Peoples EXP with buying fish/corals online

hey all its talon again, now that my tank is up and running to par i have plans to change my second 50g tank to a salt water tank. this tank i wanted to get some corals and more exotic creatures to go with it but the only option i have to get those is to either drive 6 hours to the nears big pet store or order online. I would like to know your guys thoughts about buying fish/corals/invertibraes online and if you could direct me to a good site.

right now the site i have had my eye on is saltwaterfish.com

I have not see this discussion here at TFK before. I only buy in person. If you do buy online, you will want a quarantine tank ready when the fish arrive, for sure.

I've heard great reviews of Liveaquaria.com, which is where I plan to purchase my salt stock. I know most pictures just 'represent' what you're buying. They have a 'diver's den' area of the site where you see real pictures of the exact fish/coral/item you're buying, so that's neat. They also guarantee for 14 days after purchase.

I agree with liveaquaria.com. Also, Vividaquariums.com is an excellent resource. They do an excellent job and have a gaurantee as well.

Good luck,
John
