Great experience, healthy and happy fish!

My Bristlenose Pleco delivery was delayed one day by UPS but arrived perfectly packed and in great shape. He's healthy and thriving in his new home. Tyler was quick to reply and assist with my shipping inquiry during the delay and I look forward to future orders!
