"Very good fish"
I have now bought from Greg three times. I am still growing out most of what I bought but it all looks good. He is not the cheapest guy in town but gave me a break on larger orders. The wild caught I got from him were amazing and are breeding like rabbits. I have heard others say bad things about him but I have been nothing but pleased and will buy from him again.My only complaint is that he can be a little hard to get a hold of or get to respond to emails. Probably because he is so busy.

"Top Quality Wild Specimens"
I received my order in and I must say I'm impressed with the quality of the specimens I ordered. They were stunning like how he described them on his site. So if you're looking for top quality wild and tank bred Africans, Greg is the man.

"Be careful who you shop with"
My experience was not a good one. Said trophs had some slight swelling in the eyes. I said to send them and I would treat, which was a mistake. Fish had dramatic bilateral swollen eyes. Certain sign of bacterial infection. Treated with oxytetra. No improvement and made the other group I ordered from him sick as well. I made the mistake of QTing them together. I tried everything, multiple antibiotics, parasitic meds, etc. Nothing worked and I believe it was a nasty virus as others who got fish around that time also lost many fish. I ended up losing 35+ wild tropheus after it was all said and done. No apology, no offer of any financial restitution, no offer of a future discount of any kind.

To top it off, he didn't sex the benthos I ordered correctly and I paid over market price for them.

All in all, not a great experience. Be careful who you buy from. Things aren't always what they seem and I was very disappointed with my experience with LAA

Ordered 20 Mpimbwe but only had 16, so the other four are Kavala Yellow, which is just fine with me.

Friendly, communicates well via email, answered phone when I called.

Excellent packaging!

Gave me a break on cost and actually Greg actually ate a higher shipping cost because he wanted to make sure the fish were packaged even more securely due to the heat.

VERY pleased and will be buying from him again & again!

"Be careful, might get what you ordered, or something else"
Nice guy, impressive list of fish, but seems a bit sloppy with segregating fry and properly identifying what he has. Out of 12 petrochromis, one was not the variant I ordered. It tells me that he mixes fish too similar in appearance and then isn't careful when separating them out. Also, ordered c. foai 'sibwesa'. Got something else, c. furcifer 'who-knows-what'. Couldn't tell until they grew out. So, all in all, very disappointed. Would not order again unless it was something that could positively be identified when very young, a no doubter, and I couldn't find it elsewhere. If you're careful, you can get nice fish, but be forewarned. He also seems to keep a low profile. No web site, no phone number available. He lists only on Aquabid, and that's the only way I know of to reach him until you get his email. The descriptive hyperbole in his Aquabid listings get old too. Hopefully when he lists fish as 'glowing' and it's only because he's photoshopped, people aren't duped by it. Be a smart consumer, ask lots of questions, and you can do ok, just be careful. And lastly, when he sells 'pairs', they aren't necessarily bonded, proven to have bred pairs. And when he lists fish as 'proven', proven to what? Like said, ask lots of questions.

Just read the review above. Like I said, 'might get what you ordered, might get something else'.
