I love the honey gourami I got. The little guy is active and peaceful getting along with the green cories I ordered from Flip as well. I love the prompt delivery, professional packaging , and clear acclimation instructions. I love that Flip Acquatics quarantine the fish ensuring their health . I had a bad experience purchasing guppies from LFS two weeks ago and I am still treating them for internal parasites.
My fish are doing great when they arrived they had a little bit of finburn but recovering well
