See, i wasnt really going to get into this thread because this whole thread is all purely preference. Whether you trust the site or not.. or the amount of feedback you've heard from others on the site your buying from. But one thing i was going to say was, if anything, i trust liveaquaria the most. AA is also linked to premiumaquatics which sells living things online. I dont think AA would have linked to them if they weren't trusted right? Not saying that the occasional tragedy wouldnt happen? Also, im not sure how they ship corals or fish, but i know that liveaquaria ships the live rock in an air-tight, cushioned box/bag sort of thing. It says it on their site, and mainly, if you want to know how each site ships their products, its in your best interest to go to that site and either read up on it on their shipping page, or contact them somehow. I know that an online site will have WAY more selections than some LFS
's. But then again.. this is all personal preference LOL.
