  • Comment: This seller is great! I asked for water parameters and got a clear response within 24 hours. Ordered Monday shipped on Tuesday, they are fast! All 9 Apisto's were well packed, healthy and surprisingly full of color upon arrival. I can't say anything more than thanks to the seller and I would recommend you give JDAquatics a look and buy with confidence if you like what you see.
