Hello Mr. Sipe
I just wanted to drop you a line let you know how amazing your Pennyfish are.
I had a production goal of 1,200 fish for a small backyard system.
Your Breeder colony performed swimmingly delivering well over 1,200 fingerling in just under 90 days.
I have some Pennyfish from the first batch weighing in at over 120 Grams each!
I plan on expanding big time in the spring and will be ordering many, many more breeders.
Thanks again for sharing all your great experience and knowledge and most of all your superior Fish!

I have had three orders filled by Mike and Jan Sipe during 2011. Once I drove to their home in Florida and twice I have received fish by mail. In each case, I sent payment ahead by Western Union. In the two cases requiring shipping, I simply emailed them my Fedex number.
In all three cases I received my fish in good health, as they were promised. I believe Mike & Jan ship fish once or twice per week. In one instance when I requested expedited help, the fish were shipped the next business day at no additional charge.
Shipping and receiving live animals is understandably frightening. Care must be taken to acclimate fish to the temperature and pH of a new environment. However, I see no reason why a consumer exercising reasonable caution would not have complete success with Mike’s fish. Although Mike and Jan assure replacement of fish that are lost during shipment, I have never had occasion to need the guarantee.
Feel free to call me if you have any questions.
