I have never purchased livestock from them, but I have bought Hardware before and they were great. They have been around for over 30 years (My LFS had old marine magazines from the 60's-80's 5 for a buck, I bought a few and saw the add there) so imagine they have ironed out most of there shipping bugs
On a side note, the old fish magazines were pretty cool, Its amazing how much differently some things and attitudes are now compared to then.
Peace,
Zero

www.liveaquaria.com is having a sale on LR. 45# runs $98.99. To the door, it would be about $150 with shipping. That is $3.30 a lb. Pretty cheap for darn good LR. I have 45# of it myself and love the colors.

Room to deal

OK I'm posting in new acquisitions even thought nothin is to acquired as of yet, but I have room to deal. I found a somewhat local (45 minutes) who placed an ad with no bites yet. Here's the run down:

135 Oceanic
Plumbed stand
CPR (1000 I think) wet/dry <I really don't need
ETSS Skimmer w/pump <Drooled on myself
Rainbow 25W UV sterilizer
and for shame; 100+ lbs of dead dry fiji (nice base rock though)

all for $750

I thinks it's a bit steep for used equipment but in reality not bad. I called to ask about the skimmer, UV, and rock (willing to give it up at .50 a lb) and he gave me a rather high quote for just the three. Somewhere in the vacinity of $300. BUT I think I have room to move here. With no hits the ball is kinda in my court. Comments?

The only majpr drawbacks I find are that I really don't need the 135 and my wife will kill me!

well it is not a need thing so as far as the wife killing you here are some ideas that my hubby has used on me with much success. 1st one and probably works the best is he buys something for the kids and me (so that he is the only one that did not get something)...makes sure he points that out...the guilt factor works great. if the first one does not work very rarely points out how much more he could be spending on other things that would take him away from home...or other choice would be for him to tell me how he intends to pay it off out of his lunch money(brings back guilt factor) 8O
