  Tangled Up in Cichlids

Jeff Rapps facility consists of well over 10,000 gallons devoted to mostly New World cichlids. Many of you have asked me about visiting the facility. The hatchery is built on my private property so I'm sorry I cannot entertain walk-in business. All orders are either shipped next day air to your door via FedEx (the most common choice for hobbyists), or shipped air cargo to your nearest airport via Newark International Airport (EWR) (the most common/cost effective choice for retail outlets and distributors whose orders consist of multiple boxes). Please read complete shipping details at the 'Order Info' page listed on the menu bar. Email: in the New World Cichlids from South and Central America.

Many of you know me by Cichluvr on various aquarium sites. For 25 years, I have been raising and breeding cichlids. My hobby became so big that I finally decided to offer cichlids to other hobbyists. Currently, I have over 60 different south and central american cichlids in a mega facility in south Florida. The fish that I offer are bred and raised in my own building. I am not a reseller of anybody else's fish, even though once in a while I will import fish from the wild. Additionally, I do not pond breed fish. I tank breed my fish, and on more sophisticated species I breed in large breeding containers in excess of 1000 gallons. This is the only way I can ensure the fish that I sell are problem free.

Our goal

As you know, many of our beloved species are being endangered in the wild. Simply said, I want to provide a great fish at a REASONABLE price. This is the only way to treat our customers, and to add more people into the hobby. You won't see me charging hundreds of dollars for a fish or for shipping, and you will leave satisfied!

One of Florida's leading tropical fish farms since 1970, Imperial Tropicals is operated by Mike Drawdy in Lakeland. We specialize in breeding high quality tropical fish including a variety of community fish, American and African Cichlids, invertebrates and more. Our 20 acre farm is host to millions of inhabitants, distributed throughout over a hundred ponds and hundreds of breeding vats which are housed in several large greenhouses.
Here at Imperial, our passion for the hobby is evident. While we continue to breed high quality livebearers (which used to be our focus) - our attention has recently shifted to breeding more hard to find and hard to breed fish. We often import wild fish from overseas in hopes of creating domesticated strains for the hobby.
