  • Comment: what a difference! I had been dealing with another fish place and got ich covered cpd's with almost no tail or fins left. all 5 died during drip acclimation and setting up a quarantine tank, the place Said they were healthy when they packed them and asked for pictures of dead fish. I didn't want more fish from that place and to lie like that I just won't do business with them anymore. dans fish arrived happy and healthy and already colored up, I used to have to wait weeks for fish from the other place to acclimate. I love dans fish and they will have all my future business.great packaging and healthy fish. they are doing it right. UPDATE 1 WEEK LATER...I still can't believe the difference. I have been dealing with other online fish retailers and have always received juvenile fish, so young and unhealthy that I couldn't tell the difference between cpd's and dwarf emerald rasboras. always arrived with at least one dead and half eaten most diseased and malnourished. it would always take weeks for them to open their fins and color up(if they lived that long).dans fish arrived fully colored and zesty. I added 3 dwarf emerald rasboras to my existing 5 and my existing five always stayed hidden in the plants or behind the bubble wall, the new guys are much more active and not as shy, they come out to eat. I also added 4 cpd's to my existing 2 and all are out swimming about. one of the new ones, I know because he is smaller, has become the dominant male already. he is beautiful with dark coloring, bright spots and wide open fins and tail with deep orange and black and orange underside. I will never buy online from anyone else but dan. I am so happy I found them, I just wish I had sooner. I've wasted a lot of time and money on sick baby fish and shrimp and put my existing stock at risk introducing these sub par fish into my tanks. thank you dan you are doing it right, I wish I could tell all online fish buyers to stop messing around with other places and deal with you only.

  • Comment: I've gone to the closest Petco for these babes twice and both times they've faired not too well, but the four I've received from here are doing just well! The assassin snails also took really well, too!

  • Comment: I wanted to wait at least 72 hours after I received the order before I reviewed the fish I ordered from Dan's Fish. I've been in the hobby since 1988 (36 years) and this is the first time I ordered live fish in the mail. The two Female Blue Kribs I ordered are doing fine now. I took the order directly from the hands of the UPS delivery driver and immediately began the acclimation process. They took about a day to settle in and start eating. One female is more aggressive than the other one was so I had to split them up on the second day because she was constantly bullying the other one. I couldn't find any Super Red females locally for the two male Super Reds I have so I am going to pair the Blue Females with the Super Red males and see what kind of offspring I get from the mix. I would recommend your company to any other first time mail order customers and I will probably be a return customer in the future. Thanks again, J.T.

  • Comment: Received the order Saturday - all healthy and adjusted well to their new home. The red neon blue eyes were tiny but I swear they are growing as I watch them! Seriously - in just 4 days they are noticeably larger. The coral red pencilfish are absolutely stunning - well worth the price. I have wanted these for awhile but just had to wait for them to be available at the right time.

  • Comment: I ordered 5 panda garra and two rainbow fish. All of them arrived in good health. Unfortunately two of my panda garra disappeared on day three. There is absolutely no trace of them. Panda garra are known escape artist and even though I thought I had sealed the exits, they may have squeezed out a small exit in the cover where the air hose enters. If that happened my cats may have found them before I did. I don't think that's the seller's fault, just really really seal things up with new young panda garra. All the remaining fish have settled in well.

  • Comment: Quality control slipped on this order. Of the 4 Dwarf Chain Loaches, 3 arrived perfect, and the other one was nearly as thin as a sheet of paper. It arrived alive, but shouldn't have been shipped out. It hung on for a few days, but died within a week. Disappointing for a $15 fish, but in the stand-up fashion of Dan's Fish, who always take care of their customers, I received a full refund for the cost of that fish and its shipping. Three weeks after receipt, the surviving 3 fish are doing great and have been united with 3 Dwarf Chain Loaches from a prior order. They are a fun, goofy, little group of 6 fish.

