Re: online fish store-good or evil?
Ordering fish online has worked for many. I think there are two (possibly three) big things in favor of online stores:
1) You can get fish you can't get locally.
2) Fish are shipped directly to you, so all the extra transport and changes involved in being shipped to a LFS first are cut out, so less stress and probably less exposure to other fish which might carry disease.
3) It can be much cheaper, particularly when you are making a large order.
Still it's hard too beat seeing and choosing the fish as you say. When buying from the LFS they get to deal with unhealthy and DOA fish.
