I'll second that advice for Apisto Dave. The list of transaction that occured is interesting to say the least
. Here's the lowdown on what I ordered and what came out of it...
Won an auction on aquabid for a pair of A. nijsenni and received an email confirmation with a list of other fish that he had available at the time. In addition to the A. nijsenni, I also picked up 4 A. maciliensis mamore, and a pair of A. borelli. After I paypal'ed him, I received the box of fish with the pair of A. nijsenni and a trio of borelli (he shipped me an extra male in addition to the pair that I had asked for), but the maciliensis mamore were missing. I also noticed that the nijsenni seems to be both males but decided to wait it out since they were relatively small still. I emailed him later that day and he apologized for having forgotten to ship the maciliensis mamore out, and that he would ship them out with the next batch. A week and a half afterwards, I received 6 maciliensis mamore (he shipped two extras out and didn't charge me for the shipping at all) and emailed him. By that time, I was definite that the nijsenni that I had gotten from him were indeed confirmed males and told him. He then offered to send me two extra fish and all that I had to pay was $25 for them (which is basically shipping charges). I received these two fish a week afterwards.
Even though it took around a month to finally acquire all the fish that I wanted, it was worth the wait. Dave is an awesome person to work with and I would do business with him if I happen to be on the market for more Apistos :roll: . Also, he has quite a few copies of Mergus' Cichlid Atlas left when I last contacted him, which is an awesome book if you're on the lookout for one.
BTW, sorry for the long post.
