you could also try bluezoo aquatics, I've ordered from them many times. if there was a problem they always took care of it and there was always someone to talk to.

I have had livestock delivered to me a work many times in the past 8 years. I have never had a problem waiting to get home that night to start acclimating when buying from a reputable company (LiveAquaria, BlueZoo, etc.)

The worst thing you could do is open the box at work and take the fish out. That would stress the fish much more than leaving it in the bag till you get home. The bag needs to be brought up to the tank temp before opening. At that point you need to start acclimating the fish with water from the tank. You can't do either of those at work, unless your tank is at work.

I've also gotten some from Saltwaterfish.com and they came ok. They screwed up once but took care of it immediately, so I would recommend them. Customer service was great with them. When you buy from them they give you reward points so you can accumulate them and get free stuff which is alway nice .
