measure, you’re not going to get that kind of service from your LFS. Every fish was individually bagged and they all showed very few signs of stress upon arrival. I was cautious about buying fish on line but Anthony made the experience a positive one. The shipping was great, fish quality is great, and he's very personable and willing to help. Anthony offers a wide variety of Cichlids and I recommend him highly, you can't beat his prices and you can't beat the quality. I wish I had more tanks :)
Ordered some hard to find fish and Anthony of SI Cichlids came through for me, what more could I ask for.He's got great pricing, awesome stock, and an eye for quality. Can't go wrong with SI Cichlids. I know I will be a long term customer.
Anthony is a good guy to deal with. He is accurate on his sizes and only deals with quality fish. I got wild caught paracyps, and bunch of mbuna. He also did a favor for me and sent out some wild caught Kitumba Frontosa that I purchased from someone else in his area. The person I got the fronts from actually turned me onto SI cichlids and I since Anthony was kind enough to do this person a favor and send me the fronts I knew he was a stand up guy. I couldn't be happier with my fish. Thanks again Anthony.
Anthony is great! He actually sought me out after I posted a "wanted" add and then answered every annoying question I asked. =) Fish (+ extras) arrived in good shape...very professional packaging. And he continues to check up on the fish and answer my annoying questions. =)
