That is ridiculous! When I was at a petsmart last, I saw a 75g tank for a little over $200... Man that's just insane that's the price of fish. Crazy.

I enjoy ordering online. The actual fish/plant/invert prices aren't too bad, it's the shipping that kills me though

Shipping on fish is crazy. I've only ordered plants from aquabid or from jetajockey because they have plants that my LFS doesn't. I've almost ordered fish but I can't bring myself to pay the shipping.

Yep. I ordered 8 assassin snails and they were like 5$ a pop. After all was said and done, my bill was 80$!!!

Yeah shipping is the bad side BUT.... If you go in with a few friends like I do it's not that bad

I actually bought my Synodontis Multipunctatus for 12.99 at a LFS, online it's priced at 44.99. I'm thinking I got a good deal on her.
