There are so many fish out there but I can't stand the thought of having to pay for shipping.

You also get a guarantee along with the shipping fee pretty much. Thats how I rationalize the shipping fees. theres been a few times when I got a new fish and it mysteriously passes like the next day with no sign of anything wrong and I'm out the money. At least thru online most retailers give up to a 14 day guarantee. I have yet to find a lfs that offers anything even close.

After I lost alot of my stock in the 125g a few months ago the lfs didnt even offer ANYTHING, not even a snail, and it was clearly and undoubtedly the fish I bought from him that introduced something that took out the new fish i got from him as well as a few of my older fish.

I'm fixing to place a live aquaria order pretty soon and the shipping charge is just killing me. lol BUT i got 14 days for the fish to either get sick or be fine.

I know liveaqauria will just refund your credit card if you want or you can keep it as an instore credit for your next order. And nope, you pay again and no refunds on shipping either. So it is still a gamble in a way.

When I lost a candycane goby in my cube from petsolutions.com they only could give me a store credit which took me a few months to actually use. i like LA's guarantee and refund policy alot more than others.

One of these days I'll be brave enough to buy fish online. I know it was mentioned in another thread. Maybe kio's. But do I need to take a sick day from work to receive it?

That is one of the things stopping me. My wife would be home but I don't think she would want to do the acclimation. She would rather I do it.

Nothing stupid about it. In part it was watching the midnight angel twitch in the store that I liked. I'm glad they didn't have a flame angel. This guy is fun to watch.

Nothing stupid about watching a fish for 5-10 minutes before buying...I do it everytime I buy a fish, heck I watch fish at my lfs without buying them. You can truly learn alot by understanding their swimming habits.
