Where is the best place to buy fish ONLINE

He I was just wondering where the best place was to buy fish and inverts online. I work at a pet shop but the prices are high and not really a big selection. Thank you!!!

We have several vendors on the site that have good quality products.I buy my fish at the LFS though. Even though the price is a little higher I am able to see what the fish looks like and if there is any problem with them. I do realize that not everyone has a reliable LFS near their home. I do buy all my supplies online at our vendors here at the site.

I agree with above post. Another advantage to buying livestock at the LFS, is that they have a much shorter, gentler ride to your house. This is usually the last leg of many blacked-out trips from the corners of the world, and having this last ride be an easy one, I feel, helps a lot. Especially if the fish have been properly quarantined at the LFS for a couple weeks to regain their strength.

Well in that case, if there aren't any near you, I would have to suggest Live Aquaria.com. It's through Drs. Foster and Smith. I've never ordered livestock through them, only supplies, but their reputation speaks for itself.
