"Was a great supplier "
Have purchased many fairly large orders from Ken's but lately everything is out of stock and there are no answers to emails or the phone. I had great service in the past but have had to go elsewhere for most things now. I wonder if he is just selling off what stock he has left over. It would be great if we had the supplier back that we had a few years ago. It would be great to hear from Ken and to understand what has happened

"Great products/prices - but where'd the service go?"
I've dealt with Ken's Fish many times over the past 8 years. Great products, great prices. However, my last order went sideways - I was sent a wrong Seachem Product and several online requests, emails and phone messages went unanswered. Things do go wrong, Ken corrected a right several years earlier, but there wasn't even an attempt to make my last (now final) order right.

That is too bad, Kensfish was my go to online retailer, but there are other options where service still means something.

"overall great to deal with."
I recently purchase 2 items from Kensfish. When i received the package, there was only 1 item. The other item will be direct ship, as stated on the invoice. After waiting a week, i decided to email and use the messaging system on kensfish.com with no luck. I waited 3 more days then decided to call. Although, i didn't get through to ken the first time, he eventually picked up. It was a pleasure talking to him as he came off very nice and helpful. I myself read a lot of reviews on how "short" and "rude" ken can be so i dreaded the thought of speaking with him over the phone, but this was not the case. He was super helpful and made sure my order will be received immediately. Overall a great experience! A+

"good prices, poor customer service"
While setting up a new aquarium, I placed two orders totaling a bit over $650 with Ken's. A question sent regarding proper tubing size went unanswered until I telephoned. Pricing was good, though not always the best. Shipping a bit slow, but I was repainting and awaiting a carpet install before I set up my new tank; so no harm, no foul.

When I set up my new tank, I discovered the Eheim/Jager heater had come with the suction cups but no mounting bracket. Again I sent a message to Ken's and again received no response.

While I don't blame the vendor for the missing part, this is always a risk one takes when ordering online. The mark of a good online vendor is how they handle these issues. Ken failed here. I got the bracket on Amazon for a little less than $10 and will not use Ken's again. As others have written, he is a good deal as long as things go well. Otherwise, use at your own risk. A shame to lose customers over an item that would have cost him a couple of bucks.

Called them on the phone about a week before I ordered because I had some questions. He was most helpful and took his time answering all my questions. I placed my order late in the morning, got a confirmation later that afternoon. I had no problem ordering the minimum amount in order to get the free shipping. One week later my order was at my door perfectly in tact with everything that I had ordered. His prices are great, it pays to shop around and I also took advantage on some of his specials.

Price was great, cheapest of anywhere I looked. And lots to choose from. However, it took them a very long time to ship it (I got an email notification that a shipment slip was created through UPS, but it didn't get shipped for SEVERAL days). Plus, by the time it did ship, a weekend fell in and it took even longer to recieve. And they didn't respond at all when I eventually emailed them about when my order would be shipped. It was a very frustrating process, but the product is good... soooo.... yeah. If you don't need whatever it is NOW, go for it.

"The Best Place to Get Drygoods!"
I usually stock up with stuff from Ken's every year at the OCA Extravaganza, where Ken has a stand as a vendor. He is nice to talk to and the selection he offers as well as the prices can't be beaten.

This time I forgot to buy some heaters and had to order via Ken's web site. The heaters arrived way faster than expected, but unfortunately were the wrong ones. Seeing that they were an extremely similar model from the same manufacturer, anybody could have made this mistake, but since I am picky, I wanted the ones I ordered.

I emailed Ken, and he shipped replacement heaters the next day at no extra charge, including a shipping voucher to return the wrong heaters. Service doesn't get better than at Ken's!

I destroyed my Python pump after years of regular use and needed a new one. I ordered what I thought was the right one and when it wouldn't work with my existing adapter I wound up destroying it too. At this point my water changes were overdue and I was jittery. I ordered the right part and adapter then from Ken and put in a note with the order that it would help greatly if my order shipped ASAP. Within a couple hours I had an e-mail saying he would ship it first thing in the morning. Sure enough two days later my package arrived and was exactly what I needed to get back in business. I definitely recommend this vendor.

Everytime I go to a show and he is there I buy. Nice decent people. I brought an air pod air pump from him got it home and one side did not work. He then sent me another one at no charge not even shipping and did not ask for the defective one back. Great out standing people. The fish food he offers is good and at a great price also has a great selection.

Don't understand the problems people have had. I just placed another order and after placing it called them with a question about the veggie flakes.He called me back within 15 minutes! I asked about a sample of the spirulina flakes, and he said "No Problem! I throw in several samples for you at no charge! Just let me know what you think, and please order from us again!"

