3rd time ordering and yet again the fish and customer service are outstanding. Gemma and Carl should be proud of their knowledge and customer service. The fish have settled in brilliantly and have already coloured up.
3rd purchase and every time the fish and service have been of the highest order. Gemma and Carl are great to deal with and should be proud of their operation.
Just want to say how pleased I am with the 11 Malawi cichlids I have received off you. They settled into the tank straight away and are completely unstressed. I congratulate you on the professional way you operate and would not hesitate to recommend.you to anybody buying Malawi cichlids.
Thanks Gemma! Fish arrived intact. All adjusted to new tank. All coloured up nicely within the first hour. Sign of healthy fish. Will highly recommend.

Fish have settled in nicely and have coloured up after only an hour or two in our tank. Can’t recommend these two enough and look forward to going back for more fish soon.
Very pleased with the quality and health of the fish when they arrived so glad to have found this site look forward to many more purchases from you

The fish sold here are so worth the money you pay, always service with a smile and very welcoming. Loads of choice on the fish and the food is priced reasonably! I refuse to buy cichlids elsewhere as I know what I buy from midlands malawis will have been looked after.

Thanks for the visit today the fish have settled in nicely, real quality fish I won’t be going anywhere else for fish only from you once again thank you.
John & Linda 21/1/18
I would like to thank you for the service today and the fish look stunning.
As a fairly experienced fishkeeper ( but new to Malawis ) I could not have gone to better people than Carl and Gemma to help stock my new 3 metre Mbuna tank . Their enthusiasm , advice and knowledge was excellent and my first batch of fish have settled in very well and 1 have already placed another order !
We often visit a range of aquatic outlets having kept fish for over 20 years. However, since converting our tank to hold Malawis, we have found that the general shops don’t hold a large enough range of fish and don’t fully understand their needs. On arrival at Midlands Malawis, Gemma and Carl were very easy to talk to and offered great advice. We came away with a few new tankmates to complement what we already have which is key. The new fish settled in easily and are top quality. Our tank now seems to be balanced and looks like the slice of an African lake that we wanted. We’ll be back at Midlands Malawis for sure!
Another 12 healthy Cichlids arrived on-time and added to the 24 I have previously purchased from Gemma & Carl. Why would I go anywhere else when these guys offer a fabulous service and cracking fish!
Have been using Carl and Gemma for years now. I use various different sources for my fish but imo Midland Malawis are the best. Always healthy, a great variety at superb prices and beautiful. Could not recommend highly enough.
Dean – 18/3/17
I’ve purchased 24 Cichlids that have been delivered by Courier. All delivered alive and well & their packaging is excellent. Communication was excellent on all occasions. Gemma & Carl certainly know their stuff , 10 out of 10 for service and condition of the Cichlids. I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them & how could I possibly go anywhere else now that I have found them!
Robin – March 2017
Having discovered Midland Malawis and purchased from them twice once via post and once in person, can not speak highly of them. Excellent service, top quality fish great prices along with Gemma and Carl being very helpful. Would never go back to local fish store having discovered Midland Malawis.
Aasif – March 2017
Got my Mbuna, 32 in total from Midlands Malawis through the post over a year ago. Every single fish has flourished. The quality is superb and I have had loads of fry. These really are quality fish. Do not hesitate to order from Gemma and Carl.
Paul E – March 2017
Thank you Gemma and Carl, quality service, quality fish as always, the standard of fish and your knowledge are second to none, and nothing is too much trouble … I deal with no other aquatic services now … a BIG thumbs up!

Just had 18 delivered thus morning after just ordering them 2 days ago. I love Malawi cichlids and had them for a long time the fish I got off of Carl are absolutely fantastic the colours are unbelievable they are truly incredible fish. They were securly packet separated into individual bags and now swimming happily with the rest of my malawis. Anyone wanting to buy cichlids shop here u will not be disappointed I\’ve never had fish delivered to me before and was slightly worried but soon as they came I could tell they had be packed professionally. The prices are pretty much unbeatable and the quality of the fish are second to none
