What do you all think about this website?

http://www.saltwaterfish.com/site_11...ory=4&x=5&y=14

I like the pics of the fish, but what do you all think about the pricing and shipping charges? Are they competative? Anyone got an experience of this site?

The pricing is good, but not great after you add in shipping. Also, I noticed that they sell Moorish Idols - seems irresponsible given the likelihood that this fish will die in captivity; reason to boycott IMO.

What part of Texas do you live in? If you are in the Houston area, I can recommend a couple of very good lfs's.

The info section seems to be lacking. It doesn't list minimem tank size for tangs, or that a manderin needs a year old tank with lots of pods. But prices are ok

I would buy there for big order, they seem very reasonable compared to other places and they sure do beat out my lfs. Some things they have are very well priced! Has anyone had any experience with them? I am curious as to their quality!

I ordered from them about 2 months ago. I got 2 fish, 2 ricordia polyps, 2 cleaner shrimp and 4 peppermint shrimp. All arrived in excellent condition and are still thriving except for 3 of the peppermint shrimp. Not sure what happened to them. I never found any bodies.

Make sure you order in advance if you have to take off work to be home for fish deliveries like me It takes a few days for your order to process so I was not exactly sure what day it was coming until I got the e-mail the night before.

Some like them and some don't. OK by me so far

I guess it just depends on where you live and what's available in your area. Their prices are no better than either of the lfs's that I usually go to.

If you get stuff on sale, it is better. I got 2 ricordia for $10 and the peppermint shrimp were 3.95 I think. This is cheaper than I can get locally. One fish I got was 12.99 and locally they are $22-24. They have flame angels for 29.99 sometimes and here they are at least $40.

Their snail prices are high though.

I bought 3 cleaner shrimp, a feather duster, and some nassarius snails from them about 3 months ago. All are fine, in fact one cleaner is carry eggs right now. No complaints here.
