I Actually got the majority of my fish from saltwaterfish.com. For one, I don't Necessarily trust the LFS
's and I have 4. SWfish keeps their fish in cupramine dosed tanks and they do a great job packing and shipping. They have deals all the time. Get on their email list to stay up to speed.
Shipping is 35 up to like 100 then it goes down. So, when you're ready, place and order large enough and get free shipping. Ppl go in together and split shipping as well.
Liveaquaria has a guarantee just like SWfish, but to me, the kicker is the cupramine. I've had issues with both but chalk up those issues to extenuating circumstances rather than operational or quality of the shopper.
Don't limit what you want by your location.
You may want to try and find a hobbyist looking to unload a purple. With the conflicts in the region, I'm told they've stopped exporting so the price has exceeded 250. Last year you could buy for under 100
