     "Our fish arrived this morning. They're beautiful, and appear to have made the trip in outstanding shape. You folks did a great job packing them! The plants were lovely too! When we called to order we really appreciated the time and attention given to answering our questions and providing advice. You'll be our first choice for fish and supplies. Thanks again, and best wishes in the coming year!" (12-31-02)

     "I purchased 9 Fish back in August. I have always gone from shop to shop to find the best fish I could. I really had no idea that Armkes existed at that point. All that driving and many times without much luck. When I saw all the cool looking fish for sale on the site I thought it was too good to be true. I really thought that the picture would be best case scenario and that maybe a few of the fish would be nice. Well, I was wrong. The fish were all healthy and top notch on arrival. I have been looking for an Afra and Polit for some time without any luck. The Afra is by far the coolest looking fish I have ever owned. It looks just like the picture on the site. I had a Lwanda that for some reason got sick within the first 3 weeks. Without hesitation, Keegan gave me a credit and stated it was not typical. I consider that great business. At this point the tank looks great and I look forward to purchasing a Flavus and Mbana in the future." (12-23-02)

     "Hi, I got my fish on Friday. They are all great; except one of the taiwan reef died and I forgot to ask the delivery guy for a DOA slip. Anyway, it is okay. Out of 22 fish, only 1 died. I think I am happy. I know that I only order 2 male fish from you. But when they are in the tank for only 2 days, half of them turn out to be beautiful peacock males. We were all worried that there is a chance most of them becomes females. I love all mine mpimbwe. I was worried about one of them cause he is only 1 inch long... but he is doing fine with the others in my tank. And what a beautiful blue color that they are showing now." (12-22-02) Vancouver, B.C.

     "I received my fish a couple of days ago and they are great. They are beutiful, healthy and hearty. I have a friend that owns a fish store that wants to see your catalog since he has seen my fish. Hopefully, I'll be able to swing some business your way." (12-16-02)

Greg, e-mail sweetlu@smyrnacable.net
     "I want to send a 'thank you' for your assistance before, during, and after my order. I previously lived in Central Texas (Bryan/College Station) and had the opportunity to visit your showroom and purchase cichlids and synodontis, in person. So, I was well aware of the quality (and price) of fish you offer. After looking "high and low" around the metro Atlanta area, I could not find anyone with a selection (not to mention price, including shipping charges) that rivals yours. Still, I must admit it was with some hesitation that I placed my first order for 'mail order' fish. Well, I could not be more pleased with my experience. My fish (neo. brevis, juli. marlieri, neo. cylindricus, and cyp. leptosoma) arrived today, as promised. All look to be in excellent shape. One last comment. The two female brevis (Katabe "orange Head), seem to think they are part of the Cyprichromis colony, as they have spent the entire afternoon swimming with the "Tri-color" at or near the top of the water column. I will not hesitate to recommend you to all my cichlid enthusiasts friends." (9-17-02)

Hans, e-mail palapa00@yahoo.com

     "Picked up the Neolamprologus nigriventris last weekend. What an amazing fish. Can't wait till my next trip over next spring. The quality and care in how you handle your fish is unequaled in anything I've ever seen since starting in this hobby 20 years ago. Keep up the good work." (9-5-02)

     "I just recieved my latest shipment and alls I have to say is WOOO HOOOO !!!!! All fish arrived in top shape as usual and are settling into their new homes as I write this. All the fish were AWESOME!! I especially took a liking to the Eretmodus cynostictus. Also the Chalinochromis brichardi are gorgeous, definitely as you advertise "SHOW" quality. Thank You a great deal for making such Gorgeous fish available for purchase. I will be placing another order in the near future, as I have 3 tanks that are empty and think of NO better way than to fill them with Armke's Quality fish. Thanx again and Take Care" (8-30-02)

Jeff, e-mail jmignone@byramhealthcare.com
     "I have rarely ordered fish or other livestock via the mail as you never know what you are going to get. But again, I was extremely pleased with my order, and my fish ordered from you continue to be healthy, are looking better and better as they are growing quickly and coloring out nicely. Since I have several tanks, and know a few others who keep Africans, I have spread the word and I most likely will be placing another order before it gets too cold up here. Thanks again." (8-30-02)

Dave, e-mail David.Chien@faa.gov
     "The fish came in wonderful as usual. Also, thanks for the extra female! That was very generous of you to add the extra female free! There really isn't anyone else on this planet who would do something that nice. I don't know of any wholesalers that I deal with that would have given it to me for free! Hopefully, the only way that I can repay you is to breed the fish you sell to me and then turn around and offer them back to you as fry or sub-adults. Great doing business with you, as always."

