purchase fish online?
Apologies in advance if this has been discussed before, honest, I searched before asking. I live in the counrty and we only have 1 pet store which sells pet fish within 30 miles. (unless you count walmart and meijer). several times now, I have brought home fish that weren't quite right. i.e. swimming in circles, showing signs of great stress, appearing to have ich on them, missing one eye, and otherwise undesirables, from that one pet store. I'm losing faith in them as a reliable source for healthy fish, but my options are limited given my location. I have given thought to shopping online for live pet fish. I've looked around a bit and prices seem decent, also they is a wider variety of available fish from online sites. Still, I am reluctant to trust them as well. I'm curious of your opinions on shopping online for fish and having them sent to your home. Am I so old fashioned that this is the common way it's done today and I just haven't caught on? Are there any specific websites you trust and have had satisfying experiences with?