That's fast and friendly service. Who doesn't like a bunch of free samples?

It's nice to know someone actually carry the brand Xtreme Cichlid pellet food that my Cichlid really love. I placed the order Sunday and it arrive on Wednesday...that's pretty fast shipping.

"Bad experience for me!!"
I ordered about $100 worth of food from Kens and unfortunately didn't have a good experience like many of the others. My order took almost two weeks to get here. I have ordered many times from Big Al's, Jehmco and Drsfostersmith and they were way faster.

Anyway, when my order arrived I was missing an item and there wasn't an invoice in the box or anything stating as to where the item was. This is the first company that I have ordered from that doesn't have an invoice inside the delivery box (especially when there is an item missing). I emailed Ken's to let them know I was missing an item and got no reply. I ended up calling them to let them know we were missing an item. The man who answered was pretty short and not friendly and stated how busy they were. On the phone they told me the item was out of stock and they would reship (charging additional shipping) when the item was in stock. I'm really kind of irritated that they would charge my credit card for an item they don't have in stock and then ship out an order and not let you know where the item is!

Kens ended up issuing a credit for the item on my cc.

I will never order from Kens again. There are much faster and professional places like Big Al's, Jehmco and Drsfostersmith

Updated 3/31/2010
Last week I ordered a couple of 5LB buckets of NLS, a bunch of heaters and a 300' roll of silicone airline. I submitted the online order one afternoon and later that evening received UPS tracking information. The order was shipped the day I ordered it and arrived as promised two days later. Come on now...does it get any better than that?

Below is my initial review.
Ken's selection of food and supplies is awesome. I ordered a box load of stuff late one afternoon last week and received an email later that night that the order had already been boxed and picked up for shipment. Two days later UPS delivered it and evrything was as I had expected it to be.

I really like his website. Products are pictured and fully explained. I think his prices are very competitive too. The shopping cart feature is dynamic in that it shows you continual updates as you add items what the total shipping costs will be, so no hidden surprises.

Ken's is definitely a favorite new retailer for me.

"Won't respond to question on quality"
Well, on the recommendation of people here I ordered from Ken's Fish Food. No problem. Then I reorder the same item, NLS and have a quality issue compared to the last batch. All I did was ask in an email if there were any other people that had a problem or whatever and can't even get Ken's to respond in any manner. Simply not acceptable and I guess I'll go back to the bigger shops even though I like to patronize the "little guy". Too bad but won't do business with a supplier that won't answer a question.

I have been getting most of my fish food,and supplies from kens fish lately. They have just about everything I need ,and at some of the best prices around. My order is usually shipped out the next day, and when it arrives, the items are as described , and in good condition.(even a few little extras) I will continue to use kens for most of my aquarium needs. And I would highly recommend that others do the same.

"Good Experience"
Pros: Good variety from both his food and the other premium foods (HBH and NLS). I got his 100% Spirulina and some NLS. Prices are very reasonable and a half pound of flake is surprisingly large (I won't need to buy food for well over a year). I also liked that he offers shipping choices, seeing that USPS was cheaper than UPS for the quantity I ordered. Shipping was prompt. A free sample of food (an ounce or so) was included as well.

Cons: Flake was a little crumbly, but this is not an issue for me as it is for some on this forum. I've never found a flake that doesn't crumble into smaller pieces. If you want uniform size, buy pellets! My fish aren't thrilled with the 100% spirulina, but I've been feeding them NLS since they were fry. They are more apt to eat it if i feed it before the NLS and i think they will slowly get used to it. I only bought it as a "supplement" to the NLS, so this isn't a huge con.

Overall: Quick easy transaction for quality products. Can't really ask for more.

"95% satisfied. Why the 5%? I'll tell you."
I will purchase from Ken again in the future as I have in the past. It's been a couple months since my (2nd) order so I've had plenty of time to evaluate everything w/o over-reating.

He allows returns of merchandise but like any small business, he isn't "thrilled" to do it. (I'm selfemployed and I hate it.) So be careful when ordering. If you experiment with new types of food, and your fish don't like it, be prepared to be stuck with some food.

A year ago, I ordered 1 lb of small floating/sinking pellets that most of my fish wouldn't eat. Is this his fault or mine? Mine I believe. So instead of wasting $5.00 S&H returning $4.50 worth of product, I still have 15.5 oz of it.

However, my last shipment had 2 lbs of newer (supposedly "super") tropical fish flake that was SO thin, it would almost disintegrate upon contact. It was the messiest flake I have ever tried. So he let me exchange it but I had to pay for returning the 3lb shipment (which was fair, sucks but fair).
BUT I wish he would have mentioned on his site that these flakes were really thin. Would have saved him some time and money (shipping out the older, thicker flakes I had previously ordered a year ago) as well as saving me time and money.