It was a pleasant experience in dealing with your company, with fast professional service. The fish you shipped to me were all in excellent health, and beautiful representatives of their species. I am very pleased.... Thanks again for your great service, quality animals, and great prices. I will use your company again. " (8-23-02)

Stuart, e-mail sturob@onebox.com

They seem very well-acclimated for wild-caught specimens! The evening I got them, I noticed one of the Cyprichromis leptosoma "Kasanga blue glitter" females was holding... and two days later, the Neolamprologus brichardi "Namansi violet" had spawned as well. thanks for the beautiful, healthy fish!"

     "My first shipment arrived healthy and full of spunk! I have purchased from 2 other mail order companies but there is no comparison to the Armke quality and selection.

Colby, e-mail colbybay@hotmail.com

Even the female cyprichromis leptosoma "Black Bee" that was in not so good shape that you sent free of charge. Thanks once again for the very stunning cyp's and the pair of neo. multifasciatus, I was very impressed on the fast recovery rate of the fish. I'm so impressed on the quality of your fish I have already bought a 75 gallon tank just so I can buy more fish to stock it with!" (8-15-02)

But with all the help that I received over the phone and all my questions answered it made me a little less stressed. It was then time to receive my fish and let me tell you I was impressed with the way everything was packed and all the fish were beautiful and in good health. I just wanted to thank you for all your help and patience and for making my first mail order a pleasure. I would definitely do it again and I will recommend you to everyone. Thanks again." (7-5-02)

I really appreciate the fact that you try to inform the buyer as best you can before they purchase your fish... I also read your testimonials and have written to several just to get more info on you and I am happy to say EVERYONE I spoke to was very pleased. I am now certain that I will be ordering from you in the near future." (6-26-02)

Richard, e-mail eap@elisabethparker.com
     "I've gotten three shipments of Malawi cichlids from OHI in the last seven months. Not a single loss in the bunch, all ate like pigs hours after being in the tank, and the Show males in each shipment are as advertised. I can't get fishes like this in the Bay Area, no how, no way. The wild-caughts are particularly special. This is a responsibility as well as a pleasure. Thank you for your reliability and quality." (6-26-02)

Harvey, e-mail hethomas@arrow.com
     "Man, you outdid yourself again. My entire shipment was full of SHOW cichlids. The calvus are huge, and the lithobates is 100% show quality. I truly do appreciate you and Sonya taking time to prepare my order. I really do appreciate the excellent customer service." (6-21-02)

John, e-mail jabblm@netins.net
     "Thank you for those wonderful black ocellatus. They have got to be the cutest little fish I have ever seen, and fiesty, this one little guy - the smallest - just quivers all over and changes to all kinds of patterns when another one gets close to HIS shell. They have given me more than one chuckle. The Z-rock male is one of the prettiest fish I have seen. As always, thanks for sending quality, healthy fish." (6-21-02)

     "Just letting you know the fish arrived safely and somehow managed to catch an earlier flight out of Minneapolis - so we had them by noon. They all look great, despite the fact that two of the nigrita had popped their bags and so were not even in water when we opened the box. Given those sharp spines, I'm surprised we don't have more bag problems. Anyway - thanks for the great fish!" (5-29-02)

Not only was your staff very helpful and informative regarding the shipment, they were able to answer several question regarding the Neolamprologus similis. Your fish arrived in excellent condition and it was obvious that much effort was spent in preparing the fish for the journey unlike several other shipments I have received from other companies. You and your staff deserve a pat on the back for an excellent job and be sure, I will be sending all my business your way in the future." (5-23-02)

Some of the fish were quite a bit smaller than I expected though... but they all appear healthy, so I'm not complaining! It will be interesting to watch them grow!... I can't wait for the "Mloto Fluorescents" to start to color up!!!! ...I'll be coming back to you for your variety and quality!" (5-23-02)

I've special ordered through my local fish retailers in the past with very disappointing results.... I would definitely like to order more fish from you in the future." (5-15-02)

This magnificent rock is the showpiece of my 90 gallon cichlid aquarium (other than the fish!).

