Best Place to Buy Cichlids?

Post by Marshall.May on Tue 24 Apr 2012, 5:13 pm

Are there any good places to buy cichlids in East Texas? I live in Tyler, and can't find anywhere but Petsmart and Petland. There has to be some better fish stores somewhere around here without having to go to Dallas.

Check with Jeff at lonestar aquariums here in tyler on hwy110 he can order you pretty much anything and you can see it in person for health reasons before you buy but he has great prices on saltwater but not sure about fresh

I sold Jeff my female jack Dempsey today and saw a massive green terror as well.. So there are a couple really good looking ones in their store, but like what has been said, they can order whatever it is youre looking for as well
Good luck!

I have some I could sell. It depends what you are looking to set up, and how big your tank is, and what you are looking for.
I have some mature fish, with full attitude. Between about 5 & 6", I will not guarantee they are pedigree, so if you want them for breeding stock they are a no go.

What size tank and what filtration do you run? Tell us about your tank....and we love pictures.

I live in Shreveport - and Aquarium concepts does have some very nice peacocks in. The variety isn't huge - normally 7-10 varieties of peacocks/haps, but they are good size/quality. I DO intend to ask Scott, the owner, if his provider hormones though. I still don't understand how they can have a tank with 20 con-specific species males in a tank and they all be colored 100% - it doesn't make sense without hormones. Either way I think Scott would tell ya, he's a pretty straight shooter.

Don't be afraid to order! I've acquired almost 100% of mine online.

Davesrarefish.com - best provider for top quality Africans. Dave is either a ichthyologist / or marine biologist. The fish are perfect, but expensive... and the guy knows fish like no one else.

livefishdirect.com - Good source for haps, have a few Peacocks and SA/CA/Tangy/Vics. These are usually juvenile unsexed, but if you request so in the order, Josh will try to pick you out males. The guys remarkably good at venting I guess. Good fish, just young.

tangledupincichlids.com - Jeff is the Dave of SA/CA fish. Lots of hard to find new world cichlids - tons of wild and F1 to choose from.

Don't be afraid to order - out of all my orders I lost 1 ever, and Dave replaced it. It wasn't even his fault, UPS lost the package (fish).

If you already knew all this, I apologize Marshall! I haven't been around enough to know anyone yet. Good luck with your cichlids!
