Best place to order fish?

What is the best online store that you all know if to order fish? I know live aquaria and reefs2go and blue zoo aquatics... Any others you recommend? Looking for a small rabbit foxface (no spot) and blue zoo is out of stock and the other two don't offer a choice of spot or no spot. Thanks in advance!

Have you tried asking your LFS if he can order some.

I heard REALLY bad reviews about reefs2go. I mean even if there livestock is decent for the price, people complain about the customer service. Only ordered a CUC from reefcleaners...just get my fish/corals from my lfs, but I'd say that LA and Blue Zoo are very high quality. Vivid Aquariums' selection and quality is incredible. They require a $150 min. and I'm sure those other online stores do too. There is also saltwaterfish.com and thatpetplace.com, but never heard much about those.

Live aquaria is good and reefs2go, I used R2G about 15 times and never had any issues. LA I used a few times with nothing bad to report. Reef cleaners IMHO is over kill if you go by there suggestion. Your better off building your own CUC. other then that I haven't dealt too much with online for live stock.

I don't like getting fish online so I usually ask my LFS to order fish.

I live 30 miles from that fish place. Good quality of fish and excellent customer service. Never dealt with the shipping part but they are the only place i go for fish and supplies

Your local fish store (LFS) can't order you fish? I live in Daytona Beach and I am lucky to have an Amazing fish store, Poseidon's Aquarium.

$45 from the lfs beats $25+$35 or more shipping. Hope you find a deal!
