My name is Jim and I just joined this forum yesterday. I'm from the great and beautiful state of Wyoming. I set up a small tank a couple weeks ago, but still need to buy some fish for the tank. I'm still trying to decide what I want to put in it. Right now I'm leaning toward guppies. It might be a while until I can get to a town that has a pet shop. The closest big(?) city is about 2 hours away. I could get some from one of the places on the internet, but I'm reluctant to have fish sent through the mail. Anyone have some experience with a internet store? Can someone recommend a good place.
I buy almost all drygoods on the Internet and some livestock too. It makes a difference with salt water due the high price of each specimen. Not sure it makes sense for common freshwater species though.
Have you cycled your tank yet? Don't forget to check out the articles section here too.
Having fish shipped isn't as difficult or risky as many people think. We've sent and received fish all over the country with only very rare issues. Afterall, your LFS has their fish shipped to them for resale.
