The Packaging I Think Saved These Fish From Peril
Ordered 4 discus and 4 rams. delivery service delayed delivery by an additional 2 days. The packaging I think saved these fish from peril. They arrived stressed, but healthy. Mark followed up with me along the way hoping for a good outcome. Great people to work with and the quality of fish may have saved them from arriving DOA because of the delays. I would purchase again without hesitation.

Mark's Packaging is A+
Just received some Blue Cobalt Discus and all are swimming and eating well. Mark's packaging is A+ and fish were in no way stresses. After 6 hours in there new tank they were fed frozen beef heart which I also purchase from Mark. I have purchased 30-40 discus from Mark in the past year and all are doing well.

Customer Service Was Fantastic!
I couldn't be happier with my buying experience! Customer service was fantastic, and emails were replied to promptly. All of my fish (Rams) showed up on time and in great health. They took food right away and didn't seemed stressed from shipping. They started pairing off quickly as well. INCREDIBLY convenient they send sexed pairs. I would 100% recommend. I just wish I lived closer so I could get some of their frozen beefheart mixture, which looks awesome.
Thanks guys! Greatly appreciated!

This Has Been the Best Buying Experience to Date!
All fish are alive and healthy! Thank you very much for the fish and the excellent communication throughout. I’ve bought fish online several times, and also bought from breeders via Facebook; this has been the best buying experience to date! I love rams and am hoping to begin breeding them myself. Your page is very informative and I will reference it often. Thank you again!

You guys are the BEST!
Just a quick note to let you know that all 6 of our electric blue ram friends arrived today form their trip in great condition and are acclimating nicely to their new home. I would like to say thank you again for the exemplary service that you provide. I was so impressed the first time that I came back for the additional livestock. You guys are the BEST.

The Customer Service was Great!
I ordered from Mark & Matt for the first time earlier this year. The customer service was great and the fish all arrived healthy. The discus I received are growing well and are voracious eaters of anything and everything I offer them. I was so happy with my first experience that I just ordered a couple more discus.

I'm hoping to make it down to see their facility at some point and will definitely be buying from them again in the future.

They Are Hands-Down the Best!
I have been ordering from and Matt and Mark for years now, and will continue to be a repeat customer. They are hands-down the best. My grown fish are gorgeous.

Have only had a single issue in several orders where a box was dropped by FedEx and two fish were lost. They made it right immediately without any cost to me.

Cannot recommend enough!

The Customer Service Was Great
Was a pleasant experience buying discus online from I ordered from them on two different occasions and my discus look healthy after acclimating them to my tank setup. They roam around freely in the tank area and readily accept wide varieties of foods. The customer service was great and I could easily get response from the breeder regarding the shipping info and status. Would look forward to see the baby discus grow and order new varieties when available. Thank you.

The Whole Experience Has Been More Than I Could Have Dreamed Of!
My fish arrived yesterday and all were in good shape. Upon arriving home, the fish were transferred to a different container and placed into the tank to acclimate them to the temperature of their new surroundings. After about an hour of small water changes in the container, the fish were released into the tank. After only a few minutes they were swimming around like they owned the place. They also started to color up after about an hour or so. This morning I checked in on them and they are all doing very well and have colored up even more. This is the first time I have ordered livestock online and I must say that the whole experience has been more than I could have dreamed of. Your attention to detail, excellent communication and quality fish (Dwarf German “electric blue” Ram) is top notch. Thank you for making the fish and I “happy campers”.

The Packaging Was Amazing
First time ordering fish online and the packaging was amazing, all fish delivered safe and healthy and were energetic and eating right away. I was very impressed by the communication, and the care and concern this company has for the fish as they go to new homes!! It is hard to find quality GB’s and I am so glad I ordered my fish from here. They are healthy, hardy, happy little fish and I will definitely recommend this company to others! Love that they breed in local water, and no hormones. Makes for healthier fish. Love them! Thanks!!

They Were Packed Extremely Well
I can't say enough good things about this group! The fish arrived exactly as ordered. They were packed extremely well. It has been crazy cold here, but the fish were fine. They were healthy and perky right away. It is about 10 days now since I got my German Blue Rams and they are growing and feisty. I definitely will pass the word along. And...maybe get a few discus? Who knows!

