Anthony is a great guy to work with. I placed a decent size order and I was well taken care of. There was a delay due to the airline which was not his fault and he stayed up late and called the air cargo company to make sure I got the fish the same day. His selection and prices are very fair. I have ordered fish from several mail order businesses and in my opinion, SI Cichlids is the best out of all the sellers I have dealt with. Anthony has definitely gained a loyal customer in me.
This was my 1st time ordering fish on-line. Anthony was great to deal with. He gave me a few options for shipping, gave his recommendation and did all the work making sure I was comfortable and knew where to go at the airport.
Fish arrived when and where they were supposed to.
Packing was well done - no issues. He threw in an extra Cyp and Multie which was greatly appreciated!
About a month later, they are all happy and healthy.
Would definitely buy from Anthony again and highly recommend SI Cichlids.
Just made my first purchase from Anthony, a group of multies. Gave me a tour of his fish room and his stock is truly exceptional. So many unique fish that it was killing me I didn't have more tank space to get some more fish. But I'll be back for sure.
I had a great experience ordering from SI. Anthony was excellent. I live in Montana and it is next to impossible to find quality Tang cichlids and SI has a good variety. Good prices- shipping was fast- no deaths- extra fish and some shells for the L. ocellatus that I ordered. I would certainly recommend SI to anyone and will use them in the future.
I just arrived home with my order from the AP from Anthony. Great contact and exceptional packing. The way it should be done. As for as the fish all appear healthy, will update when they are settled and accustomed to their new home. Will definitely do business again.
SI cichlids is the first place I go for tangs. Not only is he very professional and knowledgeable, but his stock is of the highest quality. His fish room is excellent and his fish are always happy and breeding. Top notch fish breeder overall.
Anthony of sicichlids is very professional. his fish are very healthy and he packs the fish very good.i will deal with him again and i'll recomend all my friends to him as well.thanks for the great fish..
I just bought a group of 13 tropheus moorii lupota for anthony. he was a pleasure to deal with, and before i left he made sure i understood everything he had to say. i will definetly buy from him again.
Nothing negative to say about my purchase. Anthony is a true hobbyist who takes pride in his fish. Great looking, healthy fish and EXCELLENT SERVICE! Great communication, fish bigger than advertised, and even sent extras! I won't hesitate to give business in the futute!
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. =)
really can't say enough good things about Anthony and SICichlids.com. Great variety, top quality fish, great guy, extremely knowledgeable and really takes the time out for you. I took fish home from him on a Saturday and they were breeding in my tank by monday! Everything was very well maintained to ensure top quality. This was my first time using SICichlids.com and it definitely wont be the last.
with purchasing from SICichlids.com Has a vast selection of quality cichlids...both wild caught and tank raised... at a price that can't be beat!!! Owner also a top quality guy that is easy to do biz with...
The first time I went to his fish room i was so impressed by his set ups that i became depressed I have little tank room left. Everything was that good. Anthony the owner will work with you explaining anything you might not understand. He is a flat out nice guy. Another really nice thing is if Anthony does not have the fish in stock he can get it in a reasonable amount of time. When he told me how much he wanted for the fish I borough from him cost I almost felt I was cheating him.
Do yourself a favor check out Anthony at SIcichlids.com
GREAT fish have gotten about 20 fish from here and have never lost a one. they all have ate well once home ( i drove 2hr up to his place for pick up and have got fish from his stock at auction)the and most important is they look great but has been willing to ship to Philly for more then a fair price will buy from him again. also just a very helpful guy if you need help
These fish are 1st quality and very healthy. They could breed in the bag on the way home :D Great price for everything! Very happy with the fish purchased and will buy anytime again. Great person too to do business with :)
SI Cichlids is now offering a large variety of cichlids from their website. I recently ordered a group of seven Lemon Jake Peacocks. Anthony was a pleasure to deal with and the fish are top quality. When the package arrived, he had sent me 10 instead of the 7 I had ordered, and they all arrived fiesty and ready to eat. His prices are great, and shipping is extremely reasonable to east coast customers.
I cannot recommend SI Cichlids highly enough. If you want great quality fish from one of the most knowledgeable fish guys around, give SI Cichlids a try.
By the way, I noticed yesterday, one of the females is holding. Thanks Anthony! Keep up the great work!
