Ordering fish online
 
So I have completed my move and am resetting my fishtank but my LFS has a very limited selection. How succesful will I be if I order fish online? I have never done it before and was wondering what I need to know.

also ask your lfs if they can get in other fish. most of them have way larger selections than they actually carry. i would say on average my lfs carries 20 species of freshwater fish. i saw what all they can order, their order sheets were like 10 pages at least. anything ive asked for they can get.

i think online dealers do well to maintain their reputations. but if your lfs can get the fish you want let them ship it in. if it comes it dead their loss not yours. also shipping on fish is outrageous. i see a lot of sellers only guaranteeing live arrival on express shipping and thats like 35 bucks. just be careful and read the fine print.
