Amazona

I just dished out the money and subscribed to three years of amazona. I've heard great things about this magazine and it better be good for 70 bucks and only 6 per year.

must....have.....more....moss n shrimp!!!!!!!!!!

I love amazona.. I try to pick up an issue from my club meets when they have them..

I've been toying with the idea of a subscription myself.. Maybe I'll ask for one for Christmas.

I had picked up a copy at a local fish club auction and was immediately hooked on the great articles and fantastic pictures!!

I also recently subscribed for 3 years and I bought all the back issues that I didn't have. There are at least a couple articles in every issue that are extremely interesting and I've found myself actually reading all the articles whether I'm interested in the topic or not.

I don't think you will be disappointed in your subscription.

Go to the Amazonas website, click on the Shop tab and it takes you to another website that is the seller of the back issues. I bought mine through them, paid online and received the magazines within 2 weeks.

You can get a price break if you buy multiple issues. Double check if some are in stock or not. The magazines were still wrapped in original condition.

I met the guy that started Amazonas. Or at least the head editor, Hans Evers. He is a really cool guy and fun. I also met a few of their regular writers and they are all top notch. I highly recommend it.

I'm guessing you didn't check the Amazonas magazine but the default Coral magazine. I suggest calling their toll free number to get it straightened out correctly. I had a problem with not getting a receipt or verification of my subscription and they fixed it right away.

I just checked my credit card statement and it says Coral Magazine also. I have not received my 1st subscription issue yet but did get the correct back ordered Amazonas issues.

Might just be because it's a parent company or something.

They got back to me and told me that I indeed ordered amazona but they handle all business under the coral magazine so that's why it shows up as coral
