The Best To Work With!

The fish are gorgeous! Amazing coloration, and appear to be super healthy...I've ordered from a dozen retailers, and you have by far been the best to work with.

Fish were packaged in a huge box; they traveled in luxury!

My shipping was only $8 from MiniWaters.FISH today and fish were packaged in a huge box. They traveled in luxury! Large box, double bagged and then one more bag overall for good measure. Plenty of water and air and some bonus reading material for me, a couple of recent editions of Coral Magazine. Very happy customer!

Came highly recommended and didn’t disappoint!

The little guy made it safe and sound to us this morning. You were not kidding about the packing! Great job! Have him drip acclimating right now. Thanks again for the fantastic service!

The communication between buyer and seller was bar-none.

Miniwaters is an amazing company. I bought 2 fancy clowns aka "davinci" clowns, and the communication between buyer and seller was bar-none.

The fish themselves are amazing, and delivered promptly.

Best option in the Midwest by far.

Fish arrived less stressed than some I have bought in local shops!

I was impressed by the way these fish were packed. The fish were triple bagged, and they were nestled in nicely among the air pillows, both reducing shock from the package being bounced around in transit, and buffering against temperature problems. The fish were about as un-stressed as one could imagine, given a 24-hour trip. Honestly, they seemed less stressed than some fish that I have bought in local shops and brought back to the lab directly.

Clearly Healthy

The fish are clearly healthy, have good appetites, and are busy exploring their new home. There were no DOA's. Thank you very much for a job well done!
