New order from liveaquaria

I just put in my first order from liveaquaria. I am freaking excited. I stumbled upon the two corals I wanted more than anything else. I made myself sleep on it, but woke up and ordered away. From the diver's den I snagged a Blue Synphodium and a Blue trumpet coral with 34 heads!!! I also grabbed a aquacultered purple australian big polyp blasto and another aquacultured blue trumpet coral frag. Really excited to add these to my tank and then in a month, move it all over into my new 55 gallon!

Sounds like really nice stuff, I'd be stoked too! It's Synphodium huh? Cool, thought it was Sympodium, but that was verbal from my lfs. Live aquaria has great stuff, but always seems really pricey. Enjoy your new pieces.

Without getting it, I will tell you that they are quality. They wouldn't be in the position they are in and as well known as they are without being on their a game. If you are on the western side of pa maybe after they grow we can trade frags

Near Pittsburgh by chance? I wouldn't mind finding some people to trade with

Compared to what I have around for LFS, their prices are great! Easily 50% less than local (unless you count PetCo, whose animals I don't trust). I would not buy frags from them, though. (Colony pricing seems competetive though.) I've found some good stores I can travel to on business that I get great deals from.

Also, they guarantee animals for 14 days. No LFS around me does that. In fact, I'm pretty sure they only guarantee it gets out their front door alive. Last time I made a claim, all it took was a phone call.

If shipping seems high, think of what it costs to send a small package next day air from the UPS Store. It's reasonable. You can also order with a friend or save up and order for several tanks (or some of the higher end stuff) to get free shipping at $225 of livestock.

The down side is that unless you're ordering from their WYSIWYG section, you are buying blind.

Order from them all the time. I wait until I can order $225 for the free shipping.

My order just shipped a couple hours ago. I'll have it by 430 tomorrow! I can't wait to get them in the tank and take pics.
