Quick delivery of live fish.

No DOA. All still in hood shape and completely remove the algae.

Perfect!

I received 6 adorable catfish. The bag was full of poop (a good thing for otos!) and clear water. They are still in quarantine but should be joining my guppies next month. My local USPS carrier does not deliver packages marked "live animals" so I needed to pick it up from the post office. Be aware if you live in a small town 😉 I will definitely be ordering fish from here again.

Should’ve added otos long time ago.

Wish I’d had these along time ago, they are active and fun to watch and they never stop cleaning!!!