My Fish Arrived in Excellent Condition.
I have been buying discus over the net for about 10 years. The shipping and handling cost per discus usually adds about $10 to the price of each. Matt and Mark do an excellent packaging with special bags. This really holds down the shipping cost. My fish arrived in excellent condition. I was so impressed buy the coloration in the young discus they sent that I immediately ordered 5 lbs of their beef heart. I can't wait to order more discus from them.

So Happy I Found SomeFin'sFishy!
Before I placed an order I emailed some questions and was shocked when Mark got back with me the same day. Then I called them and left a message and Matt called me back within an hour. Now, that's what I call EXCELLENT customer service and communication. I ordered 16 discus and they all arrived alive and healthy. I also like that Mark and Matt are willing to give you tips about the fish. If you want healthy discus at a great price buy from Mark and Matt. I couldn't be happier.

I Would Buy From These Guys Again Any Day!
I have been looking at GBR's for a little bit. I came across these guys (from a Facebook group). I ordered 4, and emailed them asking if they could ship on Saturday (I have Mon and Tue off work, and wanted them then) They emailed me back saying they would. All emails were replied to in a timely manner. I received the fish on Monday, they sent me an extra one (5 total). They were all alive and healthy, I have had them a little over a week now and they are doing great. I would buy from these guys again any day. Thank you for providing excellent fish and service.

I Truly Could Not Be Happier!
I ordered 4 German Blue Rams and I truly could not be happier. The communication from these guys is insane, they truly care about their fish and want them to be happy instead of trying to make a quick buck. They send information with every order to make sure that the customer is happy and is prepared for the fish they will receive. And most importantly the fish are stunning they all look healthy and fine and are looking wonderful in my tank. Would not buy German Blue Rams from anyone other than these guys highly recommend.

What an Excellent Experience!
What an Excellent Experience. This was my first On-Line fish purchase and I couldn't be Happier! I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive doing this for the first time and when my fish didn't arrive till after 6 pm, I was worried that these HOT 100 degree days in the Mail would do them in. However, All fish arrived Happy, Well Packed and in Great Condition! A day later and they are doing well in there New Home! Best part of the experience was the Communication. The team emailed prior to shipment, after shipment and followed up to make sure they all made it safely. Thanks for an Awesome Transaction. I will definitely buy Again!

Fast Delivery and Remarkable Packaging
I was skeptical about the bags they use at first was very hesitant about my purchase. I bit the bullet and made a purchase. These guys kept me informed by email from the purchase all the way to the delivery. My fish came and were swimming around gracefully in their little temporary homes. If i didn't see it with my own eyes I wouldn't believe it. Sealed bags with no way for air to get in. I was told these fish can live for up to a week in these bags. I kinda believe it but wouldn't want to see it done. My fish are now in their permanent tank and doing just fine. It's day three and they are eating like little hogs. Cant wait to see them start growing. Mark and Matt, you guys rock, I will be purchasing again in the future. I keep my fingers crossed that you expand your inventory of discus. Keep up the great work.

One of the best experiences I've had purchasing discus on the internet. Ordered 14 fish, all arrived healthy and were begging for food within 24hrs. They've got their packing technique down to an art. Every aspect of the transaction was clearly communicated through delivery and follow-up. I would happily order from these guys again. Thanks!

This Was as Near Perfect Experience as I Have Ever Had With an Online Purchase.
Have you ever ordered something on the internet and thought, "I wonder if they got my order?" That is something that did not happen with SomeFinsFishy. I felt like I made a friend from when the order was placed to when it arrived. Mark was very helpful with questions, change of shipping address and even made suggestions to make their new home perfect. I guarantee you will may never have a sales experience quite like the one Mark provided. I have already sent pictures to them of the fish in their new home and I couldn't be happier. This was as near perfect experience as I have ever had with an online purchase.

I Couldn't Ask for Better Juvenile Discus.
My experience with Mark and Matt was great. I could tell that they take great care of their fishes, as well as offer great customer service. They go above and beyond to make sure the fishes arrive safe and sound. I ordered 4 juvenile discus. First they were shy (which was expected), but now they're starting to be active and show coloration. I couldn't ask for better juvenile discus.

