What OFS (online fish stores) do you use?

I have used www.transfishsupplies.com and www.petwarehouse.com with great results.

Just seeing if any other locals used online stores.

I plan to order from www.saltwaterfish.com and www.logicalreef.com sometime.
I would also like to order from www.premiumaquatics.com considering they are in Indy , the shipping rates might be good. Plus they do price matching.

sounds good to me. my problem was with Premiumaquatics. I don't know if it was them or Airborne Express. AE said it was premium, Premium said it was AE either way between them and AE the zipcode was messed up and the shipment of livestock was not recieved for like four days. it happened twice and i called and told them about it and they took care of it both times by giving me store credit plus shipping back. the second time i think they even threw in some extra stuff. i can't remember for sure. I would say they handled the mess up very well. so just becareful. see what you think.

yeah some of it but they gave me a full refund for everything. one thing that didn't do to well were the scarlet reef crabs. because i ordered over the summer and those things were baked in that bag i don't think any of them were even in there shell.

I've been using www.liveaquaria.com lately. Good prices and quick shipping. Some of the other really good OFS are within easy driving distance from me (Inland, Premium, Harbor, anything in Chicago), so I really don't bother ordering online from them.