     "Thank you for the great fish. When the box came about 10AM yesterday, the DHL person said, Be careful carrying the box, it's wet . I thought Oh Boy... So I sprung open the carton, very well wrapped by the way, to find that one of the bags had sprung a leak. The one fish in the leaker was wet, had no water, and looked like it had been vacuum sealed in the plastic. A gonner for sure I thought. But I've had fish come back before, so I floated the bag anyway. The fish is fine, rather spunky and as active as any in the tank. In fact all of the fish have settled in and are doing fine. Hungry little buggers. Anyway, that one fish is in my mind a testament to your quality, careful packaging and shipping for survival. Whatever is in that blue juice you ship them did the trick. Thanks again. " (3-10-02)

Mike, e-mail cichlids@nycap.rr.com
     "Although it was a little hectic, all the fish made it to my fishroom fine and are adjusting to their new tanks as I type this. I called Albany Airport last night and was told the flight was running about 20 minutes late. That meant that I would have to wait until this morning as they close at 11:00 PM. I did not call ahead this morning (which I will definately do in the future) and just went to Albany Airport at around 7:30 AM. Turns out the flight was grounded in Baltimore and was not due to come in until 10:15 AM. Well it ended up being delayed a further hour and I was able to pick up the fish at around 11:30 AM. I should have called ahead. In any event the fish are fine and it allowed me to go swing my golf clubs at a driving range to pass the few hours." (3-9-02)

     "Hi...at 7:45am there was a Lone Star driver knocking at my door saying he had a shipment of fish and didn't have a way to heat the back of his truck and was concerned about them. I asked him to wait while I unpacked them and we found all were alive and well...and he was very interested in the 'heat packs' and packaging in side. Thanks so much for your efficiency in getting them to me overnight...when I touched the bags they were warm even tho it was 29 degrees and ice everywhere. This has been a wonderfully exciting experience and one I will certainly do again." (2-14-02)

     "OK, it is 1600 hours on Friday February the 8 and my decorus just arrived and they are all well and appear to have no ill affects from the shipping. Let me take this time to thank you for the service and the patience that you showed in this ordering process. I also would like to tell you that this is the first online order that I have ever placed and will not be the last one from your company. I look forward to doing business with you in the very near future." (2-8-02)

     "As usual, your shipment was impeccable. The fish were in unbelievable condition. The six heat packs you used really helped. The water temperature was 70 degrees when I got them home. They are a real nice size, and the ratios look really great too. I appreciated the fact that you dropped off the fish later in the afternoon so it would minimize the shipping time thereby reducing the time in the bags! Not many wholesaler do that kind of thing.... Thanks again!" (2-4-02)

     "Just a secondary note to thank you once again for our great looking fish... In fact all the new fish ate when I fed this morning! The Pseudo. sp. "Deep" Magunga Male is already preparing a nest site and trying to entice the larger female to spawn! Magnificent fish! All our African customers that came by today to see the new fish were well impressed. Thank you once again." (2-2-02)

I have just finished acclimating them to our tanks and all seem to be in very fine condition!... Once again you have astounded us with quality fish that will surely make our customers happy!"

     "I was skeptical about ordering online as I've never done it before but everything arrived safe and sound. The synodontis mulits are fantastic! The tretocephalus and demasoni are great as well. They made it here on time and seem to be settling in okay with my other tangs. Thanks again and I'll be sure to use you again in the future." (2-2-02)

     "Just wanted to let you know that I received the fish the other day with no problems. In fact, they acted better than fish that I get at the local pet store and this was after probably a 12-18 journey. Color was great and they took to their new surroundings very rapidly. I am VERY pleased with the quality of the fish and the way they were packaged/delivered. I will definately recommend you to anyone looking to purchase the types of fish you sell. Looking forward to doing business with you in the future!" (1-29-02)
