For Fish & Sundry

For fish I'd suggest either of these two sites:

http://www.liveaquaria.com or http://saltwaterfish.com

For supplies (and there are many more): http://www.thatfishplace.com

Now you have to factor in shipping costs to see if you're really getting a deal. Also, your lfs may be a relationship worth cultivating so there might be a trade-off there.

If I had a decent local retail outlet to look to for suppiles I would probably buy stuff local and online. I do alot of my stuff online because the local stores are very poor for quality.

liveaquaria.com has a 10 day arrive alive guarintee on many of their fish. Most local shops dont give you a single days worth of guarintee.