This time it's his fault for selling product he knew was too thin. Selling on a fish forum full of picky hardcore fishmaniacs, he should have known better.

But I'll be back. :)

My first experience was very unsatisfactory. My order took over one week to recieve and when I finally received it had one wrong item out of ten. When I tryed to reach them via E-mail and phone all I get is e-mail confirmation 4 days later that says another shipment is going out without any description. I'm guessing it is the missing order, I won't know until I get it. Also I had communicated that I like to return few items explaining that the items don't fit the need for my cichlid. And there still is no response after 8 days. I had used Drsforstersmith 3 times so far and I prefer them 10 times more over Ken's place from this one experience.
Can't say nothing more but dissapointment from nonexistant service.

I ordered some of Ken`s soft and moist with krill and the fish seem to really like it. I enjoy the fact that it is moist and my fronts don`t have to pick it up and spit it out a few times to soften it before eating. Ken is a patient person to speak with on the phone and answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend his foods and I will be ordering from him again in the future.

I researched a LOT, and ended up with Ken. Some places have similar low prices on one or two items, but Ken has been consistantly competitive on everything. Great email feedback with the tracking number of my shipment, questions on one of the items, follow up, etc. Kens flake showed up with big size flakes, not powder (like others I've tried!) Filters, heaters, etc are all competitively priced, shipping is very fair. He's not the biggest store, but he's got the stuff I want, and some of the better brands out there. Try his pellets and flake food!

I recently placed an order for several filters and other items. One of the filters arrived damaged and Ken promptly sent me out another one to replace it. That one arrived damaged as well. Ken, again, replaced it for me with no hassle. Ken is the type of person I will do business with over and over. Customer service should be priority one and Ken honors that. I highly recommend him.

"What a Great Guy!"
Ken runs a fine business despite being a Red Sox fan. Just kidding, I don't like the Yankees either! Anyway, Ken had my order on my door step the very next day. It was a great transaction and wonderful experience. Thanks Ken. Let's Go Mets!

"Best in the business for quick delivery of quality products!!!"
I have a medium sized fish room and any time I'm looking to add on I go straight to Kensfish.com for extremely fast and friendly service. My order always includes some of his awesome 100% pure spirulina flakes to keep those vegetarian African cichlids from bloating! I also highly recommend his egg tumblers, I just saved 10 rare Victorian fry that wouldn't have made it otherwise.

"Good Product"
A friend and I recently purchased food from Ken and found the quality quite good. He ships to Canada which is a bonus. Order arrived quite promptly, however a few things were missing which we're still waiting for - could be Customs? We'll definitely order again once we've received the rest of our order. Nice packaging and labelling too. Thumbs up!

"Full line of products at almost unbeatable prices"
I am currently setting up a fishroom to house 50 fishtanks. I needed large quantities of everything, kensfish was able to deliver. It was great to find an online retailer with rock bottom prices who can deliver large quantities. Ken was very nice in a few email exchanges and was willing to work with me to bring down the shipping prices. Kensfish is definatily my fishroom supplier from know on.

"Great prices and service"
I would definitely do business with Ken again. I got a great deal on my titanium heater and he even threw in a good sized sample of food. I think anyone that goes through alot of food should check out Ken's fish.

"Good quality food at good prices"
I ordered some pellets & bloodworms for my new world cichlids... quite a deal for a pound of pellets and 1/8oz of bloodworms. His prices on Ebo Jager heaters are very competitive as well. Had a slight problem with getting the items shipped out, but he was right on the ball and got things straightened out immediately and took the time to make sure things got through. He even replied to emails late on a Friday night...great service! Even sent along a sample of some of the soft krill (I think that's what it was) for me to try with the fish.

"Great price for good food"
My first order came today and they all looked and smell very fresh. All the food are well packed in 1/2lb size or less. Fed it to my tropicals and they love it. I think I just found a permanent source for all my fish food.

"Great Price, Great Quality, Great Service!!!"
This was my first time ordering from kensfish and i have to say not only am i pleased, but i have found my new source for all my fish food in the future!!! The brine shrimp flakes i ordered where HUGE flakes sealed in an airtight bag. And all orders are sealed in 1/2 lb portions in air tight bags so that you can open it as you use it!!! And along w/ my order was a good size free sample of a different type of pellets!!! Any questions i had were answered very promtly and in detail. VERY fast shipping too. I definately would recomend kensfish.com.
