Just received my first order from Blue Zoo. Packaging was superb, instructions were clear and I really like the care pack they include (tubing for drip acclimation, Seachem Stress Guard and a sample of the food the fish were fed). Good quality livestock and great packaging.

9 fish were shipped (7 green chromis, 1 blue eye tang, 1 yellow tang) and all arrived in great shape. Coming from CA to FL, i wasn't sure what to expect. After acclimating and adding to the QT, they all are looking good.

I will update after several days have passed, but as of now I would definitely order from Blue Zoo again.

Day 2 update: All fish are lively and actively feeding. Great to see just 1 day after arrival . . .

Day 7 update: All 9 arrivals from Blue Zoo are healthy, active and feeding. QT time almost over and ready for the DT. Very happy with this order from Blue Zoo and planning to order from them again.

Day 14 update: All 9 arrivals are now in display tank and very active and healthy. The 7 chromis are schooling and feeding, the blue eye tang scrapes algae from rocks all day and the yellow tang grazes constantly. All have been eating flakes and pellets since QT. Both tangs readily mow down nori and kombu.

All in all, this order from Blue Zoo was a great experience-- healthy fish with staying power. The real question now is whether they can deliver the same experience with other livestock orders.

1+ Blue Zoo makes for a great experience. I've ordered several times and only disappointed once. Pretty good!

I had several orders with them and they all have been great. Only fish lost from them so far was leopard wrasses which is to be expected. I have four leopards from them now going on a week that seem healthy and eating, but that means nothing with leopards they could all be dead tomorrow.

My last order from them was a tuskfish, 2 triggers, a YT, 3 firefish, a pinkspotted goby, and they all seem great, didn't even have ich in qt at all. I still treat prophylactic anyway so they are halfway through copper now.

I got my first shipment from them Wednesday. Was very pleased with the products I received at the price I received them at. Ordered an XL multi color lobo, long tentacle plate coral and a large bubble coral. Plus it's super easy to meet the $140 for free shipping. I will definitely order from them again.

My livestock was also healthy. However I ordered a McCosker's flasher wrasse and received a yellowtail flasher instead....
