mail order fish
Since re-discovering my passion for aquarium keeping, I've visited over a dozen aquarium suppliers in the LA area. I've seen brackish puffers available in two locations - in one, they all were giant and emaciated, in the other they said they got brackish puffers only rarely and kept them in fresh water when they did, and couldn't predict when another might come.
I'm cycling a brackish tank for a baby figure 8 puffer, and at the end of the month, when the tank is cycled, I don't know where to find one!
I'm assuming the pet stores all get their fish by mail anyway, so maybe it would be best to remove the middle-man and mail-order my puffer from the source??
Do other folks get their rare fish this way? Can anyone recommend a reliable supplier?
