Good Silver Perch, all arrived in 2 days after postage on Monday. All healthy and growing at a steady pace. Our pond is relatively cold so they are still quite small (10cm>8cm) after 3 months. Hopefully they will grow quickly after a few months of cold. They are extremely hardy and our 9000l pond has required very little maintainance due to their hardiness. The fish were extremely healthy and most are gorwing at a uniform rate (almost).

Very happy:)
I ordered 2 lots of 25 (3-4cm) silver perch. From the post date to arrival was under 48 hours for one lot and under 24 hours for the other. For some reason the two boxes were separated from one another in transit in Melbourne and as a result one box spent the night. Both lots of perch were recieved all alive and active (with an additional one I think:) it's hard to count). After being introduced to their new aquaponics home they were up for a feed the next day. It's now 3+ weeks later and all are still active and eating well. I feed them a few times a day if I can otherwise it's twice. I'm feeding using the native food that i ordered with them and they seem to like eating the food that is sinking or at the bottom, maybe still shy? I keep the top of the tank covered most of the time, I'll look into if they'll prefer one that let's light through. Thanks Live Fish, great fish and service.

excellent - very satisfied
Received my 25 fish (actually 26), one was very small and it was the only casualty probably my fault. The rest were all of a good size, quite a mixture with some quite a bit larger than 3-4 cms.
I am a novice and this is all a learning process but it's been two weeks and all are now healthy even though I admit they have had a less than optimal transition and came into an uncycled tank.

Happy with my fish
Our Silver Perch arrived within a few days of posting, with only three casualties out of 50 fish. These were quickly credited to my account (within a day) after filling out the claims form. Very straight forward and easy form to fill out.
I have since ordered more fish from Livefish, and will continue to in the future.
Thank you.

Timely, and healthy
Good perch, not fast enough to dodge my Baramundi so I had to change their tank. Also not the strongest of the batch (like if caught in the wild) so some died after a day or so but, still only to be expected, 96% survived the postage and 90% survived the 2 day cooling period. (unfortunately only 40% survived my bara)

Perfect Perch
25 Silver Perch, all alive and well after travelling down to Melbourne. Straight into the aquaponics setup (after acclimatising) and feeding almost straight away. Cant' wait to see them get bigger.

Replacing 20 trout which boiled in the 6 days of 40+ heat :( bummer.... fingers crossed these little silvers make it to plate size.

Thanks LiveFish!

Placed in tank and the fish were not stressed at all since they fed straight away.

Excellent product, excellent service!
Very good price compared to the competition! Staff very helpful; excellent product and fast shipment with good on-line tracking. All twenty-five fish (some much arger than advertised!) made it in excellent condition and when released, started chasing mosquito wrigglers! I am planning to invite them to dinner when they get to a decent size - the fish, not the wrigglers!!

Silvers and Sleepies
The 40mm Silvers (25#)received in Oct are now 150-200mm and growing every day with tank temp at 28C. All in excellent condition. Almost jump out of the tank when feeding!!!
Sleepies (20#) are eating same 2mm pellets as Silvers (and Gold fish) and greet you at the surface when they see you coming! Their 70L tank is 27C.
Give the Sleepies some Blood worms each 2 weeks for a treat.
Silvers will be ready for Easter 2011, hopefully Jades (just ordered) will be ready before the dead of winter, but I will be heating jade tank with Compost coil heater for a while.
Thanks again for your excellent service and healthy Fish. I will always recommend you to Brother (and Sister!!) Aquaponisists.

Cheers Ian K