I Have Rarely Had This Great of Customer Service.
While I am newer to ordering fish online one thing is for sure, Matt and Mark are running an amazing company. I have rarely had this great of customer service from any store, not limited to fish. As far as their fish and prices, you won't find better. If you have the patience to grow your discus out you will be well rewarded. Buying from Somefin's Fishy will cost you about a fourth the price of other companies. Plus they added an extra discus to my order of 5, that's an (soon to be) extra value of $50-60!! If you are considering looking for discus online (as an amateur or expert) look no further. While I didn't have any DOA's, Somefin's Fishy not only offers money back but also shipping refunded. Something no other company does.

P.S Do not get this company confused with "Something's Phishy out of Florida

You Can Tell They Care About Their Fish and Customers
Amazing service the whole time. I was waiting for some rams to grow out. You can tell they care about their fish and customers as well as explaining everything you need to know. Definitely going to buy from them again in the future!

Excellent Communication from Time of Sale to Delivery
Received my blue rams last week. They were incredibly well packaged with styrofoam insulation and a small "heater" that was still warm after 2 days in transit. Excellent communication from time of sale to delivery. All fish appear well adjusted to their new home, eating well and exploring. Will definitely recommend Matt and Mark with no reservations.

The best in the Business!
If you live nearby, they are definitely worth a visit. I planned on just picking up a few fish for my tank, but stayed for about an hour grilling Mark with questions that he was happy to answer. Not only are the fish exceptional, but don't overlook the beef heart mixture they sell. I bought some Blue rams for myself and a friend. Not only are mine bigger but the colors on mine pop like saltwater fish. The only difference between my tank and his is this food. It’s worth having shipped fed ex if Mark isn’t close by. Can’t wait to get a few more discus for my tank!

These Guys Are Doing It Right!
Came to visit mark and his fish room to pick up some Rams. What an operation! These guys are doing it right. All tanks were crystal clean, Discus breeders were huge and fry in all the tanks look great. Purchased 6 Rams from Mark and he threw one in for free. All Rams are doing great! Had 2 separate pairs by the end of the week already starting breeding displays. I will be back to visit in awhile to pick out some Discus

Can't say enough
Can't say enough; Contacted the guys a couple of times about shipping some fish to south carolina and in the end decided to drive up to Chicago, see the grand kids and buy some fish while there,,,or so the wife was told,,,when seeing the guy's tank room and gorgeous fish I told Mark to give me 10 discus, two each of whatever was ready to go, Mark was nice enough to throw in 2 extras..750 miles, new tank, these fish never sulked, feeding like crazy with no signs of any stress at all. You can tell Mark and Matt care about these fish above an beyond just breeding and selling..Absolutely can not go wrong with the beautiful, healthy fish.

I am Amazed by the Excellent Customer Service
I am amazed by the excellent customer service Mark provided and even more amazed by how well packaged my orders arrived. Ordered 2 discus juvies and 3 lbs of beefheart. The juvies are beautiful and healthy even at nickel size. The beefheart mix is top quality stuff, we'll prepared and packaged. My fish absolutely went crazy for it. I will definitely order beefheart mix exclusively from in the future.
Thanks again,

Professional Hobbyists is an Under Statement
Do not hesitate to buy from these guys! Professional hobbyists is an under statement. Ordered 2 blue rams, which were delayed during shipping for 6 days. Due to their incredible stock and superior packaging, the fish arrived alive and are thriving. These guys are pros and I will be ordering more fish from them after new years.

They were all just as well packed and shipped with the same professionalism and care!
Lucky for me I was searching the web one day for rams and came across and placed my first online order of fish. When they arrived I was very pleased with how colorful they were right out of the box. I have since placed two more orders more rams and most recently my first electric blue Acaras and they were all just as well packed and shipped with the same professionalism and care. I knew every step in the shipping process thanks to the detailed emails I received up until the time they were on my porch. I will definitely continue recommend to anyone looking for cichlids. I look forward to my next order (discus maybe).

