Yes, there are online stores that ship fish, like liveaquaria.com, for one. I have ordered fish, snails, and plants online with excellent results, from both individuals and stores. bigalspets.com is a Canadian company, though I don't think they sell fish. I would suggest you check out Aquabid.com. Once your tank is cycled, you can research what fish and plants you want and go there to see what's available. The listings have little flags to tell you what country the shipper is located plus new things are listed all the time. They also have tanks, parts, and pretty much anything you need for the hobby.
