    Pros - Great Selection of Tarantulas
    Cons - none
    I purchased a B.Emilia, A. Purpurea, Grammastola Pulchra. One of each. At the age of 77, for now I decided to start back with easy and handleable Ts. Forget T. Blondi, P. Metallica, P. Platyomma, Violacepes and the fun Power Venom Ts and S. Heros Centipedes.
    I raised them and I loved them and still do. For my wife. my health is concern enough.
    Joe Rossi made it easy to get the Ts I wanted and now have them in deli cups a few days later. I took the box outside to the summer kitchen where the light is good and enjoyed unwrapping each one. I recommend you checking out his stock there are many choices some mild and some very exciting.

    I was kind of nervous about purchasing from a forum , but I had a wonderful experience. Joe had great communication, prices, and packing. I am very impressed. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting ts.

    Pros - JoeRossi made everything simple and concise. The whole process was fast, JoeRossie was quick to respond to my inquiries and concerns. He helped me find a couple of alternative species to my primary request which was sold out. He went out of his way to help get the spiders to me quickly and safely. Highly recommend.
    Cons - I've always been a terrible critic because I don't want to hurt anyones feelings. But in this case I can honestly say there was no negative component to this interaction
    I've generally been very nervous about sales and transactions online that would be considered 'private', and by that I mean not associated with some giant company like amazon. When I contacted JoeRossi regarding his posting I wasn't sure what to expect. Joe replied to me with professionalism and kindness that assuaged my concerns. He then went above and beyond helping me choose some spiders that would be similar to the one I originally contacted about that was unfortunately sold out.

    The whole process was quick and easy. I would have no issue recommending JoeRossi to friends and family. I will definitely buy from him in the future.

    Pros - Great species, great service!
    Cons - None:)
    IMG_0338.JPG While searching high and low for T seladonia, we discovered that Joe had them in the past so we sent a message inquiring. Joe responsed quickly and we were told he could get us some on his next import. These have been my wife's dream spider so we were pretty grateful to have found him.

    Joe was great to work with all around. Great communication and very quick to answer any questions we had. Our initial order consisted of four Typochlaena seladonia, five Theraphosinae sp "Colombia" sp1, three Theraphosinae sp "Colombia" sp2, and one Sericopelma sp "chica".

    There was a Fed Ex shipping delay somewhere along the way. Joe immediately filed a case and spent much time on the phone with them trying to iron it out. Sadly one of the T seladonia died after molting in transit. :( At no fault, Joe still gave us a Psalmopoeus victorii for our loss, which I thought was very generous of him. The box ended up arriving in 19 hours late. The box was still warm inside and packed very nicely. Things couldn't have been done better on Joe's end.

    Since Joe was going to send the P victorii and we were so pleased with how everything turned out, we decided to place another order right away. ;) we got two more Psalmopoeus victorii, three Psalmopoeus sp "midnight jade", two Hapalopus sp "Colombia" small, two Grammostola pulchra, two Idothele mira, and two Avicularia sp "Colombia". The second package arrived on time and was packed as perfectly as the first shipment. All came out happy, alive, and kickin'. :)

    Joe knew how upset we were at the loss of the seladonia. A few days after receiving our second shipment, Joe came upon someone selling their T seladonia from the last import. He was on it from first thing in the morning to make sure we ended up with it and we couldn't be more grateful. He sent us a message letting us know about it and within a few hours he had all parties involved in a group text. Without Joe's help, we probably wouldn't have known the spider was even for sale.

    Joe really went the extra mile to assure we were happy and has been one of the best sellers I've ever worked with. I would definitely purchase again from him and would quickly recommend him to anyone looking for cool new species. Great selection of spiders, excellent service all around, and a very good guy. You won't be disappointed. :)

    Pros - Excellent customer service!! Great communication!! Fantastic inventory!
    Cons - None
    Just received 3 Diversipes from Joe in great condition with excellent packaging.

    The overnight shipment was delayed due to weather and Joe went out of his way to stay in contact with FedEx and myself in order to expedite the delivery. In fact, he knew the package was delayed before I did.

    A true professional with top notch communication and quick shipping!

    Pros - The prices were great. Joe's communication was fantastic. My tarantulas were in great shape.
    Cons - None. It was a perfect experience.
    I contacted Joe about the P. auratus slings he had listed. and he got back to me super fast. His communication through the entire transaction was excellent; he even took the time to reach out when FedEx delayed the delivery of my package (I've NEVER had a dealer do that before!). My new acquisitions arrived safe and sound, looking active, plump and healthy. The packing was perfect, as evidenced by the fact that my packaged was stuck overnight in the snowy midwest, and they STILL arrived perfectly fine. I'd do business with Joe again in a heartbeat!

    Pros - Great communication throughout the transaction, easy to work with.
    Cons - None at all
    I want to thank Joe for reaching out to me on a trade for my MM Grammostola iheringi. After negotiation on what I wanted from his sale list he, price matched another vendor and I picked 3 Holothele cf sericea slings for the MM. Due to conditions beyond our control I received one sling DOA on my end and the big beautiful MM lost a rear leg during transit. ;)
    After a lengthy phone conversation and several text messages we came to an agreeable solution that worked for both of us.
    I just seen the video of the pairing with his female and the 7 legged MM got the job done successfully. I wish him the best, it would be good to see some US breed iheringi in the hobby. Maybe he will share the video?
    Thanks Joe!!
