The problem with only shopping in the stores is LFS only carry certain fish. Big box stores don't carry exotics like some people like and online is a lot cheaper to buy. I have never purchased fish online because I am to cheap to pay for shipping, but I know there are a ton of people who do.

Yeah,I guess if your fish store doesn't have what you want, then you have to buy online, but just make sure they have some sort of guarantee so if your fish arrive dead, they will replace it for free

Re: best place to buy fish online?

did my first online fish buying last weekend from aquabid.com. havnt recieved fish yet, as they are being "conditioned" but aquabid seems like a great way for people to get the specific fish they are looking for from a trusted seller

70 gallon- Betta Enisae pair, betta Ocellata pair, female Betta Pugnax

29 Gallon- Betta Pallifina and Betta Patoti

20 Gallon- Betta Gladiator

5 Gallon- Betta Channoides

And numerous Betta Splendens

Coming soon: Betta Macrostoma :D

Re: best place to buy fish online?

I strongly recommend buying fish online once you do your research. I have multiple purchases from The Wet Spot in Oregon. Their stock and quality of fish are second to none. If you are looking for African Cichlids I would take a look at the Cichlid Exchange in Florida. Billy provides the best customer service I have ever come across and again their stock and quality are superb.

Re: best place to buy fish online?

I have had great luck with the following:
Select Aquatics - Oddball livebears and a few others
Consolidated fish farm-Corys, gouramis, common cichlids
Aquabid, Hansypatty - If they have it, it will be excellent quality
