"Buyer Beware!"
Quinns fin sends you crappy, sick fish that are not worth the price they charge. I ordered 8 large male fish for a total of $139. Out of the 8 male fish 2 Socolofi's had sunken belly, 1 Polit had clamped fin, 1 chewere had severe fin rot, 1 rusty and blue moori were medium and not large. I was quite disappointed in my fish. I reached out to Baron and he did ship me a replacement for the chewere but only after charging me for a upgrade to a showfish and charge of a rusty that he gave me for free in the beginning. So after weeks and my Polit did not show any black and white color I reached out to Baron again saying this must be a female because the fish is a dull grey and blue color. He responded that the fish is suppose to be that color. Well i don't know what planet you are on Baron but Large Male polits are suppose to be white or ice blue and black. After requesting to have the polit replaced baron stopped responding. I reached out numerous times via email and phone with no reply. Do not order fish from them, I repeat do not waste your time are money or you will be quite disappointed in what you receive. they are quick to take your money put when requesting to have a replacement fish its like pulling teeth. Quinns fin give you crappy, sick, damaged fish do not order from them ever! What a waste of $139 bucks!

"A Lot of Varieties & Sizes available"
Very Reasonable Prices & Shipping Charges! I love that I am able to pick a larger size & guaranteed sex! I have an All Male Peacock/Hap/Mbuna Tank & it was such a blessing to get larger fish that are guarantteed Males without having to buy a bunch of unsexed ones & hope for males out of them! All Types of African Cichlids are listed plus some other types as well! I have only had 1 DOA & was immediately credited. All my fish have looked good except 1 had some torn fins which mended quickly & they have all colored up nicely soon after there arrival except for a couple of Haps that take a long time to get there color but once it came in, it was gorgeous!!

"Not worth the price and stress on the fish"
The website looked nice and the fish looked good in the pictures. I ordered 3 male cichlids (paid premium for males). When they arrived, one of them was bloated and could not swim straight (died within 2 days). The second was a different type that the one I ordered. The third turns out is a female instead of the male I paid for. Based on the comments it seems that the store used to be good but the quality is now mediocre at best. darn! Those very good looking fish in the website are so misleading.

"Buyers Beware"
I have collected and bred African Cichlids for many years.
During that time I have bought and had hundreds of fish shipped from all over the US.
I take pride in the hobby especially when it comes to breeding and providing people with quality fish.
My first order placed with Baron was for a total of 11 large males all asst species.
Boy was I disappointed with what I received.
Most of the fish were so drab in color for being "large", and still are, and they were all on the small side of his scale.
Out of the 11 fish shipped I was shorted a Eureka Red, two had sunken in stomachs, several had badly torn fins, and only two of the fish were what I would consider worth the cost.
Naturally I complained and Baron seemed concerned and agreed to replace 3 fish and reship the Eureka Red he had shorted me on the first order.
Now you would think being that I was shorted the Eureka he would be sure to send a nice fish for the misunderstanding. Not the case! The eureka male he sent looked worse than any fish from the first shipment and the replacements were not only smaller fish but didn't look any better. Now I don't know how his fish are kept but I have NEVER received so many crappy fish that were torn up and in bad shape.
You know that one fish that gets picked on in your show tank? That is what most of his fish look like.
Bottom line here is there are so many great places out there to buy quality fish and THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM.

"ok fish for a good price."
A week a go i order 4 large cichlids including a show fish. when fish arrived the day after ordering all of the bags were deflated and leaking "probably happen during shipment". all 4 fish are alive and well but have no color yet not even the show fish even after a week. i do understand that it can take some time but i would say i was better off getting from my local overpriced fish store. i have seen video's with nice looking fish being unboxed from Quinn's so maybe i just got the last batch they need to get rid of. Just wanted to share my experience so not everyone gets their hopes up for beautiful fish and thats not what they see when they open the box. I will keep all of the cichlids that i ordered and hopefully sooner or later they will color up so they will go with all of the other cichlids i have in my tank with beautiful colors.

"Very pleased..."
Chose Quinn's Fins to stock a 65 gallon tank due to best combination of selection, price plus the ability to have the fish sexed. They all arrived in great shape, just what I ordered and are still all doing great. I will certainly order from Quinn's Fins again.

"Dang It."
I hate to be the first to write something negative, but I've ordered allot of fish online, from more than 6 different places. Sooo, I purchased 2 "large" peacocks from Quinns Fins and sad to say, that they was probably about 2.5" and the quality was terrible, was online purchase of fish I've EVER received. It is the only negative I can say, size and quality is terrible.

"Excellent retailer, no complaints"
I've ordered from Quinn's Fins 3 times and have not been disappointed. Quality fish. excellent shipping. Each fish individually bagged and labeled so you know what fish it is. iI would not hesitate to order from them again. I just wish they had a larger selection of peacocks so that I could order more!

After a very bad experience with bluegrass (read my review) I decided to try quinns fins after watching several unboxing videos on youtube. Im sure glad I did. All 10 fish I ordered were in separate bags, they looked great and I had zero loss. And the prices for males were a lot lower than other sites. Try these guys and you won't be sorry.

"Great communication and price"
Placed a small order for my all-male hap/peacock setup.
They were very responsive to emails and were able to work with me to arrange that the fish arrived on a specific day.

All fish arrived in separate bags with all males showing at least some color. It's now a few months later and the fish sold to me as males are definitely males, so that's always appreciated!

All-in-all a great experience. Would order again

"Fantastic looking fish!"
Twice i've ordered from Quinns fins now and both times i was amazed at the ease of ordering, the size and quality of the fish, the packaging and especially the prompt and quick communications. I live in wisconsin so there's always a doubt if fish will make the shipment in the dead of winter but everything Baron and his crew do they do it above par. Don't think twice, go to this vendor and buy their fish! You won't be dissapointed.
