bluezooaquatics.com is awesome. Just make sure you quarantine where ever you buy from. I didn't, and now I'm running a hospital tank! joyous occasions!

I've got fish from bluezooaquatics twice. I didn't quarantine the fish when I got them, instead I put them directly into my DT. One of the fish got ich, and 2 others were scraping against the sand and rocks. So I had to set up a hospital tank and treat with copper. If I would have quarantined them at the beginning I would be done and ich free.

Basically - quarantine any fish you get, whether it's from the LFS or online.
