I had been to Rene's house several times being that he lives less than five minutes from my girl's sisters in P-Ville. I can say he is extremely professional and courteous. His garage setup is very innovative and his prices are excellent. I have decided that Rene will be my go to importer from now on. BTW he is importing some Lueba Tropheus for those who are interested. Don't see that at all anywhere right now.

I'm glad I finally looked into it. The pricing and requirements on several sites are just unreal. Kudos to Traci for making it happen.

I agree with you on making this knowledge public. Here you go...

I will drive to Humble to pick up the import from the Airport. Then I will bring it to my place and
quarantine the fish for 3days. If all is good, I plan on sending pics to individuals that ordered the
fish. Pickup arrangement can be made at that time.

Delivery of Fish:
a. I can ship South West Air Freight. You'll have to pay when you pick up the fish
b. You can pay me a visit at my house to pick up your order. I always welcome a visit.


Payment:
I prefer paypal since it actually protects the customer incase anything happens.
Hopefully it wont get to that point. I plan of resolving all payment/refund problems
immediately. I dont do credits, its not fair to anyone. Besides, thats one more stuff
I've to worry about. As a result, any issue related to money will be resolved immediately
Paypal payment will include additional 4% to cover paypal fees.

Ratio:
Guaranteed ratio is pair. But you can ask for whatever ratio you want and I will talk to the
exporter about it. If its not possible I will let you know as well as a way to get that ratio (workaround)


Preorder/Prepayment:
General Rules


All preoder must be half or more of the min. required quantity/boxes/pieces
50% deposit is required on all preorders that purchase half or more of the min. required quantity



Exception to the rule(s)
If you can't order half or more of the required minmum box(es), full payment is expected.
For example, if you want 4 special fish/order and the minimum order is 1 box (say 12 pieces).
Full payment is required for the 4 fish.

I hope I've answered your questions.

Nice! Is there a master list of fish you have?

Is there a certain region that you get most of the cichlids from or can we just ask you for any and see how it goes?
