As always the fish were beautifully packaged and all 12 (10 I ordered and couple of extras) arrived healthy and active. They have been in their tank for about 10 days now and are coloring up nicely. They are not at all shy (surprising given how tiny they are) and hurry to the front of the tank to say 'hi' and show off whenever we enter the room. Big thank you to the Flip Aquatics team; I feel very confident ordering livestock from you and will be back for more!
Love the little chili rasboras, and I appreciate the folks at Flip Aquatics for working with me on a delivery issue.
Buy the one day shipping and be available to receive the package. Period. I purchased some and gambled with 2 day shipping in an upper midwest January winter and all were doa. It was heartbreaking. Flip aquatics quickly responded to my email and replaced the fish. I paid for 1 day replacement shipping which was more than fair. Both shipments were well packaged and the second shipment were alive. Some were very cold and lethargic, but all came through when they warmed up slowly to room temp. So if some are floating upside down and look dead in cold water, let them warm up first, they may come round.
They are all very lively now in quarantine and with great water quality and with frozen daphnia and micro pellets they are starting to color up nicely. Buy a group of them they like to follow each other around in little schools, but will forage for food alone at times.
It’s hard finding Chili Rasbora out there so I was excited to find Flip Aquatics had them in stock. I placed an order for 12. Sadly, all of the Chilis I ordered were DOA. Amanda helped me out and had a new order shipped out overnight and they all appear to be doing great in their new home, not a single DOA.
Great customer service and amazing color on these little guys! 10/10
