I was looking for kribensis Pairs and I found this site that sells them but I’ve never ordered from this place before and I’m wondering if anyone has any experience with trin’s tropical fish?

Personally no, but I order of aquatic arts I’m not a 100% sure if they have the fish you need but they have great quality fish. Hope this helps.

Thanks, sadly they don’t have a proven Krib pair but if I wasn’t looking for Kribs I would order from them :)

Hello,
I have ordered from Trins!
I have order the following
3x Keyhole Cichilds
And this one plant.
In Ohio, they were supposed to ship it but it was too hot out and I asked if they could hold off, and in like 5 minutes they responded to me and moved it to another day!
10/10 Customer Service
The fish, none of them were sick but they did have cataracts that I don't find bad anymore. Still little Keyholes. :)
The plant I got only contained like 3 leaves but when I planted it in the span of 2 - 3 weeks it now has 20+ leaves and is the biggest plant in my aquarium.
9/10 Live Stock Quality
I really recommended them!

I wish their site for online ordering and to see pictures of what they have would be better. It is overwhelming at times going to the store when you don’t know what you are wanting. They have so many tanks.

They list sales often with pictures on AquaBid ...

I have ordered lots of plants from trinsfish and some hoplo catfish. I cannot remember if I have ordered other fish in the past..... I would order from them again if they had something I cannot source locally. My first choice is always a local breeder when possible.

Kribs are like cichlid convicts in my area. Lots of people have them because they are so easy to breed. Do you have a local club or facebook group that you can reach out to? These guys and convicts go for penny's at our local club auctions because they are so plentiful.
