Hey everyone i was wondering if any of you have any good websites you have used in the past for ordering fish. I got alot of good ones when i last asked this for plants, so im hoping you guys have some good results this time.

Thank you

You should also consider placing an order through your own LFS. Often, the LFS has a list of species they keep stocked and order those from their suppliers, but the suppliers have other fish available that the store doesn't regularly buy. However, it's no big deal for the supplier to throw in a few extra fish for a customer, so that way you can get fish that the LFS doesn't normally carry without paying for the (expensive) cost of shipping live fish, plus you don't have to deal with sick/DOA fish as that'll be between the LFS and the supplier.

I agree with above post and see what your LFS can do. If you know your LFS can not get high quality fish, then look for the best available on the web.

I have ordered from and absolutely love the fish i get from him. Great service.
I have also purchased from and had great results.
