Anytime you purchase fish online you will want to look for reviews of the retailers and contact the retailer directly. Find out what they will send you and what they guarantee in regards to shipping (replacement, credit, etc). It really depends on what you are buying. Unsexed fry/juveniles could arrive in any sex ratio from all males to all females. If you are buying adult fish then retailers will typically sell them as pairs, trios, or males only. Unfortunately, we do not have many resources for our Europeans users, so I would check with more Eurocentric sites.

Reviews or recommendations for retailers is not permitted in the forums, so please let's keep those types of responses to PMs only.

your best bet is to look on aquarist classifieds (google it), this brings up a uk only classifieds ad site and forum with a lot of cichlid discussions.
hope that helps

(edit)
Please leave recommendations to PMs.

There are a couple of good cichlid forums that are UK based (I still prefer this place though.)
In their "For Sale" sections there are loads of regular posters selling their fish and are prepared to post. ALOT cheaper than buying from shops via post as well.
