"dead and sick fish"
they are nice when you place the order because they are getting ready to take your money. but when you call back to tell them that they have sick fish they get nasty.ordered about 70 african cichlids 20 came in dead and the next day 20
more died. yellow lab came in with red eyes.
just like what the other reviews said save your money. yes their fish are cheap but when you get dead sick and hybrids they are worthless. stay away

"Happy with the fish"
I got a Medusa Plec from TFD 2 wks ago. He got here healthy with a rounded stomach and remains active & seems healthy. Judging from the other 2 reviews I might've just gotten lucky.

"Absolutely TERRIBLE!!!"
I couldn’t agree more with the other review above. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t see it until I came here to make sure I posted one myself to warn others.

When my shipment arrived, 6 demasonis were already dead, and the ones that were alive looked like someone put them in a pencil sharpener. They were a mess, fins torn apart, their heads were all cut up and some cases bleeding. The fish that were alive (barely) immediately sunk down to the bottom of my tank and still haven’t recovered. 2 more were dead within hours, and the pleco I got was dead this morning (after 3 days in the tank). I’m actually embarrassed for them. I was horrified at the condition of the fish. The only response I get from "Joe" is "They’re all healthy here". I was told I could send them all back and I would be refunded for the fish, but not shipping. $50 to ship them to me, then whatever it costs to send back... and all I get back is the cost of the fish. Which, is now less than the shipping.

PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE do yourself a favor and stay away from these guys. You really do get what you pay for; maybe the fish really were just too cheap. In the end, I paid for 15, and if I have 2 alive by weeks end id be shocked.

"Oh I thought I was ordering live and healthy fish! Forgot it was opposites day!"
Please as a follow hobbyist don't order from them, for the sake of you fish and your wallet. I not kidding, infact I'm almost too embarressed, but if it wasn't for the fact that I lost so much to these guys I wouln't be writing this review. I ordered from them in the summer, so it took me a while to calm down to a point where I can write a review without vular profanity. I lost maybe a grand in term of fish value. My order was a few hundred dollars, got my fish alot DOA, actually stupid enough to give me the wrong fish, within a week 50 percent of the fish died and within a month all I had left was L-270 and a rope fish. The worst part is those fish infect my other fish, and within the same month I had lost all of my fish in one tank some how my discus were able to hang in there, I don't know maybe it was the lot money I had to spend on medicine,and in my other tank one of my flowerhornXparrot died and the rest have become infected with capillaria, thank god for prazi-pro.

Don't be fooled by the low prices, it because you are getting #%$&. I used to work at petco and you know as well as I do those fish suck, TFD isn't too far behind petco. I really mean it when I say don't order. They are a million other places to order from. TFD isn't cheap, dead fish are worth nothing, and killing your fish cost you money.
