The kids have arrived! They are in perfect shape, look great! They are already poking around,
looking for something to eat!
And wow, they are fabulous! I am absolutely delighted!! They are bigger than
I thought too, thanks!! They sure look fat and healthy :)
I will keep you posted on their progress, but I am positive
they will do wonderful here. Everything in the tank was perfect this morning for their arrival, 85f, pH 6.2 (I dropped
it down a bit more last night after your email about the shipping water pH), nitrites zero, ammonia zero, etc. I have
turned off the light so they will be less stressed, and also wrapped a planted background around the sides of the tank, to
make them feel secure.
Thanks again Tony, I am absolutely delighted with the fish! They are better than I hoped
for. You will be hearing from me again next time I see some fish of yours I must have, LOL!

I had to send you a thank you for the beautiful
white discus I recently purchased from you. They are eating so well and getting very big. They are very healthy and
by far some of the healthiest discus I have ever got.
Can't beat your fish food for quality either.

Dear Mr Discus,
I have a very happy Snowfire Discus that last night enjoyed the entire brood of eggs from
the spotted discus parents recently purchased from Sunrise Tropicals. I am producing nitrates at a very high rate now. I have
to change 55 gallons of water at least twice a week. Golden Sunrise Discus are looking good. The Ocean Black Discus
are very thick. The Blue Diamonds are healthy. The White Diamonds are very white and the Marlboro Reds are small.
The tank is horrible looking. It takes a lot of work to maintain such an ugly aquarium. I enjoy watching the fish
after dinner and seeing how much they will eat. I need a new supply of Red Mosquito larvae.

The 4 discus arrived in great shape and it did not take them long
to thier new tank. They are eating blood worms this morning and seem very
relaxed. Thank you for
all your help and putting my mind at ease about the
All the fish are in their new homes and are doing well. Cardinals are very active and looking
for food; cory cats are excellent size and are already working the bottom of the tanks. The discus are a bit skittish,
not unusual for them, I know, but are starting to explore the tank.
More later tonight! Thanks for another great shipment!

Just a note to let you know everything is great! Discus were looking for food when I turned
on the lights this morning. Thanks again for great fish! I really like watching the cardinals and discus.
I told Anita that one day I was going to get 300 cardinals to put in my 55 long so I could watch them school back and forth
across the tank

Everything is going well. I am wanting to get two more of the Blue
I also want to get two or three of the phoenix. I know it will be awhile
before the phoenix are
big enough to sell. Could you let me know when the
phoenix are big enough to be sold?
Or should I just check
back in maybe 3 to 4 weeks? Or longer? I definitely
want some of the phoenix and if you have any of the Blue Angels
at that time
I would like to get two more of those. I am guessing that it is not feasible
to hold two of the
Blue Angels until the phoenix are big enough. What would
the shipping be if I got two of the Blue Angels now?
(I didn't know I was
going to like them so much. The photographs did not do them justice.)

The discus arrived and they are healthy and beautiful. The phoenix
I was thinking they would be small. That is great. The color on them is
better than I thought
was possible. I am very glad I ordered them!
Thank you for everything.

Remember about 2 months ago I got the Checkerboard
discus from you? Now I have fry! They are wriggling but seem to be attached to an artificial log in the tank.
The parents are very dark in color. They appear to be caring for them, but there are 4 other discus in the tank plus
the 50 cardinal tetras I got from you, so I don't think they will survive? The other fish are well fed so they aren't
paying much attention to the discus fry, at least not yet!

I received the 26 discus I ordered , you did an excellent
job packing them, all were individually tripled baged, all are in excellent condition, all are eating very well ,all come
to the front of the tank every time I walk by. I will order more fish from Tony and I highly recommend his fish and service
Thank you very much, Jim from Illinois
Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know the fish I bought from you last year are doing excellent!!!
of them decided to pair off and lay eggs!!! They're a year and 2 months old right now... The Asian Star and the Super Red
are the 2, with the Asian star being the Mother. When I came home they were protecting their eggs very well from one
of the larger Angel Fish I have in there... they are already good parents :)
Thanks again for the excellent quality
fish, they're doing very well!

I am excited the fish arrived
late but are beautiful and healthy looking. Didn't receive them until 3PM. I must complement you on the packaging. You package
them better than anyone I've ordered from. All fish were individually wrapped with plenty of water and a styrofom box. Very
nice and professional. Thanks again and I hope to do more business with you in the future. Tony
The package was delivered aprox. 10am , The fish are in great shape, thanks , I will tell everyone I know that you are

HI Tony the discus arrived at 10: am they
are beautiful its now 3:00 PM my time and they are all ready taking food from my hand. The other discus that I got last week
are also doing very well [the snow fires are beautiful] I am very happy with all the discus that I purchase from you. I will
spread the news about your healthy discus to my friends. thank you John P.
Everyone is settling into their tanks -- cardinals colored up within an hour; leopard discus are
looking good; thin-striped snakeskin are still shy, hiding behind a piece of drift wood in the tank. They all look hungry
but am waiting until this evening to feed.
The guppies are looking pretty good, too! A few of them have huge tails, don't they?
I'll choose the best 1 or 2 and cross them with some of my best females. How old are these guys? The one snakeskin
or grass body sure looks nice...
I'll drop you a line after feeding tonight, but wanted you to know the first 5 hours have gone well,
and it looks like you made another great shipment to us..
Hope your New Year is off to a great start!

Dear Mr. Tony,
At the Lucky Lizard Lounge we have an aquarium next to the television
When commercials come on, we turn our heads and watch the fish swim.
We like fish that don't swim too fast and are easy
to catch. We don't
want them to eat the plants but we do want them to eat moss and algae. The
you sold us already eat too many expensive worms and shrimps and they
lay too many eggs on the side to the overflow.
They don't eat any algae
either. Can you sell us some blue ones that won't make trouble and will be
Someday, I want some red ones and also some with spots for a
Thank you very much.

Tony, the 3 Blue Diamond Discus arrived in great shape. The
water was warm considering the temp was down in the low 20's last night. They were acclimated in 1 and a half hours
and are swimming around and looking for something to eat. I'll feed them a light snack at lunch. What chemical
do you use in the water to turn it brown? Peat? After I added water to the bags the PH was 6.0 in one and 6.6
in the other and the water temp was fine. Thanks for the great looking fish. You may use the email. If you
ever have any different color discus let me know.

Tony, the 5 White Diamond arrived in great shape. They are
like little angels swimming around. I already have some of them eating from my fingers, not bad since I received them
today and fed them tonight. They were packed superbly. I acclimated them in about 1 and a half hours. I
will be placing more orders in the future and recommending you to
others. Thanks again!

just an update on the Discus I bought from you. They are doing great. The leopard snake ( I think thats what
it was called ) is really showing it's colors now. Starting to turn sort of yellow with red dots all over body. Looks great.
The 2 blue diamonds are getting big and are also great in there colors. The golden sunrise is awesome. Orange/yellow/red colors
look great. Just thought I would let you know I am very pleased with my purchase.

The Discus are GREAT! They arrived today safe and I put them into my tank. They seem to be doing fine with the
other 2 golden discus I have. Thank you so much for picking 2 great looking fish. I will be in touch for possibly some for

Tony, Thank you so much for the second pair of HUGE ocean greens. Most
people can't raise them that big, never mind sell them that size.. Both pairs arrived here in Massachusetts well packaged
in perfect condition.. A friend of mine flipped out when he saw the size of them and their width. If anyone wants testimony
to the high quality of your discus tell them to contact me. They can't go wrong.
