Does anyone have any experience with Aqua Imports? I've been looking to get some exotic fish and they have such a huge variety. Any info would be appreciated
I've recently ordered online. Not the best scenario tbh. I ordered 8 celestial pearl danios from aquahuna, and I got 8 juvenile chili rasboras. I called aquahuna, and they asked me to email them a picture. If I don't get a response to the email by the end of the day (max of 48 hours reply for email) I'm going to call them again. They said that they would give me 8 CPD's for free if they were able to determine that they didn't give me CPD's from the picture, so if they respond, I'm fine with it. Just thought it was an interesting story. Usually aquahuna is a great online retailer.Hmmm, I've seen people on this forum say that they have had great experiences as well as one that said that their fish came with hole in the head. But that was a few good reviews to one not-so-good one. I found a couple of fish I really want to get (I live in California so it would have to be shipped). I'm on edge, if anyone has ever ordered from them online I would love to hear some reviews, thank you!
Which store are you talking about (is it the aqua imports in-store in boulder?Last I noticed he had 3-4 of them.
Sadly I checked and they don't have the exact species I'm looking for but thank you for telling me about the website More choices for fish if I ever want more variety to choose from in the future.wetspot has several species of knife fish for sale and they ship and are reputable but shipping is a bit expensive for one fish
Nope, though that is a cool store and they are doing the lords work taking in all those monster fish that people can no longer house. They still have housing issues and at time I wonder if they could move some of the fish like rays that cover the bottom and part of both sides of their tanks so they can never be flat, to a place like Ohio fish rescue. It has been a long time since I was there so I don't remember if those poor rays were in 220s or 125s. I wish that place was closer instead of ~1hr each way.CHJ Forest Lake Pets?
I wish we had a local store that was an apisto addict. There are some really nice and interesting apisto out there but the only thing our local store ever carries are cockatoo from a local breeder. Not sure what people see in cockatoo; one of the most boring uninteresting fish i've ever owned. Highly not recommended.Yeah.
The thing is his "guy" in SA will send him fish when he orders them. The guy will not always ship him what he orders. There is no arguing with your guy or you don't have a guy there anymore. So you pay and see what you get. This means he may not have ordered them as he doesn't really do non-dwarf cichlids. Right now he has more cichlids than I have ever seen in his store due to this. Now when it comes to dwarf cichlids, he is an apisto addict and a ram fiend.
His guy in Africa once sent in some Malawians. One of them was a brilliant purple with yellow seams. never seen one like it. I didn't have a tank I could put it in. It was of course a terror, chasing everything in its tank and shredding all the plants. Many fatalities before the fish was gone. Beautiful fish I wish I could have housed.
