I just ordered two fish online from PetZone in San Diego, California.

They next day shipped it. Costs me $39.00. It was here very quick well packaged.

I've ordered from liveaquaria, petsolutions and aquacon so far. The first two were great, aquacon not so great. lol

Depending on what state you are in you might be able to find one that ships cheap. Usually though shipping is at least $35 though. the fish come in separate bags in a styrofoam box with heat or ice packs depending on the time of year. I've only lost some shrimp and all the fish have been successes.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I use liveaquaria. I love their divers den fish and corals. Love how they quarantine and make sure the fish is healthy.

Wow thanks all for the info will be doing some looking at those places!!

Do you all ever buy fish from other people on here? Or Craigslist?? Is that a scary thing because you don't know about other peoples tanks or water quality?