Seller Reply: Hello Venturabananas, Thanks for the review. It sounds like we did indeed let a skinny fish slip through our quality control. My sincere apologies that we missed that issue before sending the fish. We will reach out today and make things right. - Dan

  • Comment: This will be an atypical review. Dan's Fish definitely earned a 5-star review, but some of the fish received did not. The Peacock Gudgeons and Ember Tetras in this order were and continue to be perfect. No deaths and happy, healthy, fun little fishes. In the same shipment, but listed as a different order, the Hovering Zebra Loaches and Dwarf Chain Loaches were and continue to be equally perfect. But the Green Neon Tetras in this order were not perfect. Of 20 ordered and received (apparently in perfect shape), within a week or two, 11 of 20 had died (8 within the first 2-3 days of receipt). I don't know why. They looked great upon receipt, and all the fish in this shipment went in the same, cycled, planted tank. Every other species is thriving. There has been 0 ammonia and 0 nitrate in this tank the whole time; and upon receipt, the shipping water had 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and 0 nitrate -- and temperature was great, 75-78 F. I don't blame Dan's for the deaths of the Green Neons in any way. And their service was, always, fantastic. I was refunded for the fish that died within the first few days plus the associated shipping costs, despite these fish arriving alive and looking good. The surviving 9 green neons have done great and appear to be thriving. They are absolutely gorgeous in a planted tank with dark substrate and background. Dan's Fish stands behind the fish they sell! I will continue to order fish from Dan's. I love what they are doing -- in every way. I am a fan, with no hesitations about ordering from them again. But I won't be buying Green Neon Tetras from them or anyone any time soon. Maybe this species is just too sensitive for me. And really, why bother? Cardinal Tetras was more beautiful and, apparently, less sensitive, at least based on my experience (with fantastic Cardinals from Dan's). Though the fact that Green Neon tetras stay smaller and thus are more practical for a small aquarium is a point in their favor.

  • Comment: Another great order from Dan's Fish! All my little hastatus corys arrived fat and sassy, and are still going strong almost a month later. They're making a great addition to the tank, which contains Tiger Teddies and Pygmy Swordtails that I also got from Dan. I can't wait to try breeding these little guys. Every other order has been a breeding success story.

  • Comment: Our fish arrived happy and healthy, each in their own small separate bag. The blue flame Apistogramma male colored up almost the moment I let him loose in the tank with iridescent blue body and a tail that truly does look like flames. The female immediately started exploring and her color is a sparkling gold. Both fish are unstressed and interested in their surroundings. We are delighted!

  • Comment: I ordered 10 juvenile chili rasboras. Delivered when expected and the fish were so well packaged. They didn't appear to be overly stressed and looked healthy despite the journey. They were drip acclimated over half a day and went in the tank that night. All 10 are happily swimming and already coloring up. They are just LOVELY and certainly my new favorite species! This was the first time I had ever ordered fish online and it couldn't have gone any smoother for this newbie. Thank you!

  • Comment: I received my order of Apisto macmasteri 'Gold Red Shoulder', Trio (1M2F) today. The fish were packed securely in a perfectly sized box for my order. The fish were acclimated for 20 minutes as recommended. Once placed in their new home they were very active. My male Endlers found them interesting and were following them around the tank so I turned off the light to let them get settled in peace. That problem had been resolved when I turned the light back on. The fish appear to be very healthy and I look forward to watching them grow. The is my 2nd order from Dan's Fish. Dan is two for two with shipping quality fish. Thank you!

  • Comment: 5-stars, I love buying from Dan's Fish, there's virtually no need to quarantine at all and the fish are usually very healthy. However... one of my 4 gobies I ordered just died, prompting me to leave this review. It is less than 2 weeks from arrival, and all four of the gobies seemed healthy at first, and I can see no signs of specific illness on this one except that it seemed very lethargic last night. Got home from work and it was belly up. This is the first time I've ever had a fish die that quickly after purchase, even from LFS. Perhaps some quirk of the goby, Idk. Regardless, I still recommend buying from these guys, they're a quality outfit and you can trust what you're getting... 98% of the time ;)

  • Comment: each fish was packaged in its own bag and arrived all alive and healthy. No deformities or signs of unhealthy on any fish. 1-2 of the small loaches were kinda thin, but I've never kept them so it might just be normal. However, they immediately started eating the little copepods in my tank the second they went in. They were super active and I can tell I won't have any future sudden deaths from them. Overall, everything came super active with no signs of sick of deformed fish as usual.

The box didn't mention live fish or handle with care, fragile or anything. Maybe get some live fish stickers to put on side. That way at least the mail carriers know it's fish to be gental with. I really love the fish so thank you soo much.

