"Great Selection and Quality of New World Cichlids"
Got a pair of exCichlasoma grammodes from Jeff Rapps Tangled Up In Cichlids 3 days ago. Expert packaging, reasonable prices, awesome quality and has a better selection of cichlids than anyone! Jeff really knows what he is doing and anyone who is interested in New World Cichlids should have no fears from mail ordering from him. He has an amazing selection of fish on hand and I would be very surprised if he does not have what you are looking for..... This is the second time I have ordered from him and both times I was very pleased. All of my future New World Cichlid orders will always go to Jeff. Keep up the good work!!
Jeff didn't just send me some great fish, after I got them I had a few questions about sexing them, as these were not a well known species. He answered my emails quickly, and gave me helpful information. A subsequent shipment was just as good as the first. I will definitely buy from TUIC again.
I went into this order knowing Jeff's reputation for having the best quality New World cichlids around and I have to say he didn't disappoint. The fish arrived in great health, and looked amazing! The only small complaint I have is that he wasn't very prompt with answering my questions through e-mail. Its understandable as I am sure he is very busy. Maybe he needs to hire a couple hands to help him around his new facility, which I hear is amazing.
I am now looking for an excuse to buy from him again. Unfortunately my next order is going to be for tanganyikans so I'll have to go through someone else.
Jeff just does it right. From excellent customer service, to a good quality product at a good price. The CA cichlids and Plecos I recently ordered showed up well packaged, healthy, "happy" and ready to go. The cichlids even started spawning 12 hours after being placed in the tank. A testament to their over all condition and to how well they were packaged and shipped.
i recently ordered some L-number catfish and was impressed with Jeff's service and the fish i received. they were packed excellently and arrived in great shape. Jeff was able to work with me to get them shipped on a day that i was off and checked to make sure they arrived on time. i plan to order some cichlids from him soon. excellent customer service, and a positive experience all around
I have dealt 2 times with Jeff and it has been a pleasure both times. I was looking to stock my 150gal. I told him I wanted some bright colored fish that were easy to maintain. He gave me his list of fish he recomended and the next day I have a tank full of beautiful fish. Six months later all are doing well. Looking forward to doing with buisness with again. highly recomended. Thanks

"Best selection and quality around ..."
Jeff always has interesting and unique fish that pique my interest. Hugely helpful, considerate of questions, and easy to talk to. He stands behind his quality, and is an excellent chap to boot. The first place I look to when I get new fish!
Want good healthy true New World cichlids? Tired of fish growing up to be nothing what you expected? I highly recommend trying out some of Jeff's stock. Quick to reply with answers about questions you might have about your fish and can't go wrong with guaranteed live arrival. Very personable and professional guy. Offered to reimburse me once although the lost fish went against his arrival policy due to delay in flight transit. That alone earned him a customer for life. These fish definately worth the shipping charges.
I ordered fish from Jeff back in 2001, he actually sent them before 9/11 and were stuck at a New York airport for a few days, but when I received them they were alive and healthy, he is a great guy and I would highly recommend him.
