Buying Fish Online??
I was wondering if anyone knows of a reputable place you can purchase fish online? Long story short, I have about a dozen Threadfin Rainbow fish. Unfortunately I've lost a few females over the years & now have more males than females. They are no longer schooling like they use to. I have checked every LFS in my area, to no avail. I was always fearful about purchasing fish online - for obvious reasons, but I thought I would ask & see if anyone has done this before & knows of a reputable dealer. I also question if this would be too stressful for the fish?
I would want one day delivery & obviously will be home when delivered. Delivery charges isn't a factor. I would obviously pay a higher price from a reputable company.
I guess my questions are:
Any recommendations of on line dealers?
Is it too stressful for the fish?
Thanks in advance for any advice you can give!

hey i have been looking and while i have not ordered yet, these guys seem to really have there stuff in order, i think i read something like 1 in 4000 DOA?
anyway thought i would reply take it or leave it!
I don't have experience in online. But I will add that unless your local Store raises it's own fish, they get them over night shipped from a breeder. So it's done more often then you might think.
Thank you very much for the link - 1 in 4000 are great odds. I will research their site. Thanks again!
I was thinking of that also. I am sure many stores have fish that arrived DOA. I guess my fear was a company not shipping them out promptly. I don't want the poor things in transit for a few days.
Thanks for your thoughts!