The CPDS are so cute and have joined my previous colony. All the fish are super healthy and eating very well. To all that think Dans is pricey, yeah and shipping is steep. Its still very worth it. They have quality fish...Thanks guys lifetime customer.

  • Comment: Can't say enough good things. I knew chilis were challenging to ship so I chose the best vendor, as per Cory at Aquarium co-op. Guys, every fish was individually packed!! It was genius, that way if one died in transit it wouldn't overly stress out the others. All twelve arrived alive, healthy, happy, and adorable! So happy with this purchase, well done folks over there at Dan's fish!

  • Comment: Dan has the best fish ! Well worth the extra money for healthy and fat and sassy fish. What brings me back is that he has a vet on board and is very careful to quarantine his fish if they don’t look good and not sell them until completely healthy . Excellent staff who always try to accommodate requests I make. Thank you everyone at Dan’s Fish!

  • Comment: I ordered six Corydoras Sterbai and they all arrived healthy and beautiful! They acclimated without issue and are now exploring their new tank together. They are so fun to watch! They were packaged with care and UPS delivered them quickly with text updates so I knew when to expect them.

  • Comment: Beautiful! Absolutely stunning! And the best customer service ive encountered in a while! Love the fact Dan sends an email ahead of time to inform you when the order will be shipped! Unfortunately ordering fish online is a bit of a gamble, and all fish are different, and for some the simple act of putting them in a bag despite having all the proper commodities can still cause a fish to die of stress, and unfortunately thats what happened, but Dan emailed me immediately to inform me that one of the females i had ordered had a premature birth in her bag and passed, he gave me a full refund for the one since she had passed while still in the facility, but the thing that really earns points for me was the fact he offered to send a couple fry in her stead even after the refund, of course he asked before sending them! This whole scenario shows that Dan's Fish care about the customer and the fish! Dan, you guys are amazing! Abso-freakin-lutely gonna be buying from Dan again! 5 stars! Id give more but it wont let me XD

  • Comment: I was finally able to snag some red tail eels along with some Sturisoma and red lizard whiptails. I added on a half banded eel(which is a Macrognathus maculatus instead of circumcinctus, but I'm still very happy with him) last minute. Super pleased with the whole experience, shipping was perfect, great quality animals, and great service. All of the fish started eating right away and colored right up! I even got males and females of all of them! Thank you so much, Dan's Fish!

  • Comment: Worth every extra penny. I've had some issues in the past with doa's and disease from places like aqua huna. It took me a while to get around the expensive prices of Dan's Fish, but now I see why. The blonde koi guppy pairs came in looking fantastic! Acclimation went very smoothly and the fish are happy and healthy! I will definitely be ordering from Dan's Fish again, very pleased.

Seller Reply: Hello johnboy, Thanks for the order and the feedback. I'm glad they arrived in good shape, but I'm sorry one is missing an eye. We should have caught that before it was sent. We'll process a refund for you for that fish and the shipping associated with it. Sorry for the mess up! -Dan

  • Comment: All the fish arrived alive. The 4 Blue Eyes immediately acclimated, but 3 of the 6 Hummingbird Tetras died within the 1st 24 hrs. They were very very tiny. Almost the size of fry. I think the shipping and transfer must have been too stressful..... P.S. 2 weeks after delivery all the Hummingbird Tetras died but the 4 Blue Eyes are doing great.

  • Comment: Ordered a Royal Acara and a Congo Spotted Puffer. Both fish arrived in great condition and have been doing well. The Royal Acara was a little shy at first but has warmed up to his tank. It is such beautiful fish. Regarding the Congo Spotted Puffer - I was nervous about getting a puffer since this is my first one but Dan's listing gave me a little more confidence knowing that they treat their puffers for parasites and make sure they're "plump" prior to selling. My puffer is very active, eating plenty bloodworms and hunting around the tank for snails.

  • Comment: Perfect! All these fish and shrimp arrived in perfect shape and are still thriving a week and a half later. Not a sign of any issues of any type. The Hovering Zebra loaches and Dwarf Chain loaches are so much fun to watch. My 7-year-old son especially loves them because they are so energetic and comical when in a feeding frenzy.
