Well we will see. Unfulfilled order.

Last week I purchased a Pair of ruby reds for my B-day as I lost mine to a hurricane last year. I"m a hobbyist breeder and have gotten these larva past starvation but not to settlement. I was looking forward to trying again since I now have the right copepods back in stock.


ANYWAY.... I paid a very handsome price for a mated pair $119. I put a note on the order that said IF YOU don't have the pair cancel the whole order. as I just ordered a pipefish for free shipping (and hopes that it pairs with my other pipefish and a few cheap clown gobies also for hopes of breeding but I can get this from the LFS). SO really just the rubies please.

I got a box with only one male ruby red in it. I have sent an email to customer service. The invoice has a check mark by the PAIR of rubies but I only got a female. THeir website still lists a pair as available too. Even if they send a female she's no longer necessarily the mate of the male I have. I could have just ordered their single collector's corner female and got a male from anywhere and saved $30 dollar.

I love that Bluezoo sexes them but they also charge for that. I'd like what I paid for. I'll keep this thread up to date with the result. I'm hopeful as I'd like to get more pairs and Bluezoo seems like the store

Oh let's add. The dragonface I ordered was shipped and it's a banded. Wouldn't mind except I'm collecting pairs of things for breeding. I don't have any other banded pipefish. and I'm trying to pair up my other dragonface.

Talked with Greg on Wednesday and explained the 2 errors in my shipment. He said they'd get the female and ship her to me hopefully by the end of this week. Haven't heard hide nor hair since. I've sent a follow email as well. They asked for a picture of the yellow banded pipefish sent that Wednesday. He is pretty but was skinny which is hard for a pipefish to be since they have a bony structure. But he is eating well (live copepods)
Here's the pretty boy. (or girl don't know)

I have talked with Greg and Isra both just as nice as can be. They are going to send me out a whole different pair to make sure it is a pair and a dragonface pipefish.

Wanted to stop back by. I had to be patient but Greg and Isra not only made my order right they sexed a some pipefish for me and a yasha. Getting fish companies to sex stuff is almost impossible. AS an amatuer breeder this was HUGE.

Thanks guys!!!!!
