Experience Buying Fish Online?

Anyone know a reputable online freshwater fish retailer? I don't want to buy from PetSmart/PetCo in my area because they don't know what they're doing and they don't take care of their fish.

I tried an LFS that had a few good reviews online in my area but the man who helped me gave me little or no information and the information he did give me was wrong. I ended up buying several items I did not need.

That's why I joined this forum. To get help when I need it from people who have experience. I'll be adding fish to my tank in the (hopefully somewhat) near future and I need a good online retailer from someone who has ordered fish successfully online before.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

W.

I haven't heard any feedback from this site, but Drs Foster and Smith (www.drsfostersmith.com). I know a few people on here that have purchased live plants from them and said it was great with no issues, I'm sure someone on here has purchased fish too. Just need to find those people lol. Sorry not much help I'm in the same situation right now. :)

Thanks GF. I'm fairly new here as well but welcome to TFK. This place is SO helpful. I've heard of Dr F & S - I just wanted to know of anyone who had experience ordering from them or any other online tropical fish retailer and what the result might have been. Once I'm sure my tank and existing fish are Ok, I'll probably go in that direction. I'll post on here how it goes.
