The big thing with online vendors for livestock is to make sure they have an "arrive alive" and 14day guarentee on their stuff. Also, check to mae sure they do not have any hidden packaging or box charges for shipping. I have used liveaquaria several times are have been happy. Just read ALL shipping information carefully.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

I have found that you should always look at some LFSs to compare first. You would be surprised. Certain fish at one store might be considerably cheaper at another. Don't forget to account for your shipping costs.

I personally buy my fish from petsolutions.com because the LFSs around here don't have a large selection. I have absolutely no complaints about petsolutions.com at all. I have actually had worse luck with LFSs