Very Impressed With Their Facility, Knowledge and Willingness to Spend One on One Time Speaking With Us
I contacted Mark and Matt after seeing this site. To my surprise they answered the phone immediately and invited us to visit their hatchery. We were impressed with their openness of the invitation so we made the trek to Chicago. Mark and Matt spent approximately two hours showing us their facility and talking with us. Being very impressed with their facility, knowledge and willingness to spend one on one time speaking with us, we purchased well over 100 fish in discus and rams. We were able to see the fish from laying eggs to wrigglers, to fry and juveniles as well as the breeders. We took our fish home and 4 days in we have not had one loss. Thank you guys for the visit, quality fish and the time you spent with us. We will return for more fish and the good service. Thanks Guys, keep up the good work!

I will definitely be a return customer!!
I had an opportunity to visit your home base, and was truly impressed! Your set ups, and systems are top notch. After talking with you, it's obvious I'm talking with true fish lovers and it shows in the care I witnessed while there. I purchased 3 Blue Diamond Rams while there. All 3 are doing great and assimilated to their new home with no issues at all. Healthy bold and ready to eat in only a short time the same day.They are great additions to my tank. Thank you so much for you interest in my questions and information you provided! I will definitely be a return customer!!

The Communication was Fantastic
This was our first internet fish order and Matt and Mark made it a very pleasant one. The communication was fantastic and the fish arrived in great shape. The fish are just beautiful and much nicer then any long fin Rams we had traveled to see in the Northwest. Thanks so much Cheryl and I will order from you again soon.

Shipping Was Great, Everything Came Packaged Great and Neat
I ordered 5 checkerboards and 5 yellow-red melons. I put in a inquiry on the melons as they weren't ready yet. As soon as they became ready I received a text message letting me know they were ready. I was able to have them held for me for 7 days. Shipping was great, everything came packaged great and neat. The heat pack was cold but it was nice out so no big deal. I did the drop and plop method for my order and they have adjusted fine. They are already eating during the first day. Overall a very great experience. I can tell these people care about their fish from the customer service to the way they package.

Much Better Quality Than What I Can Get at Local Pet Stores
First time I've ordered from Somefins Fishy, but have ordered fish online before with other places with mixed results, but Somefins Fishy goes above and beyond with the care and effort they put into their fish and their packaging. I ordered 6 Rams ,and they arrived in great shape! Even a bonus Ram was thrown in for good measure! Thank you!!! I took my time to acclimate them and within an hour of them being added to the tank they looked right at home and are doing wonderful. I highly recommend Somefin Fishy and their German Rams. Much better quality than what I can get at local pet stores. Will definitely be ordering again! Awesome job Somefin Fishy!!!

Beautiful & Vibrant
I've bought electric blue Rams, German Rams and Discus from Mark and Matt. The fish were always healthy , beautiful and vibrant ! The fish are not given color enhancing products like the fish at pet stores that get dull after a few days Matt and Mark have been extremely helpful with any questions I had. I appreciate the information they've given me and will continue to give my business to them as well as recommend them to anyone looking for fish.

Healthy Fish - Great Packing
Healthy fish, uncomplicated shipping and excellent customer service are what I have experienced when ordering from Mark & Matt. Simply put, I trust these guys. I’m a repeat customer and will be ordering again soon. I’ve even experienced the dreaded “lost in transit” message on one of the orders which delayed delivery by a couple of days. Their packing is so good that when the box did finally arrive, all of the discus were alive. They were a little hungry, but otherwise doing well.

Patient and Responsive
These guys are awesome! I'm lucky to live close enough to them to stop by and purchase fish. They are always very responsive and patient. I usually have a difficult time keeping Rams alive from the pet shop, but I have had nothing but success with their Rams. They take great care of their fish, and I highly recommend shopping with them. Great people, great fish!

German Blue Rams
I order a LOT of fish online from a lot of different sources, and these guys are seriously the best. They are so good about answering questions and communicating in general, the fish are expertly packed, and they arrive after two days in the postal system in better shape than fish I have shipped overnight from larger wholesalers. If these guys carried a larger variety of fish, I'd never work with a different seller again. I'll never buy rams from any other source for sure!
