That's the before shipping price, right? If you're paying another $35 to ship him, what's the use?
First of all, most people do not buy just one fish when they make an online purchase. There can be substantial savings even with the shipping, when you are buying additional things such as snails, crabs, corals, more fish etc.
Another reason people buy online is that the vast majority of stores do not carry a very good variety, just the more common, clowns, damsels etc.
Some online vendors offer nice guarantees of 5-10 days...most LFS
will not do that.
As far as the well adjuisted fish at the LFS
, most don't stay in stock long enough to become adjusted, before being sold yet again and have to through another acclimation process.
Supporting your LFS
is not a bad thing. I am not saying that, but the implication that buying online is not very smart, is not well founded in fact either.
